It is pretty clear to me at this point – that every single one of the frameworks brings different reasons to choose it and has its own Pros and Cons.

TOP 3 reasons to choose AngularJS are:

  • User Interface
  • Flexibility
  • Testing.

PROS

  • Amazing UI Design
  • Simple Routing
  • Great Libraries.

CONS

  • Limited Routing
  • 3rd party integration is complex
  • Scopes are hard to debug.

TOP 3 reasons to choose ReactJS are:

  • SEO Effective
  • Ability to create own components [don’t rely only on PolymerJS & Shadow DOM]
  • Great Efficiency [due to own virtual DOM].

PROS

  • Smooth interface & easy2learn API
  • Easier importing and JS debugging
  • Higher performance compared to other JS frameworks.

CONS

  • Very sophisticated view layer
  • It’s a library only not a framework
  • Will require additional configuration if you integrate into an MVC framework.

TOP 3 reasons to choose Node.js are:

  • Server-side proxy
  • NPM
  • Data Streaming.

PROS

  • Shares same piece of code with both client and server-side
  • Easily stream big files
  • Easy2learn & have a vibrant and large community.

CONS

  • Relational database issues
  • Requires deep understanding of JS to work with it
  • It’s not scalable because one CPU is not enough to take advantage of multiple tasks.

Every business obviously has its own needs and every Developer has own preferences in terms of which framework they prefer the work with and clearly after this short research these are the heavyweight leaders.

Is there a potential rival (vue.js)? Yes, maybe, but that’s for another research and I am very keen and opened to hear your thoughts and suggestions.

 

Whats your favourite? Let me know in the comments.

Angular 8 is finally here! Although the Angular had originally planned to release Angular 8 in March or April, it didn’t happen until late May.

With the new release now available, it’s important to understand what has changed so you’ll know how to approach Angular 8. Since Angular 7 is going to be supported until April of 2020, you may decide that it’s not worth upgrading if Angular 7 already meets all of your needs.

One of the most important changes is what the Angular team describes as ‘Differential Loading of Modern JavaScript.’ To put it simply, this means that new apps generated by Angular CLI will now contain separate bundles for legacy JavaScript (ES5) and modern JavaScript (ES2015+). This is great news because it means that modern browsers with ES2015 support will be able to download smaller, more efficient app bundles that load and render faster than before.

The Angular team is also adding a backward compatibility mode to the Angular router which will make it easier to upgrade legacy Angular apps to modern Angular. In an ideal world, we would have all been able to upgrade our Angular 1.x apps to Angular 2+ right away.

In the real world though, this doesn’t always happen. To this day, there are a large number of massive legacy Angular apps happily chugging away, serving businesses and making users happy. They haven’t been upgraded for a simple reason: they’re working well, and there wouldn’t be much ROI in doing a complete rewrite.

The end is in sight for Angular 1.x. It isn’t going to see any new development and will only be receiving security patches until the end of its long-term support period on June 30, 2021. For teams working on large Angular 1.x apps, the time to begin the transition is now (and the changes to the Angular router will help make the transition smoother). The router updates will make it possible to lazy load parts of Angular 1.x apps inside a modern Angular app using route APIs.
