4 Min. read

Angular is a framework by Google and React is the framework by Facebook but yes both the technologies are competing in the current times for high end web application development. Both are JavaScript frameworks where AngularJS is well known for building single page applications on the web. On the other hand, ReactJS come with “view” component in MVC architecture making it a very modern framework.
