Developed by Google
This is obvious but what makes Angular JS such an incredible alternative is it being made by Google. There are other JS frameworks that seem to work fine but reliability becomes an issue since they have been built by hobbyist as facilitated by the open source community. Angular JS on the other hand has been built and is being maintained by Google experts. This indicates that developers have the option to learn from the highest certified open source experts and your questions will be sorted out by experienced and skilled professionals.
Service providers where they belong
Angular JS seems to be a complete solution for frond end web development. Using this, there is no extra plugin requirement to build a data driven web framework. With Angular JS, we have MVVM to the rescue. While Models can interact with $Scope objects, they also can be subsequently rendered and delivered by the Views. Thereafter, the views can be routed via the $routeProvider object. This facilitates organizing and deep linking Controllers and Views and turning them into easily navigable URLs.
Unit testing ready
Other facilities of Angular JS include RESTful actions, Dependency Injections, Data Binding, Extending HTML and converting it into Templates, Expert level Testing and several other facilities. This is a thoroughly declarative user interface we are talking about and one that has behaviors with directives, flexible filters, easy DOM manipulations and context aware communications. These certainly beat the traditional method of app testing and invoke component interaction to check the readiness.
Getting started in minutes
It is incredibly easy to get started with Angular JS. Just add a few attributes to HTML scripts and you have an app ready in less than a couple of minutes. The final codes aren’t also riddled in event handlers and callbacks for all the objects that have been touched, enabled, selected or clicked. Angular JS does an intelligent heavy lifting of all the controller functions.
1. Add the ng-app directive to the <html> tag so Angular knows to run on the page:
<html lang=”en” ng-app>
2. Add the Angular <script> tag to the end of your <head> tag:
…meta and stylesheet tags…
3. Add regular HTML. AngularJS directives are accessed through HTML attributes, while expressions are evaluated with double-bracket notation:
<li ng-repeat=”activity in activities”>
More and more number of professionals are turning to Angular JS as the scripting language. It is already facilitating several well maintained and robust projects worldwide and anyone is free to use it from AngularJS.org.
