      Angular 2
      Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
      React
      Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
      AngularJS
      AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML鈥檚 syntax to express your application鈥檚 components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
      Vue.js
      It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
      Backbone.js
      Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.

      #Hiring

      At Beamery we had a large, AngularJS app, built over several years. Our clients were happy, but we were not. We had several problems: Building new features was slow. AngularJS doesn鈥檛 scale nicely. Features clash with each other. Isolation doesn鈥檛 come as standard, you have to work hard to keep features separate. It takes time to get it right. #Hiring was hard, for all the reasons listed above. The app was slower than it needed to be because AngularJS was never built for speed. We wanted to render half a million contacts, and Angular was fighting us all the way.

      As time went by it become harder to find developers who would willingly choose AngularJS over React Angular 2 , Vue.js , Aurelia or Polymer .

      So we faced a choice. We could throw it all away and start again, we could upgrade to Angular 5, or the awesome option - we could use micro frontends. We chose the awesome option.
