AngularJS is the leading application development framework. Nowadays, web development is a challenge for any developer and these challenges can be overcome by providing the right tools and technologies.
MVC got closer to MVVM
The majority of the frameworks implement MVC. It lets you split your app into MVC components and later you need to join them together; that requires a lot of effort on the developers end and opens up space for code errors. However, AngularJS manages the components and asks you to split your app into the components. AngularJS acts as the middleware and you do not need to rewrite and reshape the codes.
AngularJS brings additional functionality to HTML via directives, imaging that HTML is so rich and strong that we do not have to manipulate DOM. Directives are standalone, can work in parallel, and offers swift development.
Ex: Directives can be:
Custom HTML elements: <angular></angular>
Custom attributes: <div data-myticker></div>
Custom class names: <div class=”myticker”></div>
Code less and get more is what AngualrJS gives to its developers. This includes MVC pipeline management, HTML managed view, data binding is smooth, and data models can be written without getters/setters function. As discussed above, directives are separate from the application code and can be written by other teams in parallel with running into integration issues. Less coding helps developers to track all the modules in a systematic manner and the entire development cycle leads to a smaller financial budgets.
Testing made easy
Interpretive User Interface
Single Page Applications made smooth
The benefits of single page applications are becoming more and more popular across the globe. More functionality is being moved to the web, this approach amazingly contributes to the responsive design. Single page applications provide an experience that feels almost like a native app in web apps. These applications even help in reduce the server load by rendering on the client as well as it reduces network traffic – sending a payload of data and turning it into markup at the client instead of sending a full page of markup.
Whether you already knew about Angular and just wanted to see more reasons to continue working on it, or if you’re starting for the first time, I have an easy “next step” for you to learn more.
