    High-Load Websites and Applications Built with Angular

  • High-Load Websites and Applications Developed Using Angular
  • Will Angular fit in my new project?
  • Angular has come a long way since it was first launched in 2009. One of the top choices for developing feature-rich applications, the powerful framework provides broad functionality, fast application development, and mature methodology. Trusted to handle high loads, Angular is the framework of choice for market leaders like Google, Paypal, and Forbes.

    The global community of developers is fond of Angular, and for good reason. This Google-supported framework has actually revolutionized front-end development in terms of performance. Choosing Angular for your project is a sure-fire way to release high-performance web products.

    Then again, popular doesn’t mean easy-to-work-with. Angular requires decent engineering knowledge and is usually the number one choice for large and complex projects, compared to other JavaScript frameworks.

    But don’t worry. Having years of experience with Angular.js and its succeeding versions, SECL Group built dozens of projects with this framework, including enterprise-grade ones. Let’s take a look at global companies that share our fascination with Angular and the websites they built using it.

    High-Load Websites and Applications Developed Using Angular


    Google incorporated Angular into Gmail in 2009, turning it into a single-page app that provides uninterrupted experience. Unlike multi-page websites, single-page Gmail can render data on the front end and allows for offline access to cached data.

    The most commonly used email service in the world, Gmail%20has%20come%20a%20long,of%20Google's%20G%20Suite%20lineup." target="_blank" rel="nofollow noopener noreferrer">Gmail has more than 1.5 billion users—a testament to the power of Angular. You can trust this framework to support a huge user-oriented app.

    Why Angular?

    • Simple interface
    • Seamless user experience
    • Initial load of up to several seconds, after which emails and tabs can be opened without delay
    • Once loaded, Gmail content remains available offline
    • The out-of-the-box Angular module enables the integration of Google Hangouts into Angular apps

    Other projects built with Angular 

    The list does not end there. The Angular framework is also used to build Google Cloud Platform, AdWords, HBO’s mobile version, Sony’s RS3 YouTube app, Indiegogo website, BMWs Find a Dealer and Driveaway Price Calculator, Xbox Live, Telegram, CrunchBase, and many other websites and applications.

    Here’s a quick list of the websites that use Angular:

    Offered with a wide range of features, Angular has high out-of-the-box usability. It provides ready-made components that allow teams to scale projects quickly and easily. With TypeScript flagging the most common errors during development, the burden of debugging is greatly reduced. It’s no wonder more and more developers and companies are choosing Angular.

    Will Angular fit in my new project?

    Consider using the Angular framework for the following types of products:

    • Enterprise systems
    • Web services, especially the ones featuring personal accounts
    • Single-page web applications
    • E-commerce stores and marketplaces experience

    Angular comes with its set of benefits, so once you decide on using it, you’ll get:

    • Fast code writing
    • Cleaner code
    • Code reusability
    • Seamless updates
    • Quick testing of specific parts of the application
    • Two-way data binding that instantly reflects state changes in the user interface
    • High performance
    • Simple templates
    • Good Google indexing

    As far as the disadvantages of Angular go, it inherited the indexing issue that’s actually typical for most JavaScript frameworks. We’re talking about the so-called partial indexing or two-waves of indexing. The problem is that not all search engine crawlers can process JavaScript code successfully or immediately.

    That’s why web developers use rendering solutions, and our particular recommendation would be SSR (server-side rendering). SECL Group’s engineers apply this approach to every Angular project for rapid indexing and a fast load of the initial page.

    The bottom line

    We truly believe that Angular has become a blue-chip technology for enterprise platforms when high performance and speed make a difference. Sure, nobody’s perfect, but Angular came really close. Even its indexing issues can be easily solved by the engineers who’ve learned the ropes on multiple Angular projects. Like the ones, we at SECL Group have on our web development teams.

    Creating Angular-based solutions is one of SECL Group’s main offerings. We can boast a large team of JavaScript specialists that have delivered numerous sophisticated, enterprise-grade projects using Angular. The clients appreciate working with us thanks to our engineers’ ability to tackle various challenges.

    Whether you’re working on a startup or an enterprise project, our experienced developers can help you out. So don’t hesitate to join our roster of esteemed clients that include Kia Motors, Danone, and The Lego Group. Contact us for more information.
