Angular 2 is more than just the next version of a popular front-end framework. Angular 2 takes all the best parts of AngularJS and improves them. It's a powerful and feature-complete framework that you can use to build fast, professional web apps.
Built with TypeScript in mind, Angular 2 takes advantage of futuristic language features such as decorators and interfaces, which make coding faster and easier. On top of that, Angular 2 is also a great platform for building cross-platform mobile apps.
If you loved AngularJS, or you want to get on board the next big thing, Angular 2 might be the framework for you. Angular 2 is a complete solution, so you won’t have to worry about configuring tools, or figuring out the essential libraries for core functionality—Angular 2 is ready for building powerful web apps, out of the box.

4. Ionic 2
Ionic is one of the most popular cross-platform mobile app frameworks—and one of the most popular projects on GitHub. By letting web developers use their existing skill-sets to make apps for mobile devices, Ionic has enabled a whole generation of apps.
One of the reasons for Ionic's success is that it builds on the popular Angular web framework. With the release of Angular 2, the Ionic team has rewritten their framework from the ground up. In Get Started With Ionic 2, Envato Tuts+ instructor Reggie Dawson will teach you all about the Ionic framework and will show you how to build a mobile app from scratch.
