About

Initially released in 2010, Angular is a Javascript front-end framework maintained by Google for building web application front-ends. Its goal is to simplify development and testing by providing easy implementations of MVC and MVVM architectures.

Angular is the front-end part of the MEAN stack, which also includes MongoDB, Express, and Node.js.

There are several large organizations and companies that use Angular for their web applications, among others Wolfram Alpha, NBC, Walgreens, Intel, ABC News etc. Angular is also the 10th most starred repository on Github with 56.1k stars.

Technology

Angular's design is based on the belief that declarative programming goes well with UIs and connecting components, while business logic should be written in an imperative manner. It extends HTML and thus gives it the ability to present dynamic content with two-way data-binding, which enables automatic synchronization of models and views. to improve testability and performance, explicit DOM manipulation should be avoided and decoupled from application logic. Angular relies heavily on dependency injection.

In Angular, due to its MVC-architecture, the scope forms the Model and all its variables are accessible by the View and Controller, which the scope binds together.

Angular has a 3-phase bootstrapper, which:

  1. creates a new injector,
  2. compiles the directives and
  3. links the directives to the scope.

There are currently two supported versions of Angular. Versions >= 2 are simply called Angular, while the legacy version is called AngularJS. With version 1.6, AngularJS received several concepts of Angular, e.g. component-based architecture. Angular itself is TypeScript-based. The latest version of Angular is 4.2.3.

Conclusion

Angular is a technology supported by the giant, Google, one of the most popular pieces of code of all time, and, most importantly, a framework that allows for development of robust and secure web applications, supported by great tooling, which makes it a breeze to work with. There is simply no reason to not pick it for your next project, and our Angular experts will be happy to help you figure out how to best apply it for an expedient realization of your plans.
