Have you started using Angular 2? Angular 2 is the upgraded version of AngularJS 1.0, which Google acquired and maintained in 2009. If you are wondering whether you should migrate to this platform or not don’t worry we are here to help you. Here are few good reasons why you should start considering Angular 2 (developed by Google) for your application development needs. We are just listing some of the benefits of AngularJS 2.0 and there is certainly more to what we have discussed.

Agile platform – If you have been looking for a more agile platform then here it is. The codebase is lot easier to handle because it is lighter than the previous version. The compactness of the codebase contributes towards the agility of the platform. The emphasis has shifted to accommodating the latest browsers regardless of whether it is desktop/laptop browsers or mobile browsers including but not limited to Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer 10, Internet Explorer 11, Opera, Safari, Android Chrome, Windows Phone 8+, iOS6, Firefox mobile and so on.

Best suited for mobile app development – The earlier versions of AngularJS, did not pay attention to mobility oriented factors. The latest version focuses more on mobile specific trajectories the developers were longing all along. The latest version is geared towards performance based features such as going easy on the memory, touch based controllers and performance tuning to start with. As the platform is already addressing mobile application development glitches of the earlier versions, its overall efficiency is further boosted for desktop applications making Angular 2 to be a versatile technology for application development.

Flexibility with web components – The updated version shows greater flexibility towards all web components. Even components that were not supported earlier are now supported including Shadow DOM, HTML Imports and other custom elements. This certainly extends the horizon and the capability of the platform in developing web friendly applications.

  • Developer Friendly – Unlike the earlier version, AngularJS 2.0 is more developer friendly. This was not the case with the earlier version which was essentially designer friendly.
  • More user friendly – Those who have used the earlier versions will immediately vouch for the fact that the earlier version of AngularJS was not really user friendly. The learning curve was intense. The recent version has addressed this concern and made the entire platform to be more user friendly from the perspective of the developers.
  • Technical glitches addressed effectively – The earlier versions of AngularJS certainly had issues on facets like minification. The latest version tries to overcome these technical downsides.
  • Better routing systems – Angular 2.0 is focusing on bringing additional routing features such as nested states and sibling views for simpler and more efficient routing.

These are just some of the many benefits that one could expect from Angular 2.0. If you are in a dilemma whether to switch to AngularJS or not at this stage, then this is the high time to consider migration to this latest version of the application development platform. Angular 2.0 remedies all the SEO limitations that Angular 1.0 had. Although GoogleBot crawls and renders most dynamic websites, many search engines expect plain HTML. Server-side pre-rendering is thus, a reliable, flexible and efficient way to ensure that all search engines can access your content.
