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

Capacitor is a native mobile runtime that enables us to build native Android and iOS applications with web technologies, including Angular. It provides an abstraction API layer for web applications to interact with the native resources of a mobile OS. It does not include a UI layer or any other way of interacting with the user interface.

Ionic is a mobile framework that contains a collection of UI components that we can use in an application built with Capacitor. The main advantage of Ionic is that we maintain a single code base across all native mobile platforms. That is, we write the code once, and it works everywhere. Ionic supports all popular JavaScript frameworks, including Angular.

Important note

When we create a new Ionic application from scratch, we also get Capacitor installed and configured out of the box.
