Angular SPAs

Single-Page Applications are the standard for responsive web applications.

Angular is a popular front-end framework for single-page applications and is maintained by Google. It is an ideal framework for creating responsive web applications for devices from desktop computers to mobile phones. It brings structure and consistency to web development and allows for scalable and maintainable applications. It is an opinionated framework that allows for new developers from within or outside of an organization to more quickly understand the codebase. Many Fortune 500 companies, such as General Motors, HBO, Nike, and others leverage Angular. It can scale from single-developer projects to enterprise-scope applications. It is utilized by a highly diverse group of nearly two million software developers.

Angular Advantages

  • Angular provides tools and design patterns to build your project in a maintainable way. A properly crafted Angular application, which is easier to achieve than in other frameworks and libraries, mitigates a tangle of classes and methods that are difficult to modify and test. The code is structured in a way that makes it easy to understand and modify.
  • Angular is built with TypeScript, which is a superset of JavaScript. This provides features like static typing, interfaces, classes, namespaces, decorators etc. that do not exist in standard JavaScript.
  • Angular includes tools to start crafting the application right away. You have directives to give HTML elements dynamic behavior. You can power up the forms using FormControl and introduce various validation rules. You may easily send asynchronous HTTP requests of various types. You can set up routing with little hassle. And there are many more goodies that Angular can offer us!
  • Components are decoupled. Angular strived to remove tight coupling between various components of the application. All DOM manipulation happens where it should happen. With Angular, you don’t tightly couple presentation and the application’s logic making your markup much cleaner and simpler.
  • Testing is at the heart. Angular is meant to be thoroughly tested and it supports both unit and end-to-end testing with tools like Jasmine and Protractor. Angular is mobile and desktop-ready, meaning you have one framework for multiple platforms.
  • Angular is actively maintained and has a large community and ecosystem. You can find lots of materials on this framework as well as many useful third-party tools.
