The most preferred front-end framework on the list, Angular JS is a developer's favourite when it comes to interfacing with Drupal. It lets them create feature-rich dynamic web applications and allow Drupal to work more efficiently, resulting in a dynamic, secure and a gripping Drupal website. Backed by Google itself, this open source framework allows you to do handle your user's browser without having to fetch data from your server.
Things Developers Love about Angular
- Extremely light weight and extensible with a wide scope of features.
- An interactive frame-work, a result of it great functionality like the two-way binding which allows user actions to immediately trigger application objects.
- Developers love HTML and the fact that AngularJS uses plain HTML templates that can be easily re-used, modified or extended, allows them to build interactive feature-rich web applications.
- With a client-side nature, AngularJS does a great job in handling cyber attacks as any data looking to breach the security cannot get anywhere near the server.
- Immense community support which provides answers, tutorials and used cases, with well-developed documentation.
Drupal & AngularJS
With the user expectations growing with each passing day, decoupled Drupal or headless Drupal as it is commonly known, is a norm these days in the digital world. The idea is to take advantage of Drupal's flexibility and powerful back-end capabilities while using a front-end framework to handle the browser end. What better option than the interactive AngularJS to do the talking to the browser while Drupal takes care of the feature filled back-end.
Also, AngularJS does a great job in offloading Drupal from some of its logic and helping Drupal function effectively at the back-end. By moving display logic to the client-side and streamlining the back-end will result in a site which is better and faster.
