AngularJS, JQuery and HTML: The UI Layer
Interactive Data Display
What is AngularJS?
AngularJS is the best MCV framework with which to interact with your APIs developed in your ServiceStack layer. To put it simply, AngularJS is the middleman between your standard HTML and the API data integration end-points you've created in ServiceStack. Additionally, Angular JS is extensible and can be modified or replaced to suit development workflow or functional feature needs.
What is JQuery?
How Does This Work With HTML?
HTML's greatest limitation, as mentioned above, is that it's a static page of coded text. In order to add functionality, interactivity, pull data and more, HTML needs JQuery and Angular JS. AngularJS connects to the API data endpoints, retrieves the desired data and displays it in a defined way on the HTML page. JQuery then takes this organized data and shows it to the end user (your ecommerce platform or website visitors) in a way that's both visually appealing and stimulating.
These three scripts working together constitutes the user interface (shortened as the UI). Angular JS connects to the back-end, jQuery beautifies it, and HTML renders it for display to the end-user. The three combine to form a robust, adaptable and easy to manage interface for powerful web applications that utilize native data and custom functionality.
