Angel is no longer being maintained. You can read my reasons for discontinuing the project here: https://www.reddit.com/r/dartlang/comments/h0z413/looks_like_the_angel_webbackend_framework_wont_be/ftpaxmo/
At the moment, there is one fork of Angel that adds null-safety support. If you intend to upgrade existing Angel projects to the more recent versions of Dart, then it's your best bet.
The fork can be found here: https://github.com/dukefirehawk/angel
Existing Angel projects have three options:
- Remain on an older version of the Dart VM
- Use the forked versions of the packages to support null-safety
- Switch to a new framework, and/or language
Thanks for 4 years. It was a fun ride, but it's time for me to move on.
