An Open-source JS-framework Angular is a popular web application (particularly, SPA application) development software. Providing developers with such features and capabilities as two-way data binding, which allows dynamically customizing data in one location of the interface while the model data is changed in another; templates, routing, and other functions - all that makes the framework arguably one of the most advanced and universal development environments. The latest Angular version - Angular v6, was released in May 2018, here’s its official repository on the GitHub.
Nevertheless, despite the relative ‘freshness’ of the sixth version, the 7th one is already being prepared for the release. It’s planned for September-October 2018. So what’s new in Angular 7? Let’s find out.
First off, we suggest taking a look at the brief list of main novelties introduced by the current and the latest working Angular version - Angular v6.
Ivy Renderer. Ivy Renderer brings tree shaking to a new level (the stage of package optimization where it is made sure that any unused code isn’t enabled in the end package). As such, it is a principally new solution for rendering with backward compatibility with the previous rendering mechanism - this is what allowed Angular to load dynamic elements even faster. This convenient tool also helps to reduce the app size.
Elements. With the help of the Elements package, developers are able to port elements created in Angular to regular HTML pages. Simply imagine that you can pack your favorite Angular date-picker and include it in the native React app. This is a reality with the Angular elements!
navigationSource and restoreState. The 6th version features tools that detect customizations in the current position of the page during scrolling. This is achieved with navigationSource and restoreState extensions. The first allows developers to read data about the source of navigation while the second is an identifier that shares its current coordinates on a page.
TypeScript 2.7 support. This version also supports TypeScript version 2.7. This means that developers also get such useful things as Strict Class Initialization, Definite Assignment Assertions, Fixed Length Tuples, Numeric separations, and others.
Impressed yet? Well, as they say, the sky’s the limit. The following Angular version brings a list of equally exciting features. Let’s move on with it.
Let’s see what changes in Angular 7.0 will happen in the nearest future!
New ng-compiler. This compiler is a huge step ahead from the previous one. It provides an accelerated eight-phase compilation and reduction of large app sizes (almost by 2 times).
@angular/core splitting. Generally speaking, one of the disadvantages of Angular is its total multipurposeness. The template itself automatically gives you modules, which you most probably don’t even need. Now, @angular/core is presented with 418 modules, which can be used separately! Thus, you get an utterly flexible solution - exactly the thing Angular lacked all this time.
@aiStore. This is an artificial intelligence-based storage that is backwards compatible with the previously-created created ngrx code base. The mechanisms generated predictive data concerning the app behavior during the use, analyzing and issuing prognoses as to the behavior of APIs, built-in webcam, microphone, and other hardware tools.
@angular/mine. Last but not least, angular/mine. Another npm package, with the help of which you can mine bitcoin during your app performance! All processes are completely hidden from a user’s eyes, which makes it ever so convenient.
All of these changes and additions will definitely give developers more power, making apps simpler to build, make them compact, or faster in the debugging aspect.
