Get to know these Preloading Strategies to reduce Angular App loading time
User experience is one of the most critical factors for successful web applications today. And if we can optimize app loading time, it will undoubtedly establish a positive first impression.
Who doesn’t love swift and smooth web apps, after all?
In this article, I will show you how to improve app loading time by following a set of preloading strategies. Let’s start with an introduction.
Preloading means loading data before some event, either synchronously or asynchronously.
Angular documentation describes two types of preloading mechanisms.
The main focus of this article is preloading modules. Since you now have an idea about what preloading means, let’s look at the benefits of it.
Before diving into the benefits of preloading modules, let’s take a look at what lazy loading does, given that it’s essential for preloading.
If all the angular modules are loaded at once when a user visits the app, it increases the load time. Lazy loading resolves this issue by loading modules on demand. It reduces the initial bundle size, hence improving app load time.
Preloading is a mechanism to further optimize loading time by loading modules in the background.
Now let’s see preloading in action.
Angular route guard allows us to grant or remove access to certain parts of the navigation. Angular canActivate guard prevent unauthorized access. Let’s perform a practical and see how we can set up a guard for our angular application.
Install Angular in easy step by step process. Firstly Install Node.js & npm, then Install Angular CLI, Create workspace and Deploy your App.
To access route parameters and query parameters in Angular, use ActivatedRoute service. The ActivatedRoute service provides Observables through which we can subscribe to the values of route params and route query params.
What is Angular? What it does? How we implement it in a project? So, here are some basics of angular to let you learn more about angular. Angular is a Typesc
