How is Angular JS better than Knockout JS OR Should I prefer Angular JS or Knockout JS ?
Both angular js and ko js has it own function,It is depend on the needs.
For data driven app. Choose Angular. It is a nice data binding.
The basic difference is that AngularJS handle the whole application and defines guidelines on how the application code should be structured, In KnockoutJS the application structure is fully depend on the user.
Knockout has a low barrier of entry, but difficult to handle the code base and complexity grows. It is tough to build the main infrastructure correctly, and bad decisions made in structuring code may cost a lot to fix in the future.
Angular’s ability to bind directly to plain objects, modular structure, and strict development guidelines stop more problem right from the start, and give a strong architectural foundation for the application.
Some of the points:
- Knockout is equal to light weight Angular.
- Both Knockout and Angular have the automatic data binding.
- Knockout is popular in .net development, while Angular is backed up by Google Angular has service, directives, Knockout doesn’t have that.
