Chapter 2: Building an SPA Application with Scully and Angular Router

Angular applications follow the Single Page Application (SPA) architecture, where different views of the web page can be activated according to the browser URL. Any changes to that URL can be intercepted by the Angular router and translated to routes that can activate a particular Angular component.

Scully is a popular static website generator that is based on the Jamstack architecture. It can cooperate nicely with the Angular router to prerender the content of an Angular application according to each route.

In this chapter, we are going to combine Angular and Scully to create a personal blog. The following topics are going to be covered:

  • Setting up routing in an Angular application
  • Creating the basic layout of our blog
  • Configuring routing for our application
  • Adding blog capabilities with Scully
  • Displaying blog posts on the home page
