Angular

What it does

Marks a class as an Angular component and collects component configuration metadata.

How to use

.

@Component({selector: 'greet', template: 'Hello {{name}}!'})
class Greet {
  name: string = 'World';
}

Description

Component decorator allows you to mark a class as an Angular component and provide additional metadata that determines how the component should be processed, instantiated and used at runtime.

Components are the most basic building block of an UI in an Angular application. An Angular application is a tree of Angular components. Angular components are a subset of directives. Unlike directives, components always have a template and only one component can be instantiated per an element in a template.

A component must belong to an NgModule in order for it to be usable by another component or application. To specify that a component is a member of an NgModule, you should list it in the declarations field of that NgModule.

In addition to the metadata configuration specified via the Component decorator, components can control their runtime behavior by implementing various Life-Cycle hooks.

Metadata Properties:

  • animations - list of animations of this component
  • changeDetection - change detection strategy used by this component
  • encapsulation - style encapsulation strategy used by this component
  • entryComponents - list of components that are dynamically inserted into the view of this component
  • exportAs - name under which the component instance is exported in a template
  • host - map of class property to host element bindings for events, properties and attributes
  • inputs - list of class property names to data-bind as component inputs
  • interpolation - custom interpolation markers used in this component's template
  • moduleId - ES/CommonJS module id of the file in which this component is defined
  • outputs - list of class property names that expose output events that others can subscribe to
  • providers - list of providers available to this component and its children
  • queries - configure queries that can be injected into the component
  • selector - css selector that identifies this component in a template
  • styleUrls - list of urls to stylesheets to be applied to this component's view
  • styles - inline-defined styles to be applied to this component's view
  • template - inline-defined template for the view
  • templateUrl - url to an external file containing a template for the view
  • viewProviders - list of providers available to this component and its view children

Example

@Component({selector: 'greet', template: 'Hello {{name}}!'})
class Greet {
  name: string = 'World';
}
