Introduction to AngularJS

Angular JS |

AngularJS is a Javascript open-source front-end structural framework that is mainly used to develop single-page web applications(SPAs). It is a continuously growing and expanding framework which provides better ways for developing web applications. It changes the static HTML to dynamic HTML. Its features like dynamic binding and dependency injection eliminate the need for code that we have to write otherwise. AngularJS is rapidly growing and because of this reason, we have different versions of AngularJS with the latest stable being 1.7.9. It is also important to note that Angular is different from AngularJS. It is an open-source project which can be freely used and changed by anyone. It extends HTML attributes with Directives, and data is bound with HTML.

History of AngularJS: AngularJS was originally developed in 2008-2009 by Miško Hevery and Adam abrons at Brat Tech LLC, as software for the online JSON storage service, in order to ease to development of the applications for the enterprise, that has been valued by the megabyte. It is now maintained by Google. AngularJS was released with version 1.6, which contains the component-based application architecture concept. This release version removed the Sandbox, which facilitates the security, despite having the various vulnerabilities that have evolved, which bypassed the sandbox.

Why use AngularJS?

  • Easy to work with: All you need to know to work with AngularJS is the basics of HTML, CSS, and Javascript, not necessary to be an expert in these technologies.
  • Time-saving: AngularJs allows us to work with components and hence we can use them again which saves time and unnecessary code.
  • Ready to use a template: AngularJs is mainly plain HTML, and it mainly makes use of the plain HTML template and passes it to the DOM and then the AngularJS compiler. It traverses the templates and then they are ready to use.
