Dynamic Lazy Loadable Component For Angular

Are you looking for lazyload Component for your angular app. If yes then in this post i am going to share simple angular lazy load plugin which support dynamic lazy load. You can dynamically fetch images and integrate this Dynamic Lazy Loadable Component.
angular-lazy-load-min

Installation

Install via npm;

npm i ngx-loadable-component

* unfortunately, only an aot build angular setup will work correctly within the loadable component setup 🤷 ️ .. an example of how this is setup can be seen within the base directory of this repo(app demo)

Setup

Create a component you wish to dynamically load… e.g. loadable component

upside-down-face-emoji.component.ts

@Component({
  selector: 'app-upside-down-face-emoji'
  ...
})
export class UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponent { }

* its important that this component does not use OnPush changeDetection as this will interfere with the loadable component setup

Then create a module for the loadable component:

upside-down-face-emoji.module.ts

import { LoadableComponentModule } from 'ngx-loadable-component';

import { UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponent } from './upside-down-face-emoji.component';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    // register as loadable component
    LoadableComponentModule.forChild(UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponent)
  ],
  declarations: [UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponent]
})
export class UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponentModule {}

Create a manifest file which lists all your loadable components:

app-loadable.manifests.ts

import { LoadableManifest } from 'ngx-loadable-component';

export enum LoadableComponentIds {
  UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE = 'UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponent'
}

export const appLoadableManifests: Array<LoadableManifest> = [
  {
    // used to retrieve the loadable component later
    componentId: LoadableComponentIds.UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE,
    // must be a unique value within the app...
    // but apart from that only used by angular when loading component
    path: `loadable-${LoadableComponentIds.UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE}`,
    // relative path to component module
    loadChildren: './components/upside-down-face-emoji/upside-down-face-emoji.module#UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponentModule'
  }
];

Add the loadable component manifest & loadable component module to root app module:

app.module.ts

import { LoadableComponentModule } from 'ngx-loadable-component';

// loadable components manifest
import { appLoadableManifests } from './app-loadable.manifests';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
      ...
  ],
  imports: [
    ...
    // components to load as seperate async
    LoadableComponentModule.forRoot(appLoadableManifests)
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

Be sure to import the loadable component module into any feature modules you use it in:

my-feature.module.ts

import { LoadableComponentModule } from 'ngx-loadable-component';

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
      ...
  ],
  imports: [
    ...
    LoadableComponentModule.forFeature()
  ]
})
export class MyFeatureModule { }

Usage (basic)

Add a loadable component where needed:

app.component.html

<div class="app--emojis">

    <loadable-component [componentId]="UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE_COMPONENT_ID" [loadComponent]="loadUpsideDownFaceComponent">
        <!-- any element in the loadable component content area will only be shown whilst loadComponent is false -->
        <app-placeholder-emoji></app-placeholder-emoji>
    </loadable-component>

</div>


app.component.ts

import { LoadableComponentIds } from '../../app-loadable.manifests';

@Component({ ... })
export class AppComponent {
  // loadable component ids
  UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE_COMPONENT_ID: string = LoadableComponentIds.UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE;

  // flags to load components
  // setting this to 'true' will cause the loadable component
  // to load the specified component id
  loadUpsideDownFaceComponent: boolean = false;
}

Usage (with Inputs/Outputs)

If our loadable component has inputs/outputs – like so:

upside-down-face-emoji.component.html

<a (click)="onClick()">
    <div>🙃</div>
    <div>{{ text }}</div>
</a>

upside-down-face-emoji.component.ts

export class UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponent {
  @Input() text: string = 'upside down';

  @Output() clicked: EventEmitter<string> = new EventEmitter<string>();

  constructor() {}

  onClick(): void {
    this.clicked.emit(this.text);
  }
}

We then create a model representing the inputs/outputs (for some typing goodness 💯):

upside-down-face-emoji.inputs.model.ts

import { LoadableComponentInputs } from 'ngx-loadable-component';

export interface UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponentInputs extends LoadableComponentInputs {
  text: string;
}

upside-down-face-emoji.outputs.model.ts

import { LoadableComponentOutputs } from 'ngx-loadable-component';

export interface UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponentOutputs extends LoadableComponentOutputs {
  clicked: Function;
}

And add our inputs/outputs to the loadable component wherever its used:

app.component.html

<div class="app--emojis">

    <loadable-component
        [componentId]="UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE_COMPONENT_ID"
        [loadComponent]="loadUpsideDownFaceComponent"
        [componentInputs]="upsideDownFaceInputs"
        [componentOutputs]="upsideDownFaceOutputs">
        <!-- any element in the loadable component content area will only be shown whilst loadComponent is false -->
        <app-placeholder-emoji></app-placeholder-emoji>
    </loadable-component>

</div>



app.component.ts

import { LoadableComponentIds } from '../../app-loadable.manifests';
import { UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponentInputs } from '../../components/upside-down-face-emoji/models/upside-down-face-emoji.inputs.model';
import { UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponentOutputs } from '../../components/upside-down-face-emoji/models/upside-down-face-emoji.outputs.model';

@Component({ ... })
export class AppComponent {
  // loadable component ids
  UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE_COMPONENT_ID: string = LoadableComponentIds.UPSIDE_DOWN_FACE;

  // flags to load components
  // setting this to 'true' will cause the loadable component
  // to load the specified component id
  loadUpsideDownFaceComponent: boolean = false;

  // inputs for loadable component
  get upsideDownFaceInputs(): UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponentInputs {
    return {
      text: 'not upside down'
    }
  }

  // outputs for loadable component
  get upsideDownFaceOutputs(): UpsideDownFaceEmojiComponentOutputs {
    return {
      clicked: (text: string) => this.onClickedUpsideDownFace(text)
    }
  }

  onClickedUpsideDownFace(text: string): void {
    console.log('🖱', text);
  }
}

And voila! we now have input/output binding 👌.
* note that the inputs in the parent component (of the loadable component – e.g. upsideDownFaceInputs()) have to be within a getter or function for change detection to apply correctly

Usage (add custom css classes)

Custom css classes can be passed via the loadable component componentCssClasses input.
These will be added to the host element of the provided loadable component. e.g.

app.component.html

<div class="app--emojis">

    <loadable-component ... [componentCssClasses]="customCssClasses" >
        ...
    </loadable-component>

</div>

app.component.ts

@Component({ ... })
export class AppComponent {
  ...
  // custom css classes
  customCssClasses: Array<string> = ['my-custom--class--1', 'my-custom--class--2']
  ...
}
