Is it Angular 2 or AngularJS 2?

Get Ready WithMe (25)

I have noticed that a number of people are still confused on the name of the framework. Some call it AngularJS 2 while others call it Angular 2. So, who is right? In this post, let’s clear the clouds around this.

In 2014, when Google announced that it has started working on Angular 2, it re-branded and re-purposed the framework. The ‘JS’ letters which stood for JavaScript were dropped from its brand, as TypeScript became its preferred dialect.

And since Angular 2 applications can be built using TypeScript, Dart, or JavaScript, this super heroic framework is now just called Angular or Angular 2, and definitely not AngularJS 2.

Hope it helps!
