JavaScript is a language written for websites to run in the client’s browser.

Angular is a hip JavaScript framework which is made for building large, single-page web applications.AngularJS is a full frontend MVC framework for JavaScript web applications. It was built at Google and provides a way to quickly build large, single-page web applications. Like jQuery, it is included in a page using the <script> tag and is itself written in JavaScript. Unlike jQuery, it is meant to be a framework upon which an entire web application is built. It actually includes a minimal version of jQuery by default.

What about Directives in AngularJS?

AngularJS directives are extended HTML attributes with the prefix ng-. The ng-app directive initializes an AngularJS application. The ng-model directive binds the value of HTML controls to application data.
