Lately on large applications considerable performance issues were noticed which are hard to fix due to the architectural challenges and Angular team has developed Angular2 or simply Angular. Post release of Angular 2 or Angular AngularJS is now called as Angular1 and is in sunset stage.


    On the other hand, Angular is TypeScript based front-end web application framework for dynamic Single Page Applications which is second version of AngularJS but has been completely rebuilt from ground to address the performance and scalability issues found in AngularJS. Angular is based on component architecture and takes advantages of all typescript goodness to help developers code less error prone applications.

    Angular is a framework as it is a collection of several libraries packaged under single name.


    Angular provides all the necessary libraries to develop a Single Page Application without need to install other third-party libraries that does not mean you cannot install any third part libraries but to achieve core functionalities all batteries are included.


    Angular framework has built in support for

    • Data binding – a feature that helps to keep UI and model in synchronous w.r.t to change
    • Form handling – Handling forms is very complex task due to need of tracking changes to form controls, validating them to ensure quality data is accepted into application. Angular provides out of box services to achieve this with less code
    • Routing – Routing in single page applications is tricky due to no full-page refresh, angular routing library will make it to achieve the same with ease
    • Http client - Handling http requests in client-side code using XMLHttpRequest is very cumbersome due to browser compatibility. Angular http client is cross browser compatible api which observable support which makes working with http a breeze
    • Animations – Animating elements dynamically using javascript code is not easy t work with. Angular's animation system is built on CSS functionality, which means you can animate any property that the browser considers animatable and it is very easy to work with

    This can be a long list, hence we share the most priority ones here, however you can find a link at the end that explains all the best practices in detail

    • Reusable components - Angular is all about component development every other thing is to help component work better. Do not make large monolithic components, components must be small and reusable and focus to perform one thing
    • Cleaner components - Do not clutter components with service / business logic, components key role is to manage UI. No UI related code keep it away from the component. Use services for no UI related code
    • Clean up subscriptions - Make sure all subscriptions made are unsubscribed on component destruction you can use ngDestroy lifecycle method to clean the subscriptions
    • Lazy load - Initial load times are very important for any SPA. To reducer the initial bundle size use code splitting and let lazy load the modules on demand. Using children property of angular routing configuration you can lazy load a module.
    • Avoid Nested subscriptions - Do not write code that create subscription in subscribe methods. Use appropriate flatten / merge operators to keep the subscriptions as flat as possible
    • TrackBy for better performance - updating a list which is already rendered with one element change, makes the whole list rendered even with other elements which are not changed, this is not a performant way. Using trackBy will help angular to identify the elements that need change and avoid unnecessary renders
    • Virtual Scrolling for long lists - Virtual scrolling is introduced in Angular 7 and has ability to handle large lists of data by dynamic loading and unloading of parts which are non critical by keeping DOM lightweight
    • Cleaner templates - Avoid writing logical coding expressions in template as it will impact the unit testing.

    It is not fair to compare these to tech due to their design and approaches. React is just library which has focus only on view whereas angular is a framework which provides services to needed for all areas of application.


    Two important areas to highlight as a comparison among these

    • Learning curve – Just React has very small learning curve as you can use core javascript skills to start with whereas with angular you need basic typescript skills to start with
    • Flexibility – Since react is a library and not tightly coupled to other services like routing, http client, form management, which are needed to develop full-fledged web application and you have free hand to choose them where as angular being framework is not much flexible to choose out of angular delivered

    Typescript

    TypeScript is a programming language used to develop angular application. Angular team has chosen typescript as a programming language rather javascript due to the static type support offered by typescript.


    TypeScript is an open-source programming language developed and maintained by Microsoft and it is a typed superset of JavaScript that compiles to plain JavaScript.


    Some the great and useful features that typescript offers are

    • Types – Apart from support to all JavaScript types, TypeScript provides some additional types like enum, union, never, any
    • Interfaces – Interface is one of the powerful features which helps in validating the structural and behavioural contract
    • Decorators – provide a way to add both annotations and a meta-programming syntax for class declarations and members, this feature is widely used in angular

    TypeScript is typed superset of JavaScript, an open source and cross platform language from Microsoft. It brings the static typed nature to dynamically typed JavaScript language. TypeScript is compile time language only, upon compilation typescript compiles to JavaScript. Since TypeScript is superset to JavaScript all JS code is completely valid in TypeScript.


