Angular is an Open-Source JavaScript Framework which is famous for web application development software. By offering outstanding features and capabilities such as two-way data binding, routing, templates that make the framework most advanced. Six versions of the Angular has already been published, and the biggest news is here. Angular 7 also has also been launched in September 2018 which is tinier, faster and smoother to use, and it is going to make developers life more comfortable.

Without more ado, let’s explore the most significant changes in Angular 7 that you must know about.

Updated ng-compiler:

This is the excellent news as developers will be able to decrease the bunch size by letting the old packages to use Ivy Rendering Engine. This is the highest gain for all the applications because smaller packages mean shorter time to download and speedier load times.

Splitting of @angular/core:

One of the disadvantages of angular is its total multipurposeness. Spontaneously templates give you modules, that you do not even need it. Now, 418 modules can be worked independently which are offered by @angular/core. As an unexpected side effect, this draws us that much closer to DDOS-ing our machines every time we run npm install.

@aiStore with Artificial Intelligence:

With the earlier developed ngrx code base, this is artificial intelligence storage which is backwards compatible and can create a single-source-of-alternative-truths solution. The new @aiStore can generate predictive data of how and when the values change using historical data, camera, and microphone APIs, and can update the views accordingly.

@angular/mine for Mining Bitcoin:

@angular/mine is another npm package which let angular developers do mine bitcoin during app performance. Moreover, these processes are wholly hidden from a user’s eyes that makes it more convenient.

Enhanced Angular Schematics:

Now in Angular 7, for interactive install of dependencies and for building new angular projects, Schematics is allowed. Angular CLI will also assist you whether to add routing and which stylesheet to use while running ng name project. This would be proved helpful as many time developers forget to add flags and this will help them to worry less about one thing.

Advancement of Router:

In the latest version of Angular, the CanLoad Interface will now have UrlSegment[] which will save URLs a user tried to navigate to and can be redirected to them later. This feature is especially valuable when a developer wants to redirect the user back after they have been authenticated.

Updates in Angular Material and CDK:

Virtual Scroll:

By Virtual Scroll you will allow displaying an extensive list of items by only presenting the number of items on viewpoint. This update is related to Angular Component Development Kit that means you can apply it with any UI Framework.

Drag and Drop:

Drag and Drop is another impressive trait for Angular CDK. The developer can make a drag-drop UI by this module that can be managed for free dragging, ordering and transferring items through a list etc.

Support for Native Select in MatFormFieldModule:

Not as impressive as the above two, this is quite a remarkable development feature. Before whenever you want to add a select form field in Angular material, you have to use MatSelectModule, but after introducing of Angular 7, Material will support the native HTML select input.

<select matNativeControl placeholder=”Favorite car” [(ngModel)]=”selectedCar” name=”car”>
<option value=”” disabled selected></option>
<option *ngFor=”let car of cars” [value]=”car.value”>
{{car.viewValue}}
</option>
</select>

Release Schedule:

Recently, the Angular 7 is released in September 2018 which is excellent news for all the Angular enthusiasts. Angular 8 is supposed to launch in March/April 2019 with ^7.0.0 compatibility. You can expect a major release every six months and a patch release almost every week. The primary goal of each Angular version is supposed to be backwards compatible with the prior release and not to put unnecessary upgrade/migration load on the Angular application and component authors.

Microsoft’s free cross-platform text editor Visual Studio Code is quickly becoming a massive favorite choice credibility to the abundant of its features and exceptional performance. Similar to various other IDEs, Visual Studio Code comes with several useful extensions that benefit with coding simplification. In this blog, we have listed out some of the finest Visual Studio Code extensions extremely useful for the project development aspects.  

TSLint 

If you are not using TSLint then you should start now. 

If you already using then It will show the lines under the code where there are issues and when you hover, it will display a list of warnings & errors. In the Problem panel there will be the entire list of detected issues and the brownie point is that it provides auto fixes! 

scode-elixir-formatter 

It’s a code formatter and the main goal is to automate the styling of codebases into a unique and consistent layout used across teams and the whole community. 

It’s a code formatter as we see developer always struggle with consistency of maintaining unique styling of codebases but this extension resolves their issue as it provides a unique and consistent layout not only within the team but also across whole community. 

As an Angular developer, you no longer need to spend the time to take care of formatting rules and concentrate on writing quality codes easier & quicker.

Version Lens 

It provides package version information of bower, dotnet, dub, jspm , npm in the Visual Studio Code editor. 

TypeScript Hero 

TypeScript Hero is very useful to organize your imports. It helps developer to manage the multiple import using visual studio code. It is used to sort and organize the imports (sort and remove unused). 

Trailing Spaces 

VS Code by using the Trim Trailing Whitespace command allows the automated deletion of trailing spaces. 

Identicator 

This extension is used to visually highlights the current indent depth. So, you can easily distinguish between various blocks indented at different levels. 

Indent-Rainbow 

Indent-Rainbow extension colorizes the indentation in front of your text varying four different colors on every level. 

Import-cost 

This extension displays inline the size of the imported package in the editor. The extension employs a web pack with babili-web pack-plugin in order to identify the imported size. 

Indent Rainbow & bracket pair colorizer 

Brackets and parentheses are an integral part of various programming languages. In a programming language like JavaScript especially in a single page there is always complaint of similar characters with no clear mechanism to know the opening and closing pairs. 

Conclusion 

The post features tried and tested VS code extensions, and we have listed some of the most easy-to-use, convinient and intuitive ones. Incidentally, this list isn’t the ultimate one, so you can also let us know a few more, the ones which are of great use to you and we will include in the above blog post.
