AngularJS was a framework of much developer’s interest but 10 years is a long period to make the developers wait for the next version. Persistent performance issues, complicated architecture, absence of new features, lack of resources, and a fading community were the last nails to the coffin.
AngularJS will go out of support in 2019 along with your application built in the framework. With no official upgrade to look forward, you can either migrate the app or abandon it when time comes.
Your AngularJS applications after the end of the Long Term Support (LTS) will be exposed to security risks and vulnerabilities with no active developer community to fix those, and that.
End of support will make AngularJS developers to switch their career path to a newer technology as well and you will have a hard time finding a developer to maintain your applications in AngularJS.
Vue takes the best of AngularJS and replaces the worst with some great alternatives. Therefore, Vue has what you love about Angular plus some great features borrowed from other leading frameworks, including ReactJS.
The success of an open-source project is decided by the size of the community and their commitment towards the project. Fortunately, Vue.js has all the indicators of a successful project.
With a rich collection of libraries and set of tools facilitating development, Vue.js world has everything a developer needs, including Vuex for state management and vue-routing for routing.
Vue.js’s syntaxs are quite similar to that of AngularJS. Take for an instance, while AngularJS has v-if, Vue.js has ng-if, which makes AngularJS to Vue.js migration more approachable.
Although not the fastest, Vue is faster than most JS frameworks and libraries around, including Angular (v2 and above) and React. For high performance single page applications, choose Vue.
Your developers can use existing HTML templates of the AngularJS application in Vue.js after little tweaks. They just need to modify the directives as per Vue.js standards and are good to go. Who says migrations are difficult?
Data-binding allows Vue.js developers to manipulate or assign values to HTML attributes, change the stylesheets, allocate classes and also bind directives. All in all, your AngularJS developers will right at home.
Computed properties help listen to the changes in the User Interface (UI) elements and carry the necessary calculations with utmost precision. It also saves the Vue.js developers from additional coding.
Watchers track data changes for instance a new input value and developers don’t need to add surplus event trackers. Watchers make the code simple to maintain and fast to render, making your web apps more manageable.
Methods alter a component’s state in response to an event regardless the instance data is mutated or not. Methods take arguments and are devoid of any dependencies, giving your web app a faster way to reach your audience.
Long-term support for AngularJS will conclude in mid-2021, which will expose your AngularJS application to security threats and zero-day vulnerabilities, limit its community, and deprive it from modern features.
