I’ve gone through many Angular books and Pro Angular, 2nd Edition is the most up to date and well written. I’ve followed the free chapter on Github called “Your First Angular App” for Angular 4.1 and it was quite easy getting the project setup and creating the ToDo app.
Unfortunately if you buy the eBook from other than the publisher (Apress), the formatting is all messed up and the code is hard to read and you’ll have a hard time following the project based workflow.
Try the free chapter on Github and if you like it and want to continue, make sure to get the PDF or ePub version of the eBook from the publisher.
You can try the demo ToDo app I created from the chapter here:
I wasn’t able to use Bootstrap the way the book directed, so I just linked the HTML to the Bootstrap CDN. Also you must use beta 4 of Bootstrap. I tried beta 6 and it didn’t look right. Instead of using the package.json in the book to do a
npm install, I performed a
npm install -S PACKAGE_NAME for dependencies or
npm install -D PACKAGE_NAME for devDependencies to get the latest version.
