AC’s Blog: HowTo: Angular Elements in SharePoint Framework Projects – Two Projects

Using a single SharePoint Framework project to create a custom element using Angular Elements is not a good option. The way I'd recommend you do it by using two projects:

Use the Angular CLI to create a custom element using Angular CLI

Create an SPFx project that imports the resulting bundle from the Angular CLI project

The advantage of this approach is it negates the two downsides to the single-project approach. Assuming the following:

My Angular CLI project is named ngElementsHelloWorld

My SPFx project is named ngElementsHelloWorldSPFx

The two projects are living side by side

I added the following NPM script to my Angular CLI project's package.json file:

"spfx-build": "ng build ngElementsHelloWorld –prod –output-hashing=none cat when I run npm run spfx-build, the Angular CLI will build the project with AOT. Continue reading


Testing Services with Http in Angular

In this article we’re going to take a look at how to unit test a service that performs http calls, since there’s a little bit more knowledge required to make this work. To use this service in our application, we first need to create a provider for it on our application module, later we will use it in our tests:

Since the API returns an Observable, we need to subscribe to it to actually perform the http request. Before we can start writing test specs for our service APIs, we need to configure a testing module. Continue reading


Google announces Grab and Go program for Chromebooks, powered by Angular

Google announces Grab and Go program for Chromebooks, powered by Angular
Last week at Google Cloud Next, the Grab and Go team showed off their newly announced Grab and Go program: a self service program for enterprises to automate managing Chromebook assets. The application is made up of three main pieces:
Angular Chrome App 
A Chrome App is installed on all the Chromebooks. Angular Web Application
A web app lets Grab and Go administrators monitor and manage the fleet of Chromebooks. Continue reading


Apps That Work Natively on the Web and Mobile – Angular Blog

To realise the Code-Sharing Dream the Angular and NativeScript teams teamed up to create nativescript-schematics, a schematic that enables you to build both web and mobile apps from a single project. This usually means that we can share the code for:
the Routes for the navigation
the Services for the common business logic
the Component Class definition for the common behaviour of each component

While, separating the code for:
the UI Layer (stylesheets and html) — as you need to use different user interface components in web and NativeScript-built native apps
the NgModules — so that we can import platform-specific modules, without creating conflicts (i.e. Angular Material Design — which is web only) between web and mobile

Here’s a diagram to show you what that looks like at a high level. Just like this:
ng new –name=my-app –sharedNote, you may need to install @nativescript/schematics first:
npm install –global @nativescript/schematicsOr we could extend an existing web projects with the capability to build mobile apps with NativeScript, by calling:
ng add @nativescript/schematicsThis command adds the NativeScript-specific:
npm modules
AppModule definition
AppComponent definition
tsconfig

Build Process
To complete the story, we need a build process that is capable of using the shared files and the platform-specific ones, and provide a web or mobile app as a result. Continue reading


Angular.js ng-src Example

The fore-mentioned “buggy” way to implement is, seems like:

But the correct way to write it, is by using the directive:

For our convenience, we ‘ll make use of an existing example concept, the one where I demonstrated the Angular.js JSON Fetching. My previously linked example, according to JSON fetching, describes in depth how to load and “consume” a json file, into an Angular.js application, so I’ll quickly get into this. To do so, we ‘ll reuse the following code snippet from the existing example (JSON fetching), assuming that:

Keeping a similar concept as in the Angular.js JSON Fetching Example let’s see how to display the country’s flag, using the directive:

Lines 1, 7-14 and 16, fulfill the assumptions made in JSON fetching section. Continue reading


Understanding Asynchronous Invocation With Promise Using AngularJS

The call made to asynchronous function will instantly return you the promise object that will act more like a proxy to the actual data which will be available at a later time. When you make an AJAX call to the remote server, it instantly returns a promise object and not give you the actual response from the server. You make use of callback functions associated with the promise object to determine whether the server responded with success or error data. Continue reading


Why we moved from Angular 2 to Vue.js (and why we didn’t choose React)

So consider that we had 17 versions to upgrade on a non-tested system, a lot of pressure from the business to write new features, lots of bugs and poorly written code, the original developers weren’t on the team anymore, only one developer (me) at the time with many other responsibilities, Typescript, problems with finding the right documentation since I was using a beta, and Angular 2 moving to version 4. We knew the framework of our dreams would need to have the following:
It should be stable
Backed by a strong community or some big players
Good documentation or lots of questions on StackOverflow
Easy to learn
Integration with Bootstrap
Small size
Ideally it would allow us to reuse code
Coding speed test should be increased
Reactivity
Component based

After having our decision points decided, I had to get my hands dirty, so I gave both React and Vue.js a couple of days each to review each decision point that wasn’t going to be answered by Google. I got a good understanding of the basic concepts of Vue.js, defined a good and extendable architecture but most importantly I really enjoyed the experience of writing code with it and I felt I was doing it faster than with React.

Angular 6 Release vs. Angular 5: New Features and Improvements – DZone Web Dev

The highlights of Angular 6 include the Angular Command Line Interface (CLI), The Component Development KIT (CDK) and the Angular Material package update. A new Tree component is now added in the Angular Material Design Package and the Component Dev Kit. Using the Elements Package, you can create Angular components and publish them as Web Components, which can then be used in any HTML page. Continue reading


Anyway, stop recommending bazookas to kill flies in programming

In the Vue community, whether on Facebook, forums or Discord, anytime someone have an issue with state handling or SEO, people repeat the same answer without asking what kind of project the OP (original poster) has. – OP: I have an issue with SEO in my current Vue project […] how can I do? If the guy already has a project not using nuxt, try to resolve his issue in his context first instead of telling him straight away to use nuxt. Continue reading


Learning Angular: Set your language culture before any UI is displayed

In my application I set the user’s language based on his personal preferences. So besides some details about how I use angular-translate’s partial loading capabilities to get all the different localization files, I use to set the language based on the user’s preferences. But there’s an issue: I have to make sure the language is set before the UI is being rendered to make sure the data is displayed in the correct locale. Continue reading
