Cross-browser web applications built using Angular are user-friendly and interactive. It significantly reduces the coding part as compared to other frameworks. A single code set for one application and your task is done. Also, less coding means reduced chances of error.
Angular is used to build SPAs (single page applications)
By SPA we mean that the server only host the index.html file (the single page), then we load different pages via AJAX on client-side and render it (this is called Routing). Angular follows MVC (model-view-controller) design so that the code is more modular.
The server only deals with providing data from database via REST APIs so it also performs fast because it is not overloaded by the task of rendering pages.
This makes the task of the Backend Developer easier and the FrontEnd Developer gets more control over the website. Due to this the app can be built in lesser time.
Advantages of a Single-Page Application
- SPA is fast, as most resources (HTML+CSS+Scripts) are only loaded once throughout the lifespan of application. Only data is transmitted back and forth.
- The development is simplified and streamlined. There is no need to write code to render pages on the server.
- SPAs are easy to debug with Chrome, as you can monitor network operations, investigate page elements and data associated with it.
- It’s easier to make a mobile application because the developer can reuse the same backend code for web application and native mobile application.
- SPA can cache any local storage effectively. An application sends only one request, stores all data, then it can use this data and works even offline.
