Vue vs Ember vs Angular

Table of Contents

The JavaScript world is filled with tools, libraries and frameworks. However, the framework you choose can be either an advantage or a significant drawback to your project. Therefore it is crucial to explore the pros and cons of each tool.

Today, we will provide you with an overview of Ember, Vue and Angular as their popularity is growing fast among developers.

VueJs

Vue was developed and first released in 2014 by Evan You and is widely used by lots of famous companies like Alibaba, BuzzFeed, Gitlab and many others.

Why is Vue good?

First of all, it is lightweight if you compare VueJs with Angular and Ember, you will see that Vue wins this round. Moreover, when switching to view after other tools, developers mention how simple it is. Everything is utterly separate: the HTML template, stylesheet and necessary methods. That’s why this framework is so easy to develop with. You get a better understanding of which piece of code you need to work on.

Another positive side of Vue is the implemented virtual Dom that allows developers to manipulate and render the view. It allows UI to offer better performance as real Dom will not get rendered each time something changes. the developer can render only the differences between real and virtual Dom’s.

The pros

  • Its ecosystem is small and fast
  • Simple code structure
  • Clear documentation Ability to develop large-scale templates
  • Simple integration with existing apps and flexibility.

For now, using this framework for smaller scale or personal projects is definitely more reliable. Certainly, Vue seems somewhat ambitious but yet quite perspective.

The cons

  • Vue wants to switch between the development of apps with MVC architecture and applications based on state containers which can be confusing for those who are looking for full scale solutions.
  • Vue is offering too much flexibility which may come as a drawback.

EmberJS

This framework has existed for years- over time. Ember.Js has shown how capable its team is in maintaining the framework and integrating up-to-date standards into it. Ember is quite popular and is used by giants like Ted, Netflix, LinkedIn, Microsoft and many others. In fact, Ember.Js has made a more significant impact on JavaScript over the past few years than other tools.

Anyway, the main advantage of this framework is placing convention over configuration. Developers don’t have to provide detailed data for the various routes in the app.

In general, Ember minimizes dom and makes it possible to work with large ecosystems. That means that they need to render only the values. We also need to note that ember boots quickly and is very stable.

The pros

  • Scalability
  • URL oriented development support
  • Well-structured and clear documentation
  • High productivity
  • Large community of programmers.

The cons

However, the main disadvantage of ember heights in its main advantage.

Meaning, in the strict and regulated structure of developed applications. The cons are:

  • Slow rendering
  • Silent errors
  • Deep linking is not reliable
  • Less flexible than Vue
  • The object model implementation makes ember very heavy which results in freezes and low performance
  • Lots of added layers.

Ember is not suitable for smaller projects since it can over complicate the app.

Angular

Now we are moving on to our last fighter. It is a type script based JavaScript framework by Google. It was released in 2010. Angular can also brag about the apps built with it. From the well-known: Paypal, Gmail, Mazii to lots of other apps and websites.

Angular offers a clearly defined framework that allows developers to work in one style and flow. So, if you are a fan of typescript, this tool would be a great choice.

The pros

  • High-performance
  • Server-side rendering
  • Native CLI
  • Ease in testing.

The cons

  • Steep learning curve, difficulty in finding relevant guides
  • Continually being changed.

Which Framework Should You Choose?

Trying to choose the framework for your project, you will be comparing them for sure.

Vue combines the most outstanding features of other libraries and frameworks while still getting constant updates. If you have an old web application that needs a more modern engine, the VueJs framework will be your best choice.

Angular doesn’t differ much from Vue. It is a bit heavier but not significantly. It offers the same high performance, yet giving developers less freedom and pretty much forcing them to do everything the angular way.

EmberJs will be the perfect choice if you are looking for a well structured and reliable framework. It will be great for projects where there is a big development team. And everyone needs to understand the written code and contribute to the project as a team.

Thus should it be Vue or Ember or even Angular? There is no right answer. After all, it is just a matter of the project you are working on and the needs you have.
