Overview of this book

Are you are looking for a better, more efficient, and more powerful way of building front-end web applications? Well, look no further, you have come to the right place! This book comprehensively integrates Angular version 4 into your tool belt, then runs you through all the new options you now have on hand for your web apps without bogging you down. The frameworks, tools, and libraries mentioned here will make your work productive and minimize the friction usually associated with building server-side web applications. Starting off with building blocks of Angular version 4, we gradually move into integrating TypeScript and ES6. You will get confident in building single page applications and using Angular for prototyping components. You will then move on to building web services and full-stack web application using ASP.NET WebAPI. Finally, you will learn the development process focused on rapid delivery and testability for all application layers.

Preface

Modules (NgModules)


A module is a single unit of implementation of distinct functionalities. Collections of such modules will be used to implement complex applications. Implementing module patterns helps you avoid global collisions of variables and methods. JavaScript encapsulates both private and public methods under a single object by implementing a modular pattern. The modular pattern achieves encapsulation using closure in JavaScript. JavaScript doesn't support access modifiers; however, the same effect can be achieved using function scopes. All Angular applications are modular in nature. We develop Angular applications by creating many modules. We develop modules to encapsulate functionalities that are independent and have one responsibility. A module exports the classes available in that module. Angular modules are called as NgModules. At least one Angular module will be present in any Angular application: a root module, which will represented as AppModule. AppModule is a class decorated...
