Please don't call modern Angular (2+) AngularJS. That's the name for Angular 1.x.

Also, Angular does not re-render the entire page as you described; there is advanced, configurable change detection strategies that are used to only render what is necessary.

You also might want to touch on opinionative vs non-opinionative, who develops and supports it (Google/Facebook), how often new versions are being released, which is more popular, what big companies are using, and which has a better support community.

Hmmmm, It is a general talk and if you have the enough knowledge then you also know that the early version of Angular has been dissipated so when a person will start learning he will star learning from the Angular version 11, which is the latest. AngularJS was a default terminology, if you know what a default terminology means.

From the official Angular site:

angular.io/guide/ajs-quick-reference

"Angular is the name for the Angular of today and tomorrow. AngularJS is the name for all v1.x versions of Angular."

That line was totally unnecessary but thanks for the article

I just stop reading when you call it AngularJs, It means you dont have enough knowledge about angular to compare it to another framework.

Please, stop using the name AngularJS to not confuse people who are new in the Angular world. AngularJS is old and almost dead.

Do not learn angularjs. Learn angular. There's a difference. A large one. Look it up.
And to the author - poor reasearch and advice.

I have managed React teams for the last three years but given the choice it is Angular all the way. React is move fast break things and Angular projects are more long view. If you like safe long terms and stable corporate (boring to some) employment, choose Angular. If you want to interview for new gigs every six months from burn out or short contract gigs, go React.
No matter what you choose, remember that you are the apex predator of front end, don't take cheap gigs, know your value

Excellent way of Explaining a very good point and which is if you are looking for a stable job or work then Angular otherwise React is the best for Job change and other working.

I'm so sick of those articles, always the same stuff, React vs Angular, Angular vs Vue, React vs Vue, Something vs Something... Sorry man but déjà vu, a million times.
How can you state that React is not adequate for large projects? Do you realize how many huge websites are made using React? Like, websites you use every day?
Those articles are confusing to new developers.

It is very important to know that the Frameworks by 2021 are dead, the most important to know here is to keep in mind the perfect user experience and what user want, it is not a random article to choose which framework to work with rather than what to learn, reread the title if you have any other confusion.

"Frameworks by 2021 are dead", but here you go writing an article about choosing one? I guess I'm not the only one confused.

It is related to learning, once you learn a single framework, then you can learn others in a easy way.

Frameworks come and go.. They are just tools you use to get things done easily, efficiently (and goes on...). If you have good foundation of programming basics and concepts and if you have mastered a language then learning the framework is just a matter of going through the docs. My advice to beginners, stop worrying about frameworks, libs, first learn the concepts, basics and the language (Even the language is a tool.. you can learn one if you have mastered programing concepts first.) you want to use, based on the application you want to use it on. Please excuse my bad English :)

Exactly, you have explained a very important point which is getting to know the basic and then you will be able to understand each and every framework. Once you will get to know the basics then it everything will become easy to understand and work as well. And do not worry I have same level of grammar as yours.
