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.

This chapter was all about PWAs: we spent some valuable time better understanding the high-level distinctive features of this modern web development pattern and how to translate them into technical specifications. Right after that, we started implementing them, taking into account the various available options offered by our front-end and back-end frameworks.

Since the PWA concept is closely related to the front-end aspects of our app, we chose to adopt the Angular way of implementing their required capabilities; with that in mind, we chose to take the manual route for our HealthCheck app first, then to experience the automatic installation feature powered by the Angular CLI for the WorldCities app. In both scenarios, we made good use of the @angular/service-worker npm package, a module available since Angular 5 that provides a fully featured service worker implementation that can be easily integrated into our apps.

Once done, we took some time to understand how we...
