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.

Two-way bindings

We learned how to use one way data bindings using properties and events. Angular introduces a third option to use with input controls. This directive is called ngModel. The syntax can be a little strange, because this directive combines property and event bindings together.

With ngModel, we can easily achieve two-way data binding easily. In the following example, we will bind username and password inputs to a user object:

  selector: 'app-root',
  template: `          
    <input type="text" [(ngModel)]="user.username">
    <input type="password" [(ngModel)]="user.password">
    <button (click)="sendUser()">Send</button>
export class AppComponent {
  private user = {
    username: '',
    password: ''
