NoteThis blog post first appeared in my Web Developer Newsletter on June 16.Look for the form to sign up to the newsletter below.
This is Meligy from GuruStop.NET. Just checking if you got the news, Angular 2 RC2 is out!
The big highlights for this release for me seem to be:
- The first release of the template compiler
It allows you to compile templates as a build step, and avoid loading the Angular compiler in runtime.
The Angular team say this compiler is the most essential to marking Angular 2 as final release.
- Simplifications to forms
If you played with Angular 2 forms and find the syntax confusing / redundant like me, this is big news
- A new rewrite of the router
This rewrite seems better than the on in previous RC.
The official blog says it has contributions from ui-router and ngrx/router
- Some new features
Namely the animation framework
By the way, I’m personally sticking to Angular CLI when trying newer versions of Angular 2.
If you are taking this route, note that you need to uninstall the CLI, and clean npm cache before installing a new version.
That’s it for me. How about you?
Have you been playing with Angular 2 yet?
Or still looking for a good place to learn it?
Write back to me and let me know :)
How did I learn that?
As a bonus for coming here, I'm giving away a free newsletter for web developers that you can sign up for from here.
It's not an anything-and-everything link list. It's thoughtfully collected picks of articles and tools, that focus on Angular 2+, ASP.NET (4.x/MVC5 and Core), and other fullstack developer goodies.
Take it for a test ride, and you may unsubscribe any time.
You might also want to support me by checking these out [Thanks]:
