Product development is a fun when the right technology mixed with your idea. I help many of our clients to choose the right set of technologies while developing their product that can help them to progress faster and scale very well in future as their product grows.
In order to give the best advice to my clients, I set my team to be upgraded with all the latest technologies and use our years of experience before proposing the right options.
This article is not for a typical comparison but it is for the real experience sharing of why we use Vue.js over Angular and React in our projects.
If you are looking for just comparison of Angular Vs React Vs Vue then you can check it out following articles,

Article 3: Debate VueJs Vs ReactJs
Angular was found in 2009, React was in 2013 and Vue was in 2016
Our adoption was also in the same sequence for various projects and mobile apps.
Angular Adoption Phase
When we adopt Angular, we found 2 biggest hurdles,
- TypeScript Learning Curve
As especially when you have the majority of your development team working on PHP then Angular adoption is tricky in the initial stage. Developer needs to understand the idea of code behind and code separation clearly.
If you have an existing project or competency with vanilla JS or pure JS and your development team wants to use along sideAngluar in a project then it is difficult at times. We found Angular is not so flexible due to use of TypeScirpt in its heart!
React Adoption Phase
When we adopt React,
Our team doesn’t need to learn TypeScript so that was a joy moment for the development team.
React code components can be easily reused in multiple projects. This is a big gain to reduce development time
It's easy to debug React code over Angular so it helps developers to reach to the problem site faster
- ReactJS for Web and React Native for Mobile
Our team uses the advantage of ReactJS knowledge while working on React Native for native apps. This was not the clear case with Angular.
Vue.js Adoption Phase
We adopt Vue.js before 6 months from now and we found,
- Radically Simple
You get the power of empowered HTML as well as the code separation both in a single framework. The development team started working on Vue.js just in 2 days!
Using Vue.js in an existing project or a new starting from scratch is the same. You just need to put Vue.js files and start using it the way you wish to!
It doesn’t force you to change your coding habit, unlike other framework and libraries! It is the greatest thing a developer loves!
Vue.js components are the great way to implement the reusability! Either you develop your own components or there is a long list of already developed ready to use components available.
- Combine with other JS
We use Jquery a lot in many of our projects and combining Vue.JS with Jquery brings more familiarity in the code for the development team.
