How to Create your own Angular CLI Builder

Angular CLI v8.0.0 brought us a stable CLI Builders API, which allows you to customize, replace, or even create new CLI commands

Now the most popular builder for customizing the webpack configuration is  @angular-builders/custom-webpack. If you look at the source code of all the builders supplied with the package, you will see very compact solutions that do not exceed 30 lines of code.

Maybe make your own?

Challenge Accepted!

This material assumes that you are already familiar with the Angular and Angular CLI, you know what rxjs is and how to live with it, and you are also ready to read 50 lines of code.

So what exactly are these builders?

Builder is just a function that can be called using the Angular CLI. It is called with two parameters:

  1. JSON-like configuration object
  2. BuilderContext — an object that provides access, for example, to the logger.

A function can be either synchronous or asynchronous. As a bonus, you can return Observable. But in any case, both Promise and Observable should emit BuilderOutput.

This function, packaged in a certain way in the npm package, can be used to configure such CLI commands as buildtestlintdeploy, and any other from the architect section of the angular.json configuration file.

Install Angular - Angular Environment Setup Process

Angular is a TypeScript based framework that works in synchronization with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. To work with angular, domain knowledge of these 3 is required.

  1. Installing Node.js and npm
  2. Installing Angular CLI
  3. Creating workspace
  4. Deploying your First App

In this article, you will get to know about the Angular Environment setup process. After reading this article, you will be able to install, setup, create, and launch your own application in Angular. So let’s start!!!

Angular environment setup

Install Angular in Easy Steps

For Installing Angular on your Machine, there are 2 prerequisites:

  • Node.js
  • npm Package Manager
Node.js

First you need to have Node.js installed as Angular require current, active LTS or maintenance LTS version of Node.js

Download and Install Node.js version suitable for your machine’s operating system.

Npm Package Manager

Angular, Angular CLI and Angular applications are dependent on npm packages. By installing Node.js, you have automatically installed the npm Package manager which will be the base for installing angular in your system. To check the presence of npm client and Angular version check of npm client, run this command:

  1. npm -v

Installing Angular CLI

  • Open Terminal/Command Prompt
  • To install Angular CLI, run the below command:
  1. npm install -g @angular/cli

installing angular CLI

· After executing the command, Angular CLI will get installed within some time. You can check it using the following command

  1. ng --version

Workspace Creation

Now as your Angular CLI is installed, you need to create a workspace to work upon your application. Methods for it are:

  • Using CLI
  • Using Visual Studio Code
1. Using CLI

To create a workspace:

  • Navigate to the desired directory where you want to create your workspace using cd command in the Terminal/Command prompt
  • Then in the directory write this command on your terminal and provide the name of the app which you want to create. In my case I have mentioned DataFlair:
  1. Ng new YourAppName

create angular workspace

  • After running this command, it will prompt you to select from various options about the CSS and other functionalities.

angular CSS options

  • To leave everything to default, simply press the Enter or the Return key.

Angular CLI Builders

Builders API is released with Angular 8, and it offers a functionality where you can override commands as ng build,ng test and ng lint . Not to be confused with Angular Schematics here, by using which you can add your own commands for ng generate commands or provide support for ng add .

In this blog post, we will discuss Angular CLI Builders, in case you are following Angular, with version 8 Builders are talked about a lot. So let’s see how we can use the Builders API.

Tutorial: Nx-style monorepo workspace with Angular CLI: Part 3

In Part 3 of this tutorial, we create the passenger info and flight search feature libraries. We use the generate project tool to create the mobile booking application and its test project. Finally, we create a mobile version of the flight search component template.

This tutorial is part of the Angular Architectural Patterns series.

In Part 2 of this tutorial, we used the generate project tool to generate the booking data access and shared data access workspace libraries with NgRx Store and Effects. We extracted a shared environments library and hooked everything up to the booking feature shell library.

In this part of the tutorial, we’re going to create the passenger info and flight search feature libraries, each with a routed component. After that, we’ll create the mobile booking application project and its end-to-end test project. Finally, we’ll use builder file replacement to create a mobile version of the flight search component template.

THIS AD MAKES CONTENT FREE. HIDE

Passenger info feature library#

Let’s create our first feature library, the passenger info feature which is part of the booking domain.

npm run generate-project -- library feature feature-passenger-info --scope=booking --npm-scope=nrwl-airlines
# or
yarn generate-project library feature feature-passenger-info --scope=booking --npm-scope=nrwl-airlines
<>

Generate passenger info feature library.

After generating the project using the previous commands and parameters, we get this file and folder structure.

libs/booking/feature-passenger-info
├── src
│   ├── lib
│   │   ├── passenger-info
│   │   │   ├── passenger-info.component.css
│   │   │   ├── passenger-info.component.html
│   │   │   ├── passenger-info.component.spec.ts
│   │   │   └── passenger-info.component.ts
│   │   ├── booking-feature-passenger-info.module.spec.ts
│   │   └── booking-feature-passenger-info.module.ts
│   ├── index.ts
│   └── test.ts
├── README.md
├── karma.conf.js
├── tsconfig.lib.json
├── tsconfig.spec.json
└── tslint.json
<>

The file and folder structure of the booking passenger info feature library.

This looks a little different from a feature shell library and a data access library.

After the generate project tool has created the workspace library with an entry point Angular module, it runs the commands in the next listing.

