React.js Boilerplate vs Vue.js: What are the differences?

Developers describe React.js Boilerplate as "🔥 Quick setup for performance orientated, offline-first React.js apps". Quick setup for new performance orientated, offline–first React.js applications featuring Redux, hot–reloading, PostCSS, react-router, ServiceWorker, AppCache, FontFaceObserver and Mocha. On the other hand, Vue.js is detailed as "Reactive Components for Modern Web Interfaces". Vue.js is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.

React.js Boilerplate and Vue.js can be primarily classified as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

Some of the features offered by React.js Boilerplate are:

  • Using react-transform-hmr, your changes in the CSS and JS get reflected in the app instantly without refreshing the page. That means that the current application state persists even when you change something in the underlying code! For a very good explanation and demo, watch Dan Abramov himself talking about it at react-europe.
  • Redux is a much better implementation of a flux–like, unidirectional data flow. Redux makes actions composable, reduces the boilerplate code and makes hot–reloading possible in the first place. For a good overview of redux, check out the talk linked above or the official documentation!
  • Babel is a modular JavaScript transpiler that helps to use next generation JavaScript and more, like transformation for JSX, hot loading, error catching etc. Babel has a solid ecosystem of offical preset and plugins.

On the other hand, Vue.js provides the following key features:

  • Reactivity
  • Components
  • Modularity

React.js Boilerplate and Vue.js are both open source tools. Vue.js with 143K GitHub stars and 20.7K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than React.js Boilerplate with 22.9K GitHub stars and 4.59K GitHub forks.

    jQuery
    jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
    jQuery UI
    Whether you're building highly interactive web applications or you just need to add a date picker to a form control, jQuery UI is the perfect choice.

    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’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.

    We think VueJS is great. It's the main tool used to generate the client-side UI of our updated admin system, as well as being used in other smaller projects. The possibilities that VueJS brings to the table, means that we can quickly create rich and app-like interfaces and experiences.

    Vue.js is used in Kuro (https://github.com/Marc3842h/kuro).

    Kuro is the browser facing portion of shiro. Vue.js is used for rendering the interface of https://shiro.host as the frontend is client side rendered.

    Vue.js is my front-end framework of choice. It's light, fast, and extensible. Its simplicity and reactivity system make it an absolute pleasure to use and it has a wonderful, ever-growing community.

    New and very popular. Less legacy to deal with compared to React. Great documentation. Easy to get started.
