Ng-News: Episode 22/29

Angular 14.1

Angular 14.1 was released. A minor version upgrade means that we as developers don't have to change anything, but we get additional features, and there are quite some of them.

For example the CommonModule has now a standalone alternative. This means we can import directives like ngIf, NgFor or pipes like the asyncPipe directly.

Another new feature is the CanMatch RouterGuard. It allows us to assign multiple components to a route and we can define a logic which one of these components should be used.

We got an improvement in the testing area as well. The ComponentRef has a setInput method which sets an @Input property but also triggers the lifecycle hooks. This allows us to test the ngOnChanges hook with comonents that have ChangeDetectionStrategy set to OnPush.
