Angular 17, an upgrade to Google’s popular TypeScript-based web development framework, is due in November with template features including a new built-in syntax for control flow and deferrable loading.
A September 25 blog post from Alex Rickabaugh of the Angular team covered the planned capabilities, with declarative control flow set to add the functionality of the NgIf, NgFor, and NgSwitch directives into the framework itself. Deferrable loading, meanwhile, allows templates to load dependencies lazily in response to trigger conditions; the team described the change as the most significant made to Angular templates. Work continues on finishing up these features. Angular 17 will use a syntax dubbed @-syntax for control flow and deferrable views.
