In January of 2018 we laid out our plans for the final releases of AngularJS before entering long-term support and last year, we extended the LTS due to the global pandemic until December 31, 2021. Well, friends, the time has come and we’re no longer supporting AngularJS.

We’re incredibly proud of the work that has been done with AngularJS and the way it evolved into its successor, Angular, which empowers an ecosystem of millions of developers.

We encourage teams to upgrade their applications to the AngularJS successor Angular and benefit from productivity, scalability and improved performance. For teams still using AngularJS, please check out this post to explore some options.

Here’s what teams can expect as a part of this new long term state:

CDN links will remain active and will remain onlineWe’ll provide read-only access to the code, issue, and pull request history on GitHub by archiving the angular/angular.js repo and related repositories (that is, AngularJS Material, bower-material, etc.)The AngularJS npm packages will remain on npm and bower, marked as deprecated

For many (including many of us on the team), AngularJS has been a life-changing technology and we’re grateful to have been a part of so many development stories. AngularJS set a solid foundation for Angular and helped define the future of the web. Thank you for taking that journey with us and we hope that you continue the journey with us on Angular.

Discontinued Long Term Support for AngularJS was originally published in Angular Blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
