DNN module development with Angular

I finally finished my long promised blog series about writing DNN modules with Angular 1

This blog series should set you in the position to start DNN module development with Angular even if you haven't done a module for DNN yet!

So we will start with an empty project in Visual studio and build it step by step. I plan to guide you through all these steps.

But beware, this is no Angular course! I will not explain all the stuff that is involved in full detail because that would fill a book and is way too much for a blog like this, but where possible I'll provide you some links with further information to the corresponding topic.

First we will start with a DNN 7 style Angular module using standard View.ascx that is able to run in DNN 7 and later we will convert this to a SPA module type for DNN 8.

You'll find the different parts of the blog series here:

I'm developer. Born in 1965, grown up in a small village near Hamburg. Studied IT in Hamburg and moved to Hanover in the late 90's. Married 24 years now and having 2 childs. After developing projects several years in desktop and web applications in Visual Foxpro I changed in 2007 to dotnet / C# / ASP.NET & DotNetNuke. Since then I'm addicted to DNN and made it my main hobby and profession. My latest hobbyhorse is doing DNN with client site programming

Torsten Weggen  I visited a session by Daniel Mettler from 2sic / Switzerland at DNNConnect 2017. He will provide as soon with a blog post about this topic and a dnn library that could be used in Angular 2+ projects to manage communication between Angular and DNN.
