A WIP Angular 2 cheatsheet for dart (alpha 36)

Bootstrap angular

import 'package:angular2/bootstrap.dart' show bootstrap;
main() => bootstrap(MyApp); //MyApp is a component

Bootstrap angular with default router

import 'package:angular2/angular2.dart' show bind;
import 'package:angular2/bootstrap.dart' show bootstrap;
import 'package:angular2/router.dart' show APP_BASE_HREF, HashLocationStrategy, LocationStrategy, ROUTER_BINDINGS;

main() {
  bootstrap(App, [
    // bind(LocationStrategy).toClass(HashLocationStrategy) // if you want to use #


@Component(selector: 'selector-name', viewBindings: const [injectables])
@View(templateUrl: "home.html", directives: const [directives])
class MyComponent {}


template: replace the current element with the contents of the HTML string.

@Component(selector: 'my-banner')
@View(template: '<div class="banner">...</div>')
class MyBanner {}

templateUrl: replace the current element with the contents loaded by the specified URL

@Component(selector: 'my-banner')
@View(templateUrl: 'package:mypackage/my-banner.html')
class MyBanner {}
<!-- my-banner.html -->
<div class="banner">...</div>

directives: Specifies a list of directives that can be used within a template. Its optional

Add Angular core directives (NgFor, NgIf, NgNonBindable, NgSwitch, NgSwitchWhen, NgSwitchDefault)

@Component(selector: 'my-component')
@View(templateUrl: "my-component.html", directives: const [CORE_DIRECTIVES])
class MyComponent {}

Add directives/components to be used in the template

@Directive(selector: '[opacity]')
class Opacity {/* ... */}

@Component(selector: '[item]')
@View(templateUrl: "item.html")
class Item {/* ... */}

@Component(selector: 'my-component')
@View(templateUrl: "my-component.html", directives: const [Opacity, Item])
class MyComponent {}


selector: The CSS selector that triggers the instantiation of a directive.

  • element-name: select by element name.
  • .class: select by class name.
  • [attribute]: select by attribute name.
  • [attribute=value]: select by attribute name and value.
  • :not(sub_selector): select only if the element does not match the sub_selector.
  • selector1, selector2: select if either selector1 or selector2 matches.

Selector example

@Component(selector: 'my-component')
@View(templateUrl: "my-component.html")
class MyComponent {}

//<div my-component></div>
@Directive(selector: '[my-component]')
@View(templateUrl: "my-component.html")
class MyComponent {}

Inject dependencies into a component

@Injectable() //Needed for Angular transformer
class MyService {}

@Component(selector: 'selector-name', appInjector: const [MyService])
class MyComponent {
    MyService service;

Accesing host DOM element in a component/decorator

import 'dart:html' as dom;
import 'package:angular2/angular2.dart' show Directive, ElementRef;

//<div selector-name></div>
@Directive(selector: '[selector-name]')
class MyComponent {
    dom.Element element;
    MyComponent(ElementRef ref) {
        element =  ref.nativeElement;

properties: The properties property defines a set of directiveProperty to bindingProperty key-value pairs. Its optional

  • directiveProperty specifies the component property where the value is written.
  • bindingProperty specifies the DOM property where the value is read from.

Example of properties

//<my-component my-name="Hodor" my-desc="hooodor?"></my-component>
    selector: 'my-component', 
    properties: const [
        'name: my-name',// -> set name(name)
        'desc: my-desc'
@View(templateUrl: "my-component.html")
class MyComponent {
    String _name;
    int desc;
    set name(name) => _name;
You can’t perform that action at this time.
