Let’s go through the essential features of Angular 6
Angular Elements package will enable you to make an Angular component and publish it as a Web Component, which utilized as a part of any HTML page. It is primarily designed to take advantage of web components that are being supported by all modern browsers. Transforming one element to a custom component gives a simple way to make dynamic HTML content in your Angular web application. With this feature, enterprise businesses can switch to the Angular framework for their business app.
Ivy Renderer is rendering engine that is designed to be backward compatible with existing render and focused on enhancing the speed of rendering and optimizes the size of the final bundle. Its primary concentrate on speed improvements, code size reduction by gzipped the code, and increased flexibility by making the size of the web app smaller and make compilation faster.
At the point when a developer imports or exports modules in the JS framework, a couple of codes not used. Tree shaking or dead code elimination is a build optimization step that tries to ensure all unused coded to get used in the final bundle. The upcoming Ivy renderer is getting ready to take tree shaking to a whole new level.
Bazel utilized advanced local and distributed caching, optimized dependency analysis and parallel execution. It supports large codebases across multiple repositories projects in multiple languages and builds outputs for various platforms. Since source code changes frequently, it doesn’t make sense to rebuild the entire application for every change. Somewhat, we should revamp code that changed, and code that depends on the changes. You will get quick and incremental builds with cutting-edge local and distributed caching, optimized dependency analysis and parallel execution, that is the reason this feature is significant for the increasing the build of the business application.
Ng Update and Ng Add
Ng Update is a CLI command that analyzes your package.json and recommends updates to your application. You can use the ng update that automatically updates your project dependencies and makes automated version fixes. It also updates RxJS and Angular Material code and npm dependencies.
On the other hand, ng add is a way to add new capabilities in the web apps with ease. It will utilize the bundle manager to download new dependencies and invoke an installation script which can update your project with configuration changes, include extra dependencies such as polyfills or scaffold package-specific initialization code.
Component Dev Kit (CDK)
With the CDK you can now build your library of UI components without using the Angular Material library. It supports Responsive Web Design layouts by eliminating the use of different libraries such as Flex Layout or learning CSS Grid in requirement. With Angular 6 release, CDK Toolkit is steady, and Developers can use this toolbox to build their components with less effort as this toolkit already has the vast majority of the commonly utilized utilities to make components.
Service worker is a script that runs in the web browser and manages to cache for an application. It helps us to cache the application in the browser which can run in offline mode. It works amazingly for push notifications and catching. In Angular 6, the Service Worker comes with bug fixes and a safety-worker.js file. The file allows the developers to deactivate the Service Worker as and when they want.
Angular offers completely diverse approaches to web app development from start-ups to Enterprises. It gives a strategy to build apps for any deployment target by reusing existing code. A key ability version Angular 6 will aim to do is combine all the functionalities releases of the framework of the core router, platform browser, Angular CLI, Angular Material and different solutions will be released together to give developers a sense of cohesion and give better access to the recent version of Angular. In a word, the Angular 6 has brought a better code and offers enhanced support to Google’s Material Design approach. Angular 6 has all the features and functionality to build a feature-rich business web application.
