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.

Leveraging Angular built-in modules

We have already learned that the Angular framework contains a rich collection of first-party libraries that can help us during the development of an Angular application. The functionality of each library is exposed through an Angular module. We need to import these modules into our applications to start using their functionality as with any other module in Angular. Below are some of the most widely used modules of the Angular framework:

  • BrowserModule: It is used to run Angular applications into the browser and must be imported only once in an Angular application.
  • CommonModule: It contains specific Angular artifacts that support the Angular template syntax and enrich our HTML templates. We will work most of the time with this module in this book.
  • FormsModule/ReactiveFormsModule: It allows us to build HTML forms for interacting with user input data. We will learn more about Angular Forms in Chapter 10, Collecting User Data with Forms.
  • HttpClientModule...
