Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of Facebook’s wildly-popular React JavaScript library for building single-page web application. You’ve may have also heard of Vue.js, a full-featured utility that can be leveraged for the same purposes. But which one is right for your project?

In this article, we’ll explore some of the differences and similarities between the two. We’ll start with some simple comparison points, then move on to more complex topics.

It’s worth remembering as you read this article that React and Vue are both trying to solve one problem – SPA UI management – in different ways. While both utilities focus on code-reuse through the idea of components, the fundamental thinking behind React and Vue is somewhat different, and each has a unique way in which it addresses the problem of building modern single-page web applications.
