What Is Angular

Angular is a JavaScript framework released in 2016.

  • It is component-oriented.
  • It is shipped with RxJS, the Reactive Programming library.
  • It works with TypeScript, a superset of EcmaScript 6, which allows a cleaner coding.
  • It provides a powerful CLI to build projects.

For these reasons it is a very good framework which is both powerful and easy to use.

Note

Angular was initially known as Angular 2 as AngularJS was its ancestor. Angular and AngularJS are very different.

Their names are quite close, when looking for packages, verify carefully which Angular it is compliant with.
