  • Angular and Horizon for realtime application

    I’ve always been fascinated by realtime data but at the same time scared about the quantity of code that you need to write to achieve that result:

    Front-end
    Back-end
    Socket
    Database

    One of the best solutions to have realtime applications is  Firebase, it does really a lot and for hobbyists it is free as well. However every time that I had […]

  • Angular-cli with the super powers

    Angular-cli has simplified the life of a lot of developers reducing the startup time of a project and giving the ability to focus only on the code without wasting time in configurations.

    However, a lot of angular developers (me included) were not able to use angular-cli because was not possible to change the configuration, adding new plugins or in general […]

  • Dockerize your Angular application

    @Update: this post has been added to angular-seed wiki
    Docker is a platform for developing, shipping and running applications using container virtualization technology.
    In the past to deploy your application you needed to buy a physical server and that one has a lot of problems like: huge costs, waste resources, difficult to scale, hard to migrate.
    To solve […]

  • Angular animations

    Well-designed animations can make a UI not only more fun but also easier to use.

    Angular’s animation system lets you build animations that run with the same kind of native performance found in pure CSS animations. You can also tightly integrate your animation logic with the rest of your application code, for ease of control.

    Let’s do […]

  • Angular Flex Layout

    I’m a big fan of Angular Material2 and I have been using it from the alpha version. Unfortunately Material2 didn’t have any flex layout system so you needed to use an external one.
    When Material2 beta1 was released they updated the readme.md file with amazing news:

    layout
    see angular/flex-layout

    this library is still in beta1 but according to my experience it looks stable and ready […]

  • NgRx Store – Redux in AngularJs with super powers

    I’ve heard people talk about ngrx/store and Redux for the past 2 months but honestly I was always busy and I didn’t have time to experiment it.

    Finally yesterday I decided to take a look at it and well… I can say that I’m really impressed and I don’t think that I’ll write applications without it.

    For […]

  • How to create an Angular library

    In the first post we built our application in AOT mode, now it’s time to create a library that is AOT compliant.

    Most of you are thinking …”wait, is it not the same????” No it’s not, unfortunately it is not an easy job to find good resources and angular.io doesn’t help a lot for that.

    Don’t worry we’ll figure […]
