Angular vs React vs Vue: Which Framework is
Best to Choose in 2021?
You may be a React developer, a Vue developer or an Angular developer
specializing only in these technologies, but you cannot ignore the constant
comparison that the development community keeps making. And for good
reason. One is a UI library (React), another is a seasoned full-fledged front-
end framework (Angular) and the youngest among them (Vue) may be
termed as a progressive framework. Yet, each of these possesses some
unique benefits and performance metrics that compel people to analyze the
Each of these frameworks is component-based and facilitates the rapid
creation of UI features. They can be used interchangeably, well, almost for
building front-end applications. However, they are not 100% the same.
This is why we decided to create a short guide for you but most importantly
a structure for you to help decide on technologies in the future as well.
Let’s dig in.
As obvious as it may sound, yet, make sure to thoroughly check its license
before using an open-source framework or library. Luckily, React, Angular
and Vue all use the MIT license, which is bliss because it provides limited
restrictions on reuse, even in proprietary software. However, always go the

framework or software.
belongs to the MEAN stack which is today the hottest
technology stack for startups. Angular is a complete framework for web
application development based on TypeScript and is mainly used for
building single-page web applications (SPAs).
Unlike AngularJS - the original framework, Angular 2 doesn’t have a strict
association with MV*-patterns because it is component-based. The way
Angular is structured, there are Modules, Components and Services.
In the Angular framework, each component has a Class or a Template that
defines the application logic, and MetaData (Decorators). This metadata of
the component pro
