Setting up Routes

Setting up Routes in Angular

To set up routes we need to import the RouterModule and then set up the routes in the app.module.ts file. Later we use the routerLink and routerLinkActive for navigation and adding class to the selected link.

Practical Example of "Setting up Routes"

Please follow the mentioned steps:

  1. Create 3 compennts named 'home', 'about' and 'contact'.

  1. Import the RouterModule in the app.module.ts and make entry in the imports array. Further set the routings in the imports section for Routing in the same file as explained below.
  2. Create some hyperlinks in the app.component.html file. Remember using [routerLink] here instead of href attribute. Also, remember adding routerLinkActive attribute to add some class for the selected link in routing.
  3. In the global file for styling in Angular App -- style.css add a class (I've used as 'selected') to add some styling for whichever link is active in router links.


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { RouterModule } from '@angular/router';

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { HomeComponent } from './components/home/home.component';
import { AboutComponent } from './components/about/about.component';
import { ContactComponent } from './components/contact/contact.component';

  declarations: [
  imports: [
      {path:'', component: HomeComponent},
      {path:'home', component: HomeComponent},
      {path:'about', component: AboutComponent},
      {path:'contact', component:ContactComponent}
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }


  <li><a [routerLink]="'/home'" routerLinkActive="selected">Home</a></li>
  <li><a [routerLink]="'/about'" routerLinkActive="selected">About</a></li>
  <li><a [routerLink]="'/contact'" routerLinkActive="selected">Contact</a></li>



.selected {background:orange;}
