Introduction to Angular
In this module you'll see what Angular is all about and why it is so important in modern web development.
- Evolution in Web App Development
- Basic Node.js and Angular project structure
- Angular Core and Modules
Many constructs to tame complex code like interfaces and strong typing are completely absent.
And many of the new cool JS features are not implemented in current browsers.
- Typescript configuration
- Implementing Types, Classes and Inheritance
- Namespaces and Modules
- LAB - Building a Web Shop with TypeScript
In this module you'll get acquainted with the most important building blocks for any Angular application.
This is the foundation of all following chapters.
- Angular CLI and other Tools
- LAB - Creating an Angular Application
It allows you to inject data into a view without creating a strong dependency between the two.
This results into more flexible, testable and maintainable code.
- The Importance of Binding
- Component to View
- Structural Directives
- Local Template Variables
- Value Conversion
- View to Component
- LAB - Data Binding
In this module we'll dive a bit deeper into Components.
You'll learn how to create a hierarchy of components and how to communicate between them.
You'll also take a look at some component libraries like Angular Material and how they can make you more productive
- Using Multiple Components
- Input and Output
- ViewChild and ContentChild
- Directive Life Cycle
- Component Libraries
- LAB - Building components
Attribute and Structural Directives
A component always has a view. But what if you just want to add custom behavior to an existing element?
In this module you'll explore existing directives like NgIf, NgFor, NgClasses, ... And learn how to build your own.
- Attribute Directives
- Structural Directives
- Built-in Directives
Dependency Injection and Providers
Dependency Injection (DI) is the art of taking two strongly coupled objects and tearing them apart.
This helps you write understandable, maintainable and testable code. It's not really a choice in Angular either:
you have to do it.
Angular has an entire mechanism based on Providers to support DI which you will explore in this module.
- Dependency Injection Basics
- Injection Tokens
- LAB - Building Services and using Dependency Injection
Pipes are a convenient way to make little changes to values in a view.
This includes formatting and filtering of data. It's easy to use and to extend the possibilities of pipes.
- Using a Pipe
- Built-in Pipes
- Custom Pipes
- Pure versus Impure
- LAB - Build your own Conversion Pipe
Working with Forms
Forms are essential to any app that allows you to manage data.
You need to do more than just data binding. You need validation, automatic formatting, respond to data changes a so
Angular provides two different approaches to dealing with this: Template-driven forms and Model-driven forms.
This module will explore both.
- What's in a Form
- Responding to Changes
- Data Validation
- LAB - Capturing and Validating Input with Forms
Talking to the Server
This module will teach you how to retrieve and send data to your backend.
We will focus on REST and use RxJS Observables to get the job done.
- Sending and Receiving Data
- HTTPClient Module
- HTTP Interceptors
- Observables versus Promises
- LAB - Communication with REST Web Services
Building a Single Page Application
Instead of hopping from one page to the next, you can design your website as a Single Page Application.
This makes your website feel and perform more like an application. SPAs have many advantages, but are usually
difficult to implement.
This module will teach about the constructs available in Angular to build a SPA.
- What is a SPA
- Router Module
- Route Configuration
- Parent-Child Navigation
- Route Guards
- LAB - RECAP - Setting up a Complete Single Page Application with Routing
just web content. With Angular, you can exploit these new and modern concepts to take it to the next level. By
using a componentized approach, Angular is better equipped than ever to build performant data-driven web-apps.
While Angular takes care of data binding, navigation and server communication, TypeScript allows you
application more maintainable, better structured and flexible.
