What is Angular?


Google's Angular 6 was released on May 4, 2018, six months after the release of its predecessor Angular 5. Major rewrites make it a significant upgrade. The new framework gives you the ability to reuse code to more easily build apps and transfer them across platforms. In this article, we will highlight some reasons why you should consider using the most recent version of Angular.

Simple Transition from AngularJS

While there are substantial changes from AngularJS to Angular, there are also many similarities. There is also the introduction of hybrid applications, which support code from AngularJS and Angular simultaneously, in order to allow for a gradual transition. This means the move for engineers and developers from AngularJS to Angular should be a fairly smooth process. You can read a breakdown of the transition process here.

Implementation of Typescript

Angular's use of TypeScript, an open-source programming language, makes tooling simpler. This is only a minor change from vanilla JavaScript, so the transition to Angular is a fairly smooth one. Additionally, the implementation of TypeScript means that refactoring is now easier. You also get the added benefit of IntelliSense, which is a code autocomplete feature.

Component-based Coding

Thanks to Angular's component-based structure, coding is no longer as tedious of a process. This structure facilitates convenient code reuse that cuts down on the time needed for rewriting code. This also results in more readable and sustainable code.

Increased Performance and Speed

Angular provides the advantages of handwritten code while simultaneously increasing the efficiency and productivity of your JavaScript systems. Apps developed through Angular have improved load times thanks to the built in automatic code-splitting that reduces the amount of code required.

Built-in Support System for More Reliability

As the creator of Angular, Google has also assumed responsibility for its maintenance. Given the history of AngularJS, there are some concerns about the reliability of this new version. Fortunately, there is still support for AngularJS, and the Angular update provides a needed boost to performance. Angular has also released a support schedule to ensure consistent maintenance and reliable performance. See it here.

What We Offer

Now that we have discussed some of the improvements made to Angular, here are some ways that we can help you make the most of the latest version.

Development Across Platforms with Angular

We can offer you all the variants across any platform. We can use progressive web apps (PWAs) to bring an app-like experience to your browser, build native mobile apps with Cordova, Ionic, or NativeScript, and create desktop-installed apps on major operating systems including Windows, Mac, and Linux.

Create Using Enterprise Angular Application

While smaller apps are easy to create in Angular, larger ones can result in various performance issues and problems with scalability. We offer development using the methods of organization and design familiar to you from other projects.

Upgrade to Angular 6

The highlights of the sixth version include the command line interface (CLI) for increased productivity, the Angular Component Dev Kit (CDK), the Angular Material updater tool, version 4 of the Webpack module bundler, and smaller modules thanks to the scope hosting technique. Overall, the latest version gives you increased speed and performance through easy-to-use tooling.
