Create angular library in your private npm registry on AzureDevOps
Today, we are quickly see how to setup an angular library, publish it into your private npm registry on you AzureDevOps project.
This library will be a collections of reusable components.
Create your private repository
Select Artifcats to create it, and follow this tutorial good tutorial https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/devops/artifacts/get-started-npm
Good you have create your feed. Now let’s write the library
Creating library with Angular CLI
Create a project
ng new vso-angular-lib
Add the library project
ng g library ngx-private-components
The library is under projects folder.
Remove all files in
Create two components for example
Place on lib folder and create the components.
cd projects/ngx-private-components/ng g m src/lib/button && ng g c src/lib/button --export
ng g m src/lib/badge && ng g c src/lib/badge --export
Adding style on button component
Adding style on badge component
Now, components are designed, we are finishing to setup the lib for using it.
We are creating different file for simplify export of different module. (heavily inspired from Angular Material).
In your badge & button folder create
public_api.ts file. And export the current module.
export * from './badge.module';// button/public_api.ts
export * from './button.module';
index.ts into badge & button folder and export the local
export * from './public_api';
After that, we have to export all module into our library. On
public_api.ts in ngx-private-components/src folder add :
export * from './lib/badge';
export * from './lib/button';
Now the different components of library it’s done, we are build and publishing it.
Build the library
Place into project root and run
// ngx-private-components it's the name off my lib
ng build ngx-private-components
Go to library builded before
Using the library
ng new vso-angular-test-lib
Install the lib
npm i --save ngx-private-components
Now we can use the different components by adding the modules on your app.module
In the view add the components
<lib-button label="Button"></lib-button><lib-badge label="Bagde 1" color="warn"></lib-badge><lib-badge label="Bagde 2" color="success"></lib-badge>
AzureDevops will permit simply to create our npm private registry and Angular CLI to create a library quickly.
The merge of two is a prefect combo
