6 Reasons Top Engineers Recommend Angular 👍

Angular, React, Meteor, Ember, Backbone, Knockout…

How do you choose?

Making the wrong decision can be very costly.

Both companies and developers currently face this problem.

Getting started with any new technology is an investment. Whether that’s in time, money or both.

Joe Eames is a software craftsman that has made some big bets on Angular.

Joe is the founder of ng-conf, the largest Angular conference, and is now working with other industry leaders to help educate developers about the framework.

I asked him, “Why are you so confident in the future of Angular?” He gave me six convincing reasons to believe in the framework.

I’ll let you read his response for yourself.

Here are the six reasons why Joe Eames recommends Angular:

First, we have performance. Angular 2 is fast. Blazing fast; in fact, no framework is faster. Some are right there with it neck and neck, but nothing is faster than Angular 2.

Next, Angular 2 was built with modern tools and standards in mind. It supports ES6 modules, tools like webpack and SystemJS, and has even helped push the standards by helping to pioneer decorators in ECMAScript.

The mental model of Angular 2 is much more simplified than Angular 1. No longer do you have to choose between three similar concepts when designing the major building blocks of your application. Instead, components handle everything.

Angular 2 is the natural successor to Angular 1, so it’s poised to become just as popular, if not even more so than Angular 1 was. That means that learning it will likely be good for your career, and later, you will have an easier time finding experienced Angular 2 developers.

Angular 2 is also a complete solution; it includes rendering, compilation, binding, server communication, and unit testing all together. No need to worry about trying to choose from twenty different libraries when you actually need to make an HTTP call.

Finally, Angular 2 was built from the ground up to solve the same problems Angular 1 solves: everything from simple demo apps to large enterprise-scale applications. It is highly testable, supports accessibility and localization, and works great for one man shops through to huge teams.

Exchange Data Between Directive and Controller in AngularJS

  • The project required me to write a directive for a canvas, get the Base64 image data when a user draws on it, and make it available to the controller of the page which contains the directive.
  • This boils down to the fact that you need to access the scope of a Directive from a page Controller and access the scope of a page Controller from a Directive.
  • Now let’s say we have the following controller:

    And the following template:

    The problem: we would like to bind the count variable of myCtrl to the internalCount variable of the counter directive.

  • This can easily be solved by binding a variable from the controller to the scope of the directive.
  • Your directive should now look like this:

    And your template like this:

    You will find a working fiddle here with all the code to this quick tutorial on how to exchange data between a directive and controller in AngularJS.

In this Quick Tutorial we will look at How to Exchange Data Between Directive and Controller in AngularJS and bind the scopes to each other.

DailyJS: Signature Pad, Windows 8.1 Apps with Open Source JavaScript

  • This screencast by Ala Shiban demonstrates how to use some of Microsoft’s technologies with open source projects like AngularJS to create a Windows Store application.
  • I put together a 17 minute video that gets you started with writing a native Win8.1 app using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, TypeScript, AngularJS, Bootstrap, underscore, BankersBox and jQuery.
  • It uses TypeScript, Blend for Visual Studio, NuGet, jQuery, AngularJS, Underscore, and Bootstrap.
  • I haven’t used Windows 8 or Visual Studio much before, so I thought it was interesting seeing how it integrated with third-party open source JavaScript libraries through NuGet, and how debugging JavaScript worked.
  • I noticed Ala had to wrap some calls inside AngularJS (mainly things that wrote to ) to satisfy Microsoft’s security requirements for Windows Store apps.

Signature Pad (GitHub: szimek / signaturepad, License: _MIT) by Szymon Nowak is a client-side library for drawing smooth signatures. It works with touchscreens and desktop browsers, and was inspired by the Smoother Signatures post on Square’s (excellent) engineering blog.

Angular testing made easy – Clarity Design System – Medium

“Angular Testing Made Easy” by @EudesPV  #angularjs #javascript #typescript #testing #coding

  • So what’s the most efficient way to centralize that boilerplate, so that your actual spec files can focus on the unit tests themselves?This article will show you a neat solution to this problem, using two little-known features: Jasmine’s user context and Typescript’s ability to type this.
  • There are two main advantages to this approach over local variables: it helps fight the memory leaks that keep creeping up on large projects’ tests, and it also offers a very easy way to have your beforeEach and it in two different files, which is much harder to set up with local variables.CAUTION: We are using a plain function() {} here, rather than the very useful () = {} arrow notation from Typescript.
  • One of the recommended patterns (and the one we use the most, by far, in Clarity) is to use a “test host” component which includes the actual component to test in its template:This example makes a few assumptions to keep it simple: the templates are all inline or inlined at build time so we don’t need to MyUserComponent doesn’t depend on other components, … Feel free to adapt to your specific use case.Introducing the TestContextIf we want to extract all the boilerplate into a separate file, we need to decide what the type of the user context passed around by Jasmine should be.
  • The one difference is that we’re getting the tested directive through the injector, rather than componentInstance, once again to be able handle attribute directives and components at the same time.The final spec fileLet’s remove all the boilerplate from the user component’s spec file and use our brand new context:It’s now entirely comprised of the unit tests, no distractions or verbose setup to go through.
  • That’s a win!To improve this further, you could easily:include the setup() call at the root of the tests to have it always be available,allow passing extra directives to declare or modules to import, in case your component depends on other ones,add additional shortcuts to the TestContext interface,throw explicit errors when trying to test with a host component that does not contain the directive,…In our case, for instance, we have a shortcut to get providers from the tested element’s injector.

If you’re here, you have probably already read the Angular documentation on testing, and maybe have written a few tests for your own project. If you have not, I can only suggest you do so, because…
