Speaking as a leader in the enterprise mobility consulting industry, we at Innovative Architects believe that companies who are in the business of writing web software should consider integrating AngularJS into their organization if they haven’t already.
What’s AngularJS? Simply put, it is an open source framework for building dynamic web apps that is rapidly growing in popularity— so much so that experts are suggesting it’s the next “jQuery.”
According to the AngularJS Developer Guide, the structured framework “lets you use HTML as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. Angular’s data binding and dependency injection eliminate much of the code you would otherwise have to write. And it all happens within the browser, making it an ideal partner with any server technology.”
Here are 3 ways how AngularJS is setting itself apart from the competitors:
1. High-powered Backers
With as much as they use it, AngularJS is essentially a Google product. Google maintains the framework and pairs new versions with other Google products. Two such products are DoubleClick and YouTube. DoubleClick’s production team used AngularJS to rewrite the marketplace’s front-end code, and YouTube’s new PS3 app is thanks to AngularJS.
AngularJS is popular apart from Google as well. In terms of desirability, Angular is searched online 16 times more than React (Facebook’s framework and its closes competitor). What’s more, Angular’s competitors seem to be losing ground.
2. Single-Page App Use is on the Rise
The powerful electronics on the market today are leading consumers to become more sophisticated, and they demand the same of their user experience. AngularJS is capable of creating single-page apps (SPAs) that are complex and act just as desktop or mobile apps do. You can be sure you’re using an SPA if you click on parts of the app and the page doesn’t reload.
3. Improved Design Integration
AngularJS was created after engineers discovered that designers could improve the development process by placing UI elements into a page and engineers could include the logic afterward. This allows developers to focus on making sure everything on an app looks right (and will appeal to users) and let the engineers come back later to fill in the code that makes everything function.
These are just three ways in which AngularJS is helping businesses stay ahead in the world of technology solutions.
