Three Ways AngularJS Improves Apps
Developing an application''s user interface (UI) requires a deep understanding of the applications'' purpose and function. Developers and designers combine that understanding with development tools that optimize the user experience (UX) for both app owner and app user.
The app owner has expectations: to sell a product, to inform a potential customer, to entertain a customer, to bring the customer back to the app and to track the customer''s experience. All of this data needs to be accessible to the app''s owner on the back-end of the app.
The app user has expectations: an intuitive and easy to use interface, entertainment, information and an enjoyable experience, one that they are looking forward to returning to. All of this happens on the front-end of the app.
Enter AngularJS, a Java based language that powers single page applications and functions on both the front and the back-ends of an app. Here are three ways this cross-end functionality improves apps for developers, owners and users.
FOR DESIGNERS AND DEVELOPERS
Part of the MEAN stack, AngularJS is a realistic programming language with the flexibility to support dynamic user-interfaces and connect software components.
AngularJS'' learning curve is less steep than LAMP-based programs because Java runs across the entire MEAN stack. Additionally, many developers find the format less restrictive than that of relational based programs.
FOR APP OWNERS
AngularJS, along with the MongoDB database platform, functions at both the back-end and front-end. Not only does this cut down on server space but it also makes it possible for the app owner, or client, to make changes and upgrades to the app. According to Infoworld:
On the client, AngularJS provides a clean way of adding interactive functions and AJAX-driven rich components. Put them all together and they make a clean, coherent mechanism for moving data from user to disk farm and back again.
FOR APP USERS
AngularJS powers single page applications. This structure benefits the user by making most elements of the app easily accessible. Long-scrolling pages are useful for hand-held devices and they minimize the need for clicks or loading new pages.
Developers have noted that AngularJS and Node.js offer quicker response times than other platforms, which also improves the mobile user experience.
