Angular Course Details

The Course

Angular is a front-end web development framework developed by Google. It is based on TypeScript, which is a superset of JavaScript. Angular is an open-source framework and has a large community of developers contributing towards it. It is one of the most popular web development frameworks mainly used for developing single-page applications.

Angular is a structural framework used for building dynamic web applications. It goes beyond being a library to being a framework because Angular contains the control flow and is like a skeleton where application defines the features. In short, Angular calls the code and not the way around.

Angular 8, which is the latest version, was released on May 28th, 2019.

Angular 8 has come up with many new features, some of those are –

  • Bazel Support
  • Builders API
  • Differential Loading
  • Ivy Rendering Engine
  • Opt-In-Usage
  • Web Workers

Angular is the first-ever version of Angular released in 2016. It is a refined version of AngularJS. It is based on TypeScript. TypeScript is a superset of ES6. It is a complete re-write of Angular 1 or AngularJS. It supports TypeScript 1.8 and ES6.


Angular 8 is the latest released version and it has support for TypeScript 3.2. It is much smaller in size making it faster and easier to use. It has a whole lot of new features making it a robust and adaptable framework available for developing Single Page Applications (SPAs).

To learn Angular 8, one should have these prerequisites –

  • Experience with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript
  • Good understanding of MVC or Model-View-Controller concepts
  • Good understanding Model-View-Controller (MVC)
  • Working Knowledge of DOM or Document Object Model

Angular is based on TypeScript, which is at its core – JavaScript. So, it becomes essential to have at least a basic understanding of JavaScript for you to learn Angular. A good grasp on JavaScript along with an idea on HTML and CSS will be very useful to learn Angular.  The only way to really get to know how Angular works is by having a good understanding of JavaScript.

TypeScript is a superset of ES6 JavaScript which in turn is a superset of ES5 JavaScript. The conversion of TypeScript to JavaScript is seen as a shredding of features.


When translating TypeScript to JavaScript using decorators, one should remove class property modifiers such as private and public. Then one can remove type declarations such as string and boolean. It is important to keep the constructor parameter types that are used for dependency injection.


To move from ES6 with decorators to plain ES6, one has to remove all decorator types. Then, from plain ES6 to ES5, one needs to remove the main feature such as import statements and class declarations.

Both Angular and React are widely used and are popular front-end web development solutions.

While ReactJS is more a library, Angular is a framework. 

Each has its advantages –

  • While React is a very flexible solution, Angular is a structured framework giving much more functionality and you do not need to decide on what routing libraries, you can just start coding. 
  • React uses a one-directional data flow updating the virtual DOM while Angular uses a two-directional flow process and updates the real DOM.
  • React can be combined with other libraries while Angular is a complete solution in itself.
  • React is easier to learn than Angular making it the more popular among the developer community.
  • Angular, however, has a larger and strong community backing it up and the future does look good.
  • Angular is easier to set up but takes a longer time to deliver projects whereas React takes a longer time to set up and a shorter time to deliver projects.

A directive in Angular is used to manipulate the Document Object Model or DOM. A directive is a function that executes whenever the Angular compiler finds in the DOM. Directives are used to change the appearance, layout, and behavior of a DOM element. It also helps to extend the HTML.

Unit testing in Angular is a technique that tests a piece of code in isolation. Unit tests play an important role as they help to catch bugs early and ensure the quality of code. Unit tests provide documentation for the code.

Angular CLI stands for – Angular Command Line Interface. Angular CLI is a command-line tool for creating Angular apps. Angular CLI provides boilerplates that ensure you do not spend time on installing and configuring dependencies. Angular CLI saves time and bring in efficiency during application development.

Angular routing is the official Angular routing library written and maintained by the Angular Team. Angular router first activates all required Angular components to set up a page when a user navigates to a particular URL. The router then lets users navigate from page to another without a page load. It also updates the browser’s history to allow users to use the forward and back buttons as they navigate.

After coding the Angular app using TypeScript, you can use Angular CLI is first to build the app.


After the Angular build is completed, all the application’s modules, services, and components are transferred to the JavaScript.js file. This is then used to run angular applications in the browser.

The following are the steps –


Step#1 Install the Express session module through npm – allows you to send cookies to clients

Step#2 Initialize by typing app.use (session)}

Step#3 Then use the secret key – to unauthenticate for users not been permitted

Step#4 Then type req.session.user to set the user email and password

Step#5 Then type app. (data’, (req, ses)

Additionally, you will have to use {withCredentials: true}  on your requests which would allow you to send cookies.


Angular manages sessions in three ways –

  • Cookies
  • Session Storage
  • Local Storage

Code editor is the basic requirement for programming. It helps boost a developer’s efficiency and may also bring it down. There are quite a good number of code editors out there but Visual Studio Code editor is the more preferred one. VSC editor is a free and open source editor developed by Microsoft. It has strong support for Angular and TypeScript. 


Some other good code editors are -

  • Sublime Text
  • Atom Editor
  • Webstrom
  • Angular IDE

You can start with the latest version of Angular, Angular 9. However, you must have knowledge about the previous versions. Note that angular 1.x or Angular JS and Angular 2 (and higher) are completely different. After angular 2, every version has the same foundation with newer features.

