We all know the power of JavaScript as a technology to transform the web. Among all the JS frameworks Angular has already achieved the reputation of being the leading framework in terms of capabilities and features. Angular is also the framework behind the cross-platform Ionic platform and it has been used for developing many of the world’s most popular Web apps.

Some of the key features of Angular that made it an ideal technology for web development include the following. 

  • Angular supports MVC architecture (Model, View, and Controller) allowing a developer to divide an app into these components to help easy management by the framework. 
  • The platform offers “Two Way Data binding” feature that helps to reflect any change in the code in the model in real-time. 
  • Angular allows developers to use templates to make easy access to the information in between the model and controller.
  • Angular Directives that work as crucial elements actually help to boost the functions of HTML with the addition of new functional elements. 
  • In Angular, the expressions work much like the code snippets placed within the curly braces. This helps in getting free from the use of conditional statements or loops 
  • Angular also allows using the scope, a typical JavaScript object within the model that is capable to play an intermediary role for controlling the data flow between controller and view.
