In the previous Radar, we moved AngularJS into the Hold ring (where it remains in this edition). When it comes to Angular 2, we're seeing mixed messages. Over the past year some teams at ThoughtWorks have used Angular 2 successfully and consider it a solid choice. However, Angular 2 is a rewrite, not an evolution, of AngularJS, and switching from AngularJS to Angular 2 is not much different than switching from AngularJS to another framework. Given the, in our experience, superior contenders such as React.js, Ember.js and Vue.js, we're still hesitant to give Angular 2 a strong recommendation. We do want to highlight, though, that it is not a bad choice, especially if you bought into TypeScript.
