The State of Angular: ng-conf 2019

The Angular community is special. I know all tech communities think that, but it’s true with Angular. The Angular community prides itself on being welcoming, collaborative, and inclusive.

Auth0’s Sam Julien and Kim Maida spoke at ng-conf 2019 in Salt Lake City, Utah. You can find all of the videos on YouTube and check out my central repository for the speakers’ slides.

The biggest symbol of the Angular community is ng-conf, the largest Angular conference in the world. It happens every spring in Salt Lake City, Utah at the Grand America Hotel. This conference is organized by community leaders, not by Google, and each year strives to be better, more educational, more diverse and inclusive, and, yes, more fun! It is also the time when big news is announced by both Google and community project leaders.

Because ng-conf essentially serves as the “State of the Union” for Angular, I’m going to arrange this article differently than usual. Instead of going chronologically day by day, I’m going to organize all of the talks by topic. That way you can catch up on all the news for one subject at a time. There’s a ton of information to dig into!

The Big Stuff: Angular 8, Bazel, and Ivy

Let’s look at the big news first since I know you’re dying to hear about it.

Angular 8

Angular 8 is in the release candidate (RC) phase as of this writing and should be finalized by the end of May 2019. Version 9 should be coming in Q4 of this year.

So what’s new in Angular 8? Quite a bit! One of the features I’m most excited about is differential loading. Differential loading sends a lightweight bundle with minimal polyfills to modern browsers and a bundler packed with polyfills to older browsers. This reduces download time dramatically for most users. In most cases, differential loading saves 7-20% in bundle size!

There are also many other new features coming to Angular 8:

Here are a few highlights:

  • Builders allow you to extend and customize the CLI.
  • You’ll be able to deploy to Firebase and other providers from the CLI (this is a work in progress).
  • Support for Web Workers has improved.
  • Rather than using the “magic string” syntax specific to Angular to do lazy loading, you’ll be able to use the standard <a href="https://next.angular.io/guide/deprecations#loadchildren-string-syntax" target="_blank">import()</a> syntax. You can even perform this automatically for your app with the angular-lazy-routes-fix tool.
  • Angular will now have support for the same functionality as AngularJS’s $location service. This will be a game-changer for upgrading, since teams will be able to switch to the Angular router earlier in the process.
  • The Angular team has created a simplified Getting Started Guide.

To try out Angular 8 for yourself, you can update your Angular CLI to the latest version:

npm install -g @angular/cli@next

That’s all the stuff that’s done in Angular 8 right now. I know what you’re thinking, though: “Sam, what about Bazel and Ivy!?!” Let’s take these one at a time.

Bazel

If you’re not familiar with Bazel, it’s the open source version of Google’s internal build tool called Blaze. Bazel offers all kinds of awesome functionality like support for full-stack builds, incremental builds, remote caching, and much more. It’s architected with a Linux philosophy in mind: the composition of many small tools to make it scalable and customizable.

The Angular team has been working for a few years now on a projet called ABC, or Angular Build Convergence. This is a project to make the Angular build tools the same as those used internally at Google.

So, what’s the status of this project in version 8? The addition of Bazel is an Angular Labs project that is currently in an “opt-in preview.” This means that users can add Bazel to a new or existing Angular 8 project and test out whether it works for their application. Bazel integration is mostly done, but the team wants to make sure it is fully compatible before making it the default (planned for version 9).

[“Bazel is now an opt-in preview as part of @angular 8!”](https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=“Bazel+is+now+an+opt-in+preview+as+part+of+%40angular+8!” via @auth0 http://auth0.com/blog/recap-of-state-of-angular-ng-conf-2019/ ““Bazel is now an opt-in preview as part of @angular 8!””)#### Tweet This

To do this, you can run:

npm install -g @angular/bazel
ng new --collection=@angular/bazel

To add Bazel to an existing Angular 8 application, run:

ng add @angular/bazel

Bazel support in Angular also now has a new subdomain on Angular.io so you can dig into how to get started and use Bazel.

