Introducing CRUD modules

CRUD modules are the basic building blocks of a MEAN application. Each CRUD module consists of two structures supporting the Express and Angular functionalities. The Express part is built upon a Mongoose model, an Express controller, and an Express routes file. The Angular module is a bit more complex and contains a set of templates and a few Angular components, service, and the routing configuration. In this chapter, you'll learn how to combine these components in order to build an example Article CRUD module. The examples in this chapter will continue directly from those in previous chapters, so copy the final example from Chapter 7, Introduction to Angular, and let's start from there.
