Which one is better : React vs Angular?

React is not a Framework

React is a library, not a framework. Lots of people name it a framework or compare it to frameworks. The reason React is often mistaken as a framework is because it appears like frameworks are React’s competitors.

Angular is a full Framework with backing for structures, HTTP solicitations, and a great deal more. It’s a finished toolbox to building a web application.


Frameworks are bigger than libraries. They include everything you may need to build applications.

  Tools Out Of The Box – React

React does not come with any REST tools for making HTTP requests. React does not come with any tools to handle client-side routing. It is just a library that helps you build amazing user interfaces. but You can use React with  Jquery, Angular, Flux or  Redux to build large scale single page web applications. you can also create your own Design patterns and use it with React

Tools Out Of The Box – Angular

Angular is a JavaScript framework that you can use to build large scale single page web applications. Angular comes with most everything you need to get some web development done.


You can say, “I’m learning Angular ”, and get started learning a single framework. Whereas  React is a little bit different. You could say, “I’m learning React”, learn how to build a React component, and then not know what to do next.

React was built on Facebook and Instagram, released initially in March 2013, then open-sourced on May 29, 2013.

Angular was Released and Open-sourced on 2009. The current version of Angular 2.0  is complete re-build of previous versions.

Loading Speed

The Angular 2 JavaScript file that loads in the browser is 764k, but it is rich with functionality.

The React JavaScript file that loads in the browser is 151k,  React is small because it is simply a view library

The Difference

React relies a lot on pure JavaScript and other JavaScript libraries.

Angular do not rely on a lot on pure JavaScript and other JavaScript libraries.

Two-way data binding makes some things really easy to implement

The “Always Re-render” way of React is nice to keep it easier to understand when things get complex


source – js blocks

clearly, js blocks is the winner here ;) I will be posting a separate review of js blocks. but you get the basic idea that react is faster as I mentioned above.

React is a small library that doesn’t come with everything you might need out of the box to build your application but give it 4  minutes you are ready to go,  all you need is tools like web pack, browserify, react router,  react motion, redux,  react addons, & enzyme e.tc . you can Learn Reactjs by building Real life apps.

In the angular js framework 1.x, in the DI container, all the instances were singletons. The same is the case with angular 2.0 by default. However, to get different behavior, we need to use services, providers, constants, and so on.
