What is the difference between React and Angular?
Let’s see the difference between React and Angular in a table format.
|React is a library and has only the View layer||Angular is a framework and has complete MVC functionality|
|React handles rendering on the server side||AngularJS renders only on the client side but Angular 2 and above renders on the server side|
|React uses JSX that looks like HTML in JS which can be confusing||Angular follows the template approach for HTML, which makes code shorter and easy to understand|
|React Native, which is a React type to build mobile applications are faster and more stable||Ionic, Angular’s mobile native app is relatively less stable and slower|
|In React, data flows only in one way and hence debugging is easy||In Angular, data flows both way i.e it has two-way data binding between children and parent and hence debugging is often difficult|
Note: The above list of differences are purely opinionated and it vary based on the professional experience. But they are helpful as base parameters.
