Now I am sure you must have stumbled upon tons and tons of write-ups or posts that emphasize on features of the framework, for example, it offers Two-way data binding, DOM manipulation, improved server performance, faster application prototyping and so more. Well, I won’t discuss those, in fact, the post sums up everything that I have been hearing about AngularJS – A better choice.
Right from making decisions about product features to the technology decisions that will affect future agility of the codebase, there are thousands of decisions to be taken into account. I find Angular quite opinionated as it keeps on providing developers defaults for things like network connectivity, state management, language choice, build toolchain. The following tools are tested and validated on the continuous basis in order to make sure that the Angular platform moves forward at a steady and reliable pace. Besides, every organization has a different need, due to which Angular lets you swap out these defaults whenever appropriate. For example, Material Design was built to take advantage of the latest and greatest of Angular, but Angular allows companies to build or pick any UI Library that meets their needs.
Created at Google to solve Google-scale problems, the platform enables one to build and manage shared code and to divide work among appropriate roles. If we have a close look at the structure of a trustworthy Angularjs development company in India, you will come across teams comprising of separate designers, engineers, quality assurance, and other roles. It may quite interest you to know that in order to separate these concerns and to allow developers to collaborate smoothly, the Component model was designed.
Maintenance is another concern of course for developers. The framework addresses this concern in two ways. First, by making use of TypeScript in order to find bugs and mistakes earlier in the process. TypeScript even allows professionals especially the amateur ones to a codebase to more quickly get up to speed due to their ability to more quickly see the types of data moving through the application.
Without a shadow of a doubt, Angularjs allows companies to understand and plan for future changes to the platform. Being a Google product, the framework is capable enough to take advantage of Google’s testing infrastructure. Each and every change you make in Angular is validated against every Angular project within Google. Which means before any public release, the framework is already in use across hundred projects maximizing the chances of credibility.
Programmers making use of Angular mostly come from one of two backgrounds. One where developers are familiar with declarative templates, dependency injection, pipes, services, and many of the concepts that are core to Angular. Other background includes developers coming from Java or C#.NET. Angular applications, in general, are broken into modules and components due to which programmers require to have the ability to import and export subparts of their application as needed.
You will come across a wide range of reusable tools, libraries and code sample out of which few have either updated to work with Angular, or are already in the process of being updated. Companies providing public and corporate training like Oasis Digital, Thinkster, Galvanize, and Thoughtram are part of the Angular ecosystem also includes
By now I hope you know why Angular is so powerful and popular. And the aforementioned reasons should be more than enough to convince you to make the switch to the newer, more agile platform. However, not all web apps should use Angular. For example- if you are writing a game or a computationally intensive math program, there is no reason why Angular would fit your particular problem domain. But for generic web apps, it should serve as a viable framework to build upon.
So that’s all for now! Keep watching the space to get a better perspective!
