“Why AngularJS?” – 7 facts about the most flexible JavaScript framework

Main

AngularJS was born in 2009 and since its inception it has created its buzz in the market. It is quickly becoming one of the most dominant JavaScript framework for professional web development.

As most of the developers already know, AngularJS is an open-source Java Script framework, maintained by Google that assists with running single-page applications. Most frameworks nowadays are simply a bundle of existing tools. They are an integrated tool set, but not very elegant. AngularJS is the next generation framework where each tool has been designed to work with every other tool in an interconnected way.

Here are the 7 facts why AngularJS is the most flexible and getting popular:

Get started in minutes & less coding: Getting started with AngularJS is very easy. With a few attributes added to your HTML, you can have a simple Angular app up in under 5 minutes!

MVC done right: AngularJS uses MVC architecture for developing web application. For implementing MVC you just need to split your app and rest all is managed by AngularJS. MVC architecture stands for Model View Controller in which:

  • Model maintains the data.
  • View is responsible for displaying of data.
  • Controller acts as a bridge to establish connection between View and Model.

Data models are POJO: The Plain Old JavaScript Object! POJO provides you all the standard JavaScript functionalities for object manipulation. It enables you to remove and add properties from the objects and can loop over objects at well.

 3

Two-way Data Binding: While the traditional approach to data binding has a lot of benefits when it comes to performing complex data manipulations and calculations, it can introduce some problems with respect to the design of the web application’s front-end architecture. With AngularJS’s use of two-way data binding, your application can greatly simplify its presentation layer, allowing the UI to be built off of a cleaner, less-destructive approach to DOM presentation.

 4

Behavior with directives: You can change the behavior of HTML tags with the directives. It is a powerful feature which allows you to create customized tag. The use of directive tag tells the compiler to add some functionality on DOM element or can even transform it. It also has wide range of pre-built directives available which you can choose from.

 5

Flexibility with filters: A filter refines the value before displaying like changing the decimal places of a number, converting a string to upper case or adding pagination to your web page. Filters are similar to directives and work as a standalone function which are focused on data transformations. You can also create your own custom filters.

 6

Unit testing ready: Unit testing has become a standard in most software companies. Unit testing improves code’s orthogonality. Fundamentally, code is called “orthogonal” when it’s easy to change. Unit tests greatly improve code’s orthogonality by forcing you to write modular logic units, instead of large code chunks.
