Getting Started With Angular CLI Commands

Brett Smith AngularJS, JavaScript, Programming, Single-Page Application Leave a Comment

A tool that helps the journey of learning Angular is the Angular CLI. The CLI is a useful tool that can help set up and add different elements to your projects. It follows some of the best practices that have been laid down by the Angular team, even handling some of the plumbing for you so that things will work well together.

This post shows some of the basic commands available within the CLI. We will look at some of the basic commands that can help get a project started and built, paying particular attention to the different commands and what they produce, as far as application structure and file layout is concerned…



Learning Angular C.R.U.D.

Chris Berry AngularJS, JavaScript, Technology Snapshot, Tutorial 1 Comment

So, you’ve learned JavaScript and now you’re wanting to get into Angular. But where do you start?

There are quite a few examples out there. One of the best ideas I have personally found useful for a new developer to learn is how to do Create, Read, Update and Delete operations.

In this blog we’ll go through the process of building a simple, working Angular address book application with C.R.U.D. operations. By the end, and by studying the full, working code, you should have a better grasp on Angular.



Taking A Mixed Approach To Single-Page Applications

A coworker came to me with a problem. The client he was working with would be building hundreds of single-page applications and all would need to be tied into a single shell application. He had first attempted to use an iFrame contained within another single-page application to display the child applications.

While this worked, he came up against another requirement: the child applications may or may not need access to data from the parent shell application.

It was at this point he came to me for suggestions. I had been playing with this exact idea for sometime; how can you manage a collection of Single-Page Applications and still share data between them?

At this point, I decided to create a hybrid solution of mixing Single-Page Applications with a server-rendered shell application. The following is the process I took for creating this solution, highlighting some of the pain points with some suggestions for further enhancements.



Getting Started With JHipster, Part 3

Matt McCandless AngularJS, Java, JavaScript, Spring, Tutorial 1 Comment

Welcome back to this JHipster tutorial series! In part one we covered creating a monolithic application. In part two, we walked through creating a microservice application (which was a bit more complicated).

For those of you out there working to get things going with JHipster, there are some setup things and “gotchas” that I’d like to highlight. So this little blog is more of a helper for those of you who have decided to try JHipster out and play around with it. That’s what we’ll be discussing in this blog post with the hope that I can help you minimize the getting-up-to-speed curve…
