I’ve been learning React JS over last couple of days. I haven’t got very far but I’ve learned a bit about it and I’ve created a couple of web apps with it. So I wanted to share my thoughts on it and compare it to Angular 2.
Everyone always says you can’t compare React JS to Angular 2 but I think that’s rubbish.
I know one’s a library (React) and Angular 2 is a framework. But that doesn’t mean you can’t compare them, because if you were to build a new app you would choose React or Angular or a number of other different options. But you wouldn’t build an app with both of them at the same time. You would be choosing between one or the other.

I first started learning how to code at age 12 when I taught myself how to make basic Windows batch scripts. It wasn’t long after that when the easy-to-use GUI drawing feature of Visual Basic 6 had me hooked on programming for good.
I graduated onto making proper network connected applications shortly thereafter. I was obsessed with making client-server programs that could talk to each other over TCP. I spent many of my younger years hacking away at the VB6 WinSock API. First learning how to make one client talk to a server, then figuring out how to make the server handle multiple clients at once and so on…
More recently I was tasked with making a real-time scoreboard for a company I’m currently contracting for. It involved an AngularJS front-end with a WebSocket client and a Node.JS server that would accept connections and broadcast the latest scores from a text file.
To be honest, before taking on this challenge, my Node.JS/Angular experience was sparse at best. But I saw the challenge as an opportunity and quickly learned what I needed to get the job done.
I was so amazed I thought I would make a tutorial explaining how to create a multi threaded chat client and server using Ionic and Node.JS.

Now for the third and final part of this three part tutorial: How to build an app. If you missed out on the first two instalments, you can read part one here, and part two here. For our third part, I will explain how to build the app using the Ionic framework.
