I've no experience with Ruby, but between React and Angular, I think your best bet would be to use React. Angular would probably be overkill for something like a simple portfolio showcasing projects and information about yourself.

The benefit to React is that you aren't influenced to use any specific technologies like you would be with a JS framework like Angular. You have the freedom to use whatever libraries you want, but then you need to learn what those are.

Having said that, writing a basic React app like this would be fairly straight forward. I don't know that you'd need to even worry about learning Redux because state management wouldn't be an issue if your portfolio is meant to be static.
