Difference between Angular and AngularJS

Angular: It is a popular open-source JavaScript framework created by Google for developing web applications. Front-end developers use frameworks like Angular or React for presenting and manipulating data efficiently. Updated Angular is much more efficient compared to the older version of Angular, especially core functionality was moved to different modules. That’s why it becomes so much fast and smooth compare to the older one. Newly added angular CLI. With that package, you can create scaffolding of your Angular project

Angular JS: AngularJs is a Javascript open-source front-end framework that is mainly used to develop single-page web applications(SPAs). It is a continuously growing and expanding framework which provides better ways for developing web applications. It changes the static HTML to dynamic HTML. It’s features like dynamic binding and dependency injection eliminates the need for code that we have to write otherwise.AngularJs is rapidly growing and because of this reason, we have different versions of AngularJs with the latest stable being 1.7.7. It is also important to note that Angular is different from AngularJs. It is an open-source project which can be freely used and changed by anyone. It extends HTML attributes with Directives, and data is bound with HTML.

    Comparison between Angular and AngularJS:

  • Architecture:

    Angular JS: Supports Model-View-Controller design. The view processes the information available in the model to generate the output.
    Angular: Uses components and directives. Components are the directives with a template.

  • Written:

    Angular JS: Written in JavaScript.
    Angular: Written in Microsoft’s TypeScript language, which is a superset of ECMAScript 6 (ES6).

  • Mobile support:

    Angular JS: Does not supported by mobile browsers.
    Angular: But Angular supported by all the popular mobile browsers.

  • Expression Syntax:

    Angular JS:Particular syntax is used to bind data from view to model and vice versa.
    Angular: Properties enclosed in “()” and “[]” are used to bind data b/w view and model.

  • Dependency Injection:

    Angular JS: Does not use Dependency Injection.
    Angular: Hierarchical Dependency Injection system used.

  • Routing:

    Angular JS: AngularJS uses $routeprovider.when() for routing configuration.
    Angular: Angular uses @Route Config{(…)} for routing configuration.

  • Structure:

    Angular JS: It is less manageable in comparison to Angular.
    Angular: Better structure compare to AngularJS, easier to create and maintain large applications but behind in AngularJS in case of small applications.

Note: Angular is a great framework it has many improvements in terms of AngularJS, it is good at bigger application also good at smaller application, but there is a huge competition between Angular and AngularJS.
