Should you migrate from AngularJS to Angular? Read our case study of how we used the hybrid approach to migrate an app without freezing its functionality.
Lately we were approached by a client who intended to migrate to the latest version of Angular.
Now THIS was something.
Our team was quite excited by this perspective. Working with the most cutting-edge tools and technologies is always an opportunity to grow as professionals and to dive into all the latest tech solutions which is just pure fun.
We do prefer to start projects from scratch and choose the setup and technology that suits our liking and project requirements. But that wasn’t the case this time around. We had to keep building upon the existing AngularJS application for a few months and work on fixing bugs at the same time.
The reasons were obvious: the application’s end users expected new features as well as performance improvements.
We decided on incremental refactoring using a “hybrid” approach. And below you’ll find an outline of what exactly went into the process hiding behind the popular buzzword.
First, let’s back up a little.
To reconcile app expansion with fixing bugs, we decided that half of the project's frontend team would work on new features and the other half would migrate the old components to the new framework. At this point, we needed to deal with three critical aspects:
Running two frameworks side by side sounded like a solution. The migration could be done collaboratively and spread over time—it seemed like a win-win situation!
There are some viable alternatives to AngularJS, but we ultimately chose Angular as the heir apparent. Unanimously. The decision was driven primarily by Angular’s official support of the “ngUpgrade” module and its stellar documentation.
The migration process was not all roses though. Below, we’ll share some of the experiences of the process and provide a handful of working solutions that helped us through. Hopefully you’ll find it useful when migrating your app from AngularJS to Angular.
