Angular which is nothing but the latest version of AngularJS has arrived in 2016 and ever since became popular among developers of all niches. Modularity of the framework which allows utilising the framework across various projects is the key strength of Angular. This also helps Angular to remain lightweight and offer fast paced performance. Another core element is the Angular CLI which helps streamlining a project smoothly.
Here are the pros and cons of Angular.
- Angular comes with an expansive ecosystem of tools and resources.
- Angular is a mature framework that evolved through several key updates.
- Angular is capable of generating high quality code.
- Angular offers an elegant and well articulated programming style and syntax.
- Angular has a steep learning curve.
- Angular involves a lot of complexities for small budget projects.
- Angular because of the complexities and lot of tasks is less productive for developers.
Let’s have a quick look at the pros and cons of React framework.
- React is tremendously flexible.
- React has a smaller footprint in size.
- React updates are gradual and small enhancements that do not cause issues to stability.
- React can easily be combined and work with other libraries.
- React developers have some prior experience with other tools or programming languages.
- The learning curve is not straightforward simple as it depends on the chosen background solution.
- React doesn’t come with a very robust documentation.
Let’s have a look at the key pros and cons of the framework.
- Very little or negligible learning curve.
- Small footprint or size.
- Easy to set up.
- Easy to adopt across projects of different languages.
- Vue boasts of a very small set of tools.
- Vue is still young and has a developer community.
Here are the key pros and cons of the framework.
- NodeJS ensures optimum scalability for the apps.
- NodeJS offers a very low learning curve.
- NodeJS has full-stack development capability for most web apps.
- With full stack capability it can work on both server side and client side applications.
- Google V8 engine ensures optimum performance.
- It boasts of a huge developer community.
- NodeJS is known for very unstable API and this results in incompatible changes during updates.
- It boasts of a very small library compared to other frameworks.
Let’s have a quick look at the key pros and cons of BackboneJS.
- It’s extremely lightweight and low footprint framework in spite of being more of a library than just a framework.
- Because of being a less opinionated framework it doesn’t help developers a lot. This reduces the productivity of the developers.
- For the same reason of being less opinionated Backbone is unclear about architecture at times. This also lowers the development speed.
- BackboneJS is accused to cause memory leaks as per many developers. This is a serious concerning area.
