Well, for some reason, FCC loves React, although you can use Angular, Vue or whatever you like. My choice was to just do it with template languages, to be precise, EJS was my choice, plus Pug for one project, but I hate it.
Because it’s the new standard and Angular is losing popularity.
Learn what you think you need - you will be learning new frameworks/technologies for the rest of your life as a developer - so get used that that - you might learn Angular then React then some new framework the year after that - basically you’ll keep learning new things.
It’s not the new standard and Angular is the more popular technology. But whatever makes you happy. Also, I don’t like Angular, but there are much more jobs available for Angular than for React developers in the world.
You are free to choose whichever library you want, but it isn’t as easy to get help with Angular around here as most people opt to learn React. Either choice is great, though I find Angular is more difficult to get started with. Is there a reason you’re not considering React?
Nope. The author is a React developer and he can’t be trusted.
I could make a survey that would prove that Vue.js is the leader. It’s so easy to manipulate with people’s minds - Gebels and CNN are the evidence, just to name a few.
Year ago I witnessed a survey organized by a React developer where he asked other devs (90% of them were React devs) whether they like more React or Angular. It was hilarious.
As far as the job market is considered, I don’t need a survey - I just visited my local IT jobs site and there are currently 1500 Angular jobs and 800 React jobs.
P.S. I don’t like Angular, I’m not a fan of any particular front end framework.
