Frontend development is a quintessential part of the web development process that becomes even more important in terms of delivering user experiences. Frontend of a website or web application directly impacts its user experience and can be a major factor contributing to user engagement. It is, therefore, essential to choose the right framework for frontend development.

ReactJS For Frontend Development
ReactJS is an open-source library of programming functions developed by Facebook for building lightweight frontend interfaces of web applications. It is mainly used for developing single-page applications. Below are the key features of ReactJS that aid frontend web development.
Easy To Learn and Use
The availability of virtual DOM (Document Object Model) in ReactJS facilitates high-speed development of scalable web applications. ReactJS developers can create a virtual representation of the webpage using its memory reconciliation algorithm to test the viability beforehand. It enables developers to pin down the potential challenges and work proactively to develop an effective webpage faster and more efficiently.
Vue.JS For Frontend Development
Vue.JS is an extremely lightweight framework that packs powerful features in a small file that normally takes less than 50KB storage space. Be that as it may, it offers high-speed development despite the small size and is sometimes more effective than React and Angular.
Intuitive Development Interface
Vue.js provides an intuitive development interface that is easy to use and offers high-speed development. The availability of large-scale templates significantly improves development efficiency and frequency, making it an ideal pick for frontend web development. Above all, it has a simple structure with less scope of errors and minimal complications.
Better Documentation Support
Vue.js offers active integration support as it enables developers to seamlessly integrate with other existing applications. It provides a custom component logic and enables developers to compile multiple features in a single file.
Supports Two-way Communications
Vue.js comprises a MVVM architecture that facilitates two-way communications to effectively handle HTML blocks. In addition, it provides a swift one-way flow that enables developers to handle different components with ease.

As it turns out, both React and Vue.js frameworks are equally good and it would be unfair to say that one is better than the other. Both these frameworks provide a seamless development interface to help you build high-quality web applications with minimal hassle. However, if we closely analyze the two frameworks against the aforementioned metrics, we find that ReactJS is more efficient at building large and complex web applications. On the contrary, Vue.js is best suited for building small and lightweight web applications with a simple user interface.
