ASP.NET Core 6 and Angular - Fifth Edition

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.

In order to handle JWT-based token authentication, we need to set up our ASP.NET back-end and our Angular front-end to handle all the required tasks.

In the previous sections, we spent a good amount of time configuring the .NET Core Identity services and middlewares, meaning that we’re halfway done; as a matter of fact, we’re almost done with the server-side tasks. At the same time, we did nothing at the front-end level: the sample users that we created in the previous section—[email protected] and [email protected]—have no way to log in, and there isn’t a registration form for creating new users.

However, if we think about what we did during the previous chapters, we should already know what to do to fill such gap: implementing an interactive login (and possibly a registration) form, using the same techniques adopted for CityEditComponent and CountryEditComponent.
