Top 10 Important Features of Angular 6.0 Which Cannot Be Missed

Do you belong to the development stream?

Always love to figure out new ways making your coding structure easier to understand?

Then you must have heard of this next-gen technology for sure!


Angular 6.0 Version


Those who belong to the developing world knows the eminence of working on Angular 6.0 framework. Launched on March 2018, Angular 6.0 has come up with RxJS 6 assisting you to build your application faster than ever before. This version backs the TypeScript version 2.7 making the code easier with the help of default declarations, strict class initialization, and type declarations.


What are the biggest highlights of Angular 6.0?


  1. Service Worker Support: These are more of scripts running on the web browser to manage the cache memory of an application. This feature was first introduced in the Angular 5 framework but when it re-introduced in Angular 6.0, service worker support was a bug-free feature simplifying way more than it was expected to do. Due to this factor, if you want to use the updated version of service worker support, you may need to delete the previous one. It supports navigation URL configuration redirecting the navigation requests which do not match with any of the source available within the framework. Unless you don’t reconnect the server and update your work history, the service worker support stays in the similar mode.

  2. Angular Elements: If you want to develop a single page application, then it is the perfect sort of framework that you may hop on. It simplified the process of creating widgets or components within the existing page. Amid all the previously launched frameworks, Angular 6 is the only one having the ability to support all sorts of Angular elements. It smartly enables the functionality of creating an Angular component and then uploading it in the form of a web component which of course amends better value to the overall HTML page.

  3. i18n: Also known as internationalization, i18n has impressive runtime rendering ability which helps to build the application quicker than any other source. Apart from this, it has improved the currency pipe as well, for instance- i18n avoids curving each of the currency value having 2 or more digits. These values can be retrieved easily but only by using i18n.

  4. Template Elements: Launched with Angular 4, the static template element has been replaced by <ng-template>, which makes the coding structure much easier to read and rectify the bugs.

  5. Ivy: It is one of a new rendering engine available in Angular 6 to increase the overall speed of the application. It majorly works on compiling the equivalent TypeScript code so that later TypeScript code can be compiled into JavaScript easily. As it is one of the default renderers in the Angular 6 framework, you may need to work on your code structure manually to enable this feature as per your requirements. However, it helped to improve the Angular 6 version in many ways but a complete form of ivy is available in its next version only.

  6. ngModel change: The major function of ngModel change is to update as well as upgrade the framework package in every term. In order to render the HTML, ngModel can be used smartly.

  7. ElementRef<T>: The previous versions of Angular frameworks were not supporting the reference elements appropriately. Earlier, the templates used to be amended through @ViewChild or @ViewChildren but now, in the Angular 6, type ElementRef can be used with all the limitations making it an apt source to simplify the code structure.

  8. RxJS 6.0: In earlier versions, the backend changes used to be updated on the front end but there is nothing as such now in the updated version. Angular 6.0 has RxJS embedded within the code making the changes live visible on the screen. This has improved the operational speed of developers to a great extent.

  9. Bazel Compiler: This one is basically a mechanism or builds system which is used by Google to develop almost every software. The biggest highlight of Bazel compiler is it initiates the rebuilding process dynamically which ultimately improves the overall code structure and improvises the source code too. As the source code changes every now and then, it is hard to rebuild the complete application over and over again. In such cases, Bazel compiler is of great help. By using it, the developer need not develop the entire application again and the minor changes can be made through Bazel compiler easily. This compiler includes a number of advanced features like- optimized dependency analysis, distributed caching, advanced local, and parallel execution which helps to rebuild the application with speed.

  10. Tree shaking: with the intent of making the Angular app smaller than the previous one, Google developers transformed module referencing services into services referencing modules. The major function of tree shaking is to prohibit the use of any usual coding language or element in the overall structure, especially at the final stage. It reduces the hassle of passing the rendering template to an interpreter for further instructions, it directly sends the renderer to template instructions making the process faster and accurate.


Other important elements of Angular 6.0-


Initially, there was an issue of router hitting the race condition during the router instantiated process which has been sorted out in 6.0 successfully.

Now the decorator does not override ngInjectableDef making the code difficult to read.


It has enabled the size tracking feature smartly.


So, now when are you hopping on to Angular 6.0 to enrich your coding knowledge and development skills?
