Angular.JS: The Best Hybrid Mobile App Framework For Cross-Platform Mobile App Development
Mobile applications have become the basic need of almost every business to scale and prosper. The idea of building mobile application come along with a lot of things that’s crucial to consider like- which platform, technology, framework, tools or platform one should prefer.
Nowadays, to get hold of large audience, instead of building native app development, businesses opt for the application that runs seamlessly on multiple platforms and multitude of devices. Here, cross-platform mobile app development comes into the picture.
Angular.JS, the open source framework that’s upgraded a few months back is powered with brilliant features that has even surpassed the developers’ expectations. It would be great if developers master it and businesses employ it to reap its exciting benefits.
Now, let’s take a look at the reasons why increasingly businesses and developers are ending their search on Angular.JS when it comes to cross platform mobile apps development:
1) The Best MVC Architecture:
MVC (Model view controller), the architecture enable developers to break the interface into three components- controller that work as input, model that’s logic code behind the application and view that’s the output shown to the user.
This splitting ease the customization of modules and so is the custom Angular.JS development. Developers just need to split the app into these components and then rest of the work like- component management and connection is done automatically.
2) Minimal Coding:
Angular.JS framework is designed to create the apps by writing less codes. In MVC model, the view is defined with the concise format of HTML and can be written without getters/setters. Even, the data on the view level can be manipulated using filters without needing to change the controllers.
Directives enable the creation of HTML elements and extend HTML on-the-fly. It gives a lot of control over the application in developer’s hand. Directives are easy to test, extend the UI and help in Dependency Injections controls.
4) POJO Data Models:
In Angular.JS, the data models are designed like plain objects that work as temporary repository to store the retrieving data. The data models do not require additional getter and setter functions to modify the properties. The data models and properties on objects are automatically tied to the view by Angular, so Angular can modify the properties and update view in an automated way.
Angular.JS is completely linked together by dependency injections (DI) that’s used to manage controller modules and data models. Angular.JS is endowed with unit test runner setup that access these DI by injecting mock data into controllers to usurp them.
