AngularJS + Cloud Endpoints

  • AngularJS is a popular open source JavaScript client-side MVC framework supporting the speedy development of client-side applications.
  • Cloud provides best practices and guidance to web developers who are interested in AngularJS or other client-side MVC technologies and want to optimize their server backend for these technologies.
  • They hold AngularJS with Google Cloud Platform and, in particular, Google Cloud Endpoints, a technology that lets developers expose their backend APIs of Google App Engine applications through service-based API, instantly with simple gloss.
  • Integrating the Google Cloud Endpoints JavaScript client library into AngularJS is so simple that you can write a single line of code to call server logic and a callback function to update model properties with the result.
  • Incorporating the Cloud Endpoints JavaScript client library into AngularJS is so simple and straight forward that you can write a single line of code to call server logic and a callback function is used to update model properties with the proper result.

AngularJS is a popular open source JavaScript client-side MVC framework supporting the speedy development of client-side applications. It helps in executing a majority of the MVC functionality at client-side, and lessening the difficulty of the server and results in applications composed around well-defined APIs that should be more maintainable and applicable.

Cloud provides best practices and guidance to web developers who are interested in AngularJS or other client-side MVC technologies and want to optimize their server backend for these technologies. They hold AngularJS with Google Cloud Platform and, in particular, Google Cloud Endpoints, a technology that lets developers expose their backend APIs of Google App Engine applications through service-based API, instantly with simple gloss.

Google Cloud Endpoints makes it simple to build a server-side API and enfold the backend boilerplate logic. Integrating the Google Cloud Endpoints JavaScript client library into AngularJS is so simple that you can write a single line of code to call server logic and a callback function to update model properties with the result.

The deliberate audience for this is Java developers with some experience with App Engine and a basic knowledge of JavaScript.

A recent change in web application frameworks has been the switch from Model-View-Controller (MVC) on the server to the MVC on the client. Recent advancements in client-side technology are driving this change in to new level. The result, however, is the challenge of building and creating stylish architect applications that span multiple devices hosted in the cloud.

Android, iOS and browser-based clients are rich development platforms and each one is capable to run a fully-fledged MVC framework. Development of the user interfaces (using MVC) on the client is a more natural architecture that better holds client developers’ skills. The growing popularity of client-side MVC frameworks such as AngularJS is representative of this shifting to the client. These frameworks helps in reducing the complexity and increases the reuse in even the simplest of the applications.

As the UI moves to the client, the server becomes simpler. Server-side developers need not worry about how to construct HTML pages using templates to generate the dynamic content. Rather, they can focus on implementing business logic and data persistence using technologies such as App Engine Data store access and then use a framework to expose services to their applications’ clients.

But the question is how to design and implement these modern web applications.

Google Cloud Endpoints is the answer for this question: a feature of Google App Engine that provides a RPC framework:

Using Cloud Endpoints, developers uncover the public methods of any class as a service endpoint with the addition of simple Java annotations.

And once it is done the next very step is to addresses the integration of Cloud Endpoints with client-side MVC frameworks such as Angular.JS

Conclusion

Here is some of the key benefits of AngularJS + Cloud Endpoints :

1.      Cloud Endpoints helps in making it easy to expose a server-side API by adding annotations to classes and methods to generate client libraries that support JavaScript.

2.      The AngularJS JavaScript based client-side MVC framework also supports the rapid development of client-side applications. Rich user experiences can be easily implemented by HTML and JavaScript. This helps in eliminating the need for server-side HTML rendering.

3.      Incorporating the Cloud Endpoints JavaScript client library into AngularJS is so simple and straight forward that you can write a single line of code to call server logic and a callback function is used to update model properties with the proper result.
