Storing Configuration Data in SharePoint Lists

I have stored settings in applications built on SharePoint in a number of ways over the years, including SharePoint lists, the property bag and even web.config. As I have done most of the recent development using AngularJS and also had the need to store and fetch configuration values beyond simple data types, I have start using another way of storing these settings.
