React vs Supersonic: What are the differences?

Developers describe React as "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. On the other hand, Supersonic is detailed as "UI Hybrid Framework – Ionic, AngularJS, Cordova". Supersonic UI is a game-changer. It's an Ionic fork that changes the way you think about hybrid app performance. Supersonic's declarative UI style makes building complex mobile apps a breeze. In the background, the seamless interplay of native UI and HTML5 bakes an end-result that is 100% indistinguishable from any native app.

React and Supersonic can be categorized as "Javascript UI Libraries" tools.

React is an open source tool with 132K GitHub stars and 24.5K GitHub forks. Here's a link to React's open source repository on GitHub.

          What are some alternatives to React and Supersonic?
          Angular 2
          It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
          Vue.js
          It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
          Ember.js
          A JavaScript framework that does all of the heavy lifting that you'd normally have to do by hand. There are tasks that are common to every web app; It does those things for you, so you can focus on building killer features and UI.
          NativeScript
          NativeScript enables developers to build native apps for iOS, Android and Windows Universal while sharing the application code across the platforms. When building the application UI, developers use our libraries, which abstract the differences between the native platforms.
          jQuery
          jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.

          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?
