How to upgrade Angular 5 application to Angular 6 with Visual Studio 2017?

Angular Update Guide – 5.2 -> 6.0 for Basic Apps

Before updating

Replace downgradeComponent, downgradeInjectable, UpgradeComponent, and UpgradeModule imported from @angular/upgrade. Instead use the new versions in @angular/upgrade/static

Switch from HttpModule and the Http service to HttpClientModule and the HttpClient service. HttpClient simplifies the default ergonomics (You don’t need to map to json anymore) and now supports typed return values and interceptors. Read more on

During the update

Make sure you are using Node 8 or later

Update your Angular CLI globally and locally, and migrate the configuration to the new angular.json format by running the following:

npm install -g @angular/cli
npm install @angular/cli
ng update @angular/cli

Update all of your Angular framework packages to v6, and the correct version of RxJS and TypeScript.

ng update @angular/core

After the update, TypeScript and RxJS will more accurately flow types across your application, which may expose existing errors in your application’s typings

Update Angular Material to the latest version.

ng update @angular/material

This will also automatically migrate deprecated APIs.

Use ng update or your normal package manager tools to identify and update other dependencies.

After the update

Remove deprecated RxJS 6 features using rxjs-tslint auto update rules.

For most applications this will mean running the following two commands:

npm install -g rxjs-tslint
rxjs-5-to-6-migrate -p src/

Once you and all of your dependencies have updated to RxJS 6, remove rxjs-compat.
