The default Angular CLI configuration generates components that consist of 4 files. The component class, an HTML template, a stylesheet and a spec file that contains the unit test.
In order to keep our components concise we update our
AppComponent and move the template and style from an external file to inline. This allows us to delete the 2 external files.
We can configure our project to generate the template and the style 'inline' by default.
To do this we run the commands:
ng config schematics.@schematics/angular.component.inlineStyle true ng config schematics.@schematics/angular.component.inlineTemplate true
The changes are made to
angular.json in the project root.
There is a little typo in the transcript. The "style" declaration should be "styles".
For demo purposes, I understand why you might not want template files, but sometimes there are better and easier to manage outside the component. Is this just your preference?
Hey Kevin, it's indeed my preference.
I try to keep my templates short so they can live inside the component.
Also, in WebStorm the 'intellisense' works the same when the template is inline or external, in VS Code that works better when they are outside. :-)
