What is the future of Angular?
A blog on What is the future of Angular?
Future is not certain, it does not follow some specific path but if you dig deep enough into the present and past data, you might have a shot at depicting multiple possibilities for the future. There is no doubt in the fact that the Angular development framework is becoming more robust and the applications made through it chart high performance with the release of every new version. But how is the future of this development technology? We will have a quick peek at a few aspects that are in progress and would soon be a part of the releases of the future versions and are also considered assuperior practices to develop angular applications.
Some special and futuristic features of Angular
1. Inline critical styles would make Universal applications work faster
Loading the external stylesheets is one of those blocking operations where the browser would not start rendering your app until all the referenced CSS is loaded. If you have a render-blocking resource right on the header of your page then it would negatively affect the load performance of your web application.
2. Better Angular error messages leads to enhanced debugging
Error messages carry very little information for developers to take any actions to resolve them successfully. It is heard that the angular team is going to make the error messages more discoverable. This is accomplished with the addition of developing guides, associated codes, and more relevant materials. Better error messages can ensure a smoother experience for developers in debugging.
3. Changing the Angular language services to Ivy
The angular team has initiated this project with a goal to eliminate legacy dependency and enhance the experience by making a shift from angular language services to Ivy. The language services in angular and in Ivy applications are still using type checking and the View Engine Compiler.
The type checking should be improved. They also leverage the Ivy template parser for angular language services so that it can match the behavior of an app. Such a migration is a step forward which will eventually open many paths of improvements for angular like removing View Engine. This removal will simplify the angular framework and would improve its maintainability and minimize the size of the npm package.
