Angular Component Library Comparison
by Cebrian, Michael Christopher, M.S., Villanova University, 2017, 46; 10281632
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to aide web developers in choosing which component library to integrate with their web based Angular project. Angular is a new platform and many of the existing component libraries are still under active development, or were only recently released, making it difficult for developers to know which component library would be the best fit for their project. This study reviews many factors which would influence a developer’s decision on which library to use including: the size of the community, number of components available, quality of documentation, payload size increase, and load time performance. This study proves that the most popular projects aren’t the most performant and are lacking key features, while some much less popular libraries are performing better and have a better set of components. Developers looking for the best combination of performance and features should consider ngx-bootstrap or Angular Material Design Lite.
