Advantages Of Using AngularJS Over JQuery

It’s pretty clear that we are going to discuss the pros & cons of using Angular with the help of this post. However, I would like to begin with some introduction on both the topics before heading towards the differences.

JQuery vs AngularJS

Advantages of using AngularJS over jQuery


AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. It lets you use HTML as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. Angular’s data binding and dependency injection eliminate much of the code you would otherwise have to write.


jQuery is a fast, small, and feature-rich JavaScript library. It makes things like HTML document traversal and manipulation, event handling, animation, and Ajax much simpler with an easy-to-use API that works across a multitude of browsers.
