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.

In this chapter, we looked at Material Design, a design language with paper and ink in mind.

Next, we put most of our focus on Angular Material, the Material Design implementation meant for Angular, and how it consists of different components. We looked at a hands-on explanation of how to install it, set it up, and use some of its core components and themes. We also learned about the core of Angular Material, the Angular CDK, and demonstrated some of its style-aware components.

Hopefully, you will have read this chapter and found that you now grasp Material Design in general and Angular Material in particular, and can determine whether it is a good match for your next Angular application.

Web applications must be testable to ensure they are functional and in accordance with the application requirements. In the next chapter, we will learn how to apply different testing techniques in the context of Angular web applications.
