Angular is one of the most famous front-end web development tools. It has been improving itself ever since it was launched to keep up with the new technologies and the demands of its users. It is also used for developing desktop and mobile applications. This tool is used by almost every big company, including Microsoft, Udemy, Google, Nike, Adobe, Apple, and even YouTube. Its use of these companies has led to increased demand for Angular experts.
But, like everything else in this world, Angular has its flaws and drawbacks. It can be beneficial due to its robust tools, but there are situations where it's best not to go with Angular.
In 2016, an entirely rewritten and new version of it was introduced by Google, naming it “Angular”. This new version included helpful tools like CLI(command-line interface), component-based architecture, and semantic versioning. After that, the open-source community kept improving it and launching newer versions with better features and fixed problems.
Since Angular 2+ is used by most of the developers that find it extremely beneficial, here are some strong points to consider:
Like every other tool, Angular has its disadvantages. One of them is the complexity of its code. Though its component-based, many new users find it difficult to read and manage. Due to its backward compatibility, developers cannot directly switch from AngularJs to Angular regardless of how to deal with migration documented in Angular’s detailed documentation. Since SPAs change meta tags using Js, search bots find it difficult to notice such changes as they only focus on the page's basic template, making it not so SEO-friendly. Angular isn’t the ideal choice for developers with limited resources because its complexity can become a bit hard to overcome.
Since Angular code is complex and can be challenging for some developers to read and maintain, the cost of hiring an Angular developer varies. It all depends on the number of hours required to make the web apps. The more the developer's experience, the higher is the cost to hire them. A simple app like SPA can take about 300 to 900 development hours to create. If a developer with basic skills is hired for about $25 per hour, the total comes down to $7500 to $22,500. As the complexity of the app increases, the number of hours required to make that app also increases, increasing the total cost.
