PrimeNG 1.0.0-beta.7 Released

PrimeTek is excited to announce the new beta release for PrimeNG featuring new charts, new editor, new Grid CSS, validation features and many more. There are 25 filed improvements.

No more PrimeUI JS

With beta7, we’ve removed the javascript dependency to PrimeUI by converting the remaining bits as native. Currently majority of components are native and there are a couple of components with 3rd party dependencies. These are, calendar, slider, schedule, gmap, editor and schedule, rest are native.

Grid CSS

Grid CSS has been redone to provide more flexible and easy to use layout utility. We’ll use it in upcoming premium layouts of PrimeNG as well.


Angular2 provides some state css classes for input fields such as ng-dirty, ng-valid, ng-touched, we’ve made use of them by applying our error styling.

New Charts and Editor

Charts have been reimplemented and updated to Charts.js 2.1.x, instead of having separate chart components like p-pieChart, we now have p:chart with type=”pie”. This is a breaking change but allows greater flexibility to customize charts.js. In addition, quill editor has been updated that fixes some problems and adds handy new features.

New Features and Enhancements

Defect Fixes


All demos and documentation are available at PrimeNG website. Right now it might seem that page is slow due to using system.js doing many requests, we’ll switch to webpack soon to bundle the javascript to speed up the demos.


We need to do a couple of more things to do before releasing 1.0 final, these are fileupload and inputmask components along with enhancements to the datatable. Not definite yet but a spreadsheet component is also being considered. We’d like to do after Angular2 goes final so our roadmap depends on Angular2 release.

Tooltips has received a facelift and custom positioning.

PrimeNG 1.0.0-beta.6 Released

PrimeTek is pleased to announce the new beta for PrimeNG 1.0 featuring 2 brand new components, 8 native menu reimplementations and general defect fixes.

New Components

Tooltip and TabMenu are the new additions to the suite. Moreover, we’ve reimplemented menu, menubar, tieredMenu, slideMenu, contextMenu, breadcrumb, megamenu and panelMenu as native angular2 components instead of using jquery widgets of prime.


In beta7 we’ll remove the remaning javascript dependencies of PrimeNG to PrimeUI which are column resize, reorder and scrolling of datatable. This means, in next week’s 0.7 release, PrimeNG will not use any javascript from PrimeUI, and only use css. This is interesting because back in january when we announced PrimeNG, our initial plan was to provide Angular2 wrappers to our PrimeUI widgets, along the way we’ve realized that this approach has various shortcomings and writing native angular2 components is quite fun so reimplemented all of of them as native. We’ll keep schedule as it is based on jquery full calendar and but have plans to reimplement datetimepicker and slider instead of using jquery ui widgets for these two. These 3 work really well within the context of angular2 but one less dependency is always tempting when you create a library.



We plan to do beta.7 by end of may, next week we’ll update the premium layouts and themes of PrimeNG (rio, modena, adamantium, olympos) to latest Angular2 version. In addition, we’ll do some changes to material ones to align them better to the material spec, especially form components and more ripple effects. As mentioned above, beta7 will break javascript dependency to PrimeUI so there won’t be a need to add primeui-ng-all.js anymore.

Always bet on Prime!

PrimeNG 1.0.0-beta5 Release

PrimeTek is excited to announce that PrimeNG 1.0.0-beta5 is now available featuring first class support for Angular2 RC1 and over 20 improvements.

Angular2 RC1

Angular2 is out of beta and release candidate has been released along with some breaking changes, we’ve added full support and updated PrimeNG. There is only one breaking change in PrimeNG regarding inline styles. Instead of using style=”width:50px”, use [style]=”{‘width’:’50px’}” due a recent change in Angular2.

NG-Conf Keynote

Last week at NG-Conf, the engineering director of Angular2, Brad Green has briefly mentioned PrimeNG at keynote. Watch the full keynote here;

Native Carousel

Carousel was using a PrimeUI widget depending on jQuery, for beta5, we’ve reimplemented it as a native widget. Our plan is to remove any PrimeUI javascript dependency by 1.0 final. As css is shared across PrimeFaces-PrimeUI-PrimeNG, the css dependency will stay.

New Features and Enhancements

Defect Fixes

Beta6 is planned for mid next-week and we plan to work on jquery to native conversion of the remaining components like lightbox and menus. In addition charts will be updated to new charts.js 2. In mid summer, our plan is to release PrimeNG 1.0 Final.
