AngularJS is an open source JavaScript framework that lets you create amazing
AJAX-based web apps. Generally, the complexity involved in building large-scale
and complex AJAX apps is tremendous. AngularJS aims to minimize this complexity
by offering a great environment for development, as well as the means to test your
As a client-side MVW (Model-View-Whatever) framework,oneof the most powerful
features of AngularJS is its ability to bring structure to your web apps. Another nice
thing about AngularJS is that it extends the HTML vocabulary to make it suitable
for building web apps, enabling you to create them declaratively; the resulting code
is clean and very readable.
AngularJS ships with many great features out of the box, which you'll use in your
day-to-day programming. It supports two-way data binding, nice templating, easy
REST interaction, custom component creation, multiple views, routing, and much
more. AngularJS also plays well with other libraries and frameworks. For example,
you can combine jQueryand AngularJS together tocreate awesome webapplications.
AngularJS also demands no commitment. You can include Angular in your web
page and use as many features as you like. If you need only the two-way data
binding, but no REST interaction, you can employ that feature alone.
AngularJS favors Test Driven Development very much, and features great support
for both unit and end-to-end testing. But it also takes debugging very seriously. In
2012, the AngularJS team released a Chrome plugin called Batarang which makes
the debugging process abreeze. As a result, the productsyou develop with AngularJS
are very robust and maintainable.
