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.

Implementing the PWA requirements

To perform the required implementation steps that we’ve focused on in the previous section, we have two choices:

  • Perform a manual update of our app’s source code
  • Use the automatic installation feature provided by the Angular CLI

To learn the most from the experience, both of these paths should be taken at least once. Luckily enough, we have two existing Angular apps to experiment with. Therefore, we’ll take the manual route for our HealthCheck app first, then we’ll experience the automatic CLI setup for the WorldCities app.

Manual installation

In this section, we’ll see how to manually implement the required technical steps we’re still missing to make our HealthCheck app fully compliant with the PWA requirements.

Let’s briefly recap them:

  • Add the @angular/service-worker npm package (package.json)
  • Enable service worker support in the Angular CLI...
