The JHipster Mini-Book The JHipster Mini-Book is a guide to getting started with hip technologies today: AngularJS, Bootstrap, and Spring Boot. All of these frameworks are wrapped up in an easy-to-use project called JHipster.

This book shows you how to build an app with JHipster, and guides you through the plethora of tools, techniques and options you can use. Furthermore, it explains the UI and API building blocks so you understand the underpinnings of your great application.

10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

Testing Angular 2 Applications

Click here to see an updated version of this tutorial that's been upgraded for Angular 2.0 RC1.

This article is the second in a series about learning Angular 2. It describes how to test a simple Angular 2 application. In a previous article, Getting Started with Angular 2, I showed how to develop a simple search and edit feature. In this tutorial, I did my best to keep the tests similar to last year's Testing AngularJS Applications so you can compare the code between AngularJS and Angular 2.

What you'll build

You'll learn to use Jasmine for unit testing controllers and Protractor for integration testing. Angular's documentation has a good guide to unit testing if you'd like more information on testing and why it's important.

The best reason for writing tests is to automate your testing. Without tests, you'll likely be testing manually. This manual testing will take longer and longer as your codebase grows.

What you'll need

  • About 15-30 minutes.
  • A favorite text editor or IDE. I recommend IntelliJ IDEA.
  • Git installed.
  • Node.js and npm installed. I recommend using nvm.

Get the tutorial project

Clone the angular2-tutorial repository using git and install its dependencies.

git clone https://github.com/mraible/angular2-tutorial.git
cd angular2-tutorial
npm install

If you haven't completed the Getting Started with Angular 2 tutorial, you should peruse it so you understand how this application works. You can also simply start the app with npm start and view it in your browser at http://localhost:5555/.
