Reason for removing the See Also section[edit]

I've just removed the See Also section from this article. It linked to Backbone, Ember and Meteor, but as usual with such sections it didn't explain the criteria for inclusion/exclusion. I know these decisions are difficult to pin down without expressing any bias (why Backbone if not Knockout? why Meteor if not Firebase? what is a library vs a framework vs a full stack?) so I suggest we leave this section empty until there is a satisfactory Comparison of Javascript MV* Frameworks article to which we can link. Any objections? - Pointillist (talk) 00:13, 1 June 2013 (UTC)

Attempting to add the following: Directives - Teach the browser new tricks. Someone said that HTML 6 goes under the name of Angular b/c of HTML 6 which may explain just how powerful AngularJS's framework is perceived. Three phases of the bootstrapper.

  1. Wait for the DOM to load
  2. Create a new Injector
  3. Compile Service is like compiling in C or C++. It walks the DOM and locates all the directives like "ng-app".
  4. Link Phase - The link phase attaches all the directives to scope.

Need to cull the Releases list[edit]

The Releases list fails WP:NOTCHANGELOG, I'm afraid:

Changelogs, release histories or release notes. An article about a product may include a prose history of its development and major improvements. Tables or lists of changes should be avoided; instead, significant changes should be merged into – and contextualised in – the product's history. Note that, in addition to being unencyclopedic, lists of changes and releases are also unsuitable for inclusion in Wikipedia articles as they're usually drawn – often verbatim – from primary sources.

I image we'll end up with a short list of major releases, with the key differences summarised. We'll need reliable third party sources for those. Any idea who has covered this who isn't a Google employee or contributor to AngularJS? - Pointillist (talk) 18:54, 19 September 2013 (UTC)

So... it's been three months. Does nobody object if I simply delete the entire Releases list section? - Pointillist (talk) 14:41, 23 December 2013 (UTC)
As a random passer-by I object because of the awesomeness of the codenames. One does not simply delete awesomeness. 89.160.94.50 (talk) 15:47, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
As another passer-by I do not object. Please go ahead. Having pages over pages of irrelevant dates and version numbers is not helpful. I came here to get an idea how angularJS evolved and how relevant it was in its early years but instead I'm confronted with this monster list of nothing? - Giszmo (talk) 19:09, 9 December 2014 (UTC)

Code sample[edit]

Should we include a code sample/examples (as on JavaScript#Simple_examples, JQuery#Usage_styles)? I found a simple hello world on http://viralpatel.net/blogs/angularjs-introduction-hello-world-tutorial/ --Aprillion 18:27, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Go ahead but I find it does AngularJS no justice to not show controllers. It's an MVC framework and showing only a V with a bit of M is meh. --Giszmo (talk) 19:14, 9 December 2014 (UTC)
