Ever since the emergence of single-page applications (SPAs), frontend development has experienced a major drift across the paradigm.

A framework, in terms of software, is a defined set of rules which defines a generic process and provides functionality that the consumers of that framework can use to develop functionalities on top of it. A framework is not only limited to assisting the application process but also entails standardized ways that can help in the testing and deployment of applications. In today’s agile world, instead of doing the same job repeatedly and recreating the wheel, the software industry is on the verge of using a variety of frameworks as per their own technology stacks. The solution providers have started implementing some cool and interesting ideas and are releasing them in the form of frameworks so as to capture the needs of the agile market in the longer run.

In simple words, a framework is a set of rules that provides us the correct tools in order to develop an application. In frameworks, everything is properly structured; be it the core, modules, or components, a framework provides an organized development experience. Angular is a frontend development framework that is used to build single-page applications (SPAs). It works on a distributed approach and facilitates component-based development using HTML and TypeScript. The framework, overall, consists of numerous TypeScript libraries that we use in order to create a high-performant Angular application. Since Angular operates on component-based development, it has defined its own set of fundamental structures that builds up an overall Angular ecosystem. Angular components, services, modules, templates, directives, decorators, routing, pipes; are some of the atom elements that, when combined together, enable a smooth development experience.

The success or failure of any new technology that comes out in the market fundamentally depends upon how well its architecture has been laid up. The more scalable the architecture is, the more the technology will last in the market. Angular is one of those few technologies in the software industry that has rightly marked the spot and has been successfully operating for 10+ years now. Angular has extremely well-built architectural foundations with a high room for scalability, hence, it improves itself from time to time and adds new features that have the potential to not only make the development process easier but also increase the performance and usability of applications.
