In the world of front-end web development, there are countless frameworks and libraries to choose from, Angular being one of them. Each developer has their own preferred way of working. However, when working in a team it’s best to agree on one or several platforms that everyone will use. At Marviq, we chose Angular as one of the main frameworks.
A unified framework makes it easier for our developers to collaborate and avoid inconsistencies. The entire team uses the same platform, which has the advantage of sharing our knowledge and experience. Using a common framework, makes it easier for us to collaborate and communicate. That, in turn, impacts the smooth and efficient development process.
At Marviq, we always make sure to use the most innovative and reliable technologies to provide our customers with the best possible products and services. That’s why we chose Angular, one of the most popular software development technologies.
Angular is a platform and framework for building single-page client applications using HTML and TypeScript. It is written in TypeScript and implements core and optional functions as a set of TypeScript libraries that you can import into your applications. Professional developers consider Angular the premier front-end tool due to its versatility, as they can use it to develop online, desktop, and mobile applications. Below are three reasons why Marviq loves Angular, as told by our developers.
1. Angular Modules: Clear code structure
In Angular, the code is divided into several modules. The modules are reusable and you can combine them with each other. Because of that, you can easily organize and maintain the code. Working with reusable modules means that the code structure is clear and developers can easily find any written part of the code. Additionally, modules and submodules also allow our developers to save time and space, as they allow sharing between projects.
2. Angular Components: Code reusability
One of the biggest advantages of the framework is its library of pre-built components such as buttons, dropdowns, spinners, and other tools and elements. You can modify them as needed and use in any application built with Angular. Thanks to the component-based structure you can also reuse components throughout the program. Developers can move pieces of code around like building blocks to create a UI while maintaining a seamless development process. As a result, using Angular components saves time and makes unit testing much easier.
3. Google support: Popularity and frequent updates
The Angular web application framework is led by the Angular team at Google and by a community of individuals and companies. Since its inception, it has been continuously updated and modified. Each new version adds new features and functionalities, such as stylistic improvements, standalone components, Strictly Typed Forms, Improved Template Diagnostics, making the framework even more versatile and user-friendly. Google’s support has undoubtedly had an impact on Angular’s popularity. Websites and software such as PayPal, Deutsche Bank, Gmail, Forbes, and Netflix are among the most well-known companies that use Angular in their development.
And many more…
There are many more reasons why Angular became one of the few main platforms we use. The framework offers a high degree of flexibility and scalability, both of which are essential for an ever-growing company like ours. In addition, the use of TypeScript makes it easier for our developers to catch bugs early and maintain code quality. Finally, it is a high-performance framework that can handle large amounts of data and a lot of traffic. All these arguments made the decision to use this framework an easy one.
