Overview of this book

Packed with practical advice and detailed recipes, this updated second edition of Angular Projects will teach you everything you need to know to build efficient and optimized web applications using Angular. Among the things you’ll learn in this book are the essential features of the framework, which you’ll master by creating ten different real-world web applications. Each application will demonstrate how to integrate Angular with a different library and tool. As you advance, you’ll familiarize yourself with implementing popular technologies, such as Angular Router, Scully, Electron, Angular service worker, Nx monorepo tools, NgRx, and more while building an issue tracking system. You’ll also work on a PWA weather application, a mobile photo geotagging application, a component UI library, and many other exciting projects. In the later chapters, you’ll get to grips with customizing Angular CLI commands using schematics. By the end of this book, you will have the skills you need to be able to build Angular apps using a variety of different technologies according to your or your client’s needs.

Essential background theory and context

Angular schematics are libraries that can be installed using npm. They are used in various situations, including creating components that share a standard user interface or even enforcing conventions and coding guidelines inside an organization. A schematic can be used standalone or as a companion for an existing Angular library.

Angular schematics are packaged into collections, and they reside in the @schematics/angular npm package. When we use the Angular CLI to run the ng add or the ng build command, it runs the appropriate schematic from that package. The Angular CLI currently supports the following types of schematics:

  • Add schematic: This is used to install an Angular library in an Angular CLI workspace using the ng add command.
  • Update schematic: This is used to update an Angular library using the ng update command.
  • Generate schematic: This is used to generate Angular artifacts in an Angular CLI workspace using the ng...
