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.

ASP.NET Web API Overview

The ASP.NET Web API is a framework that can be used to build RESTful services on the .NET framework. The ASP.NET Web API is based on the HTTP protocol, and it exposes the HTTP verbs/actions in the form of a URI, allowing client applications to interact with data using HTTP verbs. Any client application or device that supports HTTP communications can easily access Web API services.

As discussed in the preceding section, the RESTful service will identify resources through a URI. For example, we have, and an Angular application applies a GET request. The C# method that responds to this GET request will be on a web API controller class. The routing technique will take care of mapping the request URI with the respective controller and methods based on the route configured or annotated in the respective classes and methods.

Here, the request will be handled by a Get method in TodosController according to the default configurations...
