The documentation of React pales when we compare it with that of Vue. There are basics of React development and there are additional advanced concepts but the presentation is not well structured or accessible.
Additionally, there is also no in-depth overview of the ecosystem that React has that is seen in the documentation of Vue.
Vue has amazing documentation and the API references can be regarded as the best in the world. Everything is clear, accessible, and well written. This makes dealing with anything related to Vue applications easier.
Similar to React, you will find these documentations translated in varied languages apart from English. Vue is a bit more opinionated over React and there are several problems as well as the clear solution that one can see in these docs.
2. JSX vs HTML templating:
One of the major differences that are present between these two frameworks is how the templates are handled.
JSX offers high versatility for full language programming with transitory flow controls, variables, and one can reference the JS values straightforwardly in scope. There is also support for sophisticated IDE features like linting, type checking, and auto-complete.
Vue templates on the other hand have a traditional approach. There are components for a single file and there are distinct blocks specially made for HTML templates, JS, and styles. This is a separation that can easily concern the front end developer that’s immediately familiar and it can make the framework learning easy.
Any valid HTML can be seen as a Vue template. One can also add JS functionality with custom directives and bindings. The templates will allow one to migrate gradually to the Vue projects.
This will be a framework that offers extreme customization and allows one to:
- Make use of CSS or SCSS scoping.
- Write the codes in Pug like preprocessors or,
- Dropping templates in the favor of rendering functions or JSX.
3. Final Verdict:
Both of these libraries will be a great choice for modern web applications. React has been a popular leader and has support from big corporations and has a massive community. The library helps in creating complex applications. Vue is gradually making its way ahead. Learning is easy and one has fun while working with it.
