Components Inheritance

Components Inheritance is very powerful and can help you build better Applications

ViewContainer (Structural Directives)

<div>
<h2 *myIf="show">Hello {{name}}</h2> <-- EmbeddedView
<button (click)="show=!show">
Toggle
</button>
</div>
<template [myIf]="show">     <-- ViewContainerRef
<h2>Hello {{name}}</h2> <-- TemplateRef
</template>

Access to Angular version

<my-app ng-version="2.3.0">
<div>
<h2>Hello Angular2</h2>
</div>
</my-app>
import {VERSION} from '@angular/core';console.log(VERSION);
// {
