React vs Angular: Which One is Faster?

by Tech Trendz Writer
In the development world, there are few “rivalries” that have garnered continuously much attention from all quarters. One such topic is Angular Vs. React performance - inparticular ‘which one is better’ competition is so intense among coders all over the world that the world has been witness to a large number of spirited discussions about it over pretty much every social media platform out there in the market. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that it is indeed an important question, for the choice does stand to have a considerable say in the chances of success of the development project. And since we are feeling a tad adventurous, we figured we’d try and see if we can conclusively answer which one of the two is better.

But before we can do that, let’s start with the basics. While React is a library used for the development of UIs, SPAs, and mobile apps (via React Native), Angular is a framework that developers use to create progressive web apps. At the moment, React is leading the race between the two; in fact, research shows that 78.1 percent prefer to React, while Angular enjoys a comparatively measly share of just 21 percent. Now that we are clear with what’s what, it is time to delve into the details and see how React and Native fare in the context of the most critical aspects of a development project.

1.Architecture: There is some disagreement in developer circles about precisely which models these two use. Nonetheless, it is widely accepted that Angular features the MVVM architecture, while React gets the MVC architecture. And both of them need a complementary resource to help out further down the line.

2.Speed of development:
First things first, since React utilizes Flux architecture, it is highly conducive to the unidirectional flow of data. On the other hand, Angular makes use of Redux, which is a JavaScript library to help with the creation of client-side UIs, app state management, and more. To cut a long story short, how long development takes with either one is directly dependent on developers’ skills and how well they are acquainted with different technology stacks, strategies, and solutions.

3.Performance: It is essential to learn that while React involves a virtual DOM (Document Object Model), Angular makes use of direct DOM. Here React has a clear advantage since it doesn’t require the actual DOM to render every time the developer updates something. In its case, the real DOM is performed only after all the changes to the virtual DOM receive the go-ahead. As a result, it gains an edge over Angular when it comes to app performance.

Despite our best endeavors, it seems that there is indeed no way to decide if React is better or Angular conclusively. And since it is such a subjective call, those who are looking to choose between the two, we highly recommend that you take a close look at your project’s requirements and then see which one of the two can better serve those needs.
