    What we're working on now (Q3 2020):

    • Trying to get anything done at all during a global pandemic.
    • Visual refresh and updates to http://material.angular.io
    • Hosting summer interns working on cdk-experimental implementations for menu, listbox, & combobox.
    • Remaining test harnesses for Angular Material components.
    • Continuing to create new, API-compatible versions of the Angular Material components backed by MDC Web (see @jelbourn's ng-conf talk). Much of our effort is dedicated towards rolling out these new versions of the components across Angular apps inside Google. This work will payoff with the following benefits:
      • Dramatically improve consistency with the Material Design spec, which has changed significantly since Angular Material's 2016 inception.
      • Introduce a new theming API for component density, a top feature request.
      • Fix a number of longstanding accessibility bugs.
      • Increase number of people working to continuously improve the components on an on-going basis (both the Angular team and the Material Design team).
    • Initial work on virtual-scroll support for cdk/table.

    About the team

    The Angular Components team is part of the Angular team at Google. The team includes both Google employees and community contributors from around the globe.

    Our team has two primary goals:

    • Build high-quality UI components that developers can drop into existing applications
    • Provide tools that help developers build their own custom components with common interaction patterns

    What do we mean by "high-quality" components?

    • Internationalized and accessible so that all users can use them.
    • Straightforward APIs that don't confuse developers.
    • Behave as expected across a wide variety of use-cases without bugs.
    • Behavior is well-tested with both unit and integration tests.
    • Customizable within the bounds of the Material Design specification.
    • Performance cost is minimized.
    • Code is clean and well-documented to serve as an example for Angular developers.

    Browser and screen reader support

    The Angular Components team supports the most recent two versions of all major browsers: Chrome (including Android), Firefox, Safari (including iOS), and IE11 / Edge.

    We aim for great user experience with the following screen readers:

    • Windows: NVDA and JAWS with IE11 / FF / Chrome.
    • macOS: VoiceOver with Safari / Chrome.
    • iOS: VoiceOver with Safari
    • Android: Android Accessibility Suite (formerly TalkBack) with Chrome.
    • Chrome OS: ChromeVox with Chrome.
