Easier lazy loading ,Angular 15

Angular 15, the latest version of the popular JavaScript framework, was recently released with several new features and improvements. One of the most notable features is the easier lazy loading of modules, which can significantly improve the performance of your Angular applications.

Lazy loading is a technique that allows you to load parts of your application only when they are needed, rather than loading everything up front. This can significantly reduce the initial load time of your application, making it faster and more responsive for users.

In previous versions of Angular, implementing lazy loading was somewhat complex, requiring developers to write custom code and manipulate the routing configuration. However, in Angular 15, lazy loading has become much easier thanks to the introduction of a new “magic comment” syntax.

Here’s an example of how to use the new lazy loading syntax in Angular 15:

// app-routing.module.ts
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { Routes, RouterModule } from '@angular/router';

const routes: Routes = [
    path: 'lazy',
    loadChildren: () => import('./lazy/lazy.module').then(m => m.LazyModule)

  imports: [RouterModule.forRoot(routes)],
  exports: [RouterModule]
export class AppRoutingModule { }

Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

As you can see, the syntax is straightforward and requires minimal setup. You simply specify the path to your lazy-loaded module and the module itself in the loadChildren property.

In conclusion, Angular 15 makes lazy loading much easier and accessible to developers, allowing them to improve the performance of their applications with minimal effort. If you’re already using Angular in your projects, make sure to upgrade to Angular 15 and take advantage of this powerful new feature.
