Angular Web Applications

For most conventional websites, entire pages are loaded and reloaded continuously which cause a slowdown, resulting in frustrating user experience and unnecessary strain on the server. Single Page Applications, however, quickly solve this problem by only loading small entities of a webpage at a time. They do it by decreasing the server load and increasing the site speed for better user experience.

Developed by Angular Team that was created by Google, Angular is a powerful JavaScript framework for building dynamic client-facing web applications. The great thing about Angular is that it has a set of ready-to-use modules to simplify the building of single page applications (SPAs). This entirely re-written JavaScript framework has now evolved and works even better.

JavaScript Frameworks – AngularJS vs Ext JS

A Single Page Application (SPA) is a web application used to create fast, responsive, and easy-to-maintain websites. SPAs are basically the web applications that load a single HTML page and dynamically update that page as the user interacts with the application.

Single Page Applications load a single file and then build on that singular file as the user traverses through the app. These applications use AJAX and HTML5 to create fluid and responsive web apps without constant page reload. However, this means much of the work happens on the client-side i.e. in JavaScript. Let’s take a look at some of the benefits of using Single Page Apps.

  • The first benefit is eliminating that annoying page change when you click on a link. In a Single Page Application, the controls of the navigation and main interface typically stay on the page when you click a link; only the piece of content you are looking for gets changed.
  • The second benefit is the benefit of the speed boost that you get from a lighter server response payload for the chunk of content versus an entire page. The lighter payload transfers across the network faster and the browser can incorporate the new piece of content quickly rather than redrawing an entirely new page.
  • The third benefit allows Angular to extend the HTML by providing directives that add functionality to your markup and enable you to create powerful dynamic templates. You can also create your own directives by creating reusable components that fill your needs and abstract away all the DOM manipulation logic.

Angular is a time-tested tool which makes building applications super easy. Not just that, Angular empowers the developers to build applications that live well on desktop or mobile.
