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.

Installing VS Code and IntelliJ IDEA

This section will guide you through the installation and configuration of VS Code or IntelliJ IDEA. We will look at the text editor and IDE breakdown of their features and plugins that you can use throughout the development.

VS Code

Download the VS Code installer from We suggest installing VS Code regardless of your machine’s OS, because VS Code is lightweight but offers many plugins for Angular development. In addition, VS Code is the most common text editor used by JavaScript developers. The editor supports TypeScript, code formatting, and code navigation and offers many extensions that you can use, especially in developing Angular applications. The following are some of the valuable extensions we can use throughout the development:

  • Code Spell Check: This is an extension for checking the spelling of our source code, which helps us avoid issues caused by typos.
  • Prettier: This is a...
