Vue.js vs React.js: Clash of the UI Component Libraries

Virtual DOM, server-side rendering (SSR), universal JavaScript, and components-based web development — these are the features that define the current meta of front-end JavaScript. In one corner we have React, the Facebook-backed UI component library that first demonstrated the power of components-oriented web development back in 2013. In the other corner we have Vue, the new kid on the block that’s been winning developers over with its lower learning curve and support for simple HTML templates.
