What exactly is AngularJS?

AngularJS is a JavaScript  framework used for creating single page web applications. AngularJS lets you extend HTML vocabulary for your applications. The result is an expressive, readable and quick to develop environment. AngularJS is a very popular tool in the market. Some of the most frequented websites such as Youtube, Amazon, Forbes and Prezi are built with this software.

Why is AngularJS so popular?

AngularJS allows you to create applications in a faster and more efficient way. Using it effectively cuts development time in half versus building an application from scratch without it. One its best features is the versatile templating engine, which allows you to write HTML templates with special tags. Additionally, AngularJS is backed by Google, which means it is regularly improved and is well documented.

How does AngularJS work?

AngularJS provides a framework, so instead of writing code freely, you can streamline the way you write your applications by following a set standard. This allows you to take advantage of the framework’s built-in features such as templating, filter, two-way data binding and more.

AngularJS helps create single page applications so that, regardless of the size of your application, the browser will load a single page. Any additional content will also be loaded to the page as needed. Most users won’t be able to tell the difference and, in many cases, it loads faster since it only loads the content that is needed instead of the whole page.
