    angular-decorated

    A collection of angular 2 style decorators for angularjs 1.5.x projects written in typescript

    Prerequisites

    angular-decorated tries to mimic angular 2 style decorators as closely as possible.

    Some of the decorator interfaces (@Component and @Directive) were heavily inspired by this excellent Angular 1.x styleguide (ES2015).

    Behind the scenes it uses Metadata Reflection API to add metadata to the classes.

    Installation

    npm i --save-dev angular-decorated

    Dependencies: angular and reflect-metadata

    I assume you're using this package for angular project written in typescript and using some kind of bundler like Webpack or SystemJS, so no need to worry about the dependencies then, they'll be resolved automatically by your module loader, otherwise you need to provide reflect-metadata shim by yourself.

    Available decorators

    Decorator Angular analog Details
    @NgModule angular.module
    @Injectable angular.service / angular.provider registers as provider if decorated class implements $get method
    @Component angular.component
    @Input angular.component options binding ('<') can be used only inside @Component decorator
    default input binding value can be overridden by passing parameter to the decorator
    @Output angular.component options binding ('&') can be used only inside @Component decorator
    @Directive angular.directive
    @Pipe angular.filter

    Usage with examples

    Let's say we have a todo-form component from classical todo example with the following template

    /* ----- todo/todo-form/todo-form.html ----- */
    <form name="todoForm" ng-submit="$ctrl.onSubmit();">
      <input type="text" ng-model="$ctrl.todo.title">
      <button type="submit">Submit</button>
    </form>

    If we were writing in plain es6/typescript without decorators we'd define this component like this:

    /* ----- todo/todo-form/todo-form.component.js ----- */
    const templateUrl = require('./todo-form.html');
     
    export const TodoFormComponent = {
      bindings: {
        todo: '<',
        onAddTodo: '&'
      },
      templateUrl,
      controller: class TodoFormComponent {
        todo;
        onAddTodo;
        
        $onChanges(changes) {
          if (changes.todo) {
            this.todo = Object.assign({}, this.todo);
          }
        }
        onSubmit() {
          if (!this.todo.title) return;
          this.onAddTodo({
            $event: {
              todo: this.todo
            }
          });
        }
      }
    };

    And then we'll register our component with angular like so:

    import angular from 'angular';
    import { TodoFormComponent } from './todo-form.component';
     
    export const TodoFormModule = angular
      .module('todo.form', [])
      .component('todoForm', TodoFormComponent)
      .name;

    Using angular-decorated decorators in typescript the component code will look like this

    /* ----- todo/todo-form/todo-form.component.ts ----- */
    import { Component, Input, Output } from 'angular-decorated';
     
    const templateUrl = require('./todo-form.html');
     
    @Component({
      selector: 'todoForm',
      templateUrl
    })
    export class TodoFormComponent {
        @Input() todo;
        @Output() onAddTodo;
        
        $onChanges(changes) {
          if (changes.todo) {
            this.todo = {...this.todo};
          }
        }
        onSubmit() {
          if (!this.todo.title) return;
          this.onAddTodo({
            $event: {
              todo: this.todo
            }
          });
        }
    }

    Notice how @Input and @Output decorators replace bindings of the component, by default @Input correlates to '<' value of the binding and @Output - to the '&' value, you can override bindings values only in @Input decorator by passing '=' or '@' if you need to.

    And we'll register it with angular like so:

    /* ----- todo/todo-form/todo-form.module.ts ----- */
    import { NgModule } from 'angular-decorated';
    import { TodoFormComponent } from './todo-form.component';
     
    @NgModule({
      declarations: [TodoFormComponent]
    })
    export class TodoFormModule {}

    You should declare all of the components (@Component), directives (@Directive) and filters (@Pipe) you want to register with some module in declarations of @NgModule decorator, all of the services (@Injectable) and providers (also @Injectable with $get method) you should declare as providers of @NgModule decorator, and all of the modules your module depends on in imports. Name of the class decorated with @NgModule is the name of the module you should provide in imports of other module declaration that depends on this module. In addition you can define config and run blocks for your module by adding config and run methods to your module class declaration.

    Here's an example of provider using @Injectable decorator

    /* ----- greeting/greeting.service.ts ----- */
    import { Injectable } from 'angular-decorated';
     
    export interface IGreetingService {
      getGreeting(): string;
    }
     
    @Injectable()
    export class GreetingService implements ng.IServiceProvider {
      private greeting = 'Hello World!';
     
      // Configuration function
      public setGreeting(greeting: string) {
        this.greeting = greeting;
      }
     
      // Provider's factory function
      public $get(): IGreetingService {
        return {
          getGreeting: () => { return this.greeting; }
        };
      }
    }

    This is how angular filter looks like using angular 2 style @Pipe decorator:

    /* ----- greeting/uppercase.filter.ts ----- */
    import { Pipe, PipeTransform } from 'angular-decorated';
     
    @Pipe({name: 'uppercase'})
    export class UppercasePipe implements PipeTransform {
      public transform(item: string) {
        return item.toUpperCase();
      }
    }

    And here's an example of provider registration with @NgModule decorator, its configuration in config method of module class and it's usage in run method:

    import { NgModule } from 'angular-decorated';
    import { TodoFormModule } from 'todo/todo-form/todo-form.module';
    import { GreetingService, IGreetingService } from 'greeting/greeting.service';
    import { UppercasePipe } from 'greeting/uppercase.filter';
     
    @NgModule({
      imports: [
        TodoFormModule
      ],
      declarations: [UppercasePipe],
      providers: [GreetingService]
    })
    export class AppModule {
      public config(GreetingServiceProvider: GreetingService) {
        GreetingServiceProvider.setGreeting('Hello decorated provider');
      }
     
      public run(GreetingService: IGreetingService) {
        console.log(GreetingService.getGreeting());
      }
    }

    Please notice, that you can't define constructor and $inject anything into it, instead specify all of the injections you want to provide to your module config and run blocks as arguments of config and run methods of the module class and they'll be injected by their names.
