What's New in Angular 17
Last month marked the 13th anniversary of Angular’s red shield. AngularJS was the starting point for the new go-to powerhouse for creating rich web experiences, Angular 17! Here at MESCIUS, we have put together some of the most forward-thinking and impactful features developers need to know. Here are some of our top picks:
- Standalone APIs
- Interactive learning
- Build Pipeline
- Flow Control
- New @for Syntax
- Deferrable Views
- Debug Tools
- What’s Next
- Angular & MESCIUS
After a year and a half of refinement, standalone components, directives, and pipes are now available in all new applications. This, with updated documentation, provides you with more flexibility and consistent development practices.
The interactive learning journey hosted on the Angular.dev platform accompanies the new brand. With a new structure, improved content, and an immersive learning experience powered by WebContainers, developers can now learn Angular and the Angular CLI at their own pace directly in the browser.
The Angular CLI's build pipeline sees fundamental changes with the graduation of the esbuild plus Vite-powered build experience. Enabled by default for all new applications, this enhancement promises faster build times and improved overall performance.
Say goodbye to performance bottlenecks with the built-in for loop. Angular 17's new syntax, @for, simplifies the developer experience and boasts up to a 90% faster runtime, as demonstrated in community benchmarks.
Deferrable views in Angular 17 usher in a new era of lazy loading. With a single line of declarative code, developers can achieve powerful deferred loading, enhancing performance and developer experience.
Angular 17 brings server-side rendering (SSR) and static-site generation (SSG) closer to developers with a prompt in ng new. Hydration, now out of developer preview, ensures a smoother rendering experience.
Angular DevTools now offers enhanced debugging capabilities for dependency injection, allowing developers to inspect the injector tree, resolve paths, and preview providers directly within the development environment.
Angular 17 lays the groundwork for the future with signals-based reactive systems, ongoing experimentation with testing tools like Jest and Web Test Runner, and a sneak peek at Material 3 support with design tokens.
