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.

A web application should typically run on the web and be accessible by anyone and from anywhere. It needs two essential ingredients: a web server hosting the application and a production build to deploy it to that server. In this chapter, we will focus on the second part of the recipe. But what do we mean by production build?

In a nutshell, a production build of a web application is an optimized version of the application code that is smaller, faster, and more performant. Primarily, it is a process that takes all the code files of the application, applies optimization techniques, and converts them to a single bundle file.

In the previous chapters, we have gone through many parts involved in building an Angular application. We need just one last piece to connect the dots and make our application available for anyone to use, which is to build it and deploy it to a web server.

In this chapter, we will learn the following...
