React vs. Angular

Hi everyone,

I am looking into Angular and React right now for a modern frontend for my Neo4j project. What are the pros and cons for using the one or the other with Neo4j as a database? Are there any? I saw a lot of webinars / articles about Neo4j & React but not so many about Neo4j & Angular. Is there a reason for that or is that just coincidence?

Looking forward to your insights!


Angular is more used in Europe and more in traditional enterprise environments.

React is more actively developed I and more popular in the US. It's also used for all tools in Neo4j, actually Neo4j Browser was originally Angular and was rewritten into React.

Both frameworks have their pro's and cons and there are a lot of articles on the web for one another,eg.
