If you are even vaguely familiar with the software development ecosystem, you know one of the most persistent debates has been about choosing between AngularJS and Angular. The confusion is understandable, especially since both are frameworks renowned for their ability to develop high-quality apps of all types, be it for web, desktops, or mobile. However, consider this: A sizable chunk of developers in the market uses different Angular versions to develop mobile and web apps. This demonstrates that the market is inclined towards Angular instead of AngularJS; this, in turn, boosts the argument for switching to Angular.

It makes sense too — after all, Angular offers significantly better scope for high levels of performance than AngularJS. Then there is also the fact that Angular’s architecture is based on a hierarchy of services and components. In contrast, AngularJS involves controllers that can be quite challenging to employ. And let’s not forget that AngularJS uses JavaScript. In contrast, Angular is a TypeScript framework, which enjoys significant popularity for its consistency and the agility it brings to the table. But now, let us look at some other key benefits of Angular to help you understand just how much more it brings to the table as compared to AngularJS.

  1. Improved performance: The thing about Angular is that the components aren’t too tightly integrated, which means when you make changes to one of them, it doesn’t affect the others. What does that mean for the app? Significantly better performance. Did we also mention the modular structure? It allows Angular to optimize web apps through lazy loading, which also boosts the app’s performance.
  2. Enhanced components: When you use Angular to build an app, you get the command-line interface that allows programmers to develop, maintain, etc., straight from a command shell. Then there is also the NG that serves to enable programmers to build components with primary files.
  3. Modules: Another key benefit gained from Angular’s modular structure is that programmers can organize the code into modules. This translates into the ability to sort out the app’s functionalities seamlessly and reuse chunks of code. As you can imagine, reusing code helps save both time and money. That’s not all — modules also allow companies to allocate tasks across different development teams without affecting the quality and the sanctity of the code.
  4. Flux architecture: Unlike AngularJS, which makes use of two-way data binding, Angular gets a flux architecture which involves leveraging unidirectional data flow to identify any changes. As a result, Angular-based apps are significantly faster and deliver much better performance as compared to the apps developed using AngularJS.

As you can see, Angular has just the right credentials to prove that it is a significantly better choice of framework for developing an app. So, suppose you too want to develop higher-quality apps. In that case, it is now time to speak to your vendor for AngularJS development services and kick off the transition to Angular ASAP.
