Future of Angular Development
The development of the Angular framework has now gained very serious momentum. Angular team tries to improve the framework in all directions. Though main directions would include:
– Building optimization
– Compiler Improvements
These points help to upgrade Angular to be smaller, faster, and easier to use. Separately, it should be noted the great contribution of developers to the development of TypeScript, in addition to the implementation of Angular Material as “default” to build user interfaces. It’s possible to sum up general vector of progress: Angular team tries to create one and powerful tool to cover all development stages to all platforms. This is just the beginning.
Angular.js vs Angular
AngularJS is an extremely stable framework for building web applications and has been used by millions of developers across the Web. Angular is its successor and uses the same philosophies such as declarative templates and dependency injection. Many developers are still using AngularJS, and that the migration process to Angular takes time and energy, but developers want clarity on the future AngularJS development plans.
In summer 2018 Angular.js will enter a 3 year period of Long Term Support, but there are still many problems to be solved.
The Angular team and community have benefited so much from the countless people in the community who have provided feedback, bug fixes, new features, educational resources, built amazing libraries, run awesome conferences, and created fantastic applications. The creators of the framework promise: all AngularJS applications that work now, will continue to work in the future. All published versions of AngularJS, on npm, bower, CDNs, etc will continue to be available.