Ivy

Okay, so what about the much anticipated Ivy? Ivy is the new renderer, a total rewrite that will include support for tree-shaking, template debugging, and much smaller bundle sizes.

As of version 8, Ivy is very close to being done. In fact, Ivy has 97% of its unit, integration, and screenshot tests passing at Google. All of the debugging features, bug fixes, memory improvements, and faster testing are also done.

(Source)

So what’s left? Mostly backwards compatibility testing. The Angular team’s goal is to make the transition to Ivy seamless for users. Right now, they need help testing Angular applications with lots of dependencies to make sure Ivy doesn’t break anything.

The goal for version 9 is for Ivy to be smaller, faster, and have better type-checking.

To test drive Ivy, first update your Angular CLI as mentioned above. Then, run the following:

ng new my-app --enable-ivy

Those are the big updates from Angular – lots of exciting stuff happening!

Talks on Angular news, Bazel, and Ivy:

RxJS, NgRx, and State Management

At ng-conf 2018, there was a broad theme of NgRx being the latest and greatest way to manage state in your Angular application. There was an entire track of the conference dedicated to NgRx and hype abounded.

Unfortunately, many developers took this to mean that NgRx was the only way to manage state in their applications, despite none of the team members claiming this. The Redux pattern is a tool for specific use cases, albeit an amazing tool!

The hype of last year combined with the general inscrutability of RxJS (which can be a huge stumbling block for folks new to Angular) meant that this year had a large focus on RxJS and state management without NgRx (though there were a few great talks on NgRx!).

I’ve broken down the talks for you by subject (no pun intended).

RxJS talks:

State management talks:

NgRx talks:

Angular Elements

Another big theme this was year was Angular Elements. Angular Elements are custom elements based on the web components SDK and are largely ready for real-world use. There are a few things that will be improved with Ivy, but many people are using them in a variety of contexts such as inside of React apps or during migration from AngularJS.

Talks on Angular Elements:

Forms, Components, and Other Angular Bits

There were also lots of talks about other topics in Angular. Don’t misinterpret that this section as being any less important than the others – it’s just a bit harder to categorize!

Talks on broad Angular stuff:

Talks on forms:

Talks on components and decorators:

Talks on change detection:

Talks on design:

Talks on schematics:

Talks on other platforms or uses:

More Fun Stuff

Finally, there were some talks not specifically about Angular that were still awesome. I like having a mental break from Angular and hearing from other perspectives.

Non-Angular talks:

Conclusion

I hope you’ve enjoyed the topical guide to ng-conf 2019. If you’re like me, you’ve probably got a million new things to research and implement in projects. Remember, you can find all of the videos on YouTube and check out my central repository for the speakers’ slides. Enjoy!

Install Angular - Angular Environment Setup Process

Angular is a TypeScript based framework that works in synchronization with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. To work with angular, domain knowledge of these 3 is required.

  1. Installing Node.js and npm
  2. Installing Angular CLI
  3. Creating workspace
  4. Deploying your First App

In this article, you will get to know about the Angular Environment setup process. After reading this article, you will be able to install, setup, create, and launch your own application in Angular. So let’s start!!!

Angular environment setup

Install Angular in Easy Steps

For Installing Angular on your Machine, there are 2 prerequisites:

  • Node.js
  • npm Package Manager
Node.js

First you need to have Node.js installed as Angular require current, active LTS or maintenance LTS version of Node.js

Download and Install Node.js version suitable for your machine’s operating system.

