If we compare Angular and React functionality both are designed to serve the same purpose, i.e. to solve the same Front-end problems.
React vs Angular
What should be a Beginner’s Choice: React or Angular?
It always is a tough decision for a front-end developer with some experience of HTML, CSS, and JS, and now thinking about what to do next to enhance the front-end skills. In 2019, there are 2 options which are heating the front-end development that is React and Angular. Though both Angular and React are designed to serve the same purpose, I would suggest choosing which is easy to learn.
If you ask us, what should you learn, we would definitely say go to React.
Frameworks vs Library
Frameworks and libraries are the same in some content. If we talk in simple word Frameworks and Libraries are the pre-defined or pre-written codes which we use to perform the task so we do not need to write the code by our self every time.
Frameworks and Libraries are designed to reduce the code length of a programme. The basic principle on which the Frameworks and Libraries works are DRY (Do not Repeat Yourself) and code reusability.
Now the question is how frameworks are different from libraries? Often people get confused Libraries with frameworks but there are many differences. We would not discuss all the difference between Frameworks and Libraries here, instead, I will tell you the main difference of their working.
The main technical difference is how Frameworks and Libraries work. When we use a library, it means that we are calling a bunch of pre-written code in our own programme, then we don’t need to write additional code every time. While a framework is also a pre-written code but we do no call a framework in our programme, rather a framework calls our programme and plugs it with something else.

React vs Angular
|DOM (Document Object Model)||Virtual DOM works way faster than the Real DOM.||Real DOM, it works similar to Virtual DOM for trivial updates, but when we are talking about thousands of updates on HTML tags it works slow.|
|Popularity||According to Google React has more search than Google. The Popularity of React is more than Angular.||Angular is new, it is popular but not as React. People like to use React more than Angular.|
|Learning Curve||Low Learning Curve very easy to learn.||High, difficult to learn as compared to React.|
|Performance||React has Virtual DOM which makes its performance very fast when it’s come to loading and Refreshing webpages.||Angular’s MVVM helps to reduce the loading speed of the web pages.|
|Testing||Facebook use jest to test the React code.||In Angular, you get Jasmine framework for the code testing.|
|Architecture||Reusable, Cohesive, and modular components.||Cohesive, reusable and modular components.|
|Documentation||React provide a well-managed Documentation yet it is undergoing regular updates.||Angular is new in the field and its update making its documentation slow.|
|Community||React has a growing community.||Angular also supports a large community.|
Both are doing Great in order to serve the best for web development. After comparing both, we have seen that React is a clear winner. Angular is new and needs many updates if it wants to overtake the React.
In my suggestion choosing React would be a great decision if you want to make a career in the front-end web development because it offering you more opportunity than the angular.
