It is primarily related to creating Single Page Applications but it can be used to create any app because of its features like dependency injection, declarative user interface, etc. Since it is developed and maintained by Google engineers, it is an assured fact that you are stepping into a platform that is vast and wide and is enriched with skilled professionals.
Imagine that you are looking for a product of your need; be it anything from just a dress or a laptop or anything. Once a product that would match with your requirements comes into the market, it is an obvious fact that you would go and purchase it. Now that’s what happened in the case of AngularJS.
The web development world was fed up with the coding process that they had to go through while creating a web application. They have been in search of a framework that would help them overcome this burden that they were going through and it was then that AngularJS came into picture. So, just like how we would go buy a product that would fulfil our requirements, web developers also happily changed into AngularJS.
As of now, we have had a sneak peek as to why AngularJS is considered the best choice by the web developers. Now let’s have a clear look as to why it indeed is the final choice of the web developers. The foremost reason for this scenario is its extensibility with HTML, CSS, etc and its ability to work with Single page application.
Ø Wide range of tools:
There are a wide range of tools that AngularJS uses which helps the developers lessen to the burden. Grunt and Gulp are two tools that are mainly used for building servers in AngularJS. There is not much difference between the two and the only existing differences between these tools are in the way they configure their tasks and in the way they run their tasks.
Grunt is a tool that is based on configuration whereas Gulp is stream-based. Grunt mostly tries to run the processes in a sequential manner whereas Gulp runs them with maximum concurrency.
The prominently used tools for workflow management are Yeoman and Bower. Yeoman is a front-end telemechanics tool that which comprises of three main components: Yo, bower and grunt, which are used in improving the productivity while building a web application. One of the best features of Yeoman is its ability to use custom generators. Bower is yet another tool that helps in the process of workflow management.
The tools that help in testing process include Jasmine, Karma, Protractor, etc. Among all the tools that are used for testing for AngularJS development, Karma is considered as the favourite testing framework that provides the perfect testing environment. Protractor is an end-to-end test framework. The advantage of Jasmine is that it can be used anywhere that a Java script runs.
