AngularJS Vs JQuery

AngularJS Vs jQuery

Instead of just explaining the difference and listing features of both technologies, I further tried to provide answers for more related questions as well as concepts. For example:

  • When to use jQuery or AngularJS?
  • How to avoid common mistake of using AngularJS in jQuery Fashion?
  • Developer’s perspective – Code Comparison
  • Can we use jQuery inside or with AngularJS?

 

AngularJS

AngularJS is a product by none other the Search Engine Giant Google and it’s an open source MVC-based framework (considered to be the best and only next generation framework). AngularJS is a great tool for building highly rich client-side web applications.

As being a framework, it dictates us to follow some rules and a structured approach. It’s not just a JavaScript library but a framework that is perfectly designed (framework tools are designed to work together in a truly interconnected way).

In comparison of features  AngularJS Vs jQuery, AngularJS simply offers more features:

  • Two-Way data binding
  • REST friendly
  • MVC-based Pattern
  • Deep Linking
  • Template
  • Form Validation
  • Dependency Injection
  • Localization
  • Full Testing Environment
  • Server Communication

jQuery

jQuery is a lightweight and feature-rich JavaScript Library that helps web developers by simplifying the usage of client-side scripting for web applications using JavaScript. It extensively simplifies using JavaScript on a website and it’s lightweight as well as fast.

So, using jQuery, we can:

  • easily manipulate the contents of a webpage
  • apply styles to make UI more attractive
  • easy DOM traversal
  • effects and animation
  • simple to make AJAX calls and
  • utilities and much more… etc.

As mentioned earlier, jQuery is a JavaScript library, so we can use this library in our application partially/fully to fulfill a single or many of the features it provides (as listed above). For example, we can simply use jQuery library in our application to give some effects and animations or simply making AJAX-based calls or using all of the above listed features. It’s just like a plugin.

When to Use AngularJS or jQuery?

Most of the time, people fail to comprehend the real value of these technologies during application development. AngularJS is best suited for the web application development as it works on the HTML code and JSON data which helps in developing for interactive and robust applications but using the same for a simple website development results in slow loading and quite erratic websites.

While jQuery is a fast and feature-rich language which has a a commendable JavaScript library and a great tool for creating feature-rich websites. It has in-built features such as HTML document traversal, event handling, manipulation, animation and Ajax support and others which make it easier and simpler to develop hardcore websites. Therefore before utilizing any of these highly intuitive and robust languages, it is necessary to frame a sound approach dedicated either to develop an advanced web application or website development.

Can We Use jQuery Inside Or With AngularJS?

In certain scenarios, we may want our AngularJS application to use jQuery library. Now, AngularJS can use jQuery in our application when the application is being bootstrapped. Otherwise, Angular will use its own implementation of the subset of jQuery that we discussed above jqLite.
