ASP.NET Core 6 and Angular - Fifth Edition

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 WorldCities web app

The first thing we’re going to do is create two new projects using the two Visual Studio templates that we used in Chapter 2, Getting Ready:

  • The Standalone TypeScript Angular template, for a new Angular project
  • The ASP.NET Core Web API template, for a new Web API

In a nutshell, we just need to repeat what we did during the second part of Chapter 2, Getting Ready, where we created the HealthCheck and HealthCheckAPI projects: the only difference is that this time we’re going to give them a different name: WorldCities for the standalone TypeScript Angular project, and WorldCitiesAPI for the ASP.NET Core Web API.

Creating these two projects from scratch will be a great exercise, and a good chance to put into practice what you’ve learned until now. Let’s see if you’re able to do that without help!
