So, things from being complicated to understandable have now become easy! The key version packages along with CDK & CLI check out sync.
Let us understand the new features of angular 6 one by one.
The most favorite – Angular Elements!
This is the only version which will completely support angular elements. Well, you can also say that this was the most awaited feature of the release. This is fundamentally intended to take leeway of web segments that are being upheld by all cutting-edge browsers. This will enable you to make an Angular part and distribute it as a Web Component, which can be utilized as a part of any HTML page.
Changing a segment to a custom component gives a simple way to making dynamic HTML in the Angular application. Having said that, creating and publishing a web component in Angular and using it on any HTML page is beyond expectation.
No more unnecessary compiling – The Bazel Compiler!
Oh Yes! We will begin having the Bazel compiler bolster. So, while compiling the code with Bazel Compiler, you will recompile whole code base, yet it incorporates just with vital code. This is a basic change with enormous effects, i.e. it enables you to dispatch AOT precompiled code to npm. Which implies that angular developers don’t need to stress over compiling a specific library in AOT. Why? As it is already done!
This additionally implies metadata.json is never again required, which makes it simpler for tools to check your codebase and many tools end up perfect with npm packages. So things are sorted providing quick compilation with less overhead. COOL, ISN’T IT?
The new in rendering engine – IVY!
A modify of the renderer, Ivy has additionally been getting a considerable measure of attention. The renderer ought to be fundamentally littler, which will take into account optimizing the size of the final app.
This is the third render engine for Angular. The second was the View Engine. After they supplanted it the first time, they saw increments in speed and declines in application measure, and no incompatibilities too. They are wanting to see an indistinguishable sort of results this time too.
NO to the unwanted – Service Worker!
Just as the service worker script can do wonder, it is difficult to remove them too. It runs in the browser & manages the caching too.
Once in a while when we are compiling the most recent variant of the angular application we may need to deactivate or remove the service worker, but there was no straight method to deactivate it. The game changer “safety-worker.js” file! It is the part of the bundle & now will allow you to easily deactivate it. YAYYY!
New supporting features – ng add & ng update!
Well well, take a bow developer!
There is less coding, more features in the application & in lesser time. With the new ng add feature support, you simply need to select the capabilities & it will automatically add the code for the same in the backend. This is WOW!
Worried about adding the new packages? No more worries!
The new ng update command will update the packages in your package.json file automatically. Not only this, with the new API’s it will also check out the bugs & update the code automatically saving a lot of your time.
We hope you found this piece of information useful. For any queries feel free to comment. We will be back with an in detail explanation on each new features soon!
