NodeJS is a collection of different frameworks working under the same umbrella. Prominent frameworks in the package include Sails.js, Express.js, and Partial.js. AngularJS, on the other hand, is a standalone framework that capacitates development of engrossing applications for deployment on the web.
NodeJS finds a useful application in numerous areas. It is perfect for rapid development and thus facilitates numerous revisions in applications. The framework is best suited to enterprises where developers need to create complex apps and tweak them frequently to measure up to the demands of the market. Due to its sensitivity to latency, the framework is best suited for applications where page loading time is an issue. The features provided by NodeJS include debugger, modules, console, streaming, cluster, DNS, add-on, domain, buffer, global, call backs, crypto and error handling. NodeJS supports programming models that are driven by events, and are object and concurrency oriented. It offers support for coding languages like TypeScript, Coffee Script, and Ruby. Official IDE assistance is also extended.
AngularJS offers a host of features. Prominent among them are data binding, validators, providers, controllers, directives, modules, expressions, factories, services, filters, dependency injections, and scope. The framework is easy to apply because it serves to decouple the DOM manipulation from the logic of an application. Single page applications are best developed in an agile manner using this. Due to the availability of the plethora of useful features, developers are spared the problem of having to write tedious and complicated codes for even simpler apps. Codes are manageable and portable. HTML extensions are used for implementing cross-browser and mobile support. AngularJS efficiently delivers by integrating with user Interface tools and facilitates the creation of customized HTML codes. Support is provided for event-driven and object-oriented programming models. Scripting languages like Dart and TypeScript are supported. However, official IDE (Integrated Development Environment) support is not provided. The embedded IDE field has to resort to validation.
Both NodeJS and AngularJS comes equipped with an array of useful features that make the development of feature-rich applications a breeze.
