Building Beautiful Angular 7 Apps with PrimeNG

by Glen Smith

Angular is a widely popular and productive JavaScript framework, but doesn't always provide consistent components. This course teaches you how to use the PrimeNG component library to build full-featured, beautiful Angular applications in record time.

What you'll learn

Angular is a super productive and wildly popular JavaScript framework for stitching together great web applications. Unfortunately, it doesn’t provide any consistent set of ready-to-use, great-looking UI components out-of-the-box. PrimeNG is that missing library.

In this course, Building Beautiful Angular Apps with PrimeNG, you'll create a fun line business application, Agile Times, while covering a huge array of useful controls.

First, you'll explore specialty controls, including:

  • Realtime charts
  • Searchable datagrids
  • Interactive Google maps
  • Popup dialogs
  • Tree-style controls
Next, you'll dive into advanced topics, such as drag and drop controls, and unit testing.
Finally, you'll discover how to utilize the PrimeNG source when the documentation lets you down.

By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to build useable and consistent Angular applications with PrimeNG.
