Difference between NodeJS and AngularJS

Angular JS is an open source web application development framework developed by Google. It provides support for developing dynamic and single page web applications. 

Node.JS is a cross-platform runtime environment for running JavaScript applications outside the browser. It offers a rich library of various JavaScript modules that can simplify coding. 


Angular JS Node.JS
It is a structural framework for developing dynamic web apps. It is a cross-platform run-time environment for applications written in JavaScript language.
It is entirely written in JavaScript. It is written in C, C++ and JavaScript.
It is used to build single-page client-side applications. It is used to build fast, scalable server-side and client-side networking applications.
Ideal for developing highly active and interactive web apps. Ideal for developing small size projects.
The developer only need to add the AngularJS file to use it in his application. The developer need to install the NodeJS on his computer system.
Models and views in AngularJS are much simpler than what found in other JavaScript client-side frameworks. It uses the event driven nature of the JavaScript to support non blocking operations and that makes the platform efficient.
It is based on the model-view-controller design pattern and embraces that pattern completely. It is single threaded meaning the web requests and processed and run on the same thread.
AngularJS is a Web Framework. NodeJS provides different Web Frameworks like Socket.io, Hapi.js, Meteor.js, Express.js, and Sails.js
