React vs Vue (react wins for us again)

UPDATE 16-3-2019: React vs vue (react wins for us again)

This is a follow up on the research done about a year ago: https://www.fokoya.com/2018/01/08/react-vs-angular-vs-vue-vs-ember-vs/

Some search terms in google which show that react ecosystem is still much bigger than vue ecosystem, even though vue now has more stars on github, and its much easier to find solutions in react than in vue.
NOTE: For more specific and narrow searches vue sometimes does not have any relevant results while react has relevant results. For wider searches both have relevant results but react has more of them. Bottom line if vue keeps up in the right direction it will probably still take it a few years to reach the size of the react ecosystem and until then companies developing with react will have easier time finding solutions to problems they encounter and finding existing code/components to use. The gap is even bigger if considering the native solutions.

1. “mixed content webview react” vs “mixed content webview vue”
react has x3 results and more relevant first results

2. “webview custom error page react” vs “webview custom error page vue”
react has x3 results and more relevant first results

3. “react “deep linking”” vs “vue “deep linking””
react has x3 results and more relevant results

4. “”request hook” react” vs “”request hook” vue”
react has x3 results and more relevant results (vue doesnt have any relevant results almost)

5. “web push react” vs “web push vue”
react has x3 results

6. “theming react” vs “theming vue”
react has x3 results but vue does have relevant results

7. “page unload react” vs “page unload vue”
react has x3 results but vue does have relevant results

8. “animations react” vs “animations vue”
react has much more results but both have relevant results

Also the following newer comparisons still show that the differences in our original research hold:

So for now still seems react is a better choice for us.
