Needs advice
on
ReactReact
and
Vue.jsVue.js

I find using Vue.js to be easier (more concise / less boilerplate) and more intuitive than writing React. However, there are a lot more readily available React components that I can just plug into my projects. I'm debating whether to use Vue.js or React for an upcoming project that I'm going to use to help teach a friend how to build an interactive frontend. Which would you recommend I use?

React

I'd have to concur that I'd advise React. In addition to the reasons mentioned, the developer pool is significantly larger (and also slightly more expensive) for React. In time, engineering costs will even out as more and more teams adopt it. The community support is fantastic, and the available components significant.

Fast forward 1 year later - we ended up switch to Vue and Nuxt for static site generation and couldn't be more pleased. Nuxt has its' quirks but all in all we're happy, The learning curve on Vue wasn't too steep considering our use case, so I'll eat my words here and say I'd recommend Vue!

I've used both Vue.js and React and I would stick with React. I know that Vue.js seems easier to write and its much faster to pick up however as you mentioned above React has way more ready made components you can just plugin, and the community for React is very big.

It might be a bit more of a steep learning curve for your friend to learn React over Vue.js but I think in the long run its the better option.

React is beautiful. I've never used Vue.js but for what I've heard it's easy and fast to learn but, once you dominate the essentials of react and how it actually works, you become a "magician". I really think React it's just beautiful 馃槏.

Hi ! What's your take on (React + Angular) vs (React + ReactNative)? Currently I am in a phase in which I am trying to decide a lifetime stack for me to sustain in the market. Needs advice/suggestion.

Thanks in Advance.

Hey Islam, I would suggest if you are going to use React you use React Native + React and not Angular... Mixing frameworks like Angular and React can become tricky. But if you are looking to become hirable I'd say React and React Native is a good choice. I'm noticing less and less companies that use Angular.
