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.

Encapsulating CSS styling

We can define CSS styling within our components to better encapsulate our code and make it more reusable. In the Creating our first component section, we learned how to define CSS styles for a component using an external CSS file through the styleUrls property, or by defining CSS styles inside the TypeScript component file with the styles property.

The usual rules of CSS specificity govern both ways:

CSS management and specificity become a breeze on browsers that support Shadow DOM, thanks to scoped styling. CSS styles apply to the elements contained in the component, but they do not spread beyond their boundaries.

On top of that, Angular embeds style sheets at the head of a document so that they may affect other elements of our application. To prevent this from happening, we can set up different levels of view encapsulation.
