JavaScript AngularJS Basics (1.x) Getting Started with Angular Angular, an Overview

Can AngularJS be used solely to upload data to a database?

Can we use Angular alone to upload content to a database such as phpMyAdmin? If not, which language is best recommended to learn? I already know PHP, but am not sure if we can use them together, or if it would be considered good practice?

Hi Jay,

Not on its own. AngularJS is a frontend framework, you would need to use a server-side language for the actual database interaction (as well a database language like SQL).

There are many ways to achieve it, one way would be to use a combination of Angular and PHP, another would be to use Node.JS and Sequelize.

See here for an example of using Angular + PHP together.

Hope this helps :)

Thank you James Anwyl
