  1. Hi Aaron,

    I attended your session on tooling for angular 2 and i really liked it.
    You had another session in the morning “Intro to JavaScript Modules” which i missed. I would like to know if you would be presenting it anywhere else or if possible can you please share your slides ?

  2. Hi Aaron.
    Great idea. Great website and informations… Congrats!
    So, I always receive questions of angular programmers (not .net developers), about “Visual Studio is better than WebStorm to develop with AngularJS?”. Like to Java developers wants use Visual Studio community to develop in Angular.

    What you have say about?!
    Thank you.

    1. Thanks! Unfortunately I have almost no experience with WebStorm OR Java. One thing I can tell you listening to others is that Visual Studio Code might be closer to the experience you would get with WebStorm and a lot of people in the open source community seem to like it including developers on the Angular team.

      It’s different when compared to Visual Studio Community because it’s more of a code editor than a full development environment. It’s free and works on Windows, Mac, and Linux. I’m not sure how well it supports Java yet, but sounds like it works very well with front-end languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and TypeScript) and now has support for extensions (so if Java isn’t supported, it could be added via an extension). It’s something I want to explore more on the blog going forward.

  3. By the way, regular Visual Studio – like Vishal Studio 2013, for example, – is almost unusable with Angular 2. It dictates too much, requiring to use outdated version of TypeScript etc.
    I’m mostly .Net developer, but really like WebStorm for Angular and NodeJs development. Glad to find your site and going to try Visual Studio Code (MS stack) with Angular 2. Again, I already know that NodeJs blends with Angular and TypeScript perfectly. Really like NodeJs…

  4. Really awesome tutorial! Exactly what I’ve been looking for.

    It’s great that you set up the environment step by step, so I really know what all the files are about. It really put me off in other tutorials that I had to start with a whole bunch of files and dependencies that just have to be there for the moment and maybe some day when I’m grown up I’ll be told what they are actually for.

  5. Hi Aaron,

    Amazing articles. Really easy to follow. I was wondering if you had any experience with CoreUI http://coreui.io/?

    The other template AdminLTE https://adminlte.io/

    It would be really cool if you could show how to integrate this UI templates with ASP.NET CORE? CoreUI uses Angular CLI but I’m a newb when it comes to webpack and how it works.


    1. Thanks for the idea. This could be a bit of work but the themes are nice. They are Bootstrap based so checkout ngx-bootstrap (http://valor-software.com/ngx-bootstrap/) if you’re just getting started using Bootstrap with Angular (2.x and up). There’s still no ASP.NET Core backend but you can certainly start with the single page app and add the backend later for learning purposes.
