Build richer, more powerful JavaScript apps in less time

About the book

AngularJS: Novice to Ninja is the perfect book to journey into the world of AngularJS, the superheroic JavaScript framework. Developed and maintained by Google, AngularJS brings the Model-View-Controller (MVC) pattern to JavaScript applications and provides a high quality foundation for building complex and powerful apps quickly.

AngularJS is an open source JavaScript framework that lets you create amazing AJAX-based web apps. Generally, the complexity involved in building large-scale and complex AJAX apps is tremendous. AngularJS aims to minimize this complexity by offering a great environment for development, as well as the means to test your apps.

As a client-side MVW(Model-View-Whatever) framework, one of the most powerful features of AngularJS is its ability to bring structure to your web apps. Another nice thing about AngularJS is that it extends the HTML vocabulary to make it suitable for building web apps, enabling you to create them declaratively; the resulting code is clean and very readable.

AngularJS ships with many great features out of the box, which you’ll use in your day-to-day programming. It supports two-way data binding, nice templating, easy REST interaction, custom component creation, multiple views, routing, and much more. It also demands no commitment. You can include Angular in your web page and use as many features as you like.

For these reasons (and many more that we’ll discuss during the course of this book), AngularJS is one of the top choices when it comes to Single Page App development. You’re going to enjoy working with AngularJS!
