An Overview: Angular 2 and Type Script
As per Brad Green; Google’s Engineering Director; near about 1.3 million web developers use Angular JS and among these 300 thousand have started using the latest version Angular JS 2 which will be released soon.
Here, in this blog post; we will offer detailed overview of Angular 2 JS framework:
Angular JS 2 – Overview:
In the end of 2014, Google announced that Angular 2 would be a perfect sequel of Angular JS and they also created new language known as “AtScript” which was meant for writing Angular 2 applications.
Later Microsoft decided to support the annotations to their Type Script language and hence it emerged as the development language required for developing Angular JS framework.
This is not any MVC framework but instead this is a component based framework. In Angular 2, any application is a bunch of loosely combined components.
This screenshot is of a landing page of any sample online auction application which was initially known as the combination of NavBar, Search, Carousel, Product as well as Footer Components.
Here, there are three footer components where the automatic rendering is done by binding the template to the huge array of components that are available from the server. Each product title is a link to any connected product detail page.
Since, we can design auction as a single page Application, the entire page is not to be refreshed to showcase product details. The area occupied by carousel and products can be reused to include product details as well.
This task can be done in some of these easy steps:
- Using Angular’s router outlet directive that allows you to declare the area that is currently occupied by carousel and products. This can vary the content depending on user’s navigation.
- Carousel and Product can be included inside the home component.
- Now, create a new Product detail component.
- Configure Angular’s Router to show either the home or product detail component in the decided area.
Use of Type Script:
TypeScript serves to be a useful static code analyzer and as you enter code in your Type Script, you are guided with context sensitive help along with available methods in the object or types of function argument.
The type definition files for JQuery can contain declarations of all jQuery APIs and hence your IDE can help you with different types of use.
We are sure that this blog post has succeeded in offering perfect knowledge about Angular 2. There’s much more to talk about however at present this is enough.
We will discuss more about it in upcoming blog posts. Till then, stay tuned to Softqube Technologies, well known web development company India.
