Managing State in Angular Applications

Managing state is a hard problem. We need to coordinate multiple backends, web workers, and UI components, all of which update the state concurrently. Patterns like Redux make some of this coordination explicit, but they don’t solve the problem completely. It is much broader.

What should we store in memory and what in the URL? What about the local UI state? How do we synchronize the persistent state, the URL, and the state on the server? All these questions have to be answered when designing the state management of our applications.

In this article I will cover six types of state, the typical mistakes we make managing them in Angular applications, and the patterns we should use instead.

Decorators are a core concept when developing with Angular 2 and above. There’s also an official TC39 proposal, currently at Stage-2, so expect decorators to become a core language feature soon in JavaScript as well.

Back to Angular, the internal codebase uses decorators extensively and in this post we’re going to look at the different types of decorators, the code they compile to and how they work.
