Chapter 8. Creating a MEAN CRUD Module

In the previous chapters, you learned how to set up each framework and how to connect them all together. In this chapter, you're going to implement the basic operational building blocks of a MEAN application, the CRUD module. CRUD modules consist of a base entity with the basic functionality of creating, reading, updating, and deleting entity instances. In a MEAN application, your CRUD module is built from the server-side Express components and an Angular client module. In this chapter, we'll cover the following topics:

  • Setting up the Mongoose model

  • Creating the Express controller

  • Wiring the Express routes

  • Creating and organizing the Angular module

  • Understanding Angular forms

  • Introducing the Angular http client

  • Implementing the Angular module service

  • Implementing the Angular module components
