The mobile and web app development space is competitive, with a world of tools and solutions that promise to enable the development of high-quality apps. So, when there is a name that figures among the top choices despite the competition, you know there is quality. And one such name is Angular, but the one challenge with this one is deciding if you want to go with Angular or AngularJS. What further compounds this challenging decision is the fact that the market seems to be divided equally among the two. But when you look closely, you will see that Angular is the more beneficial between the two. Listed below are some of the most crucial differences between the two to help you understand why.

  1. Architecture: While AngularJS involves axiomatic model pipelines, with Angular, you get an updated iteration of the architecture and structure. That, in turn, renders the process of developing and maintaining great apps much simpler.
  2. Expression syntax: When working on the AngularJS-based app, coders are required to remember the precise ng directive to bind an event or property successfully. On the other hand, Angular is very intuitive and doesn't involve such hassles.
  3. Dependency injection: Even though both of them get this feature, in Angular, you get the non-hierarchic system.

But if you are still not convinced about making the switch from AngularJS to Angular, allow us to walk you through a handful of very compelling reasons.

  • Substantially better performance: One of the most important reasons for transitioning to Angular is the nearly 5x gain in return. It helps reduce the bundle size and also delivers substantially better run-time performance. Extensive features: With Angular, you get features such as the command-line interpreter to help build pretty much whatever you want. Then there is also the NG, ability to create multiple modules, differential loading, and so much more. Differential loading is one of Angular's biggest USP since it facilitates the development of two types of builds for ES5 as well as ES6.
  • High-quality components: Yet another vital advantage of Angular is that the plus iterations are written with TypeScript that, in turn, is JavaScript's superordinate. We will save the technical details of that statement for later; the point is that this enables programmers to cut down the number of run-time errors before proceeding with the transpiring process. And let us not forget the modules, which help programmers to organize individual codes following their utility and function. And you know what that helps with? Yep, with determining the location of components.

It is essential to know and understand that both Angular and AngularJS can be used to develop a quality app. Though, there are critical differences between the two, some of which have been listed above to help you make the final call. A careful evaluation of both offerings against your requirements will help you decide if you need custom AngularJS development services or a provider for Angular.
