Angular is a widely popular framework maintained by Google, while Aurelia is relatively less popular. Angular has a larger community, a vast ecosystem, and is widely adopted in enterprise-level projects. Aurelia, on the other hand, has a smaller but dedicated community.
Angular follows the component-based architecture where components are the building blocks of the application. Aurelia also follows a similar component-based architecture but offers more flexibility as it is based on modern web standards and focuses on simplicity.
Angular has a steep learning curve due to its extensive feature set and complex concepts like dependency injection, modules, and reactive programming. Aurelia, on the other hand, has a gentler learning curve and is often appreciated for its simplicity and intuitive design.
Both Angular and Aurelia have good performance, but Angular's performance can be impacted by its larger size and complex architecture. Aurelia, being a more lightweight framework, generally offers better performance.
Angular provides a highly opinionated approach to application development, which offers comprehensive features and guidelines but can limit flexibility. Aurelia, on the other hand, offers more flexibility and allows developers to choose and combine libraries and tools as needed.
Community and Ecosystem
Angular has a large community, a vast ecosystem of libraries, tools, and resources. It is backed by Google, which ensures continuous support and updates. Aurelia has a smaller community and a more limited ecosystem but is known for its friendly and helpful community.
