After the success of Angular 13, Angular 14 was released on 2nd June 2022. It supports Typescript 4.7. The latest update of Angular 14 has created exciting opportunities for typed forms, improved template diagnosis, and other stand-alone parts. The Angular 14 is carefully seasoned for NG modules and depletes the boilerplate coding during the start of the application.
Before we delve into the features of Angular14, let’s have a quick look at the difference between Angular13 and Angular14. The latest version of Angular has removed the annoying GitHub issue. Now, you don’t need a route.title anymore because in Angular14 the title can be easily added without any additional import.
Check out the new and exciting features of Angular14 for angular developers. In this blog, We’ll see the new feature in Angular Version 14.
In angular 14, this feature provides a simplified way to build an application using angular. Standalone components, directives, and pipes aim to simplify the authoring experience by reducing the need for ngModule.
Add this feature with the command:
ng generate component
Pips, components, and directives can now be highlighted as
Angular classes marked as standalone do not need to be declared in an ng Module
Typed Reactive From
This feature assures that the values inside formGroup, formArrays, and formControls are type-safe across the entire API texture. This enables safer forms, especially for extremely nested complex cases.
When you type the command Ng update for angular version 13 to 14 will replace all form classes with untyped versions (for example, FormGroup to UntypedFormGroup, FormControl to UntypedFormControl).
This Feature has been improved:
- More responsive look and feel
- The form is nowadays easier to utilize and less confusing to the developer
- Form validation errors are not displayed as pop-ups after submitting data but are displayed at once on the screen
Page Title Accessibility
Another best practice is providing that your app’s page titles uniquely communicate the page’s contents. v13.2 facilitates this with the new Route. title property in the Angular Router.
Now requires no additional imports and is strongly typed when adding a title. You can be required to configure more complex title logic by providing a custom TitleStrategy.
Extended Developer Diagnostics
Diagnostics give compile-time warnings with specific, actionable guidance for your templates, catching bugs before run-time. We are thrilled about the flexible framework this introduces for developers to add diagnostics in the future.
Catch the error like a Banana in a box on your two-way data bindings
A developer syntax mistake is to reverse the brackets and parentheses in two-way binding, writing () rather than [()]. Since () brackets look like a banana and  parentheses look like a box, we called this error like
(Banana In A Box)
While this error is technically valid syntax, our CLI can acknowledge that this is rare as developers intend. In the previous release, we introduced messaging on this mistake and guidance on how to resolve this, all within the CLI and your code editor.
Angular CLI Enhancements
Angular CLI auto-completion is that you can enhance productivity by delivering the required commands to create directives, modules, and components for your project. However, the Angular v14 has plenty of commands convenient for you.
1. ng completion
when you accidentally type the command on server instead of ng serve this happens all time. That’s why Angular v14 introduces new command
ng completion for real-time type-ahead autocomplete! You can also run the ng completion command in CLI and the CLI will automatically set.
2. ng analytics
analytics command allows you to control analytics environments and print analytics information. The more detailed output communicates your analytics structures and provides our team with telemetry data to inform our project prioritization.
3. ng cache
ng-cache provides a way to print and control cache data from the CLI. You can manage statistics and information.

Angular 14 is one of the most anticipated versions With so many new features and enhancements. The standalone components of Angular14 enable developers to keep up with the trends. It also promotes easy and quick app development solutions. The type of script based framework allows the developer to stay on track with their customer requirements and online ecosystem.
