I love Vue, it has a special place in my heart since I was weaned on KnockoutJS and MVVM. Data bind syntax in dom nodes make a lot of sense to me.

I've done more professional react dev over the past 3 yrs, but I can say they both offer very similar or identical features.

React is very FB, and Vue is very OSS, but it's worth pointing out that both ecosystems have a healthy amount of corporate sponsorship and OSS activity.

Vue pushes the single file component paradigm a lot, but you dont have to do it. React pushes the hook based state management, but you don't have to do it.

In conclusion, they are identical twin brothers who grew up in different countries. Who you will want to date or marry largely depends on your first date experience.
