Features -

Let’s start to talk about new features in details.

Angular 7 added a new compiler that is called Angular Compatibility Compiler (ngcc).

The ngcc Angular node_module compatibility compiler - The ngcc is a tool which "upgrades" node_module compiled with non-ivy ngc into ivy compliant format.

This compiler will convert node_modules compiled with Angular Compatibility Compiler (ngcc), into node_modules which appear to have been compiled with TSC compiler transformer (ngtsc) and this compiler conversions will allow such “legacy” packages to be used by the Ivy rendering engine.

TSC transformer which removes and converts @Pipe, @Component, @Directive and @NgModule to the corresponding definePipe, defineComponent, defineDirective and defineInjector.

UrlSegment Interface - 

UrlSegment interface represents a single URL segment and the constructor, properties, and methods look like below UrlSegment class i.e.

classUrlSegment {
constructor(pathstringparameters: {...})
pathstring
parameters: {...}
toString(): string
}

The UrlSegment is a part of a URL between the two slashes and it contains a path and matrix parameters associated with the segment.

Example:
@Component({
templateUrl:'./user.component.html',
styleUrls: ['./user.component.css']
})
classUserComponent {
constructor(routerRouter) {
consturlTreeUrlTree = router.parseUrl('/user;id=101');
consturlSGroupUrlSegmentGroup = urlTree.root.children[PRIMARY_OUTLET];
consturlSegmentUrlSegment[] = urlSGroup.segments;

urlSegment[0].path// It will returns 'user'
urlSegment[0].parameters//It will returns {id: 101}
  }
}


Ivy -

The Ivy rendering engine is a new backwards-compatible Angular renderer main focused on -
1.      Speed Improvements
2.      Size Reduction
3.      Increased Flexibility

The template functions for creating dynamically views are no longer nested functions inside each other.

Now we use for loops that are nested inside other loops.

The following Example -
function AppComponent(rf: RenderFlags, ctx: AppComponent) {
    function ulTemplateFun(rf1: RenderFlags, ctx0: any) {
        function liTemplateFun(rf1: RenderFlags, ctx1: any) {...}
    }
}

No longer create multiple functions instances for loops that are nested inside other loops.

The following Example -
<ul *ngFor="let student of students">
    <li *ngFor="let subject of student'> {{ subject }} </li>
</ul>

DoBootstrap -

Angular 7 added a new lifecycle hook that is called ngDoBootstrap and an interface that is called DoBootstrap.

The following Example -
//ngDoBootstrap - Life-Cycle Hook Interface
class AppModule implements DoBootstrap {
    ngDoBootstrap(appRef: ApplicationRef) {
        appRef.bootstrap(AppComponent);
    }

}

Virtual Scrolling and Drag & Drop - Go to for detail with example

<h4>Virtual Scrolling Example -</h4>
<cdk-virtual-scroll-viewport class="viewport-section"  itemSize="100">
   <div class="item-section" *cdkVirtualFor="let item of scrollItems">Your Item Row{{item}}</div>
</cdk-virtual-scroll-viewport>

Important Notes About Angular 7 New Features :-

Most of the sites sharing below points but these are fake points. Someone made up fake release notes as a joke but developers/peoples started treating it like it was true.
A.       Splitting of @angular/core
B.      A new ng-compiler
C.      A new @angular/mine
D.      A new @aiStore


My goal is to help developers understand what's true and what's not. Please ignore above points (A,B,C,D),  if you learned from somewhere.

nullinjectorerror no provider for httpclient angular 17

In Angular 17 where the standalone true option is set by default, the app.config.ts file is generated in src/app/ and provideHttpClient(). We can be added to the list of providers in app.config.ts Step 1:   To provide HttpClient in a standalone app we could do this in the app.config.ts file, app.config.ts: import { ApplicationConfig } from '@angular/core'; import { provideRouter } from '@angular/router'; import { routes } from './app.routes'; import { provideClientHydration } from '@angular/platform-browser'; //This (provideHttpClient) will help us to resolve the issue  import {provideHttpClient} from '@angular/common/http'; export const appConfig: ApplicationConfig = {   providers: [ provideRouter(routes),  provideClientHydration(), provideHttpClient ()      ] }; The appConfig const is used in the main.ts file, see the code, main.ts : import { bootstrapApplication } from '@angular/platform-browser'; import { appConfig } from '
