What is AngularJS?
The popularity of SPA-based web apps has taken off based on the fact that they allow us to deliver rich, dynamic, and fast-loading content that mimics that of a desktop application. One big difference between Angular based sites and traditional ones like plain JS is that Angular expects the browser to build the web page.
Keeping Three concepts in mind because of which Angular was developed – Make it modular, make it testable, make it maintainable. Angular 1 gave us modules to effectively separate out our code for testing and maintenance. And Angular 2 brings us components an even better way of separating out our logic.
Angular version 1 was first published in 2009 and became a massive success with millions of developers adopting and using the framework. On the other hand, Angular version 2 introduces sweeping changes along with a complete code rewrite.
Angular JS has been developed by Google and hence there is a huge community to learn from. It’s easy to learn. Most frameworks require programmers to splitting the app into multiple MVC components. After that, the programmer has to write a code to put them together again. AngularJS, however, strings it together automatically. That saves you time and reduces the app’s time-to-market. The development and testing of a SPA are incredibly swift with the Angular JS framework.
Angular tries to offer a component-based approach. This is easy to overlook when you are faced with a lot of other complexity. It can handle the project’s initial framework effectively. You can add animations and transitions anytime during the project to build a powerful website as well as applications.
We now try to create most of our components in such a way that they can be used in multiple applications without changing a single line of code. We even use components in a Microsoft Windows 8.1 WinRT application (that uses AngularJS) developed in Visual Studio and it all works fine. Component-driven AngularJS development is still in its early stages but it is incredibly promising. Apart from its technical benefits, it highly increases productivity and offers a lot of practical advantages that benefit teams of any size.
