React and Angular: Impacting Web Experience and Technology
Developed by Facebook, react is lightweight and extendable and used by static page builders like GatsbyJS and NextJS.
“The library is a good choice for large web applications and allows processing data without frequent and annoying page reloadings. Instead of re-inventing the wheel, you can use one of the available components, which can significantly decrease the development time.” –Medium
Developed by Google, Angular is a fully featured framework. Used by Ionic, the cross-platform hybrid mobile app development framework.
“Angular is an extremely powerful tool that supports heavily object-oriented programming and the development of very intricate applications. Everything I’ve had to do with it so far I’ve found a way to achieve and it’s made finding said solutions a pretty painless process because of its massive following. Learning to develop in angular was every bit the experience I’d hoped it would be.” – Moonshot Developer.
React and Angular Capabilities
React and Angular create blazing fast user experiences with single-page applications so when a user visits a URL the web browser turns into a modern application platform. Then the content is swapped out on demand and the webpage never actually reloads yet content updates and displays dynamically. React and Angular source code compiles into simple, portable packages which can be hosted on a wide variety of servers, and serverless cloud hosting platforms.
Both technologies have become increasingly popular over the last few years and by continuing to explore how they can be the most beneficial to websites and app development will only continue to expand in the future.
