Hi,

A React vs. Angular comparison is still a popular topic in 2020.

But, What should you pick Angular or React for your app?

Angular is a full-fledged framework, while React is a library. React. js uses virtual DOM and one-way data binding while Angular operates on real DOM & two-way data binding. A large difference between React and Angular is one-way vs. two-way binding. There are some specific reasons to choose Angular.js over React.

Share your thoughts and suggestions.

Thanks.

So there are "some specific reasons" to prefer one of the libraries, but you're not going to tell us what they are? The page you linked explains nothing, it's just an ad - and there is a similar page for React. How are we supposed to make up our mind if you advertise both?

My 2ยข, having worked with both: Angular is waning in popularity, and I understand why: it's a beast to work with. React or Vue are the currently trending systems.

Whether a system is classified a "framework" or a "library" is irrelevant, in my opinion, in judging its suitability for use.

ReactJS is a completely independent, unopinionated library that can integrate into our web-based applications.

Angular, on the other hand, is a full-fledged UI framework, which defines the end-to-end flow.

Not really trying to dump on Angular here, but trends do not support that it is "one of the most popular" frameworks.

Sites with actual metrics like npm trends show it is lagging badly behind other framework/libraries (I'm not going to get pulled into the framework vs library debate) such as React.

Metrics: yearly trend shows Angular pretty flat (in fact, slightly downward, 560K to 545K, with React rising from 8.2M to almost 12M.