The latest version of Angular is version 9, which has numerous features and updates for developers and companies. There is no new module or router. Instead, it focuses more on the effectiveness and compilation. Here are some major updates in Angular 9 update:

  • Ivy engine is the new generation compilation pipeline responsible for rendering, running phase, and framework context. It also means that the bundles will now be 40% smaller.
  • With the new update, the metadata is stored directly in the components by the Ivy. This way, it is easier to obtain them separately.
  • Before Angular 9, i18N had a major time-consumption problem. The update has introduced @angular/localize that creates a single build, then creates a copy, and finally inserts translation text. Also, @angular/localize adds metadata to every copy to format dates and numbers.

Here are the benefits of getting trained on Angular:

  1. Two-way data binding - AngularJS has a Model-View-Controller architecture and the framework synchronizes the model and the view. When there is a change in the Model data, the view changes too. Through two-way data binding, developers can reduce development time as they don’t have to write additional code for model synchronization and continual view.
  2. Directives - With this feature, developers can assign special behaviors to the DOM or Document Object Model. Through this, engineers are able to create rich and dynamic content with HTML.
  3. Dependency injection - Dependencies are used to define how different pieces of code will interact with each other and how changing one component will impact the others. With AngularJS, injectors that define dependencies can be used as external elements that decouple components from their dependencies. It makes components easier to manage, test, and reuse.
  4. Community - Angular has been extremely popular among the developers from the start. This strong community is the reason behind the training materials, third-party tools, and discussions on using AngularJS.

You can use Angular for the following:

  • Creating menus - This includes menus that have attractive animation effects and respond to user input.
  • Creating a SPA - SPA or Single-page website offers a much more fluid experience. The reason for this is that all the code is dynamically loaded or retrieved up-front for creating an experience of a desktop application instead of a traditional website.
  • Other practical examples - Angular is a popular framework used for building enterprise web apps, progressive web apps, and apps with dynamic content.

Angular is not a programming language. It is a front-end JavaScript framework that is designed for abstracting common tasks and elements of a web application. The programming language used to write Angular apps is TypeScript.

Here are four reasons why Angular is so popular: 

  1. You can structure the code by following Model-View-Controller. 
  2. The two-way data binding reduces the amount of boilerplate code that must be written for keeping the model and view in agreement. 
  3. Web developers and designers can work parallelly. 
  4. AngularJS data models are POJO or Plain Old Java Objects that are simple to append or change properties without any complications. 

Yes, Angular is a popular open-source JavaScript framework used for web app development. When it comes to creating complex apps, Angular is preferred over other frameworks like Reactjs. This is because Angular is a complete front-end framework while React is not.

Yes, it is. In the beginning, you might feel that it is hard because of the syntax. When you look at it for the first time, the syntax will look complex. But, if you have your JavaScript concepts clear, you will be able to learn Angular easily. If you are having trouble understanding the framework, you can enrol in a training institute like KnowledgeHut.

Here are a few Angular concepts you must be familiar with: 

  • Modular Angular Architecture 
  • Immutability and One-way dataflow 
  • Structural and Attribute Directives 
  • Component Lifecycle Hooks 
  • Http and Observable Services 
  • Smart/Dumb Component Architecture 
  • Application Structure and Best Practices 
  • Template Binding Syntax 
  • Routing and Feature Modules 
  • Forms and Validations 
  • Content Projection 
  • onPush Change Detection 
  • Pre-loads, Route Guards, Lazy-loading 
  • Custom Pipes 
  • @ContentChild and @viewChild Decorators 

To get started, you need to first set up Angular on the local machine. You will also need to install NodeJS and ensure that the development environment has an npm (Node Package Manager) package manager and Node.js. After this, you can follow the below-mentioned steps:

  • Installing Angular CLI - Angular CLI is used for creating angular projects, generating library and application code, and performing different ongoing development tasks like testing, bundling, and deploying. You can install Angular CLI either locally or globally.
  • Creating a workspace and an initial application - Apps are developed in the Angular workspace that contains files for projects. A project is simply a set of files comprising an app, library, and end-to-end tests. Once you have installed the necessary packages and dependencies for creating a new workspace, it will create the following:
    • A new workspace that has a root folder. 
    • An initial skeleton app project 
    • An end-to-end test project 
    • Related configuration files
  • Serving the application - Angular has a server that allows you to build and serve your application locally easily by going to the workspace folder.

Angular JS is a front-end and open-source JavaScript framework that augments browser-based applications with the MVC or Model-View-Controller capability. It also reduces the JavaScript you need for making functional web applications. These forms of apps are called Single-Page applications.

Here are the popular apps and websites that are built with Angular: 

  • The Guardian 
  • PayPal
  • JetBlue 
  • Lego 
  • iStock Photo 
  • Upwork 
  • Netflix 
  • Freelancer 
  • Weather.com
  • YouTube for PS3 

Angular Uses

AngularJS is primarily used for creating Single Page Applications (SPAs). A single page application adds more beauty and fluidity to a website and AngularJS is widely used to create that. Angular is also used to create navigation menus which are an integral part of any website.

There are a good number of benefits to learning Angular, some of these are –

  • Easy and efficient way of creating SPAs 
  • Developers can easily work on and integrate into other applications such as Wijmo, Ionic, Kendo UI
  • Angular gives Modularity, which helps developers combine various “modules” with one another to create an entire application
  • Angular 8 is very beneficial as it helps developers develop applications on different platforms such as – Web, Desktop and Mobile

Angular Installation

Step to install Angular 8

Step#1 Install NodeJS and npm

Step#2 Use npm to install Angular CLI

Step#3 Create New Angular Application
