The differences between Angular 4 and AngularJS

It was the year 2016 when Angular first appeared in the world of web development. Angular was developed and still maintained by Angular team at Google. AngularJS and Angular 4 are different but very much similar frameworks. Angular framework is the ground- up rewritten framework of AngularJS. Just to bring some light for those of you who do not understand the major differences between two, here are some examples:

  • The concept of “scope” or controllers are not in use, instead hierarchy of components as a main architectural concept.
  • For modern browsers only: browser compatibility workarounds.
  • Mobile development only: Mobile performance are handled first making the desktop development much easier.

 

There are some differences between Angular 4 and AngularJS. However, if you are curious person like me and want to find out a bit more about the major differences, please read the full list here.

 

Since its origin, Angular 4 has attained a series of milestones with each update. These transformations have changed the face of Web Development altogether. In the current date, Angular 4 has  customized features, that meet the requirements of the modern world currently dominated by the mobile users.

 

Angular 4 Functionality

 

A lot has changed for the past years when it comes to web development. This changes do not come alone only for the user interface. Today in the fast growing mobile market, everything needs to be fast and super user friendly with intuitive design. Of course all of this would not be possible to achieve with the old HTML and JavaScript alone.

As you know there are thousands of different mobile devices. These devices support different mobile OS. Of course, to make the story even harder. Each device will most likely have different browsers.

Speed and Performance

Achieving the maximum speed and performance is not only crucial when it comes to SEO. It is the whole thing starting from on server-side, web browsers and devices, end users.

Absolutely nobody, would like to wait more than 4 seconds for a webpage or an app to load. 4 seconds is actually a lot when it comes to loading a page. There is actually a lot going on behind the scenes.

Angular 4 is incredible when it comes to template. This makes the development process really easy and convenient. The templates allowing you to edit and extend the templates with your own components in any time. This gives you more time to focus on building better apps rather making something work.

The point is back in the days all developers struggled to make things work wasting valuable time and resources getting only one component work. Angular 4 has solved this major issue for many developers to come.
