What is Angular 2?

Angular is a development platform for building mobile and desktop web applications.

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.

What is Backbone.js?

Backbone supplies structure to JavaScript-heavy applications by providing models key-value binding and custom events, collections with a rich API of enumerable functions, views with declarative event handling, and connects it all to your existing application over a RESTful JSON interface.

What are some alternatives to Angular 2, AngularJS, and Backbone.js?
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.
Polymer
Polymer is a new type of library for the web, designed to leverage the existing browser infrastructure to provide the encapsulation and extendability currently only available in JS libraries. Polymer is based on a set of future technologies, including Shadow DOM, Custom Elements and Model Driven Views. Currently these technologies are implemented as polyfills or shims, but as browsers adopt these features natively, the platform code that drives Polymer evacipates, leaving only the value-adds.
Aurelia
Aurelia is a next generation JavaScript client framework that leverages simple conventions to empower your creativity.
Vue.js
It is a library for building interactive web interfaces. It provides data-reactive components with a simple and flexible API.
Meteor
A Meteor application is a mix of JavaScript that runs inside a client web browser, JavaScript that runs on the Meteor server inside a Node.js container, and all the supporting HTML fragments, CSS rules, and static assets.

How developers use Angular 2, AngularJS, and Backbone.js
Avatar of Trello

When the data request returns, Backbone.js gets busy. The idea with Backbone is that we render each Model that comes down from the server with a View, and then Backbone provides an easy way to:

1) Watch for DOM events within the HTML generated by the View and tie those to methods on the corresponding Model, which re-syncs with the server

2) Watch the model for changes, and re-render the model’s HTML block to reflect them

Neat! Using that general approach, we get a fairly regular, comprehensible, and maintainable client. We custom-built a client-side Model cache to handle updates and simplify client-side Model reuse.

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

The Angular 2 CLI is great, it's easy to get up and running with a project.

The really great thing about Angular 2 is it allows us to work with designers by augmenting their artifacts (html pages) with Angular directives. This allows our designs to go back and forth between designers and engineers without having to learn a new markup language (like JSX).

The main web store is a Backbone.js single page web application, and so it hits API endpoints to do all the calls, and we use those same API endpoints for the consumer iPhone app, the consumer Android app, and the consumer mobile web app. It worked out really nicely, us just building one API and just all these clients, including the web client, using that.

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.

Used Backbone.js as the JavaScript framework for creating this Single Page Application. With our data exposed as RESTful API's, Backbone's collections consumes them and provides the data to the Backbone's view for it's use in rendering.

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.

Angular 2 is a great framework for C# developers. Deeply rooted in OOP & MVC principles and full integration with TypeScript. My go-to for client-side dev now...

Major part of our UI application uses Backbone models and views extensively. Though there's a plan to migrate to React and Redux.

All of our web apps are built using BackboneJS. Keeps our code clean and organized, and keeps the page refreshing to a minimum!
