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.

We started this chapter with an introduction to RESTful services and gave you an overview of the ASP.NET Web API. We also discussed why the ASP.NET Web API is the best fit for Angular applications. Then, you learned about adding and configuring Entity Framework in an ASP.NET 5 project and the steps required to create a database using database migration. Next, we walked through the process of creating a Web API service and managing data using Entity Framework. Finally, you learned about consuming the Web API from Angular applications.

In this chapter, we discussed how to consume a Web API service from an Angular application to add, update, delete, and retrieve the Todo items from a database using Entity Framework.

In the next chapter, we will discuss how to integrate an Angular application with the ASP.NET MVC and Web API.</p
