Drupal, as stated earlier, is a very popular CMS which is the best option for medium and large-scale websites and applications. However, with the release of its latest version, Drupal 8, Drupal Specialists prefer to call it as a Content Management Framework (CMF). It is secure and can efficiently handle large amount of data and create any functionality with flexibility. It is scalable and extendable to support the growing needs of your business. It is SEO-friendly and would get you more organic traffic. It is also open-source with a rich community of developers creating new modules, polishing the existing ones to perfection and fixing any upcoming issues.

AngularJS is a very popular, lightweight yet scalable front-end framework and it is based on JavaScript and HTML5. Web app development specialists love it for it easily fulfills their aim to build a rich-featured web app incredibly fast. It is open-source, supported by Google and massive community of developers who diligently work towards its constant improvement.

Now let us delve deep to find out how the combination of AngularJS and Drupal is even more impressive and how they are creating a perfect alliance between frontend and backend while creating dynamic web applications. This technological fusion has brought our Drupal Specialists and AngularJS Specialists on the same page. Drupal works as the backend data source whereas AngularJS shoulders the theming or presentation part. The latter significantly reduces the amount of code AngularJS specialists need to write for your application and consequently renders faster web app development. It also efficiently does the two-way data binding and isolates the application logic from the user interface layer being an MVC (Model-View-Controller) framework.

By now, you must have grown curious to know where exactly this perfect technological match would be applicable. Well, in various interactive elements or dynamic widgets wherein real-time updates or calculations are required without reloading a page e.g. web carts, weather forecasts or different types of listings. If you have an idea to build web application on any of the aforementioned areas then we have the technology and resources to give wings to your idea.
