AngularJS vs Node.js: What are the differences?

What is 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.

What is Node.js? A platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime for easily building fast, scalable network applications. 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.

AngularJS belongs to "Javascript MVC Frameworks" category of the tech stack, while Node.js can be primarily classified under "Frameworks (Full Stack)".

"Quick to develop", "Great mvc" and "Powerful" are the key factors why developers consider AngularJS; whereas "Npm", "Javascript" and "Great libraries" are the primary reasons why Node.js is favored.

AngularJS and Node.js are both open source tools. It seems that AngularJS with 59.6K GitHub stars and 28.9K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Node.js with 35.5K GitHub stars and 7.78K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Node.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 4104 company stacks & 4042 developers stacks; compared to AngularJS, which is listed in 2799 company stacks and 1865 developer stacks.
