In this blog, we will discuss Angular Features.

Angular Features:-

Features of Angular come into the picture for the front-end development of the application. In the minimum time, it becomes very popular and it is the best single-page web application development solution. One of the main differences between angular JS and their latest version is TypeScript and the very well structure of angular projects which makes maintaining code easy, readable, increased performance, and many more things.


Till now many versions of angular have come. Angular JS is the first version of angular and it was launched in the year 2009.

Features of Angular JS:-

  • Form validation and Animation.
  • It is a JavaScript framework to build Web Applications.
  • It allows easy event Handling
  • Dependencies Injection.
  • Built-in routing and Engine.
  • Support for Data Binding.
  • Extends HTML support by adding expression, tags, and Attributes.

After angular js, angular 2 comes into the picture with a completely distinctive framework written in typescript. There is no commonality between both frameworks. Due to this fact, angular 2 is very well established. Strong guide for the external library and plenty of greater things. It offers excessive overall performance to our software as a consequence it minimizes the burden time of our pages.

Features of Angular 2:-

Below are the features of Angular 2:

  • TypeScript:-
  1. It is a superset of javascript and angular 2 heavily uses typescript. Typescript has got several interests because of its ease of use and ease. This is the maximum putting change that angular 2 brings in comparison to the preceding version. Reactjs is also used typescript, due to this transformation angular 2 has were given lots of recognition in less time.
  2. Typescript is an open-supply programming language that is evolved and maintained with the aid of Microsoft. It provides elective static typing to the language. As it's far the superset of javascript so present javascript packages also are valid.
  • Improved Dependency Injection:-
  1. It is a design pattern that we should have to make our application loosely coupled. Modular component isolation and development are the features that make the dependency injection easy and simple to use and implement in angular2.
  2. In angular 2 services are injectable. For this, we use @Injectable annotation to make any class injectable.

Example: Services is an example of a Dependency injection. It is an injectable class that is used to share data among various classes of applications. It is also responsible to make the server call and get data to display.

  • Improved Data Binding:-

Data binding in angular 2 has improved a lot. We do not need to write a heavy code for this we just need to wrap our element inside a square bracket.

Types of binding:-

Below are the types of binding:

  1. Interpolation: It is used to display a component property to a template or view. For this, we use double curly braces. We can display anything using this i.e. string, number, array, etc.
  2. Property Binding: Property binding allows us to directly access the element property of HTML. We can directly assign our variable to the HTML element.
  3. Event Binding: This binding uses the event to bind value. We have various events available for instance click.
  4. Two-way Binding: This is a combination of property binding and event binding. In which we can simultaneously call our method and bind value to the element property.
  • Directives:-

Angular 2 provides support for 3 types of directives. Which are as follows :

  1. Attribute Directive: It modifies the behavior or appearance of the HTML element.
  2. Structural Directive: This Directive is used to change the structure of the element. It alters the DOM element, by using this we can add, delete and replace the element with a new element. It modified the DOM layout.
  3. Component Directive: We cannot create angular2 applications without components. Now we can have a closer look at how this component work and what type of metadata it contains.
  4. Performance: The performance of the angular 2 application has improved a lot because of fast change detection and offline compilation. support for asynchronous templating and dynamic loading helps in improving the page load and time.
  5. Support for a Component-Based Architecture: Angular 2 application is completely based on components. It follows component bases architecture. Which makes our code structure easier.
  • Improved Routing:-

Routing in angular 2 has been improved a lot because of the following reason:

  1. Location service
  2. Navigational Model
  3. URL resolver etc
  • Browser Support:-

Angular 2 application supports almost all browsers which are as follows:

  1. Chrome
  2. IE 9, 10 ,11
  3. Safari
  4. Firefox
  5. Android 4.1
  6. Microsoft edge
  • Cross-Platform:-

We can run our application on any platform such as:

  1. Android
  2. Ios systems
  3. Desktop
  • Mobile Development:-

The previous version of angular was meant for responsive development, but there was not any mobile support. But angular 2 provides us build-in support for mobile application development, on the other hand, need to take advantage of some libraries to run our angular js application on mobile.

  1. Component-based architecture.
  2. Equally useful for the web. mobile and desktop app.
  3. Support Dependency Injection.
  4. Faster, modern, and highly scalable framework.
  • Features of Angular 4:-

After angular 2, angular 4 comes into the picture with a few new features.

  1. Support for email validator
  2. Separate package for animation. Animation moved to new package @angular/animation
  3. Support for if/else statement
  4. Reduced size of generated bundled code up to 60%
  • Features of Angular 5:-

Angular 5 comes up with new improvements which are as follows :

  1. Update to the HTTP client.
  2. Type checking in the template.
  3. Make AOT the default.
  4. Support for Internationalized date m currency and number pipes.
  5. Zone speed improvements.
  6. easier to build progressive web pages.
