Containerizing Angular Applications with Docker

by Dan Wahlin

Learn how to build and run your Angular application code using Docker containers. Explore how to write dockerfiles for custom images, leverage multi-stage dockerfiles, container orchestration with Docker Compose, and much more.

What you'll learn

The Angular CLI provides a great way to build and run Angular applications locally, but what do you do when you need to build Angular in another environment? How do you deploy your Angular application between development, staging/QA, and production environments while ensuring that everything works as planned? In this course, Containerizing Angular Applications with Docker, you'll explore the role that Docker containers can play in simplifying the process of building and deploying Angular applications. First, you'll learn about the role of images and containers, and image registries. Next, you'll discover how to write custom multi-stage Dockerfiles for building Angular code. Then, you'll delve into different server options such as nginx for running your Angular applications efficiently and consistently across environments. Finally, you'll explore how to orchestrate multiple containers using Docker Compose and .yml files. By the end of this course, you'll have the necessary knowledge to efficiently build and run Angular applications across multiple environments by utilizing Docker containers.
