What is Angular?
Angular is a development platform built on Typescript. As a platform, Angular includes:
– A component-based framework for building scalable web applications.
– A collection of well-integrated libraries that cover a wide variety of features, including routing, forms management, client-server communication, and more.
– A suite of developer tools to help you develop, build, test, and update your code.
Angular fits the definition of a framework the best, even though it’s much more lightweight than a typical framework and that’s why many confuse it with a library.
Why is Angular called Angular?
Because HTML has Angular brackets and “ng” sounds like “Angular”.
Angular can be written inside the angle brackets of HTML that is why it is known as Angular JS. The use of ‘ng’ commonly in all its directives is to make the browser understand that this HTML page is making use of Angular.
Why you should choose Angular framework development for your next project?
1. Automatic synchronization with two-way data binding
The angular framework provides two-way data binding. It seamlessly synchronizes the data between Model as well as View, so when data is modified or changed, these two components get updated automatically in real-time.
2. Bug fixes
With the latest Angular version, there have been several bug fixes and issues in compiler, route, core, service workers, modules, and others that have been resolved.
3. Code consistency and reusability
Thanks to the Angular CLI (command line interface) and documentation style guide, they both drive consistency at the pioneer level. Angular CLI tool enables the Angular developers to create initial projects, perform tests and integrate diverse features in the same project while keeping the entire team on the same page. Moreover, with Angular, the investment of time and effort is relatively less as it enables the reuse of codes and simplifies the development process.
4. Declarative UI
6. Supported by Google:
Google is one of the biggest firms in technology and the talented pool of Google developers are offering Long-Term Support (LTS) for Angular to scale up to enterprise Angular applications development. Also, a lot of big brands such as Netflix, Gmail, YouTube TV, Upwork, and others use the Angular framework.
Other advantages of the Angular framework are easy to access information, greater data security, ease of maintenance, and easy testing.
