AngularJS and ReactJS libraries - performance analysis


The article contains a comparison of the performance of selected JavaScript libraries. The analyzed programs have been written using AngularJS and ReactJS. Performance testing was carried out through the implementation of several applications using JavaScript, with
a usage of both libraries. For each of them performance measurement was made and on its basis the results analysis was prepared. The analysis was performed using the development tools and by a mechanism contained in the code.
