Angular JS: The biggest question that always runs in the minds of the front end developers is about the tool that they have to use. There are so many tools available these days that deciding the right one in itself has become a huge process. The two of the most commonly used such tools are Angular JS and the React JS. Both the tools have their ups and downs. So depending on the work type, a developer can choose the framework that he wants to use.

Many experts do have a feeling that the two just cannot be compared as it would be like comparing a lion with an elephant. Each comes with its pros and cons. Further they believe that React is a library that deals with views, while Angular is a proper Framework. Angular is one of the best JavaScript frameworks. But in React, the developers add a few libraries themselves to
use it as a regular framework.

The below table gives a comparison between the two - Angular JS

The above table gives an overview of the two frameworks in general. Let us discuss about each technology in depth so that we get a better picture of the same. The basic difference between the two is the approach. Reactor is usually strengthened by Redux to give unidirectional data flow and work with immutable data while Angular has data binding by default. Further, when we consider the scalability, Angular is easily scalable because it has a good design and a powerful CLI. In React the code can be tested and used. Hence it is more scalable.

Advantages of Angular

International community support

This makes Angular the best Java script framework. Developer and designers work together all over the world to increase the credibility and reliability of the framework.

Full fledge framework

Angular is simpler and can run on any browser. It comes with good number of tools when compared to React.

Bi directional data flow

This is the top feature of the framework. It eliminated the need for further effort with data sync in view and model So to conclude it all we see that both the frameworks React and Angular work on completely diverse methods. But both help the front end developers of businesses to get an application off the ground. Both the technologies are flexible and powerful. It depends on the developer and the type of business for which the application is being developed at the end of the day that decides which of the two to use. Both the frameworks provide sturdy group of tools improve
the application in different ways. In our opinion, for those who prefer the classic JS, React may seem a good option, but for those developers who are more mature and prefer sophisticated solutions and require to work on complex and bigger applications, Angular JS is the best option.

We at Yugasa Software Labs work quite extensively on frontend technologies and have worked on multiple product developments for our clients using AngularJS as well as ReactJS. Feel free to reach us for any of your project development requirements at
