Together with standalone components, the Angular team has introduced the so-called standalone APIs. They provide a simple solution for library setup and do not require Angular modules.

Tauri provides a number of interfaces to lower-level systems, like file access, and makes these interfaces available to the user interface in a web view via JS APIs that send and receive messages across the IPC.
Module federation greatly simplifies the implementation of microfrontends. However, it is — to some extent — linked to webpack. This is not a major issue in the short term, and possibly also in the medium term, because webpack is currently the most popular build tool for web technologies, with over 20 million downloads.
After an extensive testing phase, the final version of TypeScript 5 implements incompatible changes. However, disregarding the new decorator implementation, these should have manageable effects in practice. In this article, we’ll take a look at what’s new in TypeScript 5 and what’s changed.
