In current scenario everything is been judged on the basis of its first appearance and same is applicable with websites. These web pages are “face of business” showcasing their credibility, beliefs and quality to visitors. Since organizations are fully aware of this fact their priority has shifted towards having a website with appropriate front-end development by using most of technology and tools to lure audiences.  Now it’s understandable how front-end development is very crucial and considered as first impression for any webpage.

The process of front-end development is based on the formulation of intuitive yet concentric user interface for business websites. It involves various skill-set like HTML & CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, JavaScript Frameworks, CSS Frameworks, Version Controls/Git, CSS Preprocessors, Mobile/Responsive Design Testing, Browser Developer Tools, Web Performance/Automation Tester, Command Line, RESTful Services and APIs. Factors like Navigational Structure, Wireframe, Design Layout, Interactivity & Base Outline plays an important part in deciding suitable web technology for development. Based on above-mentioned criterion, popular JavaScript Frameworks in previous year were: Angular, Vue.JS, Chrome Developer Tool, NPM, Ionic 2,Grid Guide, Tensorflow, Meteor, Grunt, GIT Extensions, SublimeText, SASS, Backbone, Foundation, CodePen.

Increasing use of JavaScript tools has created a new challenge of choosing right technology between Angular & ReactNative as both are advanced, high performing and accepted widely  for cross-platform development.

Why Prefer AngularJs for Web Development?

AngularJs is JavaScript framework developed by Google which is useful for creating single page dynamic websites with underlying HTML & JavaScript codes to eliminate redundancy. It provides complete control of web application to developers through features like:

  • 2 Way Data Binding
  • MVC Architecture
  • Directives
  • Templates
  • Expressions
  • Modules
  • Scope
  • Templating
  • Filters
  • RESTful API
  • Ajax Handling
  • Modularization
  • Dependency Injection

Concept Behind of AngularJs

The purpose of developing AngularJS was combining essential components, design layout, and development practices in a single framework to face the challenges in creating single-page applications along with supporting standard models of community, controllers, views and services. This also led Angular towards MVC and dependency injection.

Striking Factors

Angular is efficient front-end development framework which is suitable for quick development. It has clean coding, high performance, better error rectification and easy to update functions.

Why Choose React for Web Development?

React is an open source JavaScript library by FaceBook to develop robust mobile applications and user interface (UI) through CLI (Command Line Interface) and templates. It provides flexibility of choosing tools and applies functional programming ideas to view layer with features like:

  • One Way Data Binding
  • WebPack Compatibility
  • Full JavaScript Controls
  • Cross-Platform Functionality
  • Easy Rendering
  • ES2015 Syntax /JavaScript Syntax
  • Virtual DOM (Document Object Model)

Ideology of ReactJs

The purpose of developing ReactJs was the utilization of reusable components, encouragement to write loosely coupled codes which are both modular and composable. Since there is no standard structure, programmers cannot create applications on their own.

Striking Factors

React is flexible yet simple framework for creating intuitive user experience in less time. It can be used for expanding applications, speedy developments, and portion testing and stabilizing codes.

Which One is Preferable?

App development companies choose any framework on the basis of client requirement, app’s purpose, system constraints, architecture, learning possibility, speed & productivity of development, easy updating and flexibility with freedom.  In contrast of these factors; Angular is reliable for creating front-end structure whereas React can add more features like improvising specific parts of application through integration of other frameworks like Blueprint or Backbone.

Conclusion

As optimum framework; both Angular and React have adequate functionalities as front-end technology, therefore, announcing better one itself is a tough call. But if you still require creative solutions, get-in-touch with our experts for ready to use solutions.
