In this high-level comparison of 2 popular JavaScript frameworks, we will look at the strengths and weaknesses of each. We will do this by diving into an application that we have written twice, once in Angular and once in React, and discuss the differences and similarities of both frameworks.

Routing, API calls, forms and communication between components are just a few things that you need to consider in any SPA. We will discover how React and Angular handle them.

The goal of this discussion is to give you a foundation of solid React and Angular practices and principles that you can make an educated decision about which framework will best fit the needs of your next JavaScript based application.

You will learn:

  • Understanding Angular Architecture
  • Understanding React Architecture
  • How to choose between Angular and React
