Dealing with the Angular Router and Components

We have come to one of the most important parts of Single Page Applications (SPAs): the use of routes. As you saw in Chapter 3, Understanding the Core Concepts of Angular 6, the Angular framework provides a powerful tool for dealing with application routing: @ angular/router dependency.

In the next few sections, you'll learn how to use some of these features, such as child-views, and how to create master detail pages. In addition, we will start building the application's visual field, filling in the templates with HTML markup.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Preparing the baseline code
  • Adding components to the application
  • Dealing with Angular routes
  • Configuring child routes for detail pages
  • Building frontend views
