angular-router-loader

CircleCI npm version

A Webpack loader for Angular that enables string-based module loading with the Angular Router

Package was previously named angular2-router-loader

Installation

npm install angular-router-loader --save-dev

Usage

Add the angular-router-loader to your typescript loaders

Angular Version >= 5

loaders: [
  {
    test: /\.ts$/,
    loaders: [
      'awesome-typescript-loader'
    ]
  },
  {
    test: /\.(ts|js)$/,
    loaders: [
      'angular-router-loader'
    ]
  }  
]

Angular Version < 5

loaders: [
  {
    test: /\.ts$/,
    loaders: [
      'awesome-typescript-loader',
      'angular-router-loader'
    ]
  }  
]

Lazy Loading

In your route configuration, use loadChildren with a relative path to your lazy loaded angular module. The string is delimited with a # where the right side of split is the angular module class name.

import { Routes } from '@angular/router';

export const routes: Routes = [
  { path: 'lazy', loadChildren: './lazy.module#LazyModule' }
];

NOTE: When specifying a relative path to lazy loaded module, one of the following two conditions must hold:

  • The routes are defined in the same module file where it is imported with RouterModule.forRoot or RouterModule.forChild
  • The routes are defined in a separate routing file, and that routing file is a sibling of module file.

Synchronous Loading

For synchronous module loading, add the sync=true as a query string value to your loadChildren string. The module will be included in your bundle and not lazy-loaded.

import { Routes } from '@angular/router';

export const routes: Routes = [
  { path: 'lazy', loadChildren: './lazy.module#LazyModule?sync=true' }
];
