What is AngularJS?

AngularJS lets you write client-side web applications as if you had a smarter browser. It lets you use good old HTML (or HAML, Jade and friends!) as your template language and lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your application’s components clearly and succinctly. It automatically synchronizes data from your UI (view) with your JavaScript objects (model) through 2-way data binding.
AngularJS is a tool in the Javascript MVC Frameworks category of a tech stack.
AngularJS is an open source tool with 59K GitHub stars and 27.6K GitHub forks. Here’s a link to AngularJS's open source repository on GitHub

AngularJS Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to AngularJS?
JavaScript
JavaScript is most known as the scripting language for Web pages, but used in many non-browser environments as well such as node.js or Apache CouchDB. It is a prototype-based, multi-paradigm scripting language that is dynamic,and supports object-oriented, imperative, and functional programming styles.
Angular
It is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework. It is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.
React
Lots of people use React as the V in MVC. Since React makes no assumptions about the rest of your technology stack, it's easy to try it out on a small feature in an existing project.
Node.js
Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient, perfect for data-intensive real-time applications that run across distributed devices.
jQuery
jQuery is a cross-platform JavaScript library designed to simplify the client-side scripting of HTML.
