What’s New in Angular 7?

Below I’m going to tell you all about the new features of the Angular 7. So here we are.

  • Angular 6 can be updated to Angular 7 by just using a simple command.

ng update @angular/cli @angular/core

In version 7 most of the apps just takes 10 minutes to be updated.

  • There are some changes in CLI prompt built-in features like routing or scss support for the common CLI commands like ng new or ng add @angular/material.
  • Earlier developers were making a common mistake of adding reflect-metadata in production, now to fix this update to the new version will automatically remove this from your polyfills.ts file.
  • There has been a major change in the visual display of the content.

  • Developers can now take a look at virtual scrolling by importing DragDropModule or the ScrollingModule. This can load and then unloads elements from the DOM i.e. only the elements which are displayed are loaded and others are unloaded which helps in faster and better user experience.
  • In this new version there is now a new feature of drag and drop in the CDK, this includes automatic rendering which helps in moving of items and there are methods for reordering lists i.e. moveItemInArray and for the transfer of items between lists i.e. transferArrayItem.

<div cdkDropList class="list" (cdkDropListDropped)="drop($event)">
  <div class="box" *ngFor="let movie of movies" cdkDrag>{{movie}}</div>
drop(event: CdkDragDrop<string[]>)
    moveItemInArray(this.movies, event.previousIndex, event.currentIndex);
