The new roadmap includes necessary maintenance work, as well as a few features that bring a breath of fresh air. In general, there is a focus on evolutionary further development. This is very much in line with what large enterprise projects need.
As a maintenance release, Angular 10 mainly includes bug fixes and tooling enhancements. For example, a new strict mode uses stricter compiler checks and the CLI now warns when using CommonJS bundles that are difficult to optimize.
Angular 9 brought the long-awaited Ivy compiler, which the team worked on for about two years. Now, work on version 10 was used to clean up. So, this is primarily a maintenance release with numerous bug fixes and internal improvements. Nevertheless, Angular 10 also has a few nice additions to offer. This article is all about those.
If you want to upgrade an existing application to Angular 10, all you have to do is run ng update:
ng update @angular/cli @angular/core
Will Deno make everything better and replace Node.js?
The term Progressive Web App (PWA) was coined in 2015. Since 2018 PWAs can be installed on all relevant operating systems and can also be executed offline. However, there is still a certain difference in functionality between PWAs and their native counterparts. With Project Fugu, the gap should continue to shrink.
Real-time is an interesting topic to consider these days. The demand for real-time functionality to be implemented in modern web applications has grown tremendously. The sooner you have the data, the quicker you can react and make decisions. Thus, the chance for higher profits is huge. In this article we will discuss how to implement this real-time feature in your Angular application using WebSocket and RxJS.
Writing frontend applications is a complex process, it involves lots of difficult scenarios, a myriad of tools and, of course, browser support. But leaving that aside, keeping a high-quality codebase that is maintainable over the long term is just as complicated. In this article, we aim to give you a list of the most villainous coding smells you might run into when writing Angular apps, and the respective solution or alternative.
