View the scope and usage of the project it need to be very scalable and modular to ease the maintenance, customisation and even the performance. However another important point of this project is the UI component consistency for the Community App to be more user friendly and customisable. During this Summer of Code Program I will be ensuring the following  point to be implemented in the next version of Mifos X platform.

  1. Update the AngularJS version to 1.5.x
