Forget $compile in Angular 2
Suguru Inatomi

Using DOM API directly is also a bad practice in angular, don’t recommend that. I also don’t recommend resolving to jQuery, there’s nothing you can’t do that jQuery can.

Andy Perlitch, the use-cases you mentioned can be summed up to 1 use-case which is called Overlays. This is already implemented in several angular 2 projects natively. I implemented it in my modal library (angular2-modal) and it’s also in material2 and ng-bootstrap. It does not require the compiler, only the ComponentResolverFactory which is not related to the compiler and works with AOT.

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
