Posted in Web Development

Angular JS is a well known and widely used open-source JavaScript framework. It was accepted by the entire industry because it improved the HTML in web applications, creating a smoother and simpler experience for developers and designers. Yet, there were still areas in the framework that could be further developed to meet the demands of the changing online industry. And Angular JS 2.0, its latest version, has taken care of all the concerns that were raised. Now it's better equipped for mobile application development and serves faster browsers more efficiently apart from performing many new functions. GR Imagine's coding & technical team gives you a low-down on all the key benefits you can take advantage of.

New version for newer browsers
With faster and more modern browsers like IE10/11, Firefox, Safari Chrome and iOS6, FireFox etc. on mobile, it is imperative that Angular JS 2.0 can support and be compatible with each of their advanced features. The newly added functions will end up simplifying the Angular JS app development and help developers create a more robust and consistent application across devices.

Mobile First
Although mobile app development was a major factor of consideration when creating Angular JS, its newer version has taken it to another level so that the needs of the mobile world are understood and fulfilled. Functions like low memory usage, mobile touch support are essential in designing anything for mobile, and Angular JS 2.0 doesn't disappoint. Due to these improvements, cross-platform development becomes easier and more cohesive.

Catching up with the Web
The web is constantly evolving. Browsers add components and other extensions to make themselves faster and more efficient. For instance, even though the earlier version of Angular JS was practical and up-to-date for the web and mobile browsers around the time it was first launched, the browsers began improving themselves and bringing in new web components like HTML imports and shadow DOM amongst many others. Now Angular JS 2.0 supports these elements giving developers flexibility to design more updated and effective code. In fact, the foundation of Angular JS 2.0 is now component based.

Developer-friendly
Angular JS was created keeping designers in mind more than developers. However, the latest version gives developers enough support, so that they can deliver code efficiently and quickly. It displays unbeatable performance when it comes to browser rendering, animation or testing. It allows a developer to code faster, test better and add components. One can regularly check the code and sort it during development, making the task easier and more organized.

Greater acceptance from the industry
Whoever has worked with Angular JS in the past, knows that it isn't the most easily understood. One has to know its core technicalities in order to fully enjoy all the functions. Once you know the core features you can use it to your full advantage. Angular JS 2.0 understands this minor drawback and has encouraged productivity through cleaner syntax. It has been developed with the support of ECMAScript 6 Standardization and built on TypeScript.

Smarter Dependency Injection
Dependency Injection or DI is what differentiates Angular JS from its competitor frameworks. The power of DI, helps coders minimise the code length by reducing the need to write tedious code. Angular JS 2.0 now supports a smarter DI by resolving issues related to minification or features that were common to other frameworks.

More flexible routing
Angular JS 2.0 now quickly delivers automatic code splitting allowing developers to see their code in the view they want. It also offers child and sibling states as well as nested states and sibling views contributing to greater flexibility for developers.

Angular JS has always been a formidable framework to code in and its newest version just makes it unbeatable for its competitors. GR Imagine regularly codes with Angular JS 2.0 to get faster results for their clients.
