React JS took the spotlight in 2015 as being the most popular web technology for front-end application development but Angular 2 has recently stepped on the scene and is ready to contend! Let’s delve into the good, the bad, and the ugly of both sides. It’s React vs Angular 2 and it’s on.
Can we even compare Facebook’s library, React JS, with Google’s comprehensive framework, Angular 2? Well, do they do the same thing? Technically, no. But when you create a React application you will most likely be using libraries such as Redux, react-router, Immutable, and more. I would say that this whole collection of libraries puts React JS on an even playing field with the framework of Angular 2 as they both are different means to the same end. This alone sets the stage for where these technologies start to differ.
