AngularJS Is on JS framework, and we can say its like HTML on steroids, in a good way. Google is playing with some of the shortcomings of HTML as the platform of its software which can be concluded as the lack of adaptability and meaning in the names of the elements, the formless nature of HTTP and its constant need for circulating the data are some of the problems which Google considered on improving and leaving you free to amplify and customize. Google’s been very careful in doing so.
This system has a superb feature called MVC framework by which the two parts of an app is connected which helps you in designing, so you just need to bring up the models and controllers in your tags. It basically enables you to make a library of components, which is there in your apps where you can customize HTML tags.
Its a worth inspecting if you are keen in amplifying HTML and making your gain more expressive and distinct.

By developing the Scripts, the final piece of the Google Docs puzzle has been put on the right place. The arrival of Google Drive was the amazing news for the once who are using using Google Docs. It helps you to share and synchronize your work very easily, despite the fact that it has a stupendously allows very less storage of only 5GB to finish your craving.
By combining the Google Apps scripting, the developers will be able to create a unique apps which can connect with the contents of an authorized drive, and then you can publish this to the Chrome Web Store.
The good use of this app is that the scripts run on the client side and not on the developer’s account, which makes it easier to notify as the changes made by the developer will be seen and used by the subscribers instantly. The scripts are independent and that’s why its more general as anyone can use it easily. Google has this as its keen idea of making the environment of the scripts in a feasible web app launcher.
As Google’s Docs are already in cloud, which makes the data held in their tables and cells become more user-friendly and to make more use of it. By the Google App Script, we can do a lot more than just share the access of the documents but also now we can turn it to a great experience. It includes a convoluted structure but also has a known syntax, levers the Docs and it makes it easier for the user to create an environment of its own to interact. The Google Apps Script has all the required tools you need by using Google Docs to create a HTML/ CSS/ JS app.
It has a very convincing way for user to approach this app of producing apps as its based on the Google’s cloud service but the API’s included will still take for user to get use to it.[divider]

You specially the content creators must have thought that it would be so nice if we would be able to edit the content directly in place and on the page itself. It would make your work so very easy. So here is a good news for you as the first step towards this goal is been taken by Create.js by introducing a new app which include RDF, a meta-data tags to give the editing tools a hold into the pages it combine with. This is not a ideal thing for Create.js to provide holds like: <div property=”content”> but the result which we get is much more in a natural access.
This makes the work of CMS- dependent developers very easy, as there’s no need for the client to know if there exists a back end.
If you want to install Create.js and work on it, then you need to plan for it ahead, but it would be worth the effort as this app is very useful.
