ASP.NET Core 6 and Angular - Fifth Edition

By: Valerio De Sanctis

Overview of this book

Every full-stack ninja needs the tools to operate on front-end and back-end application development. This web app development book takes a hands-on, project-based approach to provide you with all the tools and techniques that web developers need to create, debug, and deploy efficient web applications using ASP.NET Core and Angular. The fifth edition has been updated to cover advanced topics such as Minimal APIs, Web APIs with GraphQL, real-time updates with SignalR, and new features in .NET 6 and Angular 13. You begin by building a data model with Entity Framework Core, alongside utilizing the Entity Core Fluent API and EntityTypeConfiguration class. You'll learn how to fetch and display data and handle user input with Angular reactive forms and front-end and back-end validators for maximum effect. Later, you will perform advanced debugging and explore the unit testing features provided by (.NET 6) and Jasmine, as well as Karma for Angular. After adding authentication and authorization to your apps, you will explore progressive web applications, learning about their technical requirements, testing processes, and how to convert a standard web application to a PWA. By the end of this web development book, you will understand how to tie together the front-end and back-end to build and deploy secure and robust web applications.

Angular unit tests

Luckily enough, this time, we won’t need to install anything since the ASP.NET Core and Angular Visual Studio template that we’ve used to create our WorldCities project already contains everything we need to write app tests for our Angular application.

More specifically, we can already count on the following packages, which we briefly introduced in Chapter 3, Looking Around:

  • Jasmine: A JavaScript testing framework that fully supports the BDD approach that we talked about earlier
  • Karma: A tool that lets us spawn browsers and run our Jasmine tests inside them (and show their results) from the command line
  • Protractor: An end-to-end test framework that runs tests against Angular applications from within a real browser, interacting with it as if it were a real user
