JQuery vs. Angular: Ad Astra per Aspera

Nowadays, we often come across the question ‘which is better: Angular or jQuery?’, which is frequently asked by those who have just started learning ropes of the IT world. Well, the stranger the question is, the more interesting it is for the K&C team to spell everything out for you.

Incorrect Question

To find out which is better: Angular or jQuery, let’s define what both are in general.


jQuery is a Javascript library, which gives you to get a simple way to access to certain elements on the website (DOM elements) and control them.


Angular is a JavaScript framework based on TypeScript. It is designed to render the whole application on the client’s side. It includes something called jQLite, which is a simplified version of jQuery.


And at this point, let’s stop.



As you might have guessed, it is a little bit weird to compare a library and a framework. The only appropriate way to mention jQuery and Angular is to review them with a historical perspective.

Back to the History

In the beginning, there was JavaScript, then to structure the code, the jQuery library appeared, and after, to attain perfection the framework Angular came. And just after that, everyone went crazy and decided that it would be okay to compare a framework to a library (just like saying it’s ok to compare TV and radio; just because both need electricity doesn’t make them similar!).


Angular and jQuery are from different time periods, and each of them is good if applied in a particular environment. So let’s look at them to see how the history of development has evolved, constantly providing us with better approaches to the creation of web applications.

The Copper Age

We should understand that jQuery was created in a time (2006) with an acute need to make writing JavaScript easier. It was a good step toward replacing something like Flash or Shockwave and other obsolete technologies that used to exist but weren’t very efficient.


jQuery emerged when there were not so many requirements for web applications. jQuery was designed as a library with the aim of DOM manipulation in the browser. Back in the old days, jQuery was a revolution and was an absolute must skill if you wanted to get hired as a web developer.



However, today jQuery is just a library, and by today's standards, a low-level library. And these kinds of things are not suitable for creation of modern web applications. Nothing prevents you from using jQuery or a pure DOM / API standard to implement a particular low-level task, but writing the entire application and performing further maintenance by just using jQuery is very difficult.

The Bronze Age

We can associate the emergence of HTML5 (2014) with the appearance of single-page applications. This event created new requirements for the development process. And at this point, developers started using Angular, Backbone, and Ember.


Speaking of Angular, it gave us the ability to write an application, the entire front-end of the app, and map it into a back-end system very simply. This framework has made building applications much faster and more convenient.



Angular is an excellent framework for building web applications. It has thorough documentation with examples provided. However, if the developer has never before encountered the frameworks like Angular and mostly used libraries like jQuery, it may be difficult for them to change their way of thinking.

The Iron Age

This is the era of Angular, React, and Vue.js., whose usage while writing any app is a must. The latest trend is server-side applications, which are quite applicable when it comes to SEO efficiency. That is, a server performs all manipulations and gives a final result to the client side. This makes sense for SEO indexation.

However, single-page applications still hold their own, and are used equally often. Today developers choose either a single-page app or server-side app, depending on the goal they wich to achieve. If you do not understand where you are and where to go, the K&C team can provide niche experts for a given period of time to build a basis for your project.

Conclusion

So let’s continue our discussion. The K&C team hopes that now you no longer need the answer to the question ‘which is better: Angular or jQuery?’ Each has its place in the sun.


There are still many projects that are created with the help of jQuery. We even see new versions of the library from time to time. Angular, on the other hand, has the answer to your every desire.



The world of IT is rather volatile. What was considered a technological miracle yesterday is today only a legacy. Do not be afraid of working in changing conditions, choose the right tools to make your way.
