MetricsGraphics.js vs React: What are the differences?

MetricsGraphics.js: D3-based library optimized for visualizing time-series data. MetricsGraphics.js is a library built on top of D3 that is optimized for visualizing and laying out time-series data. It provides a simple way to produce common types of graphics in a principled, consistent and responsive way. The library currently supports line charts, scatterplots and histograms as well as features like rug plots and basic linear regression; React: A JavaScript library for building user interfaces. 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.

MetricsGraphics.js can be classified as a tool in the "Charting Libraries" category, while React is grouped under "Javascript UI Libraries".

MetricsGraphics.js and React are both open source tools. React with 132K GitHub stars and 24.5K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than MetricsGraphics.js with 7.11K GitHub stars and 497 GitHub forks.

    Recently I have been working on an open source stack to help people consolidate their personal health data in a single database so that AI and analytics apps can be run against it to find personalized treatments. We chose to go with a #containerized approach leveraging Docker #containers with a local development environment setup with Docker Compose and nginx for container routing. For the production environment we chose to pull code from GitHub and build/push images using Jenkins and using Kubernetes to deploy to Amazon EC2.

    We also implemented a dashboard app to handle user authentication/authorization, as well as a custom SSO server that runs on Heroku which allows experts to easily visit more than one instance without having to login repeatedly. The #Backend was implemented using my favorite #Stack which consists of FeathersJS on top of Node.js and ExpressJS with PostgreSQL as the main database. The #Frontend was implemented using React, Redux.js, Semantic UI React and the FeathersJS client. Though testing was light on this project, we chose to use AVA as well as ESLint to keep the codebase clean and consistent.

    I found Heroku to be a great option to get ExpressJS up and running with very little hustle. The free tier is great, but I'd recommend to set up a cronjob to visit your site every few minutes so that the server stays awake. Netlify was the option to host the front-end because doing the server side rendering on #Heroku would have taken a little more time than I'd like to. For the moment pre-rendering the app with prerender-spa-plugin is enough to help with #seo. Puppeteer was my choice over other options because it made it easier to scrape websites made on ASP.NET which is what I needed in this case. And Vue.js is my top choice at the moment because it's really beginner friendly and it has a lot of the features I like about Angular 2 and React. vuex is a must in most of the app I build.

    For those who want to develop business in China, Vue.js would be your first choice. I never thought Vue.js is better than Angular 2 or React , but for project language choosing, sometimes you should not only consider technology advance, but also must consider human resource market.

    In China, there are far more engineers familiar with Vue.js than React and Angular, that means you can easily hire some front end engineers with much cheaper price. The reason why Vue.js is so popular in China is just because the community, as Vue.js author You Yuxi is Chinese, the community around Vue.js is mainly in Chinese language and most engineers speaks Mandarin, thus they can get questions and problems solved at first time.

    From technical side, Vue.js is more like a simplified Angular, syntax are mostly same, ng-if became v-if, ng-for became v-for. The most convenience part is Vue.js put html+js+css in one single vue file so that you will not have to create a separate folder to include 3 files as Angular does.

    To be frankly, I love Vue.js especially when I need to quickly create a small project contains only 1 or 2 pages even 5 pages, Vue.js would be the best choice, it's small and fast. For a really big and huge project, I will consider Angular, after all, there are far more complicated and interesting plugins to play with, Angular need more time, more code, more complex, but we senior engineer is living for some sophisticated code which only we can understand and set barriers for other beginners, right?

    #Frontend

    For developing our #frontend applications, we decided to use Vue.js . Being such an easy to learn library, compared to React for example, it made everything so easy. At first we started with Polymer but the existing tooling and small community at the time made us look for alternatives.

    I use React because I think it is the one that embraces the most the functional component design.

    New versions of React are on the right track.

    Having to work with Vue or Angular is a lot of pain for me, especially because I'm used to the simplicity of React (which comes with the great price of a high learning curve). Also, the use of the Flux Pattern is so much easier with React, being designed as a one way data flow, than with its two foremost competitors.

    Cheers to the React Team, and thank you very much !

    I recommend using Angular 2 when moving from Angular 1 if you are looking for a fully featured framework solution. Neither Vue.js nor React just work out of the box and require creating your own components from scratch as well as the kind of support architecture available in Angular 2 out of the box. However if you are looking for something lightweight to add reusable components to an existing application Vue.js
