re: What's the difference between a library and a framework? VIEW POST


I've often read that React isn't a framework, it's a library. While you can use React by itself, it's best suited with an array of other libraries. Then it becomes a framework.

Angular is a framework. It has a suite of applications that all have a purpose. Angular can't work alone.

I'd look at it this way:

  • a library is a single tool in a toolbox.
  • a framework is a toolbox itself.