The generate project tool also removed the --no-common-module flag from the ng generate module command we saw earlier, since this Angular module will be declaring components.

ng generate component passenger-info --project=booking-feature-passenger-info --module=booking-feature-passenger-info.module.ts --display-block
<>

Generate component command run when generating a feature library.

Let’s look at the Angular module our tool has generated.

// booking-feature-passenger-info.module.ts
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import {
  PassengerInfoComponent,
} from './passenger-info/passenger-info.component';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [PassengerInfoComponent],
  imports: [
    CommonModule,
  ],
})
export class BookingFeaturePassengerInfoModule {}
<>

Initial entry point Angular module in the passenger info feature library.

The entry point Angular module shown in the previous listing is a good starting point. We need to set up the feature routing for our component though. This is done in the next listing.

// booking-feature-passenger-info.module.ts
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { RouterModule, Routes } from '@angular/router';

import {
  PassengerInfoComponent,
} from './passenger-info/passenger-info.component';

const routes: Routes = [
  {
    path: '',
    pathMatch: 'full',
    component: PassengerInfoComponent,
  },
];

@NgModule({
  declarations: [PassengerInfoComponent],
  imports: [
    RouterModule.forChild(routes),
    CommonModule,
  ],
})
export class BookingFeaturePassengerInfoModule {}
<>

Passenger info feature Angular module with route configuration for its entry point component.

Nice! Now we’ve prepared our feature library to be hooked up to the feature shell library’s routing configuration.

The generated component is what you’d expect. What it’d display in a real booking application is not really important for the purpose of this article.

Let’s hook up this feature to the booking application’s routing by adding a route configuration to the booking feature shell Angular module as seen here.

Tutorial: Nx-style monorepo workspace with Angular CLI: Part 5

In the final part of this tutorial, we create the seatmap data access, seat listing feature, shared buttons UI, and shared formatting utilities library. Finally, we compare our approach with the full Nx toolchain.

This tutorial is part of the Angular Architectural Patterns series.

In Part 4 of this tutorial, we used our generate project tool to create the check-in data access library, the check-in feature shell library, the check-in desktop application, and the mobile check-in application. We hooked everything up and reviewed how much was automated by our tool.

In this part of the tutorial, we’re going to create the seatmap data access library with NgRx feature state. We then created the seat listing feature library and hooked it up to all applications with routing. Finally, we created the shared buttons UI library and the shared formatting utilities library which we used in the seat listing component.

THIS AD MAKES CONTENT FREE. HIDE

Seatmap data access library#

The shared seatmap feature has its own data access library. This is where we would add data services and application state management specific to the seatmap domain.

npm run generate-project -- library data-access --scope=seatmap --grouping-folder=shared/seatmap --npm-scope=nrwl-airlines --with-state
# or
yarn generate-project library data-access --scope=seatmap --grouping-folder=shared/seatmap --npm-scope=nrwl-airlines --with-state
<>

Generate the seatmap data access library.

For now, we’ll put the feature store and effects in place by using the --with-stateparameter of the generate project tool. Note that we use the nested grouping folder shared/seatmap.

// seatmap-data-access.module.ts
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { EffectsModule } from '@ngrx/effects';
import { StoreModule } from '@ngrx/store';

import { SeatmapEffects } from './+state/seatmap.effects';
import * as fromSeatmap from './+state/seatmap.reducer';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    StoreModule.forFeature(fromSeatmap.seatmapFeatureKey, fromSeatmap.reducer),
    EffectsModule.forFeature([SeatmapEffects]),
  ],
})
export class SeatmapDataAccessModule {}
<>

The seatmap data access module.

The seatmap data access Angular module gives us an overview of what’s configured in the seatmap data access library. This is a good starting point.

ng run seatmap-data-access:lint

ng run seatmap-data-access:test --watch=false
<>

Lint and test the seatmap data access library.

Everything looks ready to go!

Seat listing feature library#

It’s time to add the first feature of the seatmap domain which is used in both the check-in and booking applications.

npm run generate-project -- library feature feature-seat-listing --scope=seatmap --grouping-folder=shared/seatmap --npm-scope=nrwl-airlines
# or
yarn generate-project library feature feature-seat-listing --scope=seatmap --grouping-folder=shared/seatmap --npm-scope=nrwl-airlines
<>

Generate the seatmap seat listing feature library.

Our tool generates an Angular module and a component for us.

To add this feature to our applications, we add a route to each feature shell module.

// check-in-feature-shell.module.ts
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { RouterModule, Routes } from '@angular/router';
import { CheckInDataAccessModule } from '@nrwl-airlines/check-in/data-access';
import { SharedDataAccessModule } from '@nrwl-airlines/shared/data-access';

import { ShellComponent } from './shell/shell.component';

const routes: Routes = [
  {
    path: '',
    component: ShellComponent,
    children: [
      {
        path: '',
        pathMatch: 'full',
        redirectTo: 'seatmap', // 👈
      },
      {
        path: 'seatmap', // 👈
        loadChildren: () =>
          import('@nrwl-airlines/seatmap/feature-seat-listing')
            .then(esModule => esModule.SeatmapFeatureSeatListingModule),
      },
    ],
  },
];

@NgModule({
  declarations: [ShellComponent],
  exports: [RouterModule],
  imports: [
    RouterModule.forRoot(routes),
    SharedDataAccessModule,
    CheckInDataAccessModule,
    CommonModule,
  ],
})
export class CheckInFeatureShellModule {}
