file_type_ng_component_ts customers-routing.module.ts
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { Routes, RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
import { ListPageComponent } from './list-page/list-page.component';
import { DetailPageComponent } from './detail-page/detail-page.component';


const routes: Routes = [
  { path: '', component: ListPageComponent },
  { path: ':id', component: DetailPageComponent }
];

@NgModule({
  imports: [RouterModule.forChild(routes)],
  exports: [RouterModule]
})
export class CustomersRoutingModule { }

SEO Service

file_type_ng_component_ts seo.service.ts
import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { Title, Meta } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { Router } from '@angular/router';

@Injectable({
  providedIn: 'root'
})
export class SeoService {

  constructor(private title: Title, private meta: Meta, private router: Router) { }

  generateTags({ title = '', description = '', image = '' }) {

    this.title.setTitle(title);
    this.meta.addTags([
      // Open Graph
      { name: 'og:url', content: `https://firestarter.fireship.io${this.router.url}` },
      { name: 'og:title', content: title },
      { name: 'og:description', content: description },

      description: 'A list filled with customers'
    });

    this.customers = this.db.collection('customers').valueChanges({ idField: 'id' });
