These days, you’re either on Vue.js’ side or you’re a React fan. And, as it turns out, the former has a lot of fans, at least according to our latest poll. This doesn’t mean Vue.js has won the war, though. On the contrary, it has just begun.

First things first: Vue.js is a framework and React is a library so why are we comparing apples with oranges? It’s a tale as old as time, but with different actors. Now that the“battle” between Angular and React is simmering down, let’s focus our attention on the new dynamic duo: Vue.js and React.

According to a fun GitHub repo, Vue.js has more stars than React. Check it out hereHowever, just because Vue.js has more stars, this doesn’t mean it has won the war. We wanted to see which one you like better and, as the results of our poll show, almost 60 percent of respondents prefer Vue.js, 29 percent are React fans and 13 percent would rather use something else.

Vue.js vs React: Who’s one step ahead? [POLL RESULTS]

One cannot ignore the fact that Vue.js is the rising star of JavaScript. According to the results of last year’s State of JavaScript survey, the popularity of Vue.js continues to rise. In 2017, it managed to outshine Angular 2 (not Angular 1 though!) and, according to the chart below, 12.000 respondents were willing to give it a try so this year it might actually be the runner-up or, who knows, even become No.1.
