6 Reasons You Should Use Angular For Your Next Development Project

Technology  is one area where change is constant. To keep up, developers continuously strive to develop better versions of the software. Angular is regarded as one of the best UI plans that has steadily progressed in the past couple of decades.

Developed in 2009 by Google, Angular has been dominating the arena of open source JavaScript structure for a while now. Since its inception, this framework has gained huge traction among developers and enterprises. As per a recent survey, Angular is used by more than 44.3% of software engineers for creating user interfaces.

With Angular, developers can build dynamic and interactive single page  web applications using its wide features such as modularization, templating, dependency injection, AJAX handling, and RESTful API handling.  Users can employ HTML as template language and even extend its syntax to convey the application’s components easily.  There are multiple benefits to using Angular framework; a key benefit being that users need not have to depend on third-party libraries to develop apps with Angular.

In this article, I have explored other key reasons why you should use Angular for your projects:

Google Support

One key advantage of Angular framework is that it is supported by Google’s Long-Term Support (LTS). What this means is that Google plans to stick with it for a long term and will also continue to scale up the Angular ecosystem. This framework is used by Google apps and there is no question about its stability.

TypeScript

The applications in Angular are created using the TypeScript language. TypeScript, a superscript for JavaScript makes sure of the security as it is compatible with types including interfaces, primitives etc. With TypeScript, it is possible to identify and remove errors from the start when you are writing the code or executing maintenance tasks.

As opposed to Dart or CoffeeScript, TypeScript is not a stand-alone language. TypeScript enables the users to take the existing ES2015+ JS or ES5 code and will compile it down depending on your configuration. This language completely supports core ES2016/ES2017 and ES2015 features like async/await and decorators.

In case you have proper map files developed during build time,it is possible to directly debug TypeScript code in an editor or the browser. With typeScript, you can expect autocompletion services, refactoring, and improved navigation. There is also an option where you can opt out of the language’s inbuild features if required.

Declarative UI

Angular defines the UI of the application using HTML. In comparison to JavaScript, HTML is a less complicated language. It is also an intuitive and declarative language.

These features are a plus because with Angular you are not required to waste your time in determining how the programs flows and what had to load first. In Angular. you just have to define what you need and the framework will take care of it.

POJO

In Angular, users does not require any additional setter and getter functions. All the objects angular employs is POJO (Plain Old JavaScript Object) which  helps in manipulating objects by enabling all the usual JavaScript functionalities. Users have the option of adding or removing object properties and looping over them when needed.

Easy Testing

Testing is very simple in angular. It is easy to manipulate the application parts in angular.js. Users can load the required services with the help of module separation and also effectively perform automatic testing. If you follow the principle of  “one file-one module”, then you don’t have to even remember the module loading order.

Code Consistency

Code consistency is extremely important in code bases. Like with writing where inconsistency in content pieces can lead to reduced lead conversions, inconsistency in coding can enhance the danger of elevated costs or delayed launches.  On the other hand, consistent coding can translate to many perks such as enabling and making it easy to use  predefined snippets or templates.

The components which angular is based on begins in the same style. For example, each of the components defines a code @Component decorator (metadata) or places it in a component class. These components, which are small interface elements are independent of one another and can thus, provide you with many benefits such as:

  • Reusability 

    The components can be reused across the application as the structure of angular is component based. The UI(User Interface) can be built with moving parts. This also ensures that developers get a seamless development process.

  • Unit-Testing Made Simpler 

    As the components are distinct from each other, unit testing is easier.

  • Enhanced ReadabilityWhen the coding is consistent, it makes it easier for developers who are new to the program to read the code.As the components are distinct from each other, unit testing is easier.
  • Maintenance Made Easier 

    Components which are decoupled can be replaced with implementations much better than previous ones. What it means is that, it facilitates efficient code update and maintenance.
