AngularJS vs JavaScript: What are the differences?

Developers describe AngularJS as "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. On the other hand, JavaScript is detailed as "Lightweight, interpreted, object-oriented language with first-class functions". 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.

AngularJS can be classified as a tool in the "Javascript MVC Frameworks" category, while JavaScript is grouped under "Languages".

"Quick to develop", "Great mvc" and "Powerful" are the key factors why developers consider AngularJS; whereas "Can be used on frontend/backend", "It's everywhere" and "Lots of great frameworks" are the primary reasons why JavaScript is favored.

AngularJS is an open source tool with 59.6K GitHub stars and 28.9K GitHub forks. Here's a link to AngularJS's open source repository on GitHub.

Airbnb, Instagram, and reddit are some of the popular companies that use JavaScript, whereas AngularJS is used by Google, Lyft, and Udemy. JavaScript has a broader approval, being mentioned in 5086 company stacks & 6486 developers stacks; compared to AngularJS, which is listed in 2799 company stacks and 1864 developer stacks.
