Thank you Lars. Very good input.

  1. I'll add providedIn: MyModule. Also thinking about examples when to use what. Especially now with Ivy and the "any" provider 🤔

  2. Good point. What would you say, would you completely remove the example or rather mark it as deprecated?

Thank you for your feedback 💪

  1. I have an example of what to use a module scope for in my article "Tree-shakable dependencies in Angular projects". Of course, the providedIn: MyModule syntax is just the tree-shakable way of expressing the module provider scope that's been around since v2.0.0 (the providers metadata for Angular modules).

  2. I would say remove it. It's been deprecated for almost 3 years (since v4.0.0). Some projects use it for dynamic injection tokens, but that's an edge case and should be implemented using a Map of InjectionTokens or something like that instead.
