On the client-side to manage UI component metadata and application data uses a stateful client and stateless server architecture that relies on JavaScript.

5. Live Data Binding and Deep Linking:

The data binding is the synchronization between the model and the view in Angular JS. The model updates as well whenever data in the view changes and the view reflects the changes in real-time when data in the model changes.

This happens makes sure that the model and the view are updated at all times immediately and automatically. And when users click on a certain link, they are taken to a specific location within the app, then landing on the home screen.

This method is known as deep linking. Since the users are carried directly to the customized space, they don’t have to spend time searching for the content marketing on the ad. This increases the probability of retaining customer’s interest in the app.

Another awesome feature is that we will never get view state errors while working with the Angular Js.

9. Avoid Server Calls:

The main advantage of Salesforce Lightning is that we can avoid many server calls while working with lightning components. The reason behind this is the JS controller using which we can manipulate the data into the controller and display as per our need.

10. Faster Development:

Empowers teams to work faster with out-of-the-box components that function seamlessly with desktop and mobile devices. An app built with components is facilitated the parallel design and improving overall development efficiency.
