According to Google trends, AngularJS performed better at the start of 2016 but observing the graphs these two frameworks are competing very closely and that's why we have introduced this topic which framework is better for single page application development.
It is scripting language/Prototype based language mainly used in a web application but nowadays we can use it in an embedded application, server side etc.
The major difference between both are as
Now, let's talk about the difference between AngularJs vs Node.js.
It helps the user in adding dynamic views in their web application and is integrated with Model-View-Whatever (MVW) architecture and components, with the help of which, it has gained the position of the most preferred framework for the creation of data-driven apps and interactive web applications.
Features Of AngularJS
AngularJS provides with a smooth Model View Control Architecture which is also very dynamic in nature.
As we know any application is build up from combining different modules together. These modules work with different logics. These are initialized differently from each other. But still, these modules are connected with each other by some logic. The developers have to build all the components separately and then have to combine them together with some code and applied logic to fix them in a single application. This, of course, is an overhead for the developers while using an MVC Framework.
MVC makes it easier for developers to build the client side web application. All the MVC elements which are developed separately are combined automatically using AngularJS Framework. There is no need for developers to write extra code to fit all the elements together. It allows you to put MVC element separately and automatically sets them together accordingly.
Easy to use
Decouples DOM manipulation from any application logic, and that makes it an easy to use framework.It is a panacea for single-page applications (SPA). Comes with many useful features like directives, filters, and automatic data bindings, by which developers do not need to write complex codes for simple features. So, the codes become more optimize.
It is blessed with an MVW (Model-View-Whatever) architecture and is capable of supporting other patterns too like Model-View-Controller or Model-View-View Mode. The view modifies and manipulates the DOM to update the data and the behavior. But with the use of AngularJS development, the DOM manipulation is the task of the directives and not the view.
Uses of AngularJS
- Manages state of models
- Integrates with other UI tools
- Manipulates DOM
- Allows writing custom HTML codes
Features Of Node.Js
You can scale your Node.js application by using two ways – Horizontal Scaling and Vertical Scaling, which helps you to improve your application performance.
It supports unit testing out of the box. You can use any JS unit testing frameworks like Jasmin to test your Node.js code.
Node.js has some built-in API which helps you to create different types of Server like HTTP Server, DNS Server, TCP Server etc.
Node.js is open source, so it’s free to use and no need to pay for the license and you can extend it as per your need.
Uses of Node.js
- It serves the web
- It can be considered as a lightweight server which can serve client requests in a more simpler way than java does
- It performs communication operation with databases, web-sockets, middleware etc.
This is a huge gain for developers since they can focus on learning only one language and be MEAN-stack developers.
