Later, I updated the architecture to be compliant with the Angular 6 major release. Below is the approach I took, with some justifications for…

Feature toggles in systems which are heavily user-interface orientated can be a challenge. So far, I haven’t found a way to use them effectively without clogging up my code with if statements.

Below is the approach I took, with some justifications for the decisions I took. In the near future I plan to write more posts…
