The second version release of AngularJS has carried along with it some cool features that provide a boost to the process of web development. The change detection algorithm, a smooth server side rendering and the introduction of directives and controllers has made this framework a winner when it comes to offering scalable solutions for a business.
One fascinating aspect about AngularJS2 is that when it is clubbed with Typescript, it provides myriad benefits to the users. These two when clubbed with Netbeans IDE leads to a creation of something more amazing. Let us throw some light as to how these three can create magic when joined together.
Combining TypeScript and NetBeans
Operating AngularJS2 in NetBeans
The first thing you need to do is select the ‘New Project’ tab and select either ‘JS application’ or ‘HTML5’. Once you are done with it, click on the ‘Next’ button, fill in your project name and state the folder location. You can even add templates to the project. In the last step, you need to create a configuration file by making a click on the ‘Next’ button. You will get the configurated file- package.json (bower.json, in case you use bower instead of NPM)
Keep in mind that npm will be utilized here to manage dependencies. After you have set up the project in NetBeans, dependencies of Angular2 will be configured automatically. You will receive a fair idea about the distinct individual components that are utilized when you take a look at the dependencies mentioned below:
Concurrently: It is used for executing multiple processes in an independent fashion.
Relect metadata: It allows you to inject the features of dependency with decorators.
Lite server: It is used during the process of development.
Zone.js: It simplifies the intricate tasks of updating views.
SystemJS: It is a kind of module loader that operates with AngularJS.
ES6-SHIM: This utilizes ES6 for browsers that are devoid of ES6 support.
These dependencies can be directly installed from NetBeans website.
Why the trio will be a great combination?
