Angular or react

Hello.
I will be starting a new PWA project.
Is it better to do with angular or react?
thank you in advance for your opinions

I don’t know if there is a better solution. I have way more experience with angular and absolutly love it, while i’m not so familiar with react and not really “like” it. But this is 100% my personal opinion and other people will give other answers.

So i would prefer to maybe go through the “Getting started” Stuff of both Frameworks and look what you understand more and which is the right for you :blush:

Choose Angular if you want more stable and sustainable framework for fast production.
In other hand, pick react, if you would like to experiment and make high quality rendered interesting project.

I agree with everything @EinfachHans said, and I’ll also add that the #1 thing I despise about React is the way that HTML is mashed up into controller code. In large projects, you often have team members that are familiar with HTML/CSS, and others with JavaScript/TypeScript strength. Even when the same person is wearing both hats, I find it a jarring experience to try to read both at the same time. When I am thinking in template mode, I don’t want to see functional syntax. When I am thinking functionally, I don’t want markup cluttering my view.

what do you know Angular or React? I don’t really understand why you would ask the question in this forum? If I understand the object of Ionic components, it is that it shouldn’t matter if you want to use angular or react… what you are getting are individual opinions without any real context of your experience, your project, your timeline and the list goes on… of unknown facts that can help us give you an answers based on facts and not just opinions.

thank you for your feedback.

i started training with angular and wondering if i should continue angular or think about switching to react.
I ask the question to have the opinions on the 2. I find angular more readable with the separate files as the @rapropos says.
react seems lighter to me as there are fewer files.
it may be a misconception

React has it’s own advantages and more popular generally. You can find tons of comparison at Google.

BUT if you talk about -using it with- Ionic i absolutely advice Angular. React is pretty new with Ionic but Angular is old and it’s like default. You can reach more resources and help about Ionic with Angular.

Hi @Ludolefrenchy
Yes I had same question before. But I started with React because react is more light and can faster and flexible renderable library. When I was starting my first PWA project I just though Ionic is perfect and I can built the project easily with react because I have strong react and typescript skill. But many of the Ionic standard component has the problem. I was spend much time to solve that problem with Ionic not react…
According to my experience, the standard React component which provide from ionic is a new so has a lot of issues. But Ionic started with Angular from version 1, so a lot of the Ionic-Angular issues solution resource and you can find them easily. I want you follow my fault.

Stay a blast

I’m currently under heavy development with React/Ionic. My conclusion is that except Ionic components, everything else is pretty much React. Except off course capacitor/cordova functions for access to native functions like camera, or nfc. Sure that Angular is better supported, but I developed fully mobile app with React/Ionic without bigger problems.
Think that you should use technology with wich you’re better.
