Building and Deploying Angular Tests

In the last chapter, you learned how to install, customize, and extend a Bootstrap CSS framework; how to use NgBootstrap components; and how to connect Angular services with components and UI interfaces. Now, let's look at another key point in Angular applications: tests.

Tests are a great way to check your application code to find issues. In this chapter, you will learn how to test Angular applications, how to configure application linters (for SCSS and TSLint files) to keep code consistency, and how to create npm build scripts. In addition, you will learn how to create a Docker image for a frontend application.

In this chapter, we will cover the following:

  • Setting application linters
  • Understanding Angular tests
  • Writing unit and e2e tests
  • Application deployment
