  • Notes on AngularConnect 2017

    I write this from somewhere above Western Europe as I fly back to Vienna from the AngularConnect conference which just took place in London. Since a lot of the news and announcements from conferences typically take a long time to percolate out into the wider community, I thought I’d jot down a few notes of the things which I found interesting from the talks I saw (it was multi-track so I missed at least as much).
  • Some notes on Angular 2 AoT mode with Webpack, Sass & ngtools

    Earlier this week I set out to convert a few of my Angular 2 apps to use Ahead-of-time (AoT) compilation. I’ve just been to AngularConnect and heard about a project named “@ngtools/webpack” (video here) which supposedly allows you to use the same build tools that the angular-cli project uses, even if you don’t use the cli (which is the case with my stuff right now). So I eagerly searched out@ngtools/webpack on npm and found this:
  • An Early Look at SKQW: JavaScript Audio Visualizer

    SKQW (pronounced “skew”) is a native desktop audio visualization application written in TypeScript with Angular 2, and implemented on the Electron framework. It is currently in alpha and a compiled binary only exists for Windows, but I’m hoping that - if there is interest - I can push the project forward and improve stability, features and of course bring full support to Mac OS X and Linux. If you want to check out the project itself, go to the SKQW website.
  • Components with Custom Templates in Angular 2 (beta.7)

    Want to create a reusable Angular 2 component which can be customized with a user-provided template? I had this use case and could not find any relevant documentation or tutorials, so after a few days digging around the internals on Angular 2, I am sharing the result of my research. This is one way to do this - perhaps there are other, better ways. Feedback is welcome! (TL;DR - working demo on Plunker)
  • Angular 2, CommonJS and Circular Dependencies

    Yesterday I lost several hours to the following error in an Angular 2 app I am working on: Cannot resolve all parameters for 'BaseDataService'(Http, undefined, ODataService). Make sure that all the parameters are decorated with Inject or have valid type annotations and that 'BaseDataService' is decorated with Injectable. The undefined in this case is my redux AppStore service. Other dependencies (Http, ODataService) worked just fine. Even weirder - I was successfully injecting AppStore into several other components without issue.
  • My Thoughts on ngEurope 2014 and AngularJS 2.0

    I write this from a tiny apartment in Paris, sitting up in bed on a sleepy Friday morning after a crazy couple of days at the ngEurope conference. I would like to share a few thoughts and experiences about what I’ve seen and learned over the past couple of days. This isn’t going to be a purely technical blog post. I also won’t try to be comprehensive in covering all the talks.
