Create Component with Angular JS

Prerequisites

Angularj JS new version is using nodejs for setting up application and for running applicaion you will also need any code editor tool.

For current setup we are using visual code studio

Kindly down load latest version of nodejs and visual code studio on your machine and complete setup

Node Installation

1 Go to this site and download latest version of node js

https://nodejs.org/en/

2) Once installed open command prompt and type “node”

you will be able to see version on node js that means nodejs installed

Install Visual Studio

1 Go to this site and download latest version of

https://code.visualstudio.com/

2. Once installed on windows go to search menu and type visual you will be able to see its installed like below screenshot

3.Open Application and you will be able to see below screen

4) Select folder from file menu for your project

5) Open Terminal from Terminal option

Install Angular cli

Run below command

  npm install -g @angular/cli

once its installed type below command in terminal to verify installation

Create a workspace and initial application

Run below command

  ng new my-app

it will ask for angular routing =>select yes

then select css as style sheer language like below screenshot

Press Enter and it will generate your project

in below diagram 1) Creating html and components from schematics 2) DOwnloading required packages you can see under node_modules folder

Run the application

Run below command

traverse to application folder

 cd my-app  

run below command to start and open application

ng serve –open

this command will compile app and launch it with webpack on http://localhost:4200/

Congrats your first application is running and working fine

Creating Hello World

In angular data binding is happening between html and component classes .

Here we will declare one variable in component file and same will be visible on UI .

  1. Delete everything from app.component.html.

2. Declare variable in app.component.ts

app.component.ts

import { Component } from '@angular/core';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
})
export class AppComponent {
  title = 'my-app';
  message = 'Hello World';
}

3. Now add binding between UI and component with scriplet tag

app.component.html

<div>

<h1>{{message}}</h1>

</div>

4. Run below command to compile app

ng serve

5. Open browser and enter http://localhost:4200/

Your application is running and rented “Hello World” in browser. Same way you can initialize variables and pass data from component to UI.

Now we have created hello world application with single component and now we will create additional component which will be useful to add re usability.

Create Component

Use below command to create component

ng generate component helloworld

This command will create below folder structure

This command will also add new component in declaration section of app.module.ts so it can be reused by other components and get loaded at startup

app.module.ts

Edit helloworld.component.html

Below is code for helloworld.component.html

<p>helloworld works!</p>

<button>Name</button>


Edit Main page of application

we will use this component in so it will get displayed on front page using app.component.html

app.component.html

<h1>app component</h1>


<app-helloworld></app-helloworld>
<app-helloworld></app-helloworld>
<app-helloworld></app-helloworld>

As you can see we have reused same component three times so same HTML of app-helloworld component will be repeated three times.

You can also pass data and receive data from child components which we will cover in next post

Run below command to compile app

ng serve

Open App in browser

use below url to open in browser

http://localhost:4200/

Now you can see component got repeated 3 times with same html .

This is how you can create reusable components and use in your project .
