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 Support…

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.
