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.

The Angular front-end

The Angular front-end project comprises the following stuff:

  • The /src/ folder, which contains the Angular app source code files, as well as some static assets (HTML, CSS, and the like). If we look at the source code files, we can see that they have a .ts extension, which means we’ll be using the TypeScript programming language (we’ll say more about this in a bit)
  • A bunch of root files, which contain the Angular configuration settings, the required npm packages to run the app, and the scripts to build the development and production bundles to host it

The front-end part of the template will probably be seen as more complex to understand, because Angular—just like most client-side frameworks—has evolved at a dramatic pace, thus experiencing many breaking changes in its core architecture, toolchain management, coding syntax, template, and setup.

For this very reason, it’s very important to take our...
