What is Angular 7?

Angular 7 is a JavaScript (actually a TypeScript based open-source full-stack web application) framework which makes you able to create reactive Single Page Applications (SPAs). Angular 7 is completely based on components. It consists of several components which forms a tree structure with parent and child components. Angular's versions beyond 2+ are generally known as Angular only. The very first version Angular 1.0 is known as AngularJS.

"Angular is a complete rewrite of AngularJS by the same team that built AngularJS."

What is Single Page Application (SPA)?

A single page application is a web application or a website which provides users a very fluid, reactive and fast experience similar to a desktop application. It contains menu, buttons and blocks on a single page and when a user clicks on any of them; it dynamically rewrites the current page rather than loading entire new pages from a server. That's the reason behind its reactive fast speed.

AngularJS is a JavaScript-based open-source front-end web framework. Angular is a TypeScript-based open-source full-stack web application framework.
AngularJS uses the concept of scope or controller. Instead of scope and controller, Angular uses hierarchy of components as its primary architectural characteristic.

AngularJS is a simple JavaScript file which is used with HTML pages and doesn't support the features of a server-side programming language. Angular uses of Microsoft's TypeScript language, which provides Class-based Object Oriented Programming, Static Typing, Generics etc. which are the features of a server-side programming language.
AngularJS doesn't support dynamic loading of the page. Angular supports dynamic loading of the page.
