Bixal developers have been using AngularJS for some time, building dynamic, high-performance, API-driven enterprise applications that bring the user interface to life for our clients and the people they serve. We love Angular’s core concept - extending the capabilities of HTML in order to deliver powerful yet lightweight web apps. With the release of AngularJS 2.0, Google has essentially gutted and rebuilt the framework while doubling-down on the Angular approach. Here are three reasons why we’re excited:
Native app development. Angular 2.0 supports NativeScript, which allows Angular developers to tap into native development for iOS and Android devices (Windows Phones coming soon). In other words, you can create an iPhone app with Angular, CSS, and HTML! NativeScript is currently very functional, but is still lacking in some areas (e.g. support for media queries). We’re confident it will continue to improve, especially now that it has Angular spurring it along.
AngularJS 2.0 presents a substantial learning curve for developers, even for those of us who are comfortable with AngularJS 1.x, but we’re looking forward to the potential for more readable code with greater efficiency to help drive the next generation of cutting-edge web applications. With Google's significant investment in the framework, we are offered assurance that it will continue to evolve and there will be an active support community for the foreseeable future.
Our clients are a reflection of us—broad,diverse, and purpose driven.
