AngularJS supports parallel development
AngularJS comes with a framework size that suits a wide array of applications
The size of framework along with the bootstrapping time consumed by it play a vital role in ensuring the most precise analysis of the framework’s impact on the website’s loading time. Talking about AngularJS, well, its version 1.2.22 has a size of 39.5KB- commendable enough to allow the developers to build apps that score high on the aesthetics scale.
AngularJS is backed by an active community of developers
One of the best things about AngularJS framework is that it is backed by an immensely trained and highly experienced community of developers who are ever indulged in harnessing the framework to an optimum level. In other words, as a developer working with AngularJS, you can easily contribute your valuable feedback and suggestions and receive the best suited answers to different queries by core AngularJS development team.
With AngularJS, streamlined workflow is guaranteed by the built-in Intrinsic Dependency Injection feature
By choosing the AngularJS framework, you won’t have to face any type of delays associated with the web app development and testing phases. The pre-built Dependency Injection feature offers developers an absolute flexibility of asking for dependencies, thereby saving their valuable time and efforts in finding the dependencies by themselves. Not only dependencies, but even if require a quick access to any of the AngularJS services, you can rest assured about receiving them instantly.
AngularJS supports seamless real-time app testing
Today, it’s quite easy to spot fragmentation when it comes to the wide collection of devices that are compatible with different mobile platforms. This has resulted into the growing need for paying individual attention to an app’s testing as per the real-time scenarios. With AngularJS, you need not worry about this because the framework is loaded with special mockups that have been designed for offering default services including $http and $timeout. Both these services aid in performing an in-depth testing of the app for any possible bugs.
Complex web app development is handled well by AngularJS framework
Visible difference in the way objects are represented on the client-side and server-side accounts for a major point of concern for the web app developers. While the issue doesn’t post as a huge threat during simple app development, an increase in the app’s complexity leads to major terminology crisis. With varied actions of individuals on the client-side and server-side, the app lacks in same input methods. Thanks to existence of AngularJS framework which comprises of ng-resources that can be used for creating different services that function similar to REST APIs and further revert the object in JSON.
Additionally, you are also free to attach new methods so as to make the object fully-functional. While working with AngularJS, you’ll feel at home as the framework offers you an experience of working on the server side. And not to forget, you can use get(). Update() and save() methods for mapping to REST API, without investing a lot of time and efforts. For your information, all these methods are quite similar to the Data Mapper methods available on the server side by default.
AngularJS is the perfect match for creating high performing single page applications
With AngularJS framework, you can avail the freedom of developing fully responsive single page apps that can easily fit different screen sizes perfectly. Plus, these apps are also capable of offering an improved user experience as compared to web apps. Since the AngularJS-based single page apps are rendered on the client side, they reduce the network traffic by decreasing the load on the web sever. As a complete package featuring multiple templates, linking and routing; AngularJS is indeed an excellent option for building scintillating single page apps.
The Automatic Dirty Checking feature offers a quick way to access the model data
AngularJS comes with an Automatic Dirty Checking feature which enables you to change a certain property associated with an arbitrary object. The framework would automatically detect the modification and provide instant notifications to all the developers who’re working on web project under focus.
AngularJS is loaded with commendable Developers controls
The non-functional nature of developers controls in the non-ASP.NET space is a thing of the past. With AngularJS, you can make the most of the new concept called “directive” which lets you create innovative HTML elements and attributes to be used in multiple web projects. Hence, you can simply drop the new directive, tag it with multiple directives/attributes and get them up and running for your app.
The ease of classifying applications building block makes way for swift development of apps
AngularJS is loaded with multiple Services, Directives, Controllers, Factories and Views; thereby allowing you to categorize your app’s building block conveniently. You can further divide the categories into modules which include a certain role during the app development phases. For instance, controllers would be taking care of the functionalities that have already been showcased in the UI.
Though these were only some of the high-end pros of AngularJS framework, there’s a lot for you to explore. I would recommend you giving it a try during your next web development journey.
