How to create your first angular 7 library (link)

So lets start with Verdaccio private registry setup and configuration.

Step 1: Install Verdaccio
>> npm install -g verdaccio

Step 2: Install pm2, will require to start Verdaccio service

>>npm install pm2 -g

Step 3: Run Verdaccio in background using pm2

>> pm2 start /verdaccio bin file path

In my case on windows machine: pm2 start C:/Users/userName/AppData/Roaming/npm/node_modules/verdaccio/bin/verdaccio

Step 4: Set the verdaccio registry as a source. By default original NPM registry set.

>> npm set registry http://localhost:4873/
>> npm set ca null

Step 5: Registering a user in verdaccio registry

>> npm adduser --registry http://localhost:4873

It will ask for username, password and valid email id to be entered. Make a note of this details that will use to login in verdaccio registry to publish our library.

Step 6: Go to angular workspace "libraryCollection"
>> cd libraryCollection

Step 7: Login into verdaccio registry. Enter the same username, password and email id set in Step 5.
>> npm login

Step 8: Go to /libraries/dist/your-library-name/your-library-name-0.0.1.tgz
>> cd libraries
>> cd dist
>> cd your-library-name

Step 9: Finally publish our library your-library-name-0.0.1.tgz on verdaccio registry

>> npm publish your-library-name-0.0.1.tgz

Now browse http://localhost:4873 and you will see new our library package there.

That's it. If you want to use your verdaccio library package from other Angular project then follow these steps.

Step 1: If you already have other angular application then go to root of that application or create new app using below commands.

>> ng new new-project

Step 2: Go to root of your new project and our library package from verdaccio registry.
>> cd new-project
>> npm install your-library-name

Step 3: Now we can import it in app.module.ts of new project

import { YourLibraryNameModule } from 'your-library-name';
@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AppComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    YourLibraryNameModule
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})

Step 4: Lets add our library selector tag "your-prefix-name-your-library-name" in app.component.html to display library component content.

Lets assume, your-prefix-name = webtechfunda and your-library-name = myfirstlib
then the tag will be like below.


Step 6: Run your new project by using below command and check output. you should see your library content on your new application page.

>> ng serve -o