Npm Package Manager

Angular, Angular CLI and Angular applications are dependent on npm packages. By installing Node.js, you have automatically installed the npm Package manager which will be the base for installing angular in your system. To check the presence of npm client and Angular version check of npm client, run this command:

  1. npm -v

Installing Angular CLI

  • Open Terminal/Command Prompt
  • To install Angular CLI, run the below command:
  1. npm install -g @angular/cli

installing angular CLI

· After executing the command, Angular CLI will get installed within some time. You can check it using the following command

  1. ng --version

Workspace Creation

Now as your Angular CLI is installed, you need to create a workspace to work upon your application. Methods for it are:

  • Using CLI
  • Using Visual Studio Code
1. Using CLI

To create a workspace:

  • Navigate to the desired directory where you want to create your workspace using cd command in the Terminal/Command prompt
  • Then in the directory write this command on your terminal and provide the name of the app which you want to create. In my case I have mentioned DataFlair:
  1. Ng new YourAppName

create angular workspace

  • After running this command, it will prompt you to select from various options about the CSS and other functionalities.

angular CSS options

  • To leave everything to default, simply press the Enter or the Return key.

Basics of Angular: Part-1

What is Angular? What it does? How we implement it in a project? So, here are some basics of angular to let you learn more about angular.

Angular is a Typescript-based open-source front-end web application platform. The Angular Team at Google and a community of individuals and corporations lead it. Angular lets you extend HTML’s syntax to express your apps’ components clearly. The angular resolves challenges while developing a single page and cross-platform applications. So, here the meaning of the single-page applications in angular is that the index.html file serves the app. And, the index.html file links other files to it.

We build angular applications with basic concepts which are NgModules. It provides a compilation context for components. At the beginning of an angular project, the command-line interface provides a built-in component which is the root component. But, NgModule can add a number of additional components. These can be created through a template or loaded from a router. This is what a compilation context about.

What is a Component in Angular?

Components are key features in Angular. It controls a patch of the screen called a view. A couple of components that we create on our own helps to build a whole application. In the end, the root component or the app component holds our entire application. The component has its business logic that it does to support the view inside the class. The class interacts with the view through an API of properties and methods. All the components added by us in the application are not linked to the index.html. But, they link to the app.component.html through the selectors. A component can be a component and not only a typescript class by adding a decorator @Component. Then, for further access, a class can import it. The decorator contains some metadata like selector, template, and style. Here’s an example of how a component decorator looks like:

@Component({
    selector: 'app-root',
    templateUrl: 'app.component.html',
    styleUrls: ['app.component.scss']
})

Role of App Module

Modules are the package of functionalities of our app. It gives Angular the information about which features does my app has and what feature it uses. It is an empty Typescript class, but we transform it by adding a decorator @NgModule. So, we have four properties that we set up on the object pass to @NgModule. The four properties are declarations, imports, providers, and bootstrap. All the built-in new components add up to the declarations array in @NgModule.

@NgModule({
declarations: [
  AppComponent,
],
imports: [
  BrowserModule,
  HttpClientModule,
  AppRoutingModule,
  FormsModule
],
bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})

What is Data Binding?

Data Binding is the communication between the Typescript code of the component and the template. So, we have different kinds of data binding given below:

  • When there is a requirement to output data from our Typescript code in the HTML template. String interpolation handles this purpose like {{data}} in HTML file. Property Binding is also used for this purpose like [property] = “data”.
  • When we want to trigger any event like clicking a button. Event Binding works while we react to user events like (event) = “expression”.
  • When we can react to user events and output something at the same time. Two-way Binding is used like [(ngModel)] = “data”.

Why Choose AngularJS framework for the enterprise? | Angular development Company - CMARIX

Although Angular JS has bought headlines over the domain of Web application development, its relevance downtime does not offer any guarantee. Since the JavaScript application is the child of Google, its web features may have some value. Angular JS enables the developer to write most of the code in HTML which brings the application together. Such potentiality and simplicity of the program from the Angular Development Company made Angular popular among JavaScripts.

But the real question arises on the integrity and the safety Angular can provide to the industry. Angular regularly updates its libraries to fix security issues over earlier versions. However, the private and customized Angular versions fall back from the latest versions. These versions might lack the crucial security patches. As a piece of advice, developers can share their improvement requests in the community.

