Data Binding - Data-binding provides automatic updating of the view whenever the model changes and vice-versa. The developer does not have to worry about DOM manipulation.

Controller - Angular lets you express DOM behavior in a clean readable form without the usual boilerplate of updating the DOM, registering callbacks or watching model changes.

Plain JavaScript - Unlike other frameworks, there is no need to inherit from proprietary types in order to wrap the model in accessors methods. Angular models are ordinary JavaScript objects. This makes your code easy to test, maintain, reuse, and again free from boilerplate.

Deep Linking - Angular facilitates deep linking and combines the benefits of deep linking with desktop app-like behavior.

Form Validation - Angular lets you declare the validation rules of the form without having to write JavaScript code.

Server Communication - Angular provides built-in services on top of XHR as well as various other backends using third party libraries. Promises further simplify your code by handling asynchronous return of data. In this example, we use the AngularFire library to wire up a Firebase backend to a simple Angular app.

Reusable Components - Directives let you invent new HTML syntax, specific to your application. Through directives, the user can create reusable components to hide complex DOM structure, CSS, and behavior.

Localization - Angular's locale-aware filters and stemming directives give you building blocks to make your application available in all locales.

Embedability - Angular works great with other technologies. Add as much or as little of Angular to an existing page as you like. Many other frameworks require full commitment. This page has multiple Angular applications embedded in it. Because Angular has no global state multiple apps can run on a single page without the use of iframes. We encourage you to view-source and look around.

Injectability - The dependency injection in Angular allows you to describe how your application is wired in a declarative manner. This means that your application needs no main() method which is usually an unmaintainable mess. Dependency injection is also a core to Angular. This means that any component which does not fit your needs can easily be replaced.

Testability - Angular was designed from ground up to be testable. It encourages behavior-view separation, comes pre-bundled with mocks, and takes full advantage of dependency injection. It also comes with end-to-end scenario runner which eliminates test flakiness by understanding the inner workings of Angular.
