Overview of this book

As Angular continues to reign as one of the top JavaScript frameworks, more developers are seeking out the best way to get started with this extraordinarily flexible and secure framework. Learning Angular, now in its fourth edition, will show you how you can use it to achieve cross-platform high performance with the latest web techniques, extensive integration with modern web standards, and integrated development environments (IDEs). The book is especially useful for those new to Angular and will help you to get to grips with the bare bones of the framework to start developing Angular apps. You'll learn how to develop apps by harnessing the power of the Angular command-line interface (CLI), write unit tests, style your apps by following the Material Design guidelines, and finally, deploy them to a hosting provider. Updated for Angular 15, this new edition covers lots of new features and tutorials that address the current frontend web development challenges. You’ll find a new dedicated chapter on observables and RxJS, more on error handling and debugging in Angular, and new real-life examples. By the end of this book, you’ll not only be able to create Angular applications with TypeScript from scratch, but also enhance your coding skills with best practices.

All the nice features we might want are already baked in, including syntax, error highlighting, and automatic builds. Another reason for its broad popularity is the various extensions available in the marketplace that enrich the Angular development workflow. What makes VS Code so great is not only its design and ease of use but also the access to a ton of plugins, and there are some great ones for Angular development. The most popular are included in the Angular Essentials extension pack from John Papa. To get it, go through the following steps:

  1. Navigate to the Extensions menu of VS Code.
