Spring Boot and Angular

Overview of this book

Angular makes building applications with the web easy and Spring Boot helps get an application up and running using just a few lines of code and minimal configuration. This book provides insights into building full-stack apps using Angular and Spring Boot effectively to reduce overall development time and increase efficiency. You'll start by setting up your CI/CD pipeline and then build your web application’s backend guided by best practices. You'll then see how Spring Boot allows you to build applications faster and more efficiently by letting the Spring Framework and Spring Boot extension do the heavy lifting. The book demonstrates how to use Spring Data JPA and add its dependencies along with Postgres dependencies in the project to save or persist a user's data in a database for future use. As you advance, you'll see how to write tests and test a service using Mockito. Finally, you'll create a CI workflow or pipeline for a Spring Boot and Angular application to enable operations to deliver quality applications faster. By the end of this Spring Boot and Angular book, you'll be able to build a full-stack web application and deploy it through continuous integration and continuous deployment.

Adding Authentication in Angular

In the previous chapter, we completed the CRUD features of our Angular application using the building blocks of NgRx. We also learned the step-by-step process of writing the actions, reducers, and effects in our application that will be used to modify the value of states. We also learned the difference between using and not using effects in the application. Effects are essential for us to communicate with the external APIs that allow the database changes to be synced in the NgRx store.

In this chapter, we will learn how to add authentication in our Angular application; we will implement a login page that will provide a valid JWT, protect routes, and apply API authentication with the use of NgRx.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • Adding user authentication
  • Protecting routes
  • Calling an API
