If you plan on creating an AngularJS web based application, you should familiarize yourself with Protractor. This program specifically works to test AngularJS based applications by running tests on a real browser. By running an application through these tests, Protractor views the site from a user’s perspective to troubleshoot.

AngularJS applications use HTML terminology with some extensions. These extensions utilize the beneficial aspects of HTML vocabulary for static documents while altering it to also work in dynamic environments. Therefore, web applications created with AngularJS allow for developments and encourage readability. Protractor then compliments AngularJS in order to best prepare your apps for users.
