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.

Let’s spend a minute briefly recapping what we learned in this chapter. First of all, we acknowledged that .NET controllers are not the only tool in the shed: as a matter of fact, any middleware is virtually able to deal with the HTTP request and response cycle—as long as it is in our application’s pipeline.

To demonstrate such a concept, we introduced HealthChecksMiddleware, a neat ASP.NET Core built-in feature that can be used to implement status monitoring services, and then we implemented it. We started with the ASP.NET Core back-end, refining our work until we were able to create a JSON-structured output; then, we switched to Angular, where we learned how to properly fetch it with a component and show it on screen through the browser’s HTML-based UI.

Last but not least, we’ve spent some valuable time improving the UI and UX of our Angular app by adding a couple of powerful layout-based features: Angular Material and Sass. Eventually...
