12 Best Angular JS Frameworks

Application development is a niche field with tremendous scope and opportunities. Today, there are a range of technologies available for developing modern websites, apps and more. As we are aware, a framework is an important part of application development. AngularJS is one such framework which is gaining popularity for its potential to simplify application development. AngularJS is a MVW JavaScript framework maintained by Google and a community of enthusiastic developers.

Are you confused about choosing the right framework for developing your next AngularJS application? There are a range of front-end frameworks supporting AngularJS. They come with built-in features that aid you in the application development process. Few days ago we have started with basics of AngularJs programming, but in today’s post I have come up with a list of popular AngularJS frameworks which are suitable for development of AngularJS apps. Alright, so allow me to present this list of Top 12 AngularJS Frameworks.

1) Ionic
Ionic is a powerful front-end framework optimized for AngularJS for developing mobile applications. The framework uses AngularJS directives to support mobile components, tools and gestures made up of HTML5 and CSS3, thus offering rich user interfaces (UIs).

It is optimized for AngularJS and Bootstrap and supports powerful libraries like fastclick.js and overthrow.js. The framework offers essential mobile components, such as sidebars, overlays, switches, scrollable areas and more. With Mobile Angular UI, you can design a responsive, mobile user-interface as well as convert desktop web applications to mobile applications.

3) Supersonic
Supersonic is a robust user interface framework (UI) for developing hybrid mobile applications. The framework integrates with any REST API (Application Programming Interface) and allows data interaction/modification in the backend. With Supersonic, one can design API-connected mobile applications for iOS and Android.

4) LumX
LumX is a fully-responsive front-end framework based on Google material design guidelines and optimized for AngularJS. Lumx is built with SAAS, Neat and Bourbon providing customizable application design for smooth functionality and cool features.

5) Mean.IO

Using MEAN stack, you can design dynamic single/multi page hybrid web applications. Ghost (a blogging platform) and trakit.me (personal activity tracking software application) are built using MEAN stack.

6) Radian
Radian is a powerful AngularJS framework based on AMD structure (Asynchronous Module Definitions). It is ideal for writing and deploying high-performance web applications. Radian supports several file types, such as Coffeescript, SAAS, JADE and vanilla JavaScript files. It integrates with Yeoman, a scaffolding framework and Protractor, an AngularJS testing framework.


7) Angular UI Bootstrap
Angular UI Bootstrap is built on top of the front-end framework called Bootstrap. The framework contains a set of native AngularJS directives based on Bootstrap HTML and CSS components. Angular UI Bootstrap offers several directives, such as carousel, alert, date picker, dropdown, time picker, buttons and more.

8) Angular Foundation

In Protractor, a browser is controlled using the JSON Webdriver Wire Protocol, which performs actions like finding and interacting with DOM elements in an asynchronous manner. Hence, it allows running tests against an application running in a real browser just like a user would natively do.


AngularJS is a relatively new technology improving every day. A lot of AngularJS frameworks will be developed and made available in the near future. Till then, you can choose any framework from this list depending upon your project requirements. These frameworks differ with the kind of features they offer. You can use them if you want to trigger any specific functionality or infuse any particular feature in to your AngularJS website or apps.
