- Learn how to design Single Page Applications (SPAs) with the latest versions of the popular frameworks Angular 2 and ASP.NET Web API
- An explicit focus on understanding how the two tools fit together gives this book a unique insight on how to make SPAs for you and your clients that just work
- This book covers all the major topics you need to create SPAs with ASP.NET Web API and Angular 2: routing, creating clean URLs, handling data (OData), and authentication
For most developers, writing code is a balance between maintainability and productivity how quickly can you write it versus how much more you have to write in the future. Writing APIs goes some way to striking a balance, as you can have an API that feeds data from your back-end to front-end service for consumption. Now, this front-end can change to a mobile app, a website, desktop app, but what you do at the back doesn't change and remains ASP.NET Web API.
This book focuses on blending and connecting ASP.NET Web API and AngularJS. We'll guide you through building a fully-featured, potentially shippable SPA project with all its core aspects in place: readable URIs, OData retrieval, authentication patterns, RESTful interfaces, and more.
By the end of the book, you will be able to make impressive SPAs using ASP.NET Web API and Angular 2.
