Learn routing basics in Angular and the usage of the routerLink directive in templates.


Step 1 - Generate a Component

Generate home page component that is loaded by the router.

command line
ng g component home-page

Step 2 - Register it in the Router

file_type_ng_component_ts app-routing.module.ts
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { Routes, RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
import { HomePageComponent } from './home-page/home-page.component';

const routes: Routes = [
  { path: '', component: HomePageComponent }

  imports: [RouterModule.forRoot(routes)],
  exports: [RouterModule]
export class AppRoutingModule { }

Example of a router link with a special CSS class when active.

file_type_html some.component.html
<a routerLink="/" routerLinkActive="some-css-class">Home page</a>
