You’ll Want an ES6-based FrameworkThe transition to ES6 introduces a challenge to all existing frameworks. When using ES6 becomes practical, frameworks that take advantage of its features such as classes and “native” modules would look a lot more attractive than those that do not. Angular 2.0 is AngularJS’s team response to that challenge. It is a framework that is based on ES6 and that aims to take advantage of the new features introduced in ES6. A large part of the reason Angular 2.0 looks so different is precisely that it makes use of those new features. Other frameworks that compete with Angular 1.x today will also look quite different once they leave ES5 behind.It is worth noting here, a good deal of Angular 1.3 is a polyfill for the missing features of today’s JavaScript. This will no longer be necessary when such features become available in JavaScript.
