AngularJS is a open source, cross platform, javascript framework. It is used to develop single page applications (SPA). A SPA is when resources are loaded and added dynamically as needed and the page is not reloaded. The first version (1.0) of AngularJS was released in 2012 and was in development since 2009. It follows the model view controller (MVC) idea.1

The main point with AngularJS is you have directives: ng-app, ng-model (binding between the view, html, and the scope, i.e. controller), etc. and expressions: {{ }} will be replaced by the value of the expression.

The current version of AngularJS, as of writing, is 1.2.24 static-levitation (2014-09-09) which can be found here:
