About those Side-effects in Observables, an Angular Use Case

When testing a codebase in Angular Ivy, I ran into a bunch of test failures I wasn’t seeing before. ExpressionChangedAfterItHasBeenCheckedErrors were being thrown around. In debugging these failures, I found that many of them are the results of side-effects in Observables and Observable pipe operations. I happened to describe these earlier in my piece on […]

Data and Page Content Refresh patterns in Angular

Part of why I recommend using RxJS Observables all the way through in Angular TypeScript code, and only unpacking them at the closest point to where the UI is declared (often using the | async pipe), is because it makes other transformations on an Observable available and convenient. Two such examples include retry and refresh logic. Two […]

I typically review a fair amount of Angular code at work. One thing I typically encourage is using plain Observables in an Angular Component, and using AsyncPipe (foo | async) from the template html to handle subscription, rather than directly subscribing to an observable in a component TS file.
