Aurelia vs Semantic UI: What are the differences?

Developers describe Aurelia as "Next gen JS framework written with ES6 and ES7. Integrates with Web Components. No external dependencies except polyfills". Aurelia is a next generation JavaScript client framework that leverages simple conventions to empower your creativity. On the other hand, Semantic UI is detailed as "A UI Component library implemented using a set of specifications designed around natural language". Semantic empowers designers and developers by creating a shared vocabulary for UI.

Aurelia and Semantic UI are primarily classified as "Javascript MVC Frameworks" and "Front-End Frameworks" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Aurelia are:

  • Two-Way Databinding
  • Routing & UI Composition
  • Extensible HTML

On the other hand, Semantic UI provides the following key features:

  • Build Responsive Layouts Easier
  • Self Explanatory
  • Tag ambivalent

"Simple with conventions" is the top reason why over 38 developers like Aurelia, while over 134 developers mention "Easy to use and looks elegant" as the leading cause for choosing Semantic UI.

Aurelia and Semantic UI are both open source tools. Semantic UI with 45.7K GitHub stars and 4.83K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Aurelia with 11K GitHub stars and 666 GitHub forks.

Snapchat, Create.It, and Reviewable are some of the popular companies that use Semantic UI, whereas Aurelia is used by NOD studios, Strengthen, and SupplyPike. Semantic UI has a broader approval, being mentioned in 77 company stacks & 50 developers stacks; compared to Aurelia, which is listed in 17 company stacks and 10 developer stacks.

      What are some alternatives to Aurelia and Semantic UI?
      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.

      ReactQL is a React + GraphQL front-end starter kit. #JSX is a natural way to think about building UI, and it renders to pure #HTML in the browser and on the server, making it trivial to build server-rendered Single Page Apps. GraphQL via Apollo was chosen for the data layer; #GraphQL makes it simple to request just the data your app needs, and #Apollo takes care of communicating with your API (written in any language; doesn't have to be JavaScript!), caching, and rendering to #React.

      ReactQL is written in TypeScript to provide full types/Intellisense, and pick up hard-to-diagnose goofs that might later show up at runtime. React makes heavy use of Webpack 4 to handle transforming your code to an optimised client-side bundle, and in throws back just enough code needed for the initial render, while seamlessly handling import statements asynchronously as needed, making the payload your user downloads ultimately much smaller than trying to do it by hand.

      React Helmet was chosen to handle <head> content, because it works universally, making it easy to throw back the correct <title> and other tags on the initial render, as well as inject new tags for subsequent client-side views.

      styled-components, Sass, Less and PostCSS were added to give developers a choice of whether to build styles purely in React / JavaScript, or whether to defer to a #css #preprocessor. This is especially useful for interop with UI frameworks like Bootstrap, Semantic UI, Foundation, etc - ReactQL lets you mix and match #css and renders to both a static .css file during bundling as well as generates per-page <style> tags when using #StyledComponents.

      React Router handles routing, because it works both on the server and in the client. ReactQL customises it further by capturing non-200 responses on the server, redirecting or throwing back custom 404 pages as needed.

      Koa is the web server that handles all incoming HTTP requests, because it's fast (TTFB < 5ms, even after fully rendering React), and its natively #async, making it easy to async/await inside routes and middleware.

      #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.

      We use Semantic UI for our frotend. A heavily customised version of it, but still Semantic UI under the hood.

      Used Semantic UI + Angular2 together with Spring or Node/Express for full stack web application development.
