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.

Summary


Through this chapter, we took everything we have learned so far about components and built a useful accordion widget that is composed of four components. An Angular 2 application is a collection of dynamic components that communicate with each other using properties as an input, and events as output. We can hook into each important life cycle of a component, for example, when a component is initialized or destroyed, and run our own logic.
