AngularJS Vs JQuery


AngularJS is a product by Google and is an open source MVC-based framework. It is considered as one of the best next generation framework. AngularJS is a tool for building highly rich client-side web applications.

Angular, for short, is a great tool because it was built under the model of what HTML would have been had it been designed for building web apps. That is to say it is very easy to understand because it utilizes HTML as you already know it.

As a framework, it requires us to follow a structured approach and some rules. It’s more than a JavaScript library as it is build around a framework.

In comparison of features jQuery Vs AngularJS, AngularJS simply offers more features:

  • Two-Way data binding
  • MVC-based Pattern
  • REST friendly
  • Template
  • Deep Linking
  • Dependency Injection
  • Server Communication
  • Form Validation
  • Localization
  • Full Testing Environment


jQuery on the other hand is a lightweight but feature-rich JavaScript Library created to help web developers by simplifying the usage of client-side scripting for web applications using JavaScript. 

So, using jQuery, we can:

  • easily manipulate the contents of a webpage
  • easy DOM traversal
  • apply styles to make UI more attractive
  • effects and animation
  • simple to make AJAX calls and
  • utilities and much more… etc.

AngularJS is built for Single Page Apps and you can do more than just DOM Manipulation.
JQuery is a library built mainly for DOM Manipulation.

AngularJS and JQuery Code Comparision

AngularJS Code JQuery Code
<tab title="Tab1">
<tab title="Tab2">
<tab title="Tab3">

<div id="tabs">
  <li><a href="#tab1">Tab 1</a></l1>
  <li><a href="#tab1">Tab 2</a></l1>
  <li><a href="#tab1">Tab 3</a></l1>
<div id="tabs-1">
<div id="tabs-2">
<div id="tabs-3">

Which is better from the 2? AngularJS or JQuery ?

JQuery is more like a library than a framework. For building a regular web app with views and small bit of interactivity on the page, use JQuery.
But, if you need a lot of interactivity and better user experience, you should use Angular, but you'll need to have a REST API or something similar to consume data from somewhere.

So when you are looking to develop robust applications, then opt for AngularJS and in order to add more functionality and to perform DOM manipulation on the website, then stick with jQuery.

Which of the 2, AngularJS or JQuery, should I learn ?

It is recommended that before you start learning Angular or JQuery, you should have basic knowledge of JavaScript without any extras. Once you get a good command of JavaScript, get some practice and move on to JQuery. And then, move to Angular and you'll notice the differences.
