When it comes to the development of the client-side (front-end) mobile and desktop web apps or single-page applications (SPAs), Angular is known to be the most prevalent JavaScript framework and platform. Angular 8 is the latest version released by the Angular community. The older version of Angular can be easily updated to the latest version which is Angular 8.

Angular 8:

Angular 8 is written in TypeScript and is compiled into JavaScript, and is thus known as an open-source, client-side TypeScript based JavaScript framework, which is similar to its previous versions, but with some extensive features and is used to create dynamic web applications.
