Build optimizer

With Angular 5.0, Google has been able to mark the parts of users’ app as pure, which removes the parts of users’ application which aren’t needed. It even removes the Angular decorators from the users’ application code run time.

Angular universal state transfer API

The API is focused specifically on helping the developers perform the server-side rendering of the Angular applications. By doing this and then bootstrapping it on HTML generated, one can give support to the crawlers and scrapers, which do not support JavaScript, thus increasing your application’s performance.

New router lifecycle event

It allows the developers to track cycle of their router from the very start of the running guards till the completion of the activation.

Improvements in compiler

The improvements now provide fast rebuilds, specifically for the production builds and those with AOT. There have also been features addition in the Decoraters, which now makes it possible to ship small bundles by eliminating the whitespaces.

Reduced loading time

A greater loading time implies greater user dissatisfaction and lowering user patience. A factor that translates in greater app abandonment numbers, and greatly dissatisfied customers along with poor productivity. Angular 5.0 has introduced an API called the Service Worker that is made in sync with the concept of Progressive Web Apps. Now with the API, when the app utilizes caches to serve its users, one can expect the app to showcase offline mode functionalities.

UX to go better with enhanced material design

AngularJS 5 is to make Material Design components compatible with server-side rendering. The attempt by Google will help in improving the visual language that users understand the best irrespective of their ages. If you are an AngularJS developer, hold your breath as Google is yet in the process of eliminating a few bugs before releasing this functionality.

Lower app abandonment rate

The number reason behind app abandonment has been slug issues. When it comes to the app users, they have very less patience towards the apps that work slow and even worse is not responsive. Both the issues, clubbing as app’s poor performance together increases the app abandonment and bounce rates.


As the tool comes in as default, the developers don’t have to do anything extra to make it come into the process. It helps reduce the mobile application size by leaving out the unnecessary codes.
