Vue vs React Performance Comparison
There have been several studies and comparisons made between Vue and React regarding their performance. According to this 3rd party benchmark, which focuses on raw render/update performance with very simple component trees. Vue outperforms React in most scenarios. The study found that Vue is faster than React when it comes to rendering time, especially for large-scale applications.
Another performance test conducted by JS Framework Benchmark showed that Vue outperforms React in the following scenarios:
- Updating data
- Adding and removing items from a list
- Sorting a list
- Selecting an item from a list
However, in scenarios like rendering a large list of items or creating deep tree structures, React outperforms Vue.
Benchmarking Vue and React
Another way to benchmark Vue and React is to use the Chrome DevTools. The DevTools provide a performance profiling tool that developers can use to compare the performance of Vue and React in real time. The profiling tool shows how long it takes for each framework to render and update components, allowing developers to identify performance bottlenecks and optimize their applications.
