Angular JS 2.0 Product re-engineering TypeScript AngularJS 1.x

Based on the new creativities and innovations, lot of parameters have reformed the frontend world. Programming languages, newer versions and frameworks have enabled the applications to move from backend to frontend with data being delegated from backend using a simple API. Mobile is also considered as an important entity driving the frontend. Hence, with these evolving frontend technologies, enterprises also need to re-engineer their existing applications and products. The objective of the frontend innovation is to quickly identify the customer needs and implement it using full-featured attractive UI.

Tech giants like Google, Facebook and Microsoft are constantly contributing to create compelling frontend technologies. AngularJS is one such open source framework launched by Google in 2010. It being flexible and modular allows absolute frontend development with simplified testing. No doubt AngularJS 1.x is highly systematic and reliable, the latest version AngularJS 2.0 is much more powerful. It’s not only the same name with an advanced version, but instead a complete re-write of the entire framework.

It’s highly evident, lots of developers have already made themselves comfortable with AngularJS 1.x and might be upset with this drastic revolution. But AngularJS 2.0 being on the verge, it’s extremely necessary to upgrade the advancing technology. Embracing the progressive technology will allow us to innovate and build better things. Industry experts believe that AngularJS 2.0 will technically and strategically impact the frontend world and hence, it is essential to plan an early migration.

Following are few listed benefits of AngularJS 2.0 which will allow to re-engineer your application.

  • AngularJS 2.0 is streamlined and component based
    The AngularJS 2.0 framework is much simpler as compared to AngularJS 1.x. It has very few concepts which allows the developers to focus on building JavaScript classes. AngularJS 2.0 is more of a component based programming unlike AngularJS 1.x. The directives and controllers have been replaced with components which makes it more streamlined.

  • Mobile friendly
    Although AngularJS 1.x was developed considering mobile, it was mainly used for developing mobile apps and also had performance issues. AngularJS 2.0 has been designed according to the mobile architecture. It facilitates an optimized memory efficiency with improved performance of the CPU. It provides support for touch functionalities across all the mobile devices.

  • TypeScript
    TypeScript developed by Microsoft, allows optional type checking. TypeScript being open source, is a kind of JavaScript which can be compiled into JavaScript and identifies types and classes. TypeScript also follows object oriented pattern like inheritance. Hence, TypeScript being heavily used in AngularJS 2.0 enables other libraries and interfaces to easily incorporate with AngularJS 2.0.

AngularJS 2.0 offers lots of amazing features and improvements. It is a brand new framework which does not provide compatibility with AngularJS 1.x. Using AngularJS 2.0 one can easily incorporate all the JavaScript libraries along with newly created components and directives. AngularJS 2.0 is going to change the frontend world completely and is much faster and lighter than the former AngularJS 1.x version.

In this ever-changing technology world, enterprises should be able to embrace changing frontend technologies which also includes above mentioned AngularJS framework. It’s never too late to start and leverage AngularJS 2.0 for your advantage that makes the application development simple and powerful.
