Angular vs React – Which Is Best For Web Development

Angular JS and React JS both are getting enormous growth in recent times, As the hype increases, developers and enterprises are confused to choose the right one. Before judging through the fame of both languages let’s sit and discuss the up’s & downs of both languages to outline the best that suits for us.

An introduction To Angular And React

Angular is developed by the Google and it’s full web application framework that supports client side where as the React is developed by Facebook. Plus, React is a library which supports both client side and server side application. You can make react into a complete framework just by adding few libraries. However, the functionality will be totally different in both arena.

Model Complexity

It’s quite hard to handle large models in Angular and compels us to break the big modules. On other hand, Code will be simpler to use and easily testable.
Coming to React, it will give the freedom for developers to choose and work the modules they wanted to bring. And, that will not impact on the performance. Likewise, the output is entirely depends on the adequacy of the developers.


Angular follows a system driven approach that will help us to write the code easily. Sometimes, it’s harder for us to debug when the loop is longer than it’s expected. Though, with the help of logical constructs we can get it done. If the logical constructors are used correctly then we can easily debug and test the code.
React has two way of proceedings, It can be achieved either updating the model nor rendering the flow. Also, It reduces the risk of analyzing the bugs which means the developer need not to check the entire code instead checking very fewer places would be more than enough to clear the bugs.

Data Binding

Angular utilizes two way binding, which means the values of DOM connected to the model data through the controller. In brief, when the user try to insert values in the input field, after insertion, the value will get updated in both the model and view. The two way data binding is an fruitful feature for developers as it reduces the risk of writing more code. With fewer interactions between the components, developers can easily achieve it with less code and they need not to write a new method to track the changes that occurs. But a bit considerable note of this method is sometimes it might impact the performance.

Compared to Angular, React uses one way binding which allow us to direct the data in only one direction. Thus it becomes clear for developers to identify where the changes or data been modified so they can keep everything under control. So it’s easier for us to test and track even the large application of React than processing it with Angular. To mention, Previous versions of React has two way of binding but After React V15 release all the version neglects two way binding.

Dependency Injection

The fundamental oop concept of Angular require us to write the dependencies in separate file. that will not help us when we directly want to create a dependency in the required object. On other hand, The dependency injection of Angular is deep rooted with Angular’s standard functions. On this proceeding, even a small creep might get addressed as an issue while running and minimizing the code.
Basically, React doesn’t own any built-in container for dependencies.  But it provides several Possibilities to inject dependencies that means whenever the dependencies needed, then developers can automatically inject the dependencies in to the application. For instance, Browserify, RequireJS can accessed through Babel, ReactJS-di etc.

Directives and Templates

In Angular, You can use Directives to organize your code. If we want to access the DOM, we could access it only through directives and for the other possibilities, you can create your own DOM.
React allow us to define both the template and logic in same place. Even we can write the template logic in template itself. So. It would be more comfortable for us to define fast and save the time.

Learning Insights

Unlike other languages, Angular is easy to learn and adapt and coming to React JS, It has very less number of life cycle methods and self explained which is easy to adapt. Plus, One of the best and cool feature of React is that we don’t have to read the code. Obviously it would be less difficult for the developers to summarize and mingle with both React and Angular.
Angular JS and React, both are excellent to write single page applications. It’s depends on how we use the instruments based on the requirements. Both might seems difficult earlier, once you start learning the curves and start adapting the tools then it would be easier to use.
