Angular 2 comes with TypeScript support, which allows us to write reusable code more easily. We will discuss how to use TypeScript in our services.
- [Narrator] Now we move onto the first video…of the section where we're going to introduce…TypeScript and use it in our Angular 1.x services.…First we're going to take a look at TypeScript…and give you the necessary resources…to get started with TypeScript.…Then we are going to convert…our existing Angular 1.x services to Typescript classes.…We already introduced TypeScript in section two,…but now we need to get to…know that language a little better,…as we are about to use it in our application.…
This means we can take our time…to introduce TypeScript concepts into our code…
Angular 2 is a technical and conceptual overhaul of its hugely popular predecessor, AngularJS. To stay ahead, developers who have built and maintained projects with AngularJS need to be able to transition them to Angular 2. Migrating to Angular 2 demonstrates how to create and execute an effective migration plan for Angular applications. It opens with an introduction to the major changes and additions brought by the new framework. Then author Alain Chautard reviews a plan to migrate a sample weather application from its original Angular 1.x codebase.
Learn how to migrate blocks of code incrementally, as opposed to porting code in bulk, and get a brief introduction to TypeScript and ECMAScript 6. Along the way, Alain shows you how to gradually deprecate $scope, upgrade services, work with the component router, transition forms, and more.
By the end of this course, you'll be up to speed with the fundamental building blocks of Angular 2 development, and fully capable (and confident) transitioning existing Angular 1.x projects to the new environment, ready to explore everything that Angular 2 has to offer.
