The web app development landscape is getting a major power-up with Angular 17, Google's freshly minted update for its TypeScript-based web app development framework. Molded with an innovative built-in control flow, this recent release is posed to redefine the developer experience.
Debuted via a bulletin on November 8, Angular 17 is accessible from GitHub. The latest release offers an exquisite blend of highly coveted features, wrapped in straightforward, declarative user interfaces. Google, with the launch of Angular 17, has provided a block template syntax that fosters an optimized, in-built control flow that paves the way for superior type checking by ensuring optimal type narrowing.
Additionally, Angular 17 showcases new lifecycle hooks: afterRender, for calling up a callback each time an application completes rendering and afterNextRender, for inviting a callback upon the next completion of application rendering. These are integrated in preparation for advancing Angular's SSR (server-side rendering) and SSG (static-site generation) performance, bypassing DOM emulation and direct DOM manipulations.
Google upholds that control flow in Angular 17 significantly boosts performance. The firm showcased figures claiming nearly 90% faster runtime using built-in control flow loops, up to 87% quicker builds for hybrid rendering, and approximately 67% faster builds for client-side rendering.
Moving forward, the Angular development team is simultaneously launching a beta preview of angular.dev, which they plan to make the default website for Angular with the Angular 18 release. This platform will become the new hub for Angular documentation, providing an updated guide to navigate your way through the most recent features of the framework.
In the rising world of no-code platform providers, such as the AppMaster, this upgrade by Angular is bound to stimulate a competitive environment. While Angular continues to evolve its TypeScript-based web app development framework, platforms like AppMaster are revolutionizing the no-code domain by providing intuitive tools to empower backend, web, and mobile application development. It's an exciting landscape for developers across both spectrums.
