I understand that some of us – web development specialists have become use to working with Angular JS 1x and as soon as we started to like it, they came up with the new version. Since the Angular 2 has been in the beta, many are giving it a try. Since it is on the horizon, we still have the time to gear up to the time when Angular 2 will be finally released.
More than just bug fixes! – Angular 2
From the candidate release, we can understand that the latest version will be offering much more than just bug fixes. We are expecting major changes in the scene once Angular 2 will be released. And all the web development experts can’t wait to explore them. It is going to be nothing like Angular 1 and thus upgrading will be a wiser thing to do.
Expect Following Changes
In the latest version, Angular is expected to share concepts with its predecessor – the special HTML templating syntax, directives/components to modify the DOM. Also an approach called “Kitchen Sink” approach is said to include all of that you are going to need to develop an app i.e. router, HTTP service, etc.
Angular 2 is expected to have more similarities too but the existing Angular 1 code will need some deep changes to work with Angular 2. As I told nothing like Angular 1. According to what I have seen in the candidate release, I think it will act like a replacement for the code where 60% of your code might work but the other aspects will have to be dropped. If you current app developed in Angular 1 is working well then you will may not change anything. Have a word with the Software Development Expert with your project and analyze if it needs an upgrade.
Note: Angular 1 is not going to be outdated soon! So don’t worry you won’t have to necessarily upgrade. Weigh your pros and cons and then make the final call.
I am software application development specialist (also IT Outsourcing Partner) and I have been using Angular JS for a long time now and from it I understand that we all must await the final release before we make up our mind to upgrade or suggest our clients to upgrade.
But the idea behind this blog is to be prepared for what is coming! Have a plan in place and consider upgrading sometime in the near future. If you have any more queries, then please comment. When it is Angular JS, I would be much more than happy to help you in whatever way I can.
