What are Nodejs and Angular?
Aspects to learn
Type of application
By using the Nodejs, we can create a highly scalable and performance-based server-side system or network-based application, for example, chatting application. And by using Angular, we can create a single page application with advanced UI components.
Suitable project requirement
Basically, Nodejs is useful for small and mid-sized application where the data matters a lot where Angular is ideal for the highly interactive and rich UI component-based application which serves the front-end to the end-user customers.
In order to the user or get started with the Nodejs, we need to have nodejs setup installed into our machine which can be any operating system like Windows, Mac or Linux and so on. To get started with the Angular, we need to have NPM (Node Package Manage) which comes automatically whenever install nodejs and also should have angular CLI latest version to be installed into our machine which can be useful for generating components, directives, classes, stylesheet and so on.
Angular itself is a framework so we just need to have Typescript to be installed via CLI and to use Nodejs, there are plenty of frameworks that are there like Expressjs, Koa.js, socket.io, sails.js, hapi.js and so on.
Both of them Nodejs and Angular have their own documentation but comparatively, angular documentation is pretty distributive in manner, but if we go through the Nodejs documentation it may seem complex for the beginner to get started. But nothing about the worry, there are tons of study material available for both of them hence we can easily find there and advanced concept with the help of Google.
Nowadays the open source term is booming as well because more and more people are choosing a product that is opensource and well managed. Both Nodejs and Angular are open-source so that we don’t need to get any license or we don’t need to pay a single penny to use it.
In this article, we have learned that what is the Nodejs and Angular, thereafter discovered a few major differences between them that how both are different at every aspect for the development and the configuration. Thus I would suggest learning both of them will make developer novice as a full stack developer and will get more opportunities in the near future, I hope you like this learning experience, Keep reading.
