Bridging the Cultural & Communication Gap

Soon after the release of Angular 2 Beta, our team of AngularJS specialists found the syntax of the new version bit confusing, since it was a rewrite of the previous version. However, over time Angular 2 has evolved to such an extent that our team was highly impressed while they revisited it a few months ago. Modern enterprises are choosing Angular 2 over any other JavaScript framework for front end development. This is because everything within the framework including the high level architecture is backed by Google which enables standardization of large teams and helps bring everyone on the same page. Let us find out what makes our team of Angular experts so excited about it:

Why Enterprises are Banking on Angular 2 for Front End Development?

Components are the vital building blocks

When you begin to learn a framework, you should start with one of the most important building blocks, which in case of Angular 2 are components. Angular 1, on the other hand, had controllers and to create a custom element the knowledge of controllers, restrict, controller AS, and directives were prerequisites. This was sort of inappropriate, considering the importance of custom directives to the architecture of Angular apps. You needed to write a lot of code and understand to get to the substance of what exactly you were trying to achieve which, in fact, could be done in less code. Angular 2, whereas, with components as building blocks is quite easier to learn and use and generates almost twenty-five percent less code.

TypeScript makes it a pleasure to use

TypeScript, a superset of JavaScript, was used to rewrite Angular 2 and making this framework a pleasure to learn and use. This open-sourced programming language, maintained by Microsoft, allows the use of all ES2015 features and also adds robust type checking and object-oriented features. Although all browsers are not compatible with ES2015 yet, TypeScript compiles into JavaScript code which our browsers can understand. Using TypeScript features (like class decorators and type declarations) and ES2015 features (like fat arrow, import, export, backtick, etc.) adds the fun element to Angular 2 programming.

Data binding is next level

Angular 2 has invented a new syntax for coding especially in property and event binding which makes the framework even more pleasing. In Angular 1 you had to remember the right ng directive in order to bind an image as shown below:

Whereas, in Angular 2 you can just manage it with square brackets as below:
Just remember to wrap the DOM element property that you need to bind to, in square brackets, and it’s done. No need to consult the Angular documentation to look up for the proper ng directive.
