Google’s AngularJS 2 Release

Since the mid 1990s, JavaScript has been a common programming language used as a basis for the creation of dynamic websites and applications. It’s simple enough for even those with basic programming knowledge and understanding to use, yet it is quickly evolving and becoming the fastest way to create all kinds of functionality across a multitude of platforms and devices.

Recently, Google has released Angular 2, a new version of the conventional Angular tool whose purpose was to unify the creation of apps using JavaScript. Six years ago, Google released the original Angular to enable coders to create apps within the browser but this new version, Angular 2, will enable coders to create apps without the browser restrictions.

Angular 2 is currently in the “beta” phase of development but already there has been improvements over the original. Angular 2:

– is much faster than AngularJs
– supports fast initial loads
– allows offline compile
– has exceedingly fast change detection
– has fast view caching
– supports a variety of browsers
– can be used across different platforms

Google wanted to make it possible for the Angular framework to be used on mobile phones, smart technology and other devices. However, the new version did not prove popular with some developers who thought it was a step too far from the original Angular, making it difficult to use with existing websites and current services. However, the latest version has taken on board these issues and these concerns have been addressed.

For the last few years, Angular has been one of the most popular frameworks for building apps. The advantage for those currently using JavaScript is that they can now build apps for other formats like the iPhone or Android devices. Existing companies working with JavaScript are really going to benefit, as it will allow the creation of apps that they wouldn’t have been able to design previously.

There is currently a strong movement towards the creation of new apps as software develops and more people are becoming interested and skilled in using programming languages and tools to create apps of their own and Angular 2 is destined to be a key factor in this growing trend.
