We are happy to see you on EZtek’s Blog!

Today, we will be talking about Vue and React, they have been among JS framework leaders for several years. Why? Let’s find out!

Why are we even comparing React and VueJS?

VueJS has been rising in popularity and React developers start considering switching their projects to a faster and better performing – VueJS.

However, Vue has its cons, so let’s compare the two

Why do developers use VueJS?

  • Comfortable design
  • Single syntax, as Vue.js uses the same logic to write the entire UI functionality.
  • Efficient official plugins
  • Vue is not backed up by corporations – for some developers, this is an advantage.

Why do developers use React?

  • JSX makes work easier. It’s a syntax extension that allows writing your own components in HTML.
  • React supports mobile development. If you know React, you will easily learn React Native – a JS-based framework for mobile development.
  • Universality and flexibility.

Let’s now compare the two!

#1 Popularity

  • React is used by 1.6 million websites.
  • VueJS is used by 800 000 websites.

#2 Performance

Due to a virtual document object model React and Vue both use, we think their speed and performance don’t differ much. However, EZtek developers find Vue is faster when it comes to component creation and updates.

In React, you need to re-optimize a component in case of a change. Vue automatically tracks components.

#3 Scaling

Overall, Vue offers scaling projects and higher performance speed but ReactJS has a better ecosystem, more templates and additional tools. We usually advise choosing Vue for smaller projects where speed is a priority while React fits complex platforms better.

#4. Adapting to Mobile Devices

  • React offers React Native – a framework that allows building Android and iOS native apps with the same component structure.
  • VueJS doesn’t have a similar custom solution but it supports Weex – a mobile UI framework developed by Alibaba group.

#5 Size

The default size of React is about 100 kilobytes, VueJS is around 80 kilobytes. The heavier the JS code is the slower the end app performance will be.

#6 Community

  • React is developed and supported by Facebook, the official community is strong and active.
  • VueJS on the other hand, is a personal passion project with an active community as well.

By the way, depending on such tech giants like Facebook or Google may leave us uncertain about how our data is used. Would you choose to trust your data to big corporations?
So, actually the independence of Vue from corporations can make it safer.

When do we suggest using React for development?

  • Community-based platform
  • Social media development
  • Complex platform with rich web and mobile functionality.

When to use Vue?

  • Small web page apps designed to be fast and lightweight
  • Real-time platforms, SaaS, peer-to-peer communities
  • Content delivery platforms.

So, according to our experience the framework choice totally depends on the particular project. As for EZtek’s background, we provide software development, UI/ UX design and quality assurance services to top brands worldwide. Need expert help, contact us now!
