  • Passing Data Between Components – Day Two
    • We have seen that we can pass the data between the components using the @Input and @Output directives and using event emitters. Let’s see the other two methods – @View child and the services which can be used to pass the data between components.

  • If each component contains it’s own state then it becomes very difficult to take a screenshot of the state of the whole application because we divided the state at the component level.
  • If we have multiple components and each component contains its own copy of data (state) then there is a huge chance that some duplicate (same data) data is present in multiple components, so this redundant data is not good as a point of view of the modern application.
  • Redux works on the centralized data mechanism that means instead of storing the state at component level we store the state in a centralized location and all the components can access this store.
  • After installing the Redux package now we can create building block like Store, Action and Reducer for our application.
  • The first parameter contains the previous state of the application and second parameter contains the action type and new data payload for the state change.

  • This release contains a single fix to a security vulnerability that was reported for Handlebars.
  • Handlebars was not used during the build process and did not affect any of our users, but the vulnerability was still reported by Github who only check version numbers.
  • Since the faulty version of Handlebars might still be part of your (or ) files, you might need to update those files before the alert disappears.
  • The package that the CLI depended on ( ) has since removed their usage of Handlebars entirely.

  • Let’s see the other two methods – @View child and the services which can be used to pass the data between components.
  • When we see the code snippet, we can see that the class has a normal counter property and a method named IncreaseNumber() which increases the counter by one every time this function is called.
  • These lines of the code are used to query the child component and inject the same property inside the local object of the child component which is created in the second line.
  • It also has two functions IncreaseNumber() and Dicrease(), in which Increase () calls the Function which is present in the child component and Dicrease () reduces the counter property of the child component by 1.
  • Let’s see the Data.service.ts – – Above is the code for the DataService class but before going into the details of this class, let us try to understand some snippet available In the code, – – It also gives us the observables from the subject using the Method as observable()…
