Ampersand.js vs AngularJS: What are the differences?

Ampersand.js: A highly modular, loosely coupled, non-frameworky framework for building advanced JavaScript apps. We <3 Backbone.js at &yet. It’s brilliantly simple and solves many common problems in developing clientside applications. But we missed the focused simplicity of tiny modules in node-land. We wanted something similar in style and philosophy, but that fully embraced tiny modules, npm, and browserify. Ampersand.js is a well-defined approach to combining (get it?) a series of intentionally tiny modules; AngularJS: Superheroic JavaScript MVW Framework. 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.

Ampersand.js and AngularJS can be primarily classified as "Javascript MVC Frameworks" tools.

      AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. With AngularJS, designers can use HTML as the template language and it allows for the extension of HTML's syntax to convey the application's components effortlessly. Angular makes much of the code you would otherwise have to write completely redundant. We can use Angular to build any kind of app, taking advantage of features like: Two-way binding, templating, RESTful api handling, modularization, AJAX handling, dependency injection, etc

      All of our frontend code is on AngularJS. Directives, controllers, and services really help in organizing code in order to keep things maintainable, and two-way binding makes data input easy. The large ecosystem of modules for directives is fantastic, too.

      When ever I need heavy user client side apps this is my tool of choice. There are a ton of JS frameworks out there, picked this one because of philosophy they are trying to put out there and great community. Two way data binding FTW!

      The front end was built on an Angular template supplied by the client. We leveraged Angular's flexibility and speed to delivered complex matrices of data quickly and with great finesse.

      We use Angular.js to build our front-end framework known as Frontkit, so our apps can get started faster with reliable, interactive components.
