      AngularJS (not Angular+) in 2019?

      It seems that 2019 is a typo, it should be 2010.


        It should be illegal to compare Javascript runtime (Node), frontend libraries (React), frontend frameworks (Vue) and full stack frameworks (Rails).

          Pros of Ruby on Rails
          • Provides advanced array class

          This is a really important advantage even for so mature and giant framework as RoR.

            Cons of ReactJS

            Poor documentation

            Seriously? Seems to me, that in comparison with other frameworks, the React's documentation is very good
              Such a deep, mature and accurate article. Nice…
