Currently, Angular is rendered in all major browsers and has significant support from Google, that frequently releases new updates adding new features to enhance user experience.
Frequent versions update
Since 2009, when Angular was launched by Google, different updates were continuously released. The first version Angular.js has been greatly modified since the first release. Now, the the latest version is framework is Angular 7.o which has significant number of advanced features. For example, it enables development of high-performing progressive web applications, which can work both online and offline.
Support of Single Page Applications
Angular enables building scalable and flexible Single Page Applications (SPA), that can use HTML as a template language.
SPA is a type of web applications that load a single HTML page, which is dynamically updated. SPAs provide better user experience because they don’t require refreshing the full webpage to communicate with the back-end servers.
Benefits of two-way data binding
Data-binding helps to avoid numerous lines of boilerplate code, so the developer can focus on the application. In Angular the two-way data binding is implemented using the ngModel directive. The UI gets immediate update every time the data store is changed. In comparison to Angular, React follows one-way data binding.
Code Reusability and lazy-loading in Angular
In Angular the code is organized in modules. The application’s code in Angular is divided into several reusable modules, which are combined with each other. With modules, the code can be kept organized and properly maintained. One of the biggest advantages of modularity is lazy-loading, when one or few application features can be loaded on demand.
Angular is perfect for building interactive elements and components of a website. It supports MVC (Model View Controller) architecture which helps developers to structure the source code effortlessly without writing the MVC pipeline.
Angular enables easy integration of third-party features. You can use such frameworks as Ionic, Telerik’s Kendo UI, Wijmo to add different user interface components quickly.
Cross Platform usage
Angular with TypeScript is considered the most dynamic way of developing web applications of different sizes that can run in any advanced web browser and on mobile platforms. To improve developers’ experience such features as API Client, Routing, Filters, Content Sanitization and Animations were introduced.
Angular is also used to develop desktop applications for Mac, Windows, and Linux.
Popular websites developed with Angular
The Guardian, PayPal, Upwork, Freelancer, Lego, Netflix, iStock Photo, YouTube for PS3, jetBlue, Vevo, Mallzee.
Due to the fact that Angular is supported both by Google and massive open community, we predict that its features will get constant improvement every few months when a new version appears. Incora developers are experienced both in Angular 7 and older versions, which are used on numerous projects. We hope that now you have no doubts about potential use of Angular framework and its benefits for development.
