Brace yourselves, future is coming: ES6, AtScript and Angular 2.0

by Developers 2 Comments

Recently, the first AngularJS conference in Europe, ng-europe, took place in Paris. The future of Angular and beyond was the main topic in all different kind of talks. How will the new JavaScript ES6 implemented in Angular 2.0 by the AngularJS Team?

Angular 1.3 is already out and mainly focuses on better performance. Compared to version 1.2, DOM manipulation is 4.4 times faster and there’s 73% less garbage to collect. At this moment the Angular team is working hard on implementing Angular 2.0. The core will heavily change and the power of ES6 will be all over the place.[1] That’s why I will first give some information about ECMAScript 6 – the new version of JavaScript’s core.

$touched is the new $dirty – AngularJS Migration Guide 1.2 to 1.3

by Developers 2 Comments

Quite recently the AngularJS Team released the first RELEASE CANDIDATE of AngularJS 1.3. This small AngularJS migration guide should help you if you have any problems migrating from 1.2 to 1.3. I will shortly point out which changes did break our app and then I will show an example of one of the main new features: $asyncValidators

AngularJS migration: A change that can break stuff

$location

Angular now requires a <base> tag when html5 mode of $location is enabled. Reasoning: Using html5 mode without a <base href="..."> tag makes relative links for images, links, … relative to the current url if the browser supports the history API. However, if the browser does not support the history API Angular falls back to using the #, and then all those relative links would be broken.

LingoHub free app localization

Say hello to free app localization on LingoHub!

by Product news No Comments

We just introduced new subscription plans! Now there are complete packages that better suit customer project sizes and requirements. Less limitations, more possibilities!

A lot of customers bring their own translators, others hire them on freelance markets. Other projects are small teams of developers, some are bigger teams. We want to accommodate the various needs of our users and so we changed up a few things. Gone are text and project limitations. In comes a new free account. We think this ushers in new opportunities for software localization. And with our upcoming purchase options for translation services right from within LingoHub, there’s really nothing left to be desired in app translation.

Top 5 Reasons Why Localization Used to be a Pain

by Industry updates No Comments

Web or mobile app localization used to be a pain. In all likelihood I am not telling you anything new, either. But why is that? For the longest time, software developers have optimized all kinds of processes in their work (the lastest being version management, which with GIT has been so successful it has entered other industries as well, such as natural sciences, writing and lawmaking).

One aspect that is still treated with a good dose of disdain is localization. If you’ve used a decent localization management tool (such as LingoHub), you know that most of these fears are vastly overblown. Today, localization is a smooth and easy-to-integrate part of the dev cycle. If you’re nostalgic, let’s look back at why it used to be a pain…..
