Bahmni Codebase - Moving out of AngularJS
Bahmni, an open source hospital management system and EMR has over 1 Million lines of code (LoC)! Out of that over 164,000 LoC are in AngularJS (Angular 1.x). AngularJS is going to be end-of-life in Dec-2021, with no likely SLAs around fixes after Dec-2021.
In this article, I would like to shed some light into what parts of Bahmni depend on AngularJS, what parts are already in React; and suggest some steps forward to remove dependence on AngularJS. Some of this feedback has come from the Bahmni community and we continue to be on the lookout for creative means to move away from AngularJS.
This is also another reminder of how a technology that shines today — could be forgotten and left behind in the future!
