Pros of React
- React helps developers reuse UI components or import them with no hassles of coding from scratch.
- The React library syncs with routing, state management, or API integration.
- React offers unidirectional data binding, which enables one-way dataflow to help developers.
React is the core component used to design Netflix, Asana, Airbnb, UberEats, etc. ReactJS was used by Facebook for its use case but in the later years, it was open-sourced for everyone to use it for different project areas. You can use ReactJS to build single-page apps, data visualization tools or dashboards because of its:
- Component reusability
- Virtual DOM
Pros of Vue
- It uses Virtual DOM for state updates and changes.
- It offers both two-way and one-way data binding.
- Vue.js has a vivid ecosystem, and you can build a mobile application using NativeScript, Ionic, and Quasar frameworks.
- It has multiple features with animations and CSS transitions.
Companies like Louis Vuitton, 9gag, Alibaba, and Xiaomi use Vue.js for their front-end development.
For example, Louis Vuitton and Alibaba are eCommerce platforms that deal with a great amount of sophisticated data. They require their interface to be efficient and process the complex data fast for display. That’s where Vue.js enables you to build those frameworks.
Next is a server-side framework based on React. The end-to-end rendering framework enables hot code reloading, automatic code-splitting, automatic routing, and built-in SEO handling.
Pros of Next
- Traditional, client-side rendered (CSR) apps offer poor SEO performance. It’s harder for search engines to index the pages of CSR sites, but Next.js delivers excellent SEO performance.
- You can build both enterprise applications and small static websites. You can even build desktop apps, mobiles apps, along with websites using Next.js.
Websites like Github, Starbucks, Tencent, Uber, and Twitch are built on Next.js. The best use case of Next.js can be for building websites with:
- Large multi-user base
- Client-side rendering applications
- E-Commerce websites
- Web portals
For example with GitHub, Next.js enabled them to build static pages that can still behave like dynamic ones. Due to the consistent content update required, Next.js became the best web technology they could use for building their platform.
Nuxt is a progressive open-source framework based on Vue and is used to build apps for server-side rendering.
Pros of Nuxt
- It offers quick and easy project setup and development.
- With Nuxt, you can create universal apps.
- It offers a robust structuring experience for better performance.
Fox News, MyScript, Upwork, Backmarket, Line, GitHub Stars, and Note.com, among others, are some of the popular websites based on Nuxt. It is the epitome of building universal apps.
For example, Line uses Nuxt for its:
- Structured architecture
- Also, it enables Line developers to have convention over configuration
- Nuxt has packaged modules and plugins with a versatile build option to make things optimized and simple
Angular was developed by Google and is a TypeScript-based web application framework. The open-source framework offers developers asynchronous compilations, dependency injection, RxJS, and other core features.

- It has a solid developer community for support.
- It offers dependency and directive injection.
A lot of Google’s services used Angular for the deployment part. Websites like LEGO, Forbes, and BMW are designed using Angular.

- Video streaming apps (YouTube)
- E-Commerce apps (T-mobile)
- Real-time data application (weather.com)
- User generated content portals (UpWork)
- The latest news and content portals (The Guardian)
Flutter is Google’s modern kit to build Android, Google Fuchsia, and iOS apps. It is an open-source platform and can build full-featured smart mobile apps with geolocation, storage, network, and camera support.
Pros of Flutter
- It offers a hot reload that enables developers to view changes directly in the application.
- It offers excellent cross-platform development that saves time and energy.
- It requires less code to develop an application because of its programming language, Dart.
Google Ads, Alibaba, Reflectly, and Hamilton Musical preferred Flutter for their mobile app development. Flutter has a wide range of use cases like:
- Social networking apps (KlasterMe)
- Photo and video apps (PostMuse)
- Shopping apps (Alibaba)
- Health and fitness apps (Reflectly)
- Music apps (Topline)
- Entertainment (Hamilton)
