I believe it is crucial that for whatever JavaScript framework you want to use, you get a good grasp of JavaScript first. (This includes ES6+, which I consider part of JavaScript).

You can do all the things with Vue that you can also do with React. The biggest difference is the way you code and the way it works internally. Both Vue and React can be used for large-scale apps.

I would even make the point that Vue is more versatile because it can easily be included in legacy code while React doesn't give that option.

In the end, it all depends on personal preference. Whether you like React, Vue, Angular, Ember, Svelte, etc... The most important part is that you feel comfortable with the framework or library you choose.

My personal preference is Vue, because I find it way more elegant than React.
