Why you should use .NET Core with Angular

Neither the JavaScript technology stack, nor the feature overlap of views and routing, should be a cause of cultural shock. There are several productive alternatives to building an application with Angular and ASP.NET Core. Your option of structuring the app’s client and server architecture depends on factors such as application size, mobile needs, and code sharing desires. An ASP.NET Core application using Angular can be designed as an all-in-one monolithic project, a server and web client project or even as a multi-client project.
By using .NET technology and Angular, a developer can write a powerful and controlled web application that fulfills business needs indefinitely. Projects that involve highly complex architecture demand frequent yet seamless testing and build deployments. These are essential elements to lower downtime and deliver excellent experiences for end users.
Microsoft built .NET Core to make modern application development easier and efficient. .NET Core makes it possible to build and deploy .NET based server web applications across any of the major platforms available. On the other hand, front-end web is evolving very rapidly. The tooling to build front-end applications is getting mature to meet developers’ needs. This brings up a challenge to the server platforms to support the front-end ecosystem inside their boundaries.
Angular can also detect when the component data changes, and then automatically re-render the view to reflect that change.
Angular templates that support .NET Core
The ASP.NET team has built Angular and React templates to support development of front-end based applications with .NET Core as the backend. That template also offers hosting of both the application types into a single one. Therefore, it is useful to build and publish applications as a single unit. Angular templates provide commands, which are useful in;

  • generation of applications
  • adding different code blocks into applications
  • adding unit test spec files
  • run tests
  • run the application in development mode
  • generate build files to deploy

Cheap Deployment
Even though Windows still dominates the desktop market, Linux is the market leader when it comes to enterprise servers and the cloud. As you may know .NET Core is free, open source, cross platform and runs basically everywhere. It is better to run web application of .NET Core with open source Angular on Linux platform.

Deployment of the application on Linux Server is more popular than Windows Server over the last few years because of lower price, ease of deploying on a large scale, easier to customize, and open source software. Linux is a Unix-based system, which provides powerful, reliable, and stable environment. Linux is also secure; it restricts influence from the external sources.
Visual Studio 2017 allows developers to package the web application to run on Linux since it allows the building of a self-contained application. This application turns out cheaper for enterprises compared to the alternative and does not need a .NET SDK to be installed on a server.
