What are Pure Pipes and Impure Pipes?

Pipes by default are "Pure" - they can't detect changes when a value of the primitive type or the reference of the complex type changes. Example: when an array gets a new value inserted but the Pipe applied on that array during view binding can't detect its change.

To Solve this, we can mark the pipe as "Impure" - which forces the Pipe to detect change and update the view each time the dataset changes.

<span>{{ myData | doPipe }}</span>

@Pipe({name:'doPipe', pure: false})
export class DoPipe implements PipeTransform {
  /// pipe code
}
