“Choosing the Best is Better.”
Why should you choose Vue instead of React and Angular?
React versus VUE versus Angular
Simplicity and Ease:
JSX: const var=<H1> This is an example of JSX</H1>;
Data Binding means binding of data between two components which is somewhat concerned with the synchronization of data. In context to the MVC, this binding is done between the model and view components. There are two methods of Data Binding- One-way Data Binding and Two-way Data Binding. Angular supports Two-way Data Binding in which both parent and child(model and view in case of MVC) can update each other’s data. React supports Unidirectional Data Binding, in which data flow is only in one direction. Vue supports both of these techniques, that is, Two-way as well as One-way, which once again clearly makes it a winner.
For one-way Data Binding in Vue:
<input value=”variable” />
For two-way Data Binding in Vue:
<input v-model=”variable” />
Re-rendering means Rendering (or in simpler terms transforming the component in DOM Code which is understandable to the browser) again and again whenever any change in the state of the system is observed. In the context of React, whenever the re-render process is triggered, it covers the entire subtree, starting from the component where the change was made, in spite of that specific node where the change was performed and hence takes more time comparatively.
In Vue, the system automatically tracks that particular component where re-rendering is required rather than checking the entire subtree, which not only reduces the complexity but also requires less time. Well, Angular is nowhere in this race as it does not use render function separately rather it performs rendering and checking during data binding instead, which in turn results in “dirty checking”. Hence, once again Vue has managed to leave its mark in the race and win it.
The command for Rendering and Component Update: “shouldComponentUpdate” In React this command had to be implemented manually whereas Vue implements this automatically, making it a better choice.
Unlike Angular and React, Vue, along with some considerably highly advanced functions, also facilitates the users with few basic templates to work upon, which is an add-on to the existing features. The advantages of the presence of the templates are higher productivity, easy adaptability and easier migration of pre-existing applications.
Being second in this list, yet Vue is the best. You might be wondering how even this is possible. Well, Vue has made this happen as Vue is slightly less flexible than React but more flexible than Angular. Angular is quite inflexible as in this you are supposed to follow the protocols and work according to it.
React, on the contrary, is highly flexible because it allows the user to select their own way which is sometimes really helpful. However, few things are somewhat challenging, let’s say for routing, React internally does not provide the routers, hence for routers you need to contact a third-party. And if you are a newcomer it may be a bit mind-boggling for you. Vue is also considered flexible, but it does not leave the users open-ended for routing purpose as it provides Vue Routers for it, which makes it easier for the beginners as they need not search for the external providers immediately
If you are thinking to opt for a lightweight solution with the features of Angular and React to build your application, you can undoubtedly go for Vue as it just takes approximately 20 to 30 kb space, whereas React takes approximately 43kb and Angular takes more than 100 kb of space according to Github . Hence, Vue is the lightest among all three.
