By: Aristeidis Bampakos

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.

Creating a Tailwind component

Tailwind is a very popular CSS framework that enforces a utility-first core principle. It contains classes and styles that can be used in Angular applications to create easily composable user interfaces.

We will use the schematics API of the Angular CLI to build a generation schematic for Angular components. The schematic will generate a new Angular component that is styled with a Tailwind container layout.

Important note

The schematic that we will build does not need to have Tailwind CSS installed by default. However, the application in which we will use the schematic does require it.

Let's see how we can accomplish that:

  1. Execute the following schematics CLI command to add a new schematic to our collection:
    schematics blank tailwind-container

    The preceding command will update the collection.json file to contain a new entry for the tailwind-container schematic. It will also create a tailwind-container folder in the src folder of...
