The Difference Between ReactJS & AngularJS:
The ReactJS library is for building user interfaces while AngularJS is a web application development framework. That said, AngularJS 1.x is quite different from AngularJS 2.x and the latter will not be released until the end of 2016.

A Framework vs A Set Of Libraries:
AngularJS is a web application development framework that offers many out of the box solutions. Many functional designing decisions are actually determined by the framework. When starting on a new project, using AngularJS, will not be a walk in the park. If you spend time working with it, you will discover what properties are in place and where everything fits.
You might sometimes find yourself fighting with the framework instead of dealing with the actual project. If something is not going right and the framework is not designed for what you need, you will spend some time trying to figure it out. AngularJS does offer a huge community of users with useful tips and extensions.
- ReactJS is a solution for many components with many single purpose tools and ReactJS is just one building block. You are at liberty to use only the components or tools you need for an application. You will be able to build a light-weight, high-performance, quick-fix that will address exactly what you need.
- There are some disadvantages working with ReactJS. You have to spend some time finding the correct library for your project and how to integrate it with other libraries. You will discover that libraries are written by different developers and may comprise of different practices and thoughts.
- Without JSX, you probably should put your money on AngularJS. But, JSX will help build a more readable UI component code, making everything a great deal easier.
Angular JS 2.x will include a new change detection based on change detector classes generated in run-time and are claiming to be faster. ReactJS change detection is based on Virtual DOM, meaning, ReactJS takes the DOM to a new state with the previous state and renders the difference. It's much easier to understand along with debug add-ons. Even though AngularJS 2.x has better performance, ReactJS will remain simpler and better to use.
- To sum it all up, it's possible to build a working development environment for all these options. It will take some effort and work to make it happen. There are going to be changes this year as many IDE vendors are working on ES6 support along with Microsoft Visual Code which is coming soon.
- AngularJS 2.x is expected to go into production by the end of 2016, though it's not a given.
