A Comparison: AngularJS Vs EmberJS
There is always an ongoing debate between which is a better framework- angular.js or ember.js. But, to me, the focus should be on “what kind of application we are developing”, that brings us to the question “Angular or Ember, which is better? What you think?” Both of them have their own advantages and disadvantages.
Before passing a verdict and coming to an opinion, it is important to be familiar with both the frameworks.
Let’s go for an overview
Earlier it was called as SproutCore MVC framework. It was developed by Yehuda Katz in 2011. Ember uses Handlebars as its template engine. Ember provides a rich object model and it has declarative data binding. Templates are automatically updated by the help of HandlebarsJS.

Let’s check which framework has faster growing popularity by the help of Google Trends.
Now let’s conclude the topic, Every framework has its own advantages and disadvantages. We have to check the requirement specs of the project and the adaptability of the framework on the requirement. But from my experience, it seems to be Angular which is very easy to learn even for a person who don’t have much knowledge in MVC and who has only basic knowledge in HTML. Angular reduces the length of the code compared with Ember.
