Building an Angular 5 Application Step-By-Step

See the original posting on DZone Python

In this article, we will be building an Angular 5 application from scratch with step-by-step configuration and explanation. This single page application will be created using an Angular CLI command with different Angular modules integrated into it, such as RouterModuleHttpClientModuleAppRoutingModule, and FormsModule. The application will have a sample login page styled with Bootstrap and a user dashboard page. Once the user is authenticated successfully, they will be redirected to the dashboard page where they can see a list of users.

What’s New in Angular 5

Angular 5 applications are faster, lighter, and easy to use. They have material design capabilities to build beautiful and intuitive UIs. A new HttpClientModulewas introduced which is a complete rewrite of the existing HttpModule. It now supports TypeScript 2.4.
