PrimeNG 1.0.0-beta.20 Released

PrimeNG beta20 is now available with 3 new components and maintenance improvements. Our initial plan was to do RC1 next week without a new beta however due to community feedback, we’ve decided to do beta20 right before next week’s RC1 release.

Horizontal Tree

Horizontal is the new orientation for tree component enabled by setting orientation=”horizontal”. After 1.0, we’ll create a separate organization chart component.


Steps is a menu component that indicates steps in a flow.


Inplace provides an easy to do editing and display at the same time where clicking the output displays the actual content.

Column Grouping

Column grouping feature of DataTable has been reimplemented to enable custom content support inside grouped headers which has been a popular request. This is a breaking change and the last breaking change before the RC according to the plan. Please visit the demo for the new declarative approach.

New Features and Enhancements

Our plan is to do 1.0.RC1 next week with AOT support and maintenance improvements followed by week RCs until final release on November. We’ll also include lazy loading to showcase to reduce loading times and provide more tutorials for CLI integration.

PrimeNG 1.0.0-beta.19 Released

PrimeNG 1.0.0-beta.19 is now available featuring the native calendar component, new blockui component, controllable tab close for tabview, picklist enhancements and maintenance fixes.

Native Calendar

We were using jQuery UI datepicker widget for the calendar component which causes a dependency to jquery, jquery ui and jquery ui timepicker, a bit too much for a commonly used component. New calendar is native and does not require jquery, along the way we had to do some changes to the component to work directly with dates instead of string as a result component is not backward compatible.


BlockUI is a new component to block either the whole page or a specific component like panels, datatable, datagrid, fieldset and more.

Full Changelog

PrimeNG is fully open source and available at NPM.

Roadmap to 1.0

Next version will be 1.0.0-rc.1 due 2nd of november, then we’ll do two more RCs each week and plan to release 1.0 final on 23rd of november. 1.0 will be a milestone of stability so until final release, we’ll focus on maintenance rather than new features. After 1.0, we’ll add exciting new stuff like spreadsheet component, frozen columns-rows, row grouping, pivot table, customizable filters for datatable and port our premium PrimeFaces templates such as Poseidon to PrimeNG.

PrimeNG has been a success so far with close to 30k downloads monthly, used in many projects varying from corporate to startups all around the world. We’re also glad to see interest in PrimeNG PRO and the premium templates such as Ultima, as a result PrimeTek will invest even more resources for PrimeNG in 2017.

PrimeNG Roadmap
Our plan is to do the first release candidate of PrimeNG by the end of october, the blocking enhancement is rewriting the p-calendar as a native component so that we can avoid the dependency to jquery, jquery-ui so that the only jquery dependant component would be p-schedule. At the moment, 95% of the components in PrimeNG are native and the rest are likely to stay as wrappers e.g. google maps. Once 1.0 is out, we’ll offer more new features, bi-weekly releases and more premium templates. According to our research, PrimeNG is miles ahead of any competition and we’ll keep developing it. We want to repeat the success of PrimeFaces in Angular2 world so work day and night to reach this goal.


Ultima closely follows Material Design language with ripple effects, input animations, shadows, cards and more. It is highly customizable with 144 layout combinations in total.

3 Menu Modes

Ultima has 3 menu alternatives,

  • Inline
  • Overlay
  • Horizontal

Light and Dark Menu

Menu has two color alternatives, light and dark that can be used with the 3 orientations listed above.

12 Themes

Next-gen layouts provide multiple themes for the layout and Ultima is no exception, based on material colors, Ultima provides 12 themes out of the box and it is also very easy to come up with your own with sass variables.

2 User Profile Locations

User profile menu can either be located inside the main menu or at topbar.

Topbar Menus

An icon at topbar provides a submenu and in responsive mode they are displayed as stacked.

Enhanced Mobile Experience

On a mobile device, Ultima applies theme colors to the device status and browser bar for a unified look, in addition mobile events such as swipe are enabled to close the overlay menu.

Templates Pages

Landing, login and error pages are provided
as template pages to get started with building your app in no time.


Next-gen layouts are created with Sass, this simplifies maintaining the styles and allows easy customization. For example, we’ve documented how to create your own theme-layout colors for Ultima in case you need something different than the 12 provided themes.

Material Icons

Google has provided over 400 great looking material icons and we’ve converted them into PrimeFaces icons meaning they can be used with the regular ui-icon-* prefix within your component.
