Importing into Project

ack-angular uses file based imports, importing the index does nothing.

Import Samples

Various Import Examples

import { pipes, components } from "ack-angular"

//save as above
import { declarations as pipes } from "ack-angular/pipes"
import { declarations as components } from "ack-angular/declarations"

Dependency Based Import Examples

If you attempt to import any of the following, certain dependencies must have already been installed.

check dependency map

//requires @angular/router imports
import { RouteReporter } from "ack-angular/RouteReporter.directive"
import { RouteWatchReporter } from "ack-angular/RouteWatchReporter"

Dependency Map

If you import the following files, make sure you have installed it's dependencies

You can ignore all of this if you used ack-webpack to install jsDependencies

  • ack-angular/RouteReporter.directive.ts
    • Import Example : import { RouteReporter } from "ack-angular/RouteReporter.directive"
    • Dependency Install npm install @angular/router --save-dev
  • ack-angular/RouteWatchReporter.ts
    • Import Example : import { RouteWatchReporter } from "ack-angular/RouteWatchReporter"
    • Dependency Install npm install @angular/router --save-dev

The Extended Documentation may help bring further understanding as to what is required and when to import dependencies


Directives and Components making development life more joyful

Common Components

Include one file and access several

import { pipes as ackPipes , components as ackComps } from "ack-angular/declarations";
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

  declarations:[...ackComps, ...ackPipes]

Complex Components

Components that have additional dependencies or restrictions


A directive that exposes @angular/router metadata for use in a component template

import { RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
import { RouteWatchReporter } from "ack-angular/RouteWatchReporter"
import { RouteReporter } from "ack-angular/RouteReporter.directive"
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

  imports:[ RouterModule.forRoot() ]
