    Build an Angular Component Controller Using ES6 Class


    The simplest version of a component in Angular 2 is nothing more than a container for a template. When we need to introduce imperative logic into our component, we do that via an ES6 class. We accomplish the exact same thing in Angular 1.x by using an ES6 class to serve as a controller for a component. In this lesson, we will examine an Angular 2 component to establish the pattern and then illustrate the similarity as we build out our own controller in ES6.
