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 this chapter, we spent some valuable time exploring and understanding our sample project’s core components, how they work together, and their distinctive roles. For the sake of simplicity, we split the analysis into two parts: the .NET back-end ecosystem, where we’ve inspected the ASP.NET Core Web API project (HealthCheckAPI), and the Angular front-end architecture, which was dedicated to the Standalone Angular project (HealthCheck). We’ve seen how each project comes with its own configuration files, folder structure, naming conventions, and overall scope.

At the end of the day, we’ve met the end goal of this chapter and learned a fair number of useful things: we know the location and purpose of both server-side and client-side source code files; we are aware of most ASP.NET Core and Angular configuration settings and parameters; we also learned how to change these settings to meet our needs, such as the Web API routing endpoints, and insert...
