Angular 2 Universal in Twig
Angular 2 is a complete overhaul of the popular front end framework. Under the hood there are major upgrades in terms of performance as well as a more simple and elegant application structure in general. Based on Web Components, Angular 2 looks to be gaining momentum and it looks like the risks of a complete rewrite have paid off for the team.
Angular Universal is their own flavour of server side rendering of Angular applications. Angular has support for Node.js, but are also coming up with solutions for .NET, Java and PHP. The PHP flavour is being built together with the Drupal 8 development team using Twig.
