5 Reasons why we Love AngularJS Development

5 Reasons why we Love AngularJS Development

There are a lot of Javascript Frameworks to choose from these days and they’re all really hot too! AngularJS, Ember, Backbone, JQuery to name a few.

However, as it stands, AngularJS has quickly become one of our favorites. With completed projects like MetaTools and Jell it stands firmly amongst our developers’ preferred toys.

In this article, I’m going to try and explore just a few reasons why we’re so eager to develop state-of-the-art web applications on this particular framework.

1. It’s a Google brainchild.

It’s no secret that this particular framework was spawned from the brilliant minds of some of Google’s cream of the crop. We are certain that we’re working with reliable code whose efficiency will scale together with our projects. We look into a solid foundation when developing our web applications, so Angular seems like a safe choice. And now that the former pitfall of Googlebot not crawling JavaScript is behind us, it’s safe to say this particular reason will only keep on being reinforced.

2. It’s an amazing solution for timely development

We can start using Angular with very little effort to set up. It’s just simple – our code isn’t full of event handlers and callbacks in order to deal with objects we’ve interacted with. AngularJS finds the controller function, creates the dependency between the template and the controller, and fetches the data rendering it on the screen all by itself.

3. It has a great feature package

Just to name a couple we really use extensively:

  • REST

REST actions are standard for server-client communication. A single line of JavaScript code can quickly contact the server and fetch the data we require to interact with web pages. AngularJS then turns it into a simple JavaScript object, as Models, following the MVVM (Model View View-Model). Which brings us to…

  • MVVM

Models talk to ViewModel objects (through something called the $scope object).
Views then render and deliver them in an HTML. the $routeProvider object can be used to route Views, enabling us to deep-link and organize Views and Controllers, turning them into navigable URLs. AngularJS also provides controllers which are stateless, that allows to initialize and control the $scope object.

  • HTML Extension

Angular’s HTML Compiler allows us to manipulate the page HTML like XML, expanding our tag and attribute capabilities. This is achieved through the use of directives to trigger behaviors based on the newly-created syntax. This gives us a clearer page semantics without overloading our pages with heaps of div tags and removes the need to create tons of unnecessary CSS classes to define the properties of each particular object.

  • HTML Templating

Also easy to use Angular’s templating engine is very much akin to simple HTML in its syntax. It parses the DOM for the templates which are then interpreted by the compiler as DOM objects. That saves the need to create separate strings and allows using DOM components directly.

  • Testing excellence

AngularJS has no need for a separate testing plugin or framework as it comes with its native API for unit testing – Scenario Runner. That allows us to test our apps in any stage of production, ensuring best possible quality for our clients.

 4. Faster loading websites

Client satisfaction is always on our minds when working on new projects so having a framework enabling users to load what can seem like many pages into one page is really beneficial. It can result in a responsive and snappy site which makes the user’s experience great and leads to better business for our clients.

5. Dependency Injection

Time to get technical now. We just couldn’t not mention this feature, quite fresh in the JavaScript realm, built-in into Angular it comes as a real benefit. To put it simply, it allows us to pass necessary resources onto functions or classes instead of creating them on-demand. This allows us to set up libraries of services or providers and then intuitively use them whenever and wherever needed in our applications.

In conclusion

So in the end, it’s pretty obvious why we, a group of passionate developers, would love to work with a framework that’s solid throughout, easy to use and packs a mean punch of features that allow us to push our web development practices to the limit and deliver highly functional projects. If you’re looking to hire AngularJS developers, look no further, our team is ready to provide detailed consulting on your project idea.
