A robust technology supported
and developed by Google
Creating mobile and web products with just one open-source framework is possible when using Angular. This highly popular tool is appreciated by many developers because it gives them a possibility to build apps with reusable code for many platforms without losing performance and speed.
Google based its main applications on Angular, making the framework a real hit. It proved that its scalability is incomparable. With all the enhancements it provides, building apps using it is highly productive.
Used for many purposes
Its universal nature is what makes it truly a solution for many. Web applications, Progressive Web Apps or multi-platform desktop applications - you name it. This framework can be really used for many purposes. And that doesn’t mean it lacks in any other department.
Generating universal code is what distinguishes Angular. Code splitting feature is responsible for preserving excellent performance, since it renders only requested elements. It’s also a framework for demanding, large projects enabling great scalability based on using multiple tools.
Who might benefit from
Using Angular technology can definitely bring lots of advantages to every software project. That’s because it has an extensive base of resources that helps with building products for many platforms and purposes.

Why and when Angular? We use it especially for enterprise applications. First of all Angular natively supports TypeScript which has all features needed to create simple, maintainable, and reusable code. Unlike ReactJS, Angular is a complex framework - it helps build applications faster because we don’t need extra packages for HTTP requests, routing, forms, or animations. All this stuff is already prepared and ready to use.
If an application does not require dedicated UI solutions we try to use open source components. In most cases, we choose Material UI. Those modern UI components developed by the Angular team to integrate seamlessly with Angular can be used across mobile, desktop, and web applications. The solution is focused on performance, versatile, and well optimization.
Angular natively supports web components. What does it mean? If an application has to be built of independent parts, or to be integrated with an existing solution but needs extra elements without the complete Angular infrastructure, it’s not a problem. Web components allow us to create reusable elements, which encapsulate the whole functionality and isolate it from the rest of the code.
Most applications can be adapted to server-side rendering. In Angular, we can easily achieve it using Angular Universal. SSR allows us to render the application on the server and then sends a fully rendered page to the client who gets content faster. The application can be crawled for its content and equipped with metadata for social media channels.
Depending on the application, our team decides if a store is needed or not. Store acts as a single source of truth for the application state. Our most common choice is NgRx - the most popular store management for Angular applications. It’s perfect for applications with extended user interface and multiple data stores - perfect for domain-driven architectures. We exchange it for NGXS sometimes which works similarly. If a store should be shared between different applications, e.g. Vue, React, or even VanillaJs applications - our team chooses Akita.
Angular is equipped with a powerful CLI. Creating applications is very fast and simple; further maintenance of an application is so straightforward. It happens, however, that we exchange it for NX. NX is a set of extensible dev tools for monorepos used by companies like Google, Microsoft, or Facebook. It helps us scale development between teams working together in the same workspace. Ease of code sharing, common command line interface, easy building, and deploying; reusable components help us create enterprise architecture. NX natively supports DDD and the microfrontend architecture for complex applications. Furthermore, it has a support for TypeScript, React, Angular, Cypress, Jest, Prettier, Nest.js, Next.js, Storybook, and Ionic among others.
Depending on the communication layer we can use an HTTP client or a WebSocket client taken from the RxJS library. At present we are starting integration with GraphQL. Facebook technology has become very popular so we can adapt to it using the Apollo client.
