Final Major Project — Angular Continued
In order to further investigate the benefits of using Angular within my application I followed a tutorial on angularjs.org. The angularjs.org website is the official website of Angular by Google and has an introduction to angular tutorial in which you develop a web app to view some android devices.
The tutorial is available at: https://docs.angularjs.org/tutorial.
The tutorial whilst fairly easy to follow isn’t the most readable of documents as it is in fairly complex technical language which did impact my understanding of it so I had to re-read parts of it a few times.
Because of all of these reasons I’ve decided that I would like to use it to control my application. This won’t be easy however as I didn’t start creating my application in this way, I need to massively restructure my application to work in a way where I have set views that I change using angular instead of showing and hiding different divs etc.
This isn’t something I anticipated and is going to slow down the development of my application without making any visual or functional progress to the application however at a later point it will have huge benefits.
I need to work out whether with the time I have remaining it is worth spending the time doing it now and risking not having enough time to add all of the functionality I’d like to by changing the structure and using angular which I’m not familiar with to control the application now or add more functionality for now but that would in turn make it much more difficult and time consuming to change to angular as a method of control later.
Big decisions to be made!
