React vs. Angular Compared: Which One Suits Your Project Better?

In the programming world, Angular and React are among the most popular JavaScript frameworks for front-end developers. Moreover, these two – together with Node.js – made it to the top three frameworks used by all software engineers on all programming languages, according to Stack Overflow Developer Survey 2018.
Both of these front-end frameworks are close to equal in popularity, have similar architectures, and are based on JavaScript. So what’s the difference? In this article, we’ll compare React and Angular. Let us start by looking at the frameworks’ general characteristics in the next paragraph. And if you are looking for other React and Angular comparisons, you can review our articles on cross-platform mobile frameworks (including React Native), or comparison of Angular with other front-end frameworks.

Will React.js Continue to Dominate in 2019?

As per a survey conducted by The State of Javascript for 2018, React surpassed Angular and others in becoming the most loved UI framework. The popularity of React has left many of us wondering whether it will be the most dominant framework of 2019. The framework, developed and maintained by Facebook, is widely used by PayTM, Fiverr, Instagram, IMDB, and many other popular organizations. Let’s discuss the benefits of React and the reasons why it has become so popular.
So, What Is React.js?
The social media giant, Facebook, introduced React.js to the world in 2013. It is an open-source JavaScript framework, the purpose of which is to create engaging and rich web applications that can run efficiently with minimal coding. Earlier, Angular was considered to be the most preferred option for developing single page web applications, but with the introduction of React, which focuses on the features of individual components, developers found their newly developed web pages rendered faster. Along with the flexibility to cover a larger number of use test cases, React has a vast tutorial base and a large community of developers who can provide solutions to problems faced by new, as well as experienced, developers.

Building a Website With Gatsby and a Headless CMS

If you’re looking to launch a small, static, and speedy website, micro-site, or landing page, you may be considering a static-site generator like Gatsby.
This article will walk you through the process of using Gatsby alongside dotCMS, a Java-based open-source headless CMS, to build a static website that uses API calls to pull content that’s created, stored, and managed in dotCMS, and presented by Gatsby.

React.js and Front-End Development

With more than 1,300 developers and over 94,000 sites utilizing React.js, it wouldn’t be an overstatement to call React the future of front-end development. After all, Fortune 500 companies like Facebook, PayPal, Uber, Instagram, and Airbnb utilize this JavaScript-based UI library for a major part of their applications’ front-end development for web as well as mobile.
Before React Arrived
When React came around, Angular was the only major contender in the JS framework space. While Angular was a very complete framework (it still is), it was a nightmare for developers. They had to do a lot of coding, and with a steep learning curve even for seasoned JavaScript developers, AngularJS was never the most desirable way to build JS applications. It has more functionalities than most developers need.

Cross-Browser Compatibility and React.js Web Apps

Sometimes I feel that events in life happen in a sequence so that you regularly come across ‘cringe’ moments. Like when you have sand in your mouth or you hear the excruciating sound of nails against a chalk board. For me, personally, the worst cringe-worthy moment is when I come across a really bad web app or website. When I say bad, I mean Internet Explorer bad (just kidding, it’s a nice browser). Directionless navigation, features that are not working, bad design, and painful UX. But, the biggest problem is missing cross-browser compatibility.
Why React?
React is simply a UI and functionality library for JavaScript-based apps. We recently talked about React.js in our last post, Choosing the Right JavaScript Framework in 2018. So, in this post, we would look in more detail at how React.js helps in the development of cross-browser compatible web apps.

The Best JavaScript Testing Tools for Your React Project

Trust, but verify. A Russian phrase made popular by president Reagan fits perfectly when we are talking about testing or QA. Everyone trusts themselves, every programmer or a developer has trust in code. And why shouldn’t they?

The Functional Side of React

As you know, React is one of the most popular JavaScript libraries to create web-based user interfaces. Its success is due to several factors, but maybe one of them is its clean and effective approach to programming.
In the React environment, every piece of a UI is a component. Components can be composed together to create other components. The application itself is a component: a composition of components. The developer approaching React is naturally led to think of it in terms of Object-Oriented Programming. The syntax itself to define a component promotes this idea:
