SoCreate Announces Launch of Angular Playground V5.2

SoCreate is thrilled to announce Angular Playground, V5.2, revamped and better than ever!

Angular Playground by SoCreate

Since launching the original open-source Angular Playground application in May 2017, we have improved the sandbox tool to feature an improved user interface, updated documentation, and better performance. And now, Angular Playground works with Angular 6 and Angular CLI 6.

More new features include:

  • The ability to install Angular Playground with ng (easy installation of the Angular Playground)

  • Enabled UI overlay for access to the command bar in mobile/iPad testing

  • A new configuration option to easily configure and provide modules to the Playground application.

Are you a developer using Angular to build applications? Then you should be using Angular Playground!  

Why Should I Add Angular Playground to My Developer Toolbox?

Angular Playground is an open-source tool created by our team here at SoCreate that allows developers to build and work components in isolation, independent of a full application.

  • Store and quickly access your components in ANY state.

  • Stage your components with different inputs/outputs, data, mark-ups, and styles, and then access each state effortlessly the next time you need to work on it.

  • Build and edit your individual components in isolation.

  • Work on specific components of your application without having to load the entire application.

  • Easily document all your components.

  • Embed staged components within your documentation, whether it's an external style guide, a visual component library, or an entire design system. Each change to a component will be instantly reflected in your documentation.

Angular Playground can greatly increase your productivity and improve your workflow. The application is easy to set-up, so WHY NOT give it a try?

How Has Angular Playground Improved Day-to-Day Tasks for SoCreate Developers?

Since the release of the original version of Angular Playground, our developer team's productivity has greatly increased! Take it from them:  

So, if you are a developer using Angular and are looking to improve your productivity, you should check out Angular Playground, V5.2!

Here at SoCreate, our mission is to provide our community with the best tools possible, and that includes our developer community and our SoCreate Software screenwriting community. A huge thank you to our team for all the hard work that they put in every day to make Playground the absolute best it can be.
