Discrepancy of the 2 Supernovas of JavaScript: AngularJS and Node.js

“In JavaScript, there is a beautiful, elegant, highly expressive language that is buried under a steaming pile of good intentions and blunders – Douglas Crockford

Before we begin the actual difference about AngularJS and Node.js, let’s have a brief idea about JavaScript, AngularJS and Node.js.

What is JavaScript?

JavaScript is a cross-platform and an object-oriented programming language. It is small and a lightweight programming language. The language can be inter-connected to objects having programming control over them. Core JS solves many of the purposes such as

  • Client-side scripting – supplying object to control browser and DOM. For e.g. it allows an application to place the elements on the form and can respond the page navigation, mouse click, etc.
  • Server-side scripting – supplying objects relevant to running JavaScript on the server by extending the core language.

What is Node.js?

Node.js is a server side open source cross-platform runtime environment for developing a variety of applications. The platform is built on Chrome’s JavaScript runtime for the easy and fast building of the applications. A lightweight, efficient, and real-time environment where applications run on across distributed devices.

What is AngularJS?

AngularJS is a JavaScript framework used for creating dynamic web applications or in other words, it’s an open-source structural framework which is developed and maintained by Google. It allows using HTML for designing templates and allows you to extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly.

AngularJS vs Node.js

If you strictly want to follow MVC architecture, build applications with less code, and perform unit testing, you can go ahead using AngularJS. And if you want to use the same language both on server and client side and implement the single threaded-event driven system then you can select Node.js.

So, these were the 2 best used JavaScript supernovas at your disposal, and using them, you can come up with best web applications for your audience.
