hilarious!
Earlier today, we asked you to tell us about all your favorite Chrome extensions. And while the ultimate winners will be revealed at a later date, Kinja user pacguy has introduced us to one sparkling diamond of an extension that, frankly, would be an injustice to keep hidden. Because friends, you need to install Cloud to Butt Plus immediately.

The elephants in every framework developer's room: authentication, logging, widgets, i18n, reporting. It is quite crowded!

Why do us application developers have to reinvent the wheel over and over again?

The debate continues: "Angular is not going to survive the rewrite"
In the last six months or so I talked to several prospective clients that had a problem finding front-end consultants in order to help their dev teams get a grip on their Angular projects. Although there are front-enders that are enthusiastic about Angular, I have the feeling that their number ...

My bad indeed! Thank you for rectifieing (I edited my previous post).  I meant to tell that a lot of changes are comming. ES6 will have a lot of big new things (classes, modules, ...) in combination with the other, new specifications ("web components") create a lot of new, more efficient ways to do things, hence I understand they are revamping a lot of stuff and I'm happy they are doing it now, at the beginning of all the other stuff that is changing as well. Directives might not dissappear but as far as I understand they will be totally different than the directives as we know them in Angular 1.x (?) as well as a lot of other things.

Again my apologies for my faulty first post.

For the freelancers among us: might be an interesting alternative for an expensive AOV.

Some more food for thought in the Angular 2.0 debate.

Let's not make "the single worst strategic mistake that any software company can make".
Single worst strategic mistake you could ever make? Rewriting code from scratch.

Optimize for change. It’s the only constant.

the problem i see is that because how the announced it now is quite bad.
Because if there is now a person that wants to start up a project and it investigates what it should use. Then if it sees angular and it learns that the next release will really be a full break
Then i think he would look at something else..
So this is not so smart.

Also having an upgrade path or migration path will just not cut it.. At least especially for us (we build tooling around angular where others build components and applications with).
If angular 2.0 would be a completely break then our users that use our development system and are using tons of 3th party components can never just move. 

What about all the open source angular projects? angular-ui, ui-grid, you name it.. What happens with those?

Because those or have to migrate also (but then 1.3 version is also dead) or they dont migrate for a while (but then those components are not usable in 2.0)

How i see it they really really just have to make sure that an 1.3 application can just run with 2.0 (with maybe some minor changes)

Else it 2.0 can also be called something else then angular, because it is just a complete new framework and the old framework is kind of dead (or is completely forked by others......)

AtScript is history. So that is one transpile-to-JS language down. One more to go!

I did not come all this way to end up putting my eggs in Microsoft's TypeScript basket (before you know it you are quoting MSDN blogs, written in ASP).

I sincerely hope that the Angular team enables us to work in plain ES6 and fix their remaining wishes WITHIN the framework, and not with some external meta language.

Good points Victor, thanks. I think I should give TypeScript the language a fair chance.

Kees has been an independent software developer since 1997 specializing in open source Java enterprise technology since 2002.

In projects he always goes the extra mile to create solutions that are simple, easily maintainable and highly extendible. Kees is on a continuous quest for “the right tool for the right job”.

His extensive knowledge of both the Java ecosystem and related (internet) protocols and standards enable me to think outside the box and almost invariably come up with solutions that are agile and elegant.
