Minify, bundle, and deploy an app in production.
But while TypeScript transpiles our code,…it doesn't really minify it or bundle it.…Therefore, from the moment on when you plan to deploy…your application in production,…minification and bundling is extremely important.…Currently, there's a lot of tooling available…and we definitely cannot cover all of them…because then we'd probably fill up…an entire course on its own.…So what we are gonna do now, is to take a look…at some of the most popular starter projects for Angular2.…
Get up to speed with one of the most important building blocks of Angular 2: component-based directives, aka components. Components are reusable HTML widgets that replace the controller-based architecture in Angular. This course guides you through the various steps in migrating to Angular 2 and building real-world Angular components of your own.
Author Juri Strumpflohner starts by setting up a modern development environment with TypeScript and ES2015 support. Next, he explains what components are, how to build them, and how they differ from directives. He provides an opportunity to apply these new concepts while building a fictitious dashboard application for a home automation system.
Next, learn about HTML rendering templates, see how to establish a data flow between different components, and even find out how to integrate external libraries. Juri also shows how to make components production-ready and maintainable by applying automated unit and end-to-end testing techniques. As a bonus, discover how to bring your Angular 2 components to other environments such as the server side and mobile devices.
