Components and Modules
In Angular, components are grouped together into modules. A module is essentially a container for components and other code, and it helps keep your application organized and maintainable. The Angular CLI is a helpful tool for creating and managing components and modules in your Angular projects.
Data Binding and Directives
One of the key features of Angular is its powerful data binding capabilities. Data binding allows you to easily connect the data in your application to your HTML templates, making it simple to update the user interface when your data changes.
Angular provides several types of data binding, including:
- Interpolation: Displaying a variable's value in the HTML template.
- Property binding: Setting an HTML element's property to a variable's value.
- Event binding: Responding to user actions, such as clicks and keypresses.
Along with data binding, Angular makes use of directives to add dynamic behavior to your HTML templates. Directives are special attributes that you can add to your HTML elements to modify their appearance or behavior. Some common directives include
*ngIf for conditional rendering and
*ngFor for looping through lists.
Services and Dependency Injection
In addition to components, Angular applications often make use of services to handle tasks such as fetching data from an API or managing application state. Services are reusable pieces of code that can be shared across multiple components.
Angular uses a powerful feature called dependency injection to make it easy to provide services to your components. Dependency injection is a design pattern where a component declares its dependencies, and the Angular framework takes care of providing the necessary instances. This makes your code more modular, testable, and easier to maintain.
Getting Started with Angular
To start developing Angular applications, you'll need to have Node.js and the Angular CLI installed on your system. Once you have the necessary tools, you can create a new Angular project using the
ng new command and start building your first Angular components and services.
What is Angular?
What are components and modules in Angular?
Components are self-contained pieces of code that encapsulate both logic and presentation in an Angular application. Modules are containers for components and other code, helping to organize and maintain the application.
