Vue Vs. React
Comparison of Vue and React would be made using the following parameters
Popularity and Community support
According to StackOverflow, #react.js has more questions than #vue.js, with approximate values of 115.900 and 27.000 questions, respectively. React js also has more npm packages available for developers than Vue js, with about 50.000 and 14.000 npm packages, respectively.
Vue is more flexible than React. Regardless of the size of the application being developed, Vue has been found to be more intuitive than React JS. The functionalities offered by Vue JS are more than the ones offered by React JS, making it a more dynamic framework for creating applications. Some of the functionalities possessed by Vue JS include a server-side renderer to allow for the rendering of the server-side. It also enables the management of the app’s URL using Vue Router and Vuex, which is used for state management.
Mobile App Development
The performance rate for both is quite close. Using the js-framework-benchmark to compare React JS and Vue JS shows that after the page is loaded, 187.6 ± 4.3 ms and 169.2 ± 3.6 ms are consumed, respectively, to create 1000 rows. The benchmark also reveals that on a 1K table having about 5 warmup iterations, React JS and Vue JS take 19.6 ± 4.7 ms and 21.8 ± 4.5 ms to swap 2 rows.
They both have the same development speed. What makes the difference is the developers’ skills and coding experience.
Lastly, it should be noted that there are two essential and crucial parts that should be considered when developing a web or mobile app, these are the selection of the right framework to use and the right developers to perform the task.
