Book Preface

AngularJS is a JavaScript development framework that makes building web applications easier. It is used today in large-scale, high-traffic websites that struggle with performance and portability issues, as well as SEO unfriendliness and complexity at scale. The new version of Angular changes these.

It is the modern framework you need to build performant and robust web applications. Getting Started with Angular is the quickest way to get to grips with Angular; it will help you transition into the brave new world of Angular 2 and beyond.

By the end of the book, you’ll be ready to start building quick and efficient Angular applications that take advantage of all the new features on offer.

What this book covers

Chapter 1, Get Going with Angular, kicks off our journey into the world of Angular. It describes the main reasons behind the design decisions of the framework. We will look at the two main drivers behind the shape of the framework—the current state of the Web and the evolution of frontend development.

Chapter 2, The Building Blocks of an Angular Application, gives us an overview of the core concepts introduced by Angular 2. We’ll explore how the foundational building blocks for the development of applications provided by AngularJS differ from the ones in the last major version of the framework.

Chapter 3, TypeScript Crash Course, explains that although Angular is language agnostic, Google’s recommendation is to take advantage of the static typing of TypeScript. In this chapter, you’ll learn all the essential syntax you need to know to develop Angular applications in TypeScript.

Chapter 4, Getting Started with Angular Components and Directives, describes the core building blocks for developing the user interface of our applications—directives and components. We will dive into concepts such as view encapsulation, content projection, inputs and outputs, change detection strategies, and more. We’ll discuss advanced topics, such as template references and speeding up our applications using immutable data.

Chapter 5, Dependency Injection in Angular, covers one of the most powerful features in the framework, which was initially introduced by AngularJS: its dependency injection mechanism. It allows us to write more maintainable, testable, and understandable code. By the end of this chapter, we will know how to define the business logic in services and glue them together with the UI through the DI mechanism. We will also look at some more advanced concepts, such as the injectors hierarchy, configuring providers, and more.

Chapter 6, Working with the Angular Router and Forms, explores the new module for managing forms in the process of developing a real-life application. We will also implement a page that shows the data entered through the form. In the end, we will glue the individual pages together into an application using the component-based router.

Chapter 7, Explaining Pipes and Communicating with RESTful Services, dives into the router and the forms modules in detail. Here, we will explore how we can develop model-driven forms and define parameterized and child routes. We will also explain the HTTP module and take a look at how we can develop pure and impure pipes.

Chapter 8, Tooling and Development Experience, explores some advanced topics in the Angular application development, such as Ahead-of-Time compilation, running an application in a Web Worker, and server-side rendering. In the second part of this chapter, we will explore tools that can ease our daily life as developers, such as angular-cli, angular-seed, and more.
