Top 8 AngularJS Frameworks for Web Application Development

Simple static HTML web pages are a thing of the past now. The giant leaps in JavaScript, considered to be the mother of all coding languages, has made AngularJS a preferred framework for web application development.

Any AngularJS Development company can create dynamic and responsive websites easily due to the powerful features of this framework. Developers can use HTML as a template language and extend it to add new attributes to the application.

For an inexperienced developer, building a web application from scratch in AngularJS may seem overwhelming. Some expert developers have tweaked AngularJS to develop multiple front-end frameworks. Like a typical framework, they are offered with pre-built web components and are a perfect tool for anyone who needs to develop a web application at a lightning-fast speed.

Let’s explore 8 of these frameworks in this blog.

Angular UI Grid

As a part of the Angular UI suite, it is designed in the form of a data grid for AngularJS applications. Developers can manipulate large and complex sets of data using this grid. Simultaneously, they can take advantage of the plug-in architecture to use only those features that are required in a particular project. Also, the templates are customizable. The additional features include row expansion, sorting, filtering, grouping, column pinning, and virtualization.

Ionic

Optimized for AngularJS, Ionic is commonly used to develop mobile applications and web-based applications. This advanced framework supports the development of HTML5 and CSS3 applications, thus offering rich UI/UX. It also provides a free and open-source software development kit (SDK) along with a library of UI components, which helps to build hybrid applications for touch-sensitive devices.

LumX

LumX has been designed on the lines of Google Material Design. It comes with features that help developers build user interfaces, according to Google’s guidelines. The MVC design pattern facilitates web application development. jQuery helps to boost the web application’s performance. The front-end framework is a combination of SAAS, Neat, and Bourbon.

Suave UI

In Suave UI, the users can take advantage of the CSS definitions, directives, and services to build different types of web-based user interfaces quickly. With UI components already included in the bundled files, users are not required to include them separately. They can use a command to add Suave UI in their project through Bower.

Mobile Angular UI

Mobile Angular UI is used for developing mobile applications that are powered by HTML5. Optimized for AngularJS and Bootstrap, it proffers extensive support to powerful libraries like fastclick.js and overthrow.js. You will get essential mobile components, such as sidebars, overlays, switches, scrollable areas, and more. You can easily design a responsive user-interface for mobile-friendly web applications.

UI Bootstrap

The parent of UI Bootstrap is the front-end framework called Bootstrap. Web developers can use the repository of components with dependencies like AngularJS, Bootstrap CSS, Angular-animate, and Angular-touch. Since the directives included in the repository have external markup, the developers have the option to use the markup as templates. They can further make changes to the external markup to create custom templates according to their specific requirements. They are also required to use the code for the required directives, as each directive has its own AngularJS module. 

Angular Material

It is a library of UI components for AngularJS developers and provides over 30 UI components and services. These components help in constructing attractive, consistent, and functional web applications. They follow modern web design principles, including browser portability, device independence, and graceful degradation. It helps in creating faster, responsive websites by providing features like simple button components with built-in ink and hover effects, theming, and ARIA support. It is inspired by Google Material Design.

Supersonic UI Framework

As a developer, you can use this framework to craft API (Application Programming Interface) based applications for both Android and iOS platforms. It follows a modern approach for integrating native code and HTML5. Backend data interaction is also an easy task, as Supersonic easily integrates with various REST APIs.

Leveraging the excellent Ionic CSS framework, Supersonic UI can display flawlessly on all mobile devices. It has all the popular components you’ll need to craft beautiful apps. After all, each one of us is not a pro at designing. 

Summing it Up

Front-end AngularJS frameworks make life easy for developers. They can continue to build and test web applications without any interruption. Furthermore, it provides a host of new features and capabilities that developers might not have explored before. So it’s a win-win situation for both the developer and the application owner.
