Discover AngularJS

Discover AngularJS

A step by step tutorial for beginners only

About the Book

The aim of this e-book is to get you quickly started with the Google powered front-end framework AngularJS.By the end of it, you should have a simple but clear picture of how various AngularJS components fit together to make a web app.Angular is truly an amazing framework, but being very opinionated, it may seem very strange and intimidating to newbies. Whether AngularJS is your first framework ever or not, this book tries to simplify things by only focusing on what matters for a beginner.

This book doesn’t pretend to be a bible of AngularJS but instead is considered a gentle introduction to Angular and its conventions.The learning process is phased over 2 big steps:

  • Step One: This part is a quick tour of the main features of AngularJS. We will be explaining them through extremely simple examples that you can run right away in Plunker.
  • Step Two: You will be making a simple mobile web application that relies on a remote API.You will also make your first directive and filter.

You can play on your mobile with the simple app we'll be making : If you are on desktop, make sure you scale down the browser viewport otherwise the app will look stretched.
