Angular (commonly referred to as Angular 2+) is a TypeScript-based free app framework by the Angular Team used in UppLabs to develop single-page applications. Our team recommends using the Angular 2+ version and ensures the migration from Angular JS to newer versions.

A bit of Angular history

Angular is a framework developed by Google, mainly used to create complex SPA (Single Page) Internet programs using AJAX technology. Angular has come a long way since its appearance in 2009. The comprehensive capabilities of the framework make it one of the best tools for the rapid development of multifunctional and high-load applications. It has long won the recognition of the global developer community and has been chosen for its projects by such industry leaders as Google, PayPal, and Forbes.

What’s special about Angular?

Angular is built on TypeScript, which in turn relies on ES6. You don’t have to learn a whole new language, and you get features like static typing, interfaces, classes, namespaces, and more.

Angular already has many tools for creating an application. Thanks to the directives, HTML elements can behave dynamically. You can strengthen forms with FormControl and present various validation rules. You can easily send asynchronous HTTP requests of various types and configure routing.

Benefits of Angular:

  • fast code writing;
  • clean code;
  • the ability to reuse code;
  • regular updates;
  • quick testing of individual parts of the application;
  • two-way data binding that instantly reflects web page state changes in the user interface;
  • high performance;
  • simple templates;
  • good indexing in Google.

As for the downsides, Angular inherited the site indexing problem, which is typical of most JavaScript frameworks. The problem is that not all search bots can instantly process JavaScript code, and as a result, the site cannot get into the top search results.
