How to use Angular2 routing


I'm trying to write a single-page app but I can't get the routing to work. I tried using many tutorials but they seem to become outdated very quickly, considering that Angular2 is still on beta.

It seems that as soon as I add any reference to router directives or router configuration or router providers, the app stops working and the following error is printed on the browser's console:

Error: Zone</ZoneDelegate</ZoneDelegate.prototype.invoke@http://localhost:3000/node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2-polyfills.js:332:20 Zone</Zone</Zone.prototype.run@http://localhost:3000/node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2-polyfills.js:227:25 scheduleResolveOrReject/<@http://localhost:3000/node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2-polyfills.js:576:53 Zone</ZoneDelegate</ZoneDelegate.prototype.invokeTask@http://localhost:3000/node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2-polyfills.js:365:24 Zone</Zone</Zone.prototype.runTask@http://localhost:3000/node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2-polyfills.js:263:29 drainMicroTaskQueue@http://localhost:3000/node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2-polyfills.js:482:26 ZoneTask/this.invoke@http://localhost:3000/node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2-polyfills.js:434:22 Evaluating http://localhost:3000/angular2/router Error loading http://localhost:3000/app/main.js

Right now I have the following files, which don't work:


<html> <head> <meta charset="utf-8"> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=edge"> <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1"> <title>Rapid</title> <!-- 1. Load libraries --> <!-- IE required polyfills, in this exact order --> <link href="css/dashboard.css" rel="stylesheet"> <link href="css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet"> <script src="node_modules/es6-shim/es6-shim.min.js"></script> <script src="node_modules/systemjs/dist/system-polyfills.js"></script> <script src="node_modules/angular2/es6/dev/src/testing/shims_for_IE.js"></script> <script src="node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2-polyfills.js"></script> <script src="node_modules/systemjs/dist/system.src.js"></script> <script src="node_modules/rxjs/bundles/Rx.js"></script> <script src="node_modules/angular2/bundles/angular2.dev.js"></script> <script src="https://code.angularjs.org/2.0.0-beta.0/http.dev.js"></script> <!-- 2.

Display the application --> <body> <app>Loading...</app> </body> </html>


import {MainApp} from './mainApp.component'; import {ROUTER_PROVIDERS} from 'angular2/router'; import {bootstrap} from 'angular2/platform/browser'; bootstrap(MainApp, [ ROUTER_PROVIDERS ]);


import {Component} from 'angular2/core'; import {ROUTER_DIRECTIVES, RouteConfig} from 'angular2/router'; import {Home} from './home.component' @Component({ selector: 'app', template: ` <div>Done</div> `, directives: [ROUTER_DIRECTIVES] }) @RouteConfig([ { path: '/', component: Home, as: 'Home' } ]) export class MainApp {}


import {Component} from 'angular2/core'; @Component({ template: '<div>Home</div>', }) export class Home {}

I'm sorry if this is a newbie question, but I've been stuck on it since yesterday and I don't know how else to solve it...


Make sure router.dev.js(included) & app/main.js in correct location.

You missed few things here.

<ol><li>Do add base with href="/" tag on your page like <base href="/"></li> <li>App component template will have <router-outlet></router-outlet> directive</li> <li>Then use useAsDefault: true for your specified route</li> </ol>

do below change in route

@RouteConfig([ { path: '/', component: Home, as: 'Home', useAsDefault: true } ])


The problem for the error you are facing now, is because of a missing router.dev.js in your index.html. But as @PankajParkar already suggested, you need to add a little more stuff to your code to get it really working :)
