What this book covers
Chapter 1 , Saying Hello! , guides you through establishing a development environment for the
simplest application possible in order to show you how easy it is to get a web application up and
running with Angular 2 and Bootstrap 4.
Chapter 2 , Working with Bootstrap Components , shows how you can start using Bootstrap 4 by
showcasing a demo layout page, and how you can explore the framework and customize it to your
Chapter 3 , Advanced Bootstrap Components and Customization , explains how to use components
such as Jumbotron, Carousel, and spend you along the way through input groups.
Chapter 4 , Creating the Template , lets you learn how to build a UI template using built-in Angular 2
directives. You'll become familiar with the template syntax, and how to bind properties and events in
an HTML page and transform display using pipes.
Chapter 5 , Routing , helps you understand how router code manages navigation between views when
the user performs application tasks. We will take a look at how we can create static routes as well as

Chapter 10 , Advanced Angular Techniques , introduces advanced Angular techniques. We will
transform our application with help of the Webpack, and we will learn how to install and use the ng2-
bootstrap. We will discover the world of Angular CLI and will use AOT to dramatically decrease the
size of the code for production.
