jQuery vs React: What are the differences?
"Cross-browser", "Dom manipulation" and "Power" are the key factors why developers consider jQuery; whereas "Components", "Virtual dom" and "Performance" are the primary reasons why React is favored.
jQuery and React are both open source tools. It seems that React with 132K GitHub stars and 24.5K forks on GitHub has more adoption than jQuery with 51.9K GitHub stars and 18.3K GitHub forks.
According to the StackShare community, jQuery has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4049 company stacks & 2607 developers stacks; compared to React, which is listed in 3223 company stacks and 3085 developer stacks.
We choose React for our client-side implementation because of React's virtual DOM implementation and component rendering optimization. It can help our app to be more stable and easier to debug. Also, react has strong support from the dev community. There is an enormous amount of reacting libraries we could use, which will speed up our development process.
As a backend dev, it was quite easy to go with vue over react. Important note that Im now talking about Vue2 maybe the are crucial changes in third version, but the second one is super easy to get into without spending too much time learning concepts. And vue-cli is just a breeze to start a project with.
