Angular is an open source front-end web application platform written
in TypeScript. It is a complete rewrite of AngularJS and refers to any
version from 2 and above.
Its architectural characteristics are based on components arranged
hierarchically and it allows you to define navigation paths among views
through providing the Router service. An Angular app is built from a set
of NgModules that organise related code into functional sets, compared
to AngularJS the core functionality has shifted to modules.
Another notable difference is that it has a shifted expression syntax compared to AngularJS. The system uses “[ ]” for property binding (allowing the app to respond to user input in the target environment) and “( )” for event binding (where values calculated from your app data can be inserted into the HTML) .
Version 2.0 was released in 2016, the announcements about the changes
to the software caused controversy among developers as it moved from
Alpha to Developer Preview and then to Beta. Version 4.0 was released
the same year, skipping 3 to avoid any potential confusion, and is
backward compatible with Angular2. Significant improvements were made
for version 5 such as support for progressive web apps, it also included
a build optimiser and features related to Material Design. Version 6
released in 2018 showcased noteworthy improvements focusing on making
the toolchain more efficient instead of concentrating on the basic
framework, for example: ng update, ng add, Angular Elements, Library
Our development teams have used Angular on a number of projects in the past and would be happy to discuss any potential projects you have in mind for the platform.
Do you have a project built on this system that you’d like to migrate to another platform? Or do you have something you’d like moved over to this system? Check out our list of migrations for more details about how we work.
