Colton Colcleasure, thanks for reading and for sharing your opinion. Any estimates regarding popularity are mainly subjective viewpoints. Even numbers and ratings can’t be qualified as 100% accurate.
We mainly use Angular and we’ve used ng2 for one of the largest projects, when it was still in beta. In most cases, our clients choose Angular, so for these and few other reasons we consider it to be so popular. Though, considering the stats, React doesn’t trail far behind. However, everything’s relative.
Once again, thank you for your time.
