Introduction to Angular and how it starts up

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Angular, Learning, Technology

This article on introduction to angular is part of the Learning Angular series. Angular replaces AngularJS which had taken the internet by storm, when it was released almost a decade back in 2009. While AngularJS was quite a robust library, there were also quite some nuances which was making it difficult to manage. So the developers went for a whole rewrite of the library and built a framework instead which came to be known as Angular 2, or better Angular. Over the years, the team has been releasing newer versions every 6 months, v8 being the most recent. We won’t  … [Read More]

Managing page title in Angular is quite straightforward by using the Title service provided by Angular. It’s as simple as calling the setTitle function with the new title. Following is an code excerpt from Angular docs public constructor(private titleService: Title ) { } public setTitle( newTitle: string) { this.titleService.setTitle( newTitle ); } This is fine for setting the page title from a single page, but it can be redundant to add this to every component from where you want to change the title.

href = “#” or href = “javascript:” in Angular

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Technology

A lot of times it’s quite difficult to decide between what to use for href attribute while developing Angular 2+ applications. Following are 3 ways to do that: 1. href = “#” This is considered the safest way to create a link without allowing the user to redirect anywhere on the link click. But this method only works for HTML pages.

Defining an array var arr = [1, 2];var arr1 = new Array(1,2); var arr2 = new Array(length); // This will create an array of the given length, but won’t initialize the values.

Looping through Array arr.forEach((item, index, array) => {     // item => the current item     // index => index of the current item     // array => the actual array passed }); Retrieving an item from array arr[2]; // This will return 3rd element in the arrayarr[2] = arr[02] = arr[‘2′] != arr[’02’]arr.indexOf(2); // Returns the index of the item, or -1  … [Read More]
