Discussion on: React vs Vue: Compare and Contrast

The biggest difference to me is the decisive opinions on state and routing that Vue made and React did not.

With Vuex and Vue router, there is an expected bundling of tools for creating a Vue app. This makes it more approachable for beginners.

React is incredibly configurable, but that can be intimidating for those that aren't comfortable architecting a full frontend application.

I'll also add that I'm a big fan of the breakdown of a Vue component. They took the angular style of 3 files and collapsed it into one. Data, display, styles.

React, again, is much more open to interpretation on best practices in component structure.
