Angular Development

JavaScript has turned out to be an extremely powerful programming language in recent times. From being a simple client end scripting language, it has been used in the creation of server-side applications as well as client-side applications.

While there are several factors that need to be considered before choosing a certain framework, NodeJS and Angular development services have been particularly popular.

An introduction to the sector

NodeJS, Angular and React JS are the top three most common JavaScript platforms of recent times. Both the Angular and NodeJS platforms are extremely efficient and useful in developing powerful client-side and server-side applications and for interactive and feature-rich cross-platform experience in JavaScript language.

A look into the basics

Angular and NodeJS are both open source JavaScript-based technologies. Angular development services have been in high demand in recent times as it helps developers in building dynamic web applications with the help of HTML language as a template, and adhering to the MVC (model view controller) architectural pattern. 

While Angular is a Javascript framework and Angular development services are used to develop dynamic web apps, NodeJS is a cross-platform runtime environment used by NodeJS development companies.

A NodeJS development company uses the platform to run Javascript applications outside a web browser. It is used by programmers to build scalable server-side applications with the help of JavaScript as the server-side programming language. 

This makes it pretty clear that NodeJS and Angular are quite different from each other, and stand apart from each other in terms of  architecture, functionality, performance, and usage.

NodeJS vs Angular: The key features

Here, we are going to look into the key features of each of the platforms, so that we can easily bring out the differences of each and the benefits of using each of the platforms for development.


  • Open source and runs on platforms like Windows and macOS. Free for anyone to use.
  • Enhanced speed and performance on the platform which enables a NodeJS development company or developer to perform a non-blocking operation, enhancing web app performance.
  • It has incredible in-built APIs which can be used to make different kinds of servers including DNS server, TCP server, HTTP server, and more.
  • The NodeJS platform has an efficient unit testing known as Jasmine that helps developers to test a written code.
  • Performance improvisation through both horizontal and vertical scaling facilities on the NodeJS framework which is known for its high scalability.
  • It also has no buffering and is single-threaded.
  • It is also an asynchronous and event-driven framework.


  • The Angular platform is integrated with an MVC or model view controller framework which is extremely user-friendly and makes the development of client-side applications easier.
  • The Angular platform has a POJO ( Plain Old JavaScript Objects) model, which makes it completely self-sufficient.
  • The MVW (Model View Whatever) architecture, on top of the MVC framework, helps Angular Development services in building data-driven, interactive web apps. The MVW architecture basically manipulates and remodels DOM to update site data and behavior.
  • Angular is known to be extremely user-friendly and has been the most preferred JavaScript framework as a result. The DOM manipulation can be easily decoupled from an app logic.
  • It also has unit testing facilities, working on an HTML user interface that enables filtering.
  • It also enables behavior with directives for any web application.

NodeJS vs Angular: Applications of the platforms

With all the features discussed, it is important to consider the key applications to decide whether you need Angular development services, or if you want to hire a NodeJS development company.

NodeJS applications

  • Single-page applications
  • I/O bound applications 
  • Data streaming applications 
  • JSON APIs based apps
  • Data-Intensive Real-time applications

Angular applications

  • Video streaming apps
  • User-generated content portals
  • eCommerce Portals
  • User-review apps
  • Various heavy and high-end app development

Short ending note

That being said, using a suitable platform can make the entire development seamless, efficient, and most importantly, successful. However, this surely calls out for you to make even better decisions at which of the development services you want to integrate in your business. Make a wise call!
