It has powerful features like directives, data binding, scope management, API client, I18N Filters, routing and more which help in building complex and comprehensive single-page applications.
Apart from already existing features, the framework also provides support to create custom features as required.
Angular has a rich feature set, which means that once we integrate Angular into developing an application we would hardly need to use another plugin or package.
This helps save time and money which would otherwise need to be invested in integrating a third-party plugin or package.
Angular supports bidirectional data binding between the model and the view. It means that any updates to the view are automatically updated in the model and vice versa.
One of the most attractive features of Angular is that it is unit testing and end-to-end testing ready. The MVC architectural pattern followed in Angular also helps in decoupling different aspects of the project.
This helps in building thoroughly-tested enterprise-level applications that are highly robust and easily maintainable.
Angular comes with an inbuilt dependency injection mechanism. This feature promotes writing more maintainable code by decoupling objects from their implementations.
Angular provides a lazyload module that can perform lazy loading, and it can be set to load only the necessary files. It is actually a mechanism for loading modules called at the time of routing, not at the time of application startup.
This reduces the amount of content that is loaded first and can be expected to speed up the loading of the initial page.
Angular 8 introduced Featuring Differential loading for all application code, Dynamic imports for lazy routes, Web workers, TypeScript 3.4 support, and Angular Ivy as an opt-in preview. Later on Version 9, Angular moved all applications to use the Ivy compiler and runtime.
There is a large number of libraries available in Angular, allowing you to freely expand the functions. Additional libraries are not required. Using Angular we can develop high performance, interactive, and offline Progressive Web Applications.
Angular uses RxJS to handle asynchronous processing and events flexibly. It combines the features of observer patterns, iterator patterns, and functional programming.
RxJS also handles events such as continuous data stream, mapping processes, filtering, splitting, combining, etc.
Below are some of the additional benefits of Angular:
- Code Consistency
- Modular development structure
- Simplified Unit-Testing
- Improved Readability
- Ease of Maintenance