Backward compatibility indicates that the updated versions can function with the outdated versions. Hence, it can simplify the migration procedures to the latest Angular version. Some portions of the AngularJS apps need lazy loading to ease the update and to facilitate the transfer of large projects.

Since AngularJS tends to spoil backward compatibility, it might cause future problems in a program.

The Changing Face of Frameworks

There were several ups and downs in the Web application market over the past. A few years ago, SproutCore ruled the throne as a top framework. However, according to Google search trends, BackboneJS later stole the spotlight which again passed over to EmberJS. But, there remains no comparison for AngularJS.

Birthed by Adam Abrons and Misko Hevery, the Brat Tech engineers in 2009, the Angular Development Company AngularJS took a swift transition to open-source. When Misko Hevery joined Google, he continued to develop Angular JS. The platform began to earn its place by December of 2012 according to Google Trends.

In the year 2015, the potential of AngularJS surpassed other frameworks and offered job placements for many developers. However, AngularJS is not entirely without competition as Facebook came up with ReactJS. Hence, there is a race to show which surpasses the other. But, according to Jeff Schroeder, among the native apps, React elevates mobile app development to higher levels.

Continuous Development in Angular JS

AngularJS has high popularity yet, the developers break backward compatibility on a regular basis. Therefore, the supporters of AngularJS have to learn the AngularJS framework again and again. A critic of AngularJS – Danny Tuppeny, points out that the framework is unstable as it offers short-term support. The developers develop the framework every now and then which can puzzle its users. However, a mobile Web developer by the name of Nene Bodonkor indicates another factor. The frameworks become satisfactory and since they fail to keep up with the market requirements, change becomes crucial.

On the contrary, Yehuda Katz, the creator of EmberJS suggests that the fast-paced lifestyle needs to slow down. Therefore, these constant changes can compel people to reduce and balance their pace. Both, ReactJS from Facebook and EmberJS fight to achieve maximum backward compatibility. Such a characteristic helps these frameworks to come to use for an enterprise. But, AngularJS still has its upper hand over its competitors.

The simple-to-learn design of the Angular Framework with various functions

A legacy system includes few characteristics like old technology that are not compatible with the present systems. These systems do not remain available for purchase from distributors or vendors. These legacy systems cannot update nor patch up by themselves as the developer or vendor stops its maintenance.

The CTO of a mobile and Web app development company Monsoon, Michi Kono agreed on the decisions. But he also commented that the core developers at AngularJS miscommunicated the information. As the AngularJS framework has its uses in Google, they can use the platform for legacy versions and supporting enterprises. According to Michi Kono, AngularJS can promise a safe approach for its use in enterprises. The framework of Angular Development Company USA makes learning simple as it lacks strong convention opinions. The framework is easy for developers to learn and Angular has its applications on other parallel technologies. Vast organizations that have a demand for on-scale development and hiring procedures can use the framework to their advantage.

The low level of Angular appears more as a toolbox than a framework. Such an approach makes Angular useful on a wide variety of utility functions. The developer can use the JavaScript framework to add a single website button through a separate framework. Major companies like Google, Facebook and Microsoft aim to improve JavaScript to match entrepreneur requirements. Since AtScript or the typed JavaScript from Google, will form the backbone of AngularJS 2.0, several developers shall prefer to leverage it.

The Best Fit

AngularJS has several promising aspects for developers from different enterprises to try. But the JavaScript framework undergoes several alterations by its developers. Yet, some of the JavaScript frameworks grab the focus of various users for which they remain in maintenance. Therefore, according to Brian Leroux, the Adobe Web developer, there are two options left. Developers can either imprison themselves within vast rewrites with no forward progress. Or Hire angular developers who can focus their attention to optimize the website architecture. Therefore, developers need to stay up-to-date with the current developments in the web application frameworks like AngularJS.

AngularJS frameworks carry lots of potential in real-time markets. But, the developers need to stay up-to-date to tackle the regular changes in its infrastructure.
