AngularJS vs Angular: What is The Major Difference Between Angular and Angular JS?

Angular and AngularJS are amongst the most popular JavaScript frameworks that are useful in Front-End Web Development. So before stepping into a discussion of what is the difference between Angular and Angular JS or a debate on Angularjs vs Angular, let’s understand their approach.

Nowadays, the AngularJS framework is trending because it has wide scope for developing remarkable SPA’s (Single-page-web-apps). In addition, AngularJS provides a structural platform that fundamentally expands the HTML DOM with additional features and helps in developing a responsive application to the user's activity. The current version of AngularJS is 1.8.2

On the other hand, Angular versions are preferable as a robust front end-tool that supplies components. These components assist a developer in writing and re-write an easy-to-use, readable and maintainable code. The current version of Angular is 13.


Architecture : Angular.js works on MVC (Model-View-Controller) model.

Language : AngularJS code is written using Javascript.

Mobile Support : AngularJS code is Less mobile-friendly.

Expression syntax : {{ }} expressions are useful in two way binding between view and model. Special methods such as ng-bind can also be used to do the same.

Dependency Injection : Dependency injection system is not used in AngularJS

Routing : AngularJS development team utilizes @routeProvider.when ( ), for both configuration and routing information.

Management : AngularJS project is difficult to manage with increasing the size of the source code.

Version : Angular JS latest version is 1.8.2


Architecture : Angular uses components and directives.

Language : Angular code is written using Microsoft TypeScript.

Mobile Support : Angular helps in building mobile support applications.

Expression syntax : ( ) and [ ] attributes are used for two way binding between both view and model.

Dependency Injection : A hierarchical dependency injection system is used in Angular.

Routing : The Angular team utilizes @RouteConfiguration {(…)} to define routing information.

AngularJS vs Angular: 8 Major Differences Between Angular and AngularJS

AngularJS vs Angular: Features

To have a better understanding of the differences, let's dig into some features of both AngularJS and Angular.

Features of AngularJS

• Controllers in AngularJS are basically JavaScript functions that are bound to a specific case and scope
• AngularJS provides various inbuilt services to fulfill the requirements. For instance, http to create an XML Http Request.
• Data binding is the programmed synchronization of the data between both view and model components
• Routing is a feature that is useful in transferring views, and in turn providing solutions.
• Directives are the markers on DOM foundations such as attributes, data elements, CSS and etc. Further, these foundations are useful in creating customized HTML tags that may serve as new widgets. It also has inbuilt directives like ngBind and ngModel.
• MVW i.e. Model view whatever is a pattern for separating data application into dissimilar parts known as model, view, and controller, which have distinctive accountabilities. AngularJS does not devise MVC architecture in traditional style but, is somewhat close to the Model view-view model (MVVM).

Features of Angular

• Angular creates native web applications with approaches from Ionic, Cordova, or NativeScript
• Further, it uses contemporary web policy and compatibility to develop apps like abilities-offline, speedy performance, and zero-step installation
• Angular rapidly creates UI views with powerful and simple template syntax values.
• It has a command-line tool that is helpful in adding tests, components, and other related things, and then promptly deploys it.
• It also creates complex, high-performance animations timeline and documentation with less adoption of code through Angular’s in-built API.
