Efficient software development is just like baking. When making a cake you could raise your own chickens for eggs, churn milk from your own cows to make butter and grow your own cocoa beans for the flavouring, or you could just buy the ingredients from the shop and only worry about putting them together in the right order.
Similarly, whether it’s copy and pasting blocks of code or Googling how other developers have implemented particular elements into an application, a foundation of efficient software development is using work that someone else has already done to solve your problem.
For example, instead of creating a new user interface from scratch, it would be much quicker and simpler grab a template from a library, and then just personalise it as necessary.
Vue vs React vs Angular: what’s the difference?
Due to the increased size of development teams and user-base, React and Angular provide far wider community support than Vue.
However, because Angular and React are backed by big players in technology like Facebook and Google, the scope for growth is far wider. Angular and React can release major updates and new versions every few months, but Vue, tiny by comparison, is more restricted in its upcoming releases.
Angular is deemed better for building larger applications with lots of features, React suits modern web and mobile applications, and Vue is suitable for single-page applications and more basic web development.
