Overview of this book

This book is a concise guide to Angular 2 Components and is based on the stable version of Angular 2. You will start with learning about the Angular 2 Components architecture and how components differ from Angular directives in Angular 1. You will then move on to quickly set up an Angular 2 development environment and grasp the basics of TypeScript. With this strong foundation in place, you will start building components. The book will teach you, with an example, how to define component behavior, create component templates, and use the controller of your component. You will also learn how to make your components communicate with each other. Once you have built a component, you will learn how to extend it by integrating third-party components with it. By the end of the book, you will be confident with building and using components for your applications.

Chapter 2. Setting Up an Angular 2 Development Environment with angular-cli

Angular 2 takes advantage of modern web technologies and tools, which means the development environment becomes more sophisticated and requires some tools and their understanding.

Luckily, we don't need to spend time installing and configuring all the required dependencies and wiring everything together. We can use the angular-cli (command-line tool) that is being developed in parallel with Angular 2.

In this chapter, we will walk through setting up our development environment with angular-cli: how to install it and how to use it to kickstart our Angular 2 project in minutes.
