Lazy loading is a technique to load the content only when the user asks for it. Therefore, the initial loading of the webpage is much faster as the complete page is not loaded. In case of lots of images on the webpage, it is always recommended to use lazy loading for the images. As an example, while showing a photo gallery, there is no point loading all the images in one go as the user may leave after only viewing the first few images and this would result in slower loading and waste of bandwidth. In such scenarios, lazy loading is an ideal choice. This post talks about how to lazy load images in Angular 6.
When Angular CLI was released, it instantly got the attention, and many developers started using it as it took away all the pain to create Angular based applications. Angular CLI performs every activity required for an angular application starting from creating to deploying the app. You don’t have to spend time for webpack configurations, making tests run, fixing source maps as the CLI takes care. But, one will have to remember all the CLI commands to use it efficiently. To address this, a new tool is available called “Angular Console”. It’s a visual representation of angular CLI. In this post, we’ll see how to get started with Angular Console and create an angular application using the same.

ngFor directive. In this post, we’ll find out how to use this new
KeyValue pipe with Angular 6.1 with examples. (more…)
