Upgrading Angular 4 to Angular 7

Upgrading Angular 4 to Angular 7

I will be coding with Angular 7 in the near future and need to upgrade a project I created with Angular 4. This will be part of my preparation.

What steps need to be taken?

Thanks.

The best way to do this is the Angular update guide
https://update.angular.io/

Personally I would do an upgrade from 4 - 6 first.
Make a backup of your project (minuse node_modules)
Do the 4-6 upgrade
Make the changes they recommend regarding the breaking changes (specifically around rxjs).
When that is working do the 6-7 upgrade.

I recently did a 4-7 upgrade and spent a lot of time trying to get the project back to a working state.
