Today, angular.js is maintained primarily by Google and a number of industry partners interested in seeing it thrive. Among its strongest points are easier testing and the integration of a number of components required for rich internet applications.
Are you using angular.js as a web application developer? If so, you know that the framework has a lot of advantages. If not, you should at least look into it. To prove the point, here are five things to love about angular.js:
1. Angular Is Perfect for Agile Development
2. Angular Supports Dependency Injection
Dependencies are the sharp pins that pop developer balloons on a daily basis. Just one dependency problem can set a project back considerably. One of the strengths of angular.js is that it supports dependency injection. Simply put, developers can break down a project into separate modules that are all initialized separately even though they share dependencies.
3. Single Page Superiority
Some people refer to angular.js as a framework that represents what the standard web browser would have been like had it been designed to run Web-based applications. Whether that’s true or not it’s hard to deny that angular.js is superior for developing single page applications. Angular includes the necessary infrastructure and journaling right out-of-the-box; it even includes templates for faster app development.
4. Angular Was Built with Testing in Mind
Some frameworks are built with the knowledge that testing is necessary but not all that important to the framework itself. Angular is different. From the first stages of development, the framework was built with testing in mind. Developers who use it are therefore test driven. In other words, the whole goal is to develop, complete, and test a single module at one time so that when all of the modules are connected everything just works. This is a better way of meeting deadlines and improving delivery.
5. Angular Makes for Easier UI Manipulation
Angular offers a number of features that make manipulating user interfaces a lot easier. For example, the framework makes it possible to structure a UI so that it can be understood by virtually everyone involved in the project regardless of individual tasks. This results in fewer UI hang-ups and faster delivery.
