#1 Angular JS to Angular7
Angular JS was created by a team of developers at Google in 2010 and then in 2016 the same team decided to completely rewrite it. That’s how Angular 2 appeared on the market. After that every six months Google comes up with the new version of Angular with added features and improvements.
Angular uses HTML templates to compose components and that makes it easier for beginners to get started with. Angular 7 can simply be distinguished from Angular JS by such features:
- it warns you when the app exceeds 2 MB
- it automatically adds and deletes the reflect metadata polyfill
- Angular Elements components support content projection through slots
- CLI documentation is now kept in the main Angular.io docs
- new modules organization (418)
So if you are still working on AngularJS it is a perfect time to choose Angular 7 instead. It has a smooth code integration, it gets more convenient with time and each upgrade brings new and useful features that might bring your next project to another level. And if you don’t know how to upgrade to the next version of Angular you can read our article on how to do that in a few simple steps.
Why this framework is becoming more popular? At first, it is very simple to use, it is modern, new and clean. Secondly, having taken into account the paths of React and Angular, Vue could avoid their mistakes and copy the models of their success. Apart from that and being easy to learn, it has even more great features to convince you:
- an open-source product
- stable API
- Proxy support
- supports SVG animations
- Nuxt tool for module replacement
As it is written on their site, GraphQL is a query language for your API, and a server-side runtime for executing queries by using a type system you define for your data. GraphQL isn’t tied to any specific database or storage engine and is instead backed by your existing code and data. To put it simply it helps developers to make more precise requests from the server and bundle them in an easy way.
GraphQL is often thought to be the replacement for the REST APIs, although they are not the actually competitors as they both are equally good for all types of apps. GraphQL is integrated with React framework which is useful in 2018 and definitely will be appreciated in 2019.