    TypeScript adds more power to JavaScript by supplementing object oriented features that are missing in JavaScript, some of the features to highlight are below

    • Interfaces - used for both structural and behavioral contracts
    • Function overloading - which helps to write better object oriented code
    • Enum - to create a numerical named constants
    • Encapsulation - Improves ES6 classes with access modifiers, static properties along with static methods
    • Generics - create a component that can work over a different data types rather than a single type.
    • Functions with strict contracts - In JS function arity and parameter type checking verification is programmer's responsibility whereas in typescript it is inbuilt


    Due to its constant and active development more and more new and well useful features are being added due to which enterprises are considering typescript as choice of programming language on both server and front end

    Angular 8

    Angular 8 is the recent version of Angular released on October 18, 2018


    Angular 8 is the significant release announced by Google with the new features such as Scrolling, Drop, Drag, and CLI prompts. Google also introduced other features like drag and drop features which made developers excited to dive in.


    Angular 8 version is mainly focused on the Ivy project. Ivy project is basically rewriting the Angular compiler and runtime code to make it immeasurable. Angular 8 also came up with the new concept called "Bundle Budget" which helps in overcoming the bundle size of an angular app.

    Angular 8 has come with some updates, additions and improvements to existing features.
    Some of them to highlight

    • CLI Prompts – With new CLI prompts library authors can pose questions during installation to accept the default or custom configuration during library setup.
    • Application Performance – Angular team has always shown great importance for improvising performance in every version and even this release has come with improvements
    • Angular Material & the CDK updates with new components to support Virtual Scrolling and Drag and Drop - The Angular 7 introduced minor visual updates & improvements in Material Design that earlier received a major update this year. Virtual scrolling with ability to handle large lists of data, dynamic loading and unloading of parts of the DOM were the part of improvements in CDK and Angular Material along with drag and drop support to easily create drag & drop interfaces
    • Improved Accessibility of Selects - Angular team has improved the accessibility by using native htmlselectelement inside of a mat-form-field as native select has more performance, accessibility, and usability advantages
    • Angular Elements with support to content projection - Angular elements are introduced in v6 to make angular use of angular components framework agnostic. In v7 angular elements support content projection using web standards for custom elements.

    Main features of angular are:

    • Universal - Angular can be used to create applications that run on web, mobile and desktop. Angular can be used as template language on server side
    • Mobile first approach
    • Progressive Web app - Use modern web platform capabilities to deliver app-like experiences. High performance, offline, and zero-step installation.
    • Native app - develop native mobiles using angular and typescript
    • Batteries included - provides several useful services out of the box like routing, http client, form management
    • Powerful dev tooling - cli provides tools to help improve productivity with code generation abilities and production grade build generation support
    • Code Splitting - Improve initial load times using code splitting features by lazy loading angular modules with help of routing
    • Templating - Use static HTML as template yet making it dynamic with angular template syntaxes
    • Testing - out of the box unit testing and e2e testing support
    • Accessibility - Create accessible applications with ARIA-enabled components, developer guides, and built-in a11y test infrastructure.

    Angular 8 was released on October 18, 2018

    Since angular is TypeScript based framework and TypeScript is typed superset of JavaScript and compiles to JavaScript, it is mandatory to have intermediate JavaScript skills especially having a strong knowledge on Functions, Scope, Closures, Callbacks, Promises will be helpful

    Though you do development in TypeScript JavaScript skills holds greater importance as all JavaScript is valid in typescript

    Since angular is TypeScript based framework and angular development is performed in TypeScript you need to have good TypeScript knowledge.

    Angular 8 Installation

    Angular 8 can be easily installed with angular cli. To install angular cli, node and npm must be installed first.

    What is Nodejs?

    Nodejs is a server side javascript runtime which allows to run javascript outside browser. In react development nodejs primary helps dev tooling and dev experience and is not needed for production deployments.

    What is npm? 

    npm is dependency management tool used to install javascript libraries.

    Installation instructions 

    • Download nodejs from here
    • Install nodejs- Along with nodejs, npm will be installed automatically. No separate installation is needed for npm
    • Open command prompt / terminal and run npm install -g @angular/cli - this command will install latest version on angular cli
    • On successful installation you will have access to command line tool called "ng" which has several subcommands to manage angular development.
    • You can create a new angular project with angular cli command ng new. ng new hello-angular8

    Above command creates a new angular 8 project and setups all necessary dependencies and makes the project ready to be executed

    Open command prompt or windows PowerShell and fire the below command

    node -v


    This command should give you some output like v10.13.0 if node is properly installed and configured else you would receive an error stating node is not recognised as internal or external command
