Note to self:


Going to pause this and give project dependencies (e.g. ng-bootstrap) some time to catch up.

ng-bootstrap now officially supports Angular 8. I have pushed a working branch that migrates current master from Angular 7 to Angular 8. It's a messy branch at the moment and needs a lot more testing, but wanted to get it posted:


Note it requires update Node (see changes in Makefile.install) and a 'rm -rf node_modules' and 'npm install'

Angular dev/prod, Angular tests and ng-lint all pass. Similarly AngularJS building does not appear to be negatively impacted by the NodeJS update.

Will test more and clean up branch soon.

Beware any Angular branches merged after this branch will require updates to be Angular8-compatible. There's a migration routine built in to automate the process (though in some cases it may require manual intervention).

The command:

ng update @angular/core --from 7 --to 8 --migrate-only

And when we do decide to flip the switch, I can redo the migration on current master.
