Why is AngularJS turning into the most popular these days?

Although AngularJS is a self proclaimed superheroic JavaScript framework, you need a deeper insight and appraisal before adding it on your Web Development program. We know that jQuery is currently in use by different projects and developers also use many alternative javascript libraries to use functionality not provided by jQuery and jQuery plugins which provide infinite scrollers, sliders and UI elements. With so many demands of the web world it is difficult to find a javascript framework which covers them all.

In this article we will see how AngularJS is more than what we think of it.

Deals with the development problem

One major problems which Anroid and iPhone App Developers enconter while writing code for web applications is that the objects on the server side aren’t represented the same on the client-side. It is fine when the applications are not complex but difficulty arises as the level of complexity increases as it can help to map the objects on both the sides. It further also leads to terminology issues, as the actions of the person on the client-side varies from that on the server-side. It doesn’t have the same input methods and sometimes it is into data attributes or concealed inputs.

Thus, managing this complexity becomes very hard. But in AngularJS there are ng-resource which can be used to create services that gets up to REST APIs and reverts back that object in JSON and further methods can be attached to make it a completely functional object. Working on it feels similar to working on the server side. Moreover, programmers can have get(), save(), update() methods that maps to REST API and that too without putting in much efforts.

These methods are somewhere similar to Data Mapper methods we have on the server side.

A framework size for all types of applications

Page loading time is major factor which contributes a lot towards page abandonment. The average user has no patience to wait for websites which take aeons to load. Moreover, loading time of a single page is quite necessary for your website’s loading time in whole. In order to analyze the impact of javascript framework on your loading time you consider the size of the framework and the bootstrapping time taken by the framework.

Allows parallel development

Dependencies management is one of the key strengths of AngulaJS, though it hasn’t been completely obliterated but it has been managed a lot. It has a massive in-built grid which makes it quite easy to carry on multiple key operations in a streamline flow. Applications developed in Javascript are very simple to program and test without the risk of getting crashed which was not same with the normal Javascript applications.

Make Single page applications easily

It is difficult to develop single page applications. However, with AngularJS framework it has become quite convenient to develop high performance single page apps which are also responsive to different screen sizes and thus provides a far better user experience than the web based applications. These apps also tend to reduce the overall network traffic as they are rendered on the client-site, thus reducing the load on the server.

AngularJS is a complete package which offers features from templates and routing to linking for establishing a fully-functional SPA application.

Backesd with adroit support

The Applications built on AngularJS are bound to yield good results as it comprises of a vast trained community of developers which can use their creativity to harness the innovative tool to the fullest. It further offers an open design document forum where developers can contribute their suggestions and can help in straightening the communities experience. All these suggestions and queries are thus answered by the core AngularJS Developers team.

Automatica Dirty checks

There is an automatic Dirty Checking feature in AngularJS which allows you to modify only limited property of arbitrary object. This feature do not requires you to use getters and setters to access your model data. AngularJS automatically detects the alterations and gives notifications to all the watchers for the same.

AngularJs supports app testing

With so much fragmentation in the device world, App testing demands a lot of attention to various problems coming out of real time scenarios. In order to deal with this, AngularJS is powered with mocks specifically crafted for providing in-built services such as $timeout and $http

Although a written piece of document won’t be sufficient to describe its functionalities. To uncover all, you need to delve into the deep skin by using it.
