React JS, Node JS and Angular JS: Which one is the best for web development?

To choose a right JavaScript framework for creating an amazing web application is the crucial decision for every business owner. Therefore, to choose one among these three – “React JS, Node JS and Angular JS” becomes the complicated decision because ultimately it will help your businesses to get the effective online presence of the particular brand.

In this article, we are going to compare all of these three most demanding JavaScript frameworks and we will also look at the advantages and disadvantages of each framework which can help you to choose best among them.

Angular JS:

During 2009, Google has launched open source framework called as Angular JS. It was developed with the aim of resolving an issue in single page application. Due to features like flexibility, Easy Testing and amazing user Interface Angular JS is popular.

Advantages:

  • Data synchronization can be possible easily between model, view, and controller.
  • It can easily create document object model without adding inner HTML code.
  • It gives vigorous template binding solution.
  • It has outstanding binary libraries.
  • It can be tested easily.
  • Coding becomes easy with simple routing and amazing UI design.

Disadvantage:

  • Sometimes it becomes hard to debug the scopes.
  • Third party integration becomes difficult.
  • With pages embedding interactive elements, it becomes slow.
  • Angular is big and little bit complex framework.

React JS:

It is considered as an open source JavaScript library rather than a framework. It is created with the aim of resolving the issues with the JavaScript frameworks related to efficient extemporization of large databases.  It has amazing features like SEO effectiveness, great efficiency and much more.

Advantages:

  • It has easy learning API which makes it easy to understand
  • Coding becomes easy because React JS allows reusing the coding.
  • It is high-performance open source library compares to other frameworks.
  • It is fully component-based architecture and you can easily import components in React JS.
  • With server-side rendering, you can create isomorphic/universal web applications.

Disadvantages:

  • JavaScript Extensions are sometimes not acceptable to web developers.
  • It has complicated view layer.
  • As we have discussed earlier, it is not a framework but just a library.

Node JS:

Node JS is not only the framework but it can be considered as a server. During the creation of complex application Node Js is preferable to use. Due to these top three reasons, you should select Node JS- Server-side proxy, node package manager, and data streaming.

Advantages:

  • You can use the same coding for both client and server-side coding.
  • Stream files can be stream easily and Node JS is easy to learn.
  • Due to asynchronous event-driven input-output, it can handle concurrent request.

Disadvantages:

  • You should have deep knowledge of JavaScript if you want to work with Node JS.
  • To take an advantage of multiple tasks, one CPU is not enough.
  • It is not intended for CPU task but only for web servers.

Here, we have discussed regarding main features and pros and cons of a particular framework. Now, let’s have a look at our opinion which can help you to take a decision to choose one among all three.

React JS-Node JS-Angular JS

 

Angular JS is fully featured framework compared to React JS but React JS is far better than Angular JS when it comes to performance because of implementation of virtual DOM. On the other side Node Js is used to create fast and scalable network applications.

Hope this article will help you to choose the best JavaScript framework and if you are thinking to outsource your project on particular framework then Concetto Labs is the best web and application development company to work with.

Node.js vs io.js: Who mimes better?

Node.js vs io.js | Although there is no clear winner amongst the two, each of them stands out in their own way to impress their prospects. So let’s study them in detail on a comparative note, so as to give you a clear picture of which one suit you best.

Node.js has been forked! The big tech world news!

But was it really that big, when Node has already been forked in the past?  Remember JXcore. And this time four of the top contributors of Node.js are part of this forked activity. The main reason behind this forked project io.js was the fact that the number of commits on node.js over past few years had measured a declining trend.

And also one of the other prime reasons was the dissatisfaction in the way the project was being handled by Joyent. Efforts were made by some of the core contributors to provide a proper structure to Node and solve the problems related to it, to some extent, but in vain. In the name of ‘Node Forward’ independent efforts were made to improve the Node ecosystem, but that too was a failure.

So finally Fedor Indutny, one of the prime team members, came up with the fork named as io.js. There were others who followed the league.

Here is all you need to know about io.js:

  • It is forked out of Joyent’s Node.js v0.12
  • Thoroughly compatible with the npm ecosystem
  • Version based on semver, starting with v1.0.0
  • Weekly production releases are planned
  • Bug fixes cherry-picked from Node into io.js as necessary
  • Open Governance Model: Thus more power to contributors
  • Up for new V8 releases at the earliest
  • js is on V8 v4.1.0.14, while Node is still on V8 v3.28.73
  • Newer V8 brings in many performance improvements and fixes
  • Also, brings in additional support for new ES6 language features
  • New (experimental) core modules
  • V8: interfacing directly with V8 engine
  • smalloc: managing external raw memory allocation/deallocation in JavaScript

Io.js has strongly proved that the enhanced growth of the project is all because of open governance.

But in spite of this proof by io.js, there are two sides of each and every statement of the forked story.

1st side:

  • Open governance means distributed control
  • Immediate releases
  • Newer version V8
  • Benefits of ES6

2nd side:

  • Why make a switch when Node is fairly stable and production ready.
  • The technical face of newer V8, ES6 support, etc is not enticing enough
  • There are not uncontrollable complaints from corporate regarding the slow release from Node

So whether io.js is an acceptable match or not, solely depends on its prospective consumer.

Amalgamation of Node.js vs io.js

Since Node.js vs io.js was never ever intended to compete with Node, the chances of them getting hitched were always pretty big. And finally, this good big thing did happen. The entire amalgamation story between the two can be concluded in one single liner fact as: io.js code rep will serve as the base whereas the name of Node.js will be used. This union between the two relieved several developers from the stress of choosing the one amongst the two sides of the same coin.
