Visual Studio Code TypeScript and Html snippets and code examples for Angular 2,4,5,6,7,8,9 & 10.

All code snippets are based on and follow the Angular style guide

The source for the snippets come from:

and most of all, none of this would exist without the help of all the contributers for fixing, enhancing, testing and making suggestions.

Snippet Postfix

Postfix Description
-cheatsheet Cheat Sheet


This extension is optimized for developers that use Angular and are no longer using AngularJS (Angular 1). If you type in AngularJS keywords, it will suggest an Angular solutions. This is by design and meant to help developers learn how AngularJS concepts and techniques map to Angular.

See example below for ng-repeat and ng-click:



All Angular snippets starts with "ng-". Multiple snippets come in multiple variations. For instance when you want to create a new component you can choose between having the template and css inline or not:

  • ng-component
  • ng-component-inline




ng-for currently has even more variations, so make sure you pick the one you want before you press enter:

  • ng-for
  • ng-for-index
  • ng-for-li
  • ng-for-trackBy


Angular Material

All Material snippets starts with "m-" and there are now over 50 Material snippets in this package.

Pro Tip

You don't need to type any dashes: "ngrxr" -> "ng-rx-reducer" snippet

If you want intellisense to show emmets before the snippets, you can force the emmets suggestions to show up at the top, by add the following to your editor user settings:

  "emmet.showSuggestionsAsSnippets": true,
  "editor.snippetSuggestions": "top"


Please send any feedback or suggestions to @Mike_BeastCode (Twitter) or create an issue on GitHub.

Open Source

This is an open source project and if you want to contribute I've added issues on github that are easy to start with. first-timers-only


Important: This extension due to the nature of it's purpose will create files on your hard drive and if necessary create the respective folder structure. While it should not override any files during this process, I'm not giving any guarantees or take any responsibility in case of lost data.
