In this post Kristian Poslek gives insight on how to design the architecture of an Angular application and not go insane in the process.
Angular 1.5 is set to introduce the .component() helper method, which is much simpler than the .directive() definition and advocates best practices and common default behaviours. Using .component() will allow developers to write in an Angular 2 style as well, which will in turn make upgrading to Angular 2 an easier feat. In this post, Todd Motto compares the differences in syntax and the super neat abstraction that .component() gives us over using the .directive() method.
As the year draws to a close, the Angular team is closer than ever to releasing a stable version of Angular 2.0. This will reshape the way Angular applications are developed, but for the better. In this article, Thomas Greco shows you some of the core concepts in Angular 2.0, and how they can be used. Specifically, he will take you through the process of building a component in Angular 2 from start to finish. First, he will take a detailed look at how this is done using TypeScript, then migrate the Angular component, so that it works using plain ES5.
In this blog post, Ryan Chenkie tells us about what's new with Angular 2 authentication and how to use angular2-jwt to make it easier.
AngularJS 1.x gained an unprecedented following in the past few years. Author if this blog post, Sander Mak, uses it heavily in his applications. All the more reason to dive into the next iteration of this widely popular framework: Angular2.
Using controllerAs syntax is the agreed way to prepare your code for the migration to Angular 2. But with all its awesomeness it makes some basic tasks tricky. Injecting $scope seems to be frowned upon. In this article Avi Ben Yosef answers some questions about $scope and should you still use it.
