PrimeNG - UI Components for AngularJS 2 Basic Example


In this tutorial we will create a simple example for displaying employee information using PrimeNG. This post we introduce the quick Start PrimeNG-
In the following post we see the PrimeNG components in detail- PrimeNG is a collection of rich UI components for Angular 2. PrimeNG is a sibling of the popular JavaServer Faces Component Suite, PrimeFaces. All widgets are open source and free to use under Apache License 2.0, a commercial friendly license. PrimeNG is developed by PrimeTek Informatics, a company with years of expertise in developing open source UI components. AngularJS makes it possible to use predefined components for development like tables etc. This helps developers save time and efforts. Using PrimeNG developers can create awesome applications in no time

Features of PrimeNG-
  • Derived from the mighty PrimeFaces 60+ Components Easy to Use Accessible
  • Simple Lightweight Powerful
  • Responsive Cross Browser Touch Optimized
  • Active Vibrant Open Source
  • 35+ Free Themes Premium Themes Theme Creator Tool


This tutorial is explained in the below Youtube Video.

Lets start with the implementation.
Create employee-medium.json-
        {"name":"Tester", "id":"emp001", "age":"30"}
Create the TypeScript file employeeservice.ts-
import {Injectable} from '@angular/core';
import {Http, Response} from '@angular/http';
import {Employee} from '../../app/cars/employee';

export class EmployeeService {

    constructor(private http: Http) {}

    getEmployeesMedium() {
        return this.http.get('app/resources/data/employee-medium.json')
                    .then(res => <Employee[]> res.json().data)
                    .then(data => { return data; });

Create the employee.js-
"use strict";

Create the

Create the TypeScript file employee.ts-
export interface employee {

Create the employeeservice.js-
"use strict";
var __decorate = (this && this.__decorate) || function (decorators, target, key, desc) {
    var c = arguments.length, r = c < 3 ? target : desc === null ? desc = Object.getOwnPropertyDescriptor(target, key) : desc, d;
    if (typeof Reflect === "object" && typeof Reflect.decorate === "function") r = Reflect.decorate(decorators, target, key, desc);
    else for (var i = decorators.length - 1; i >= 0; i--) if (d = decorators[i]) r = (c < 3 ? d(r) : c > 3 ? d(target, key, r) : d(target, key)) || r;
    return c > 3 && r && Object.defineProperty(target, key, r), r;
var __metadata = (this && this.__metadata) || function (k, v) {
    if (typeof Reflect === "object" && typeof Reflect.metadata === "function") return Reflect.metadata(k, v);
var core_1 = require('@angular/core');
var http_1 = require('@angular/http');
var EmployeeService = (function () {
    function EmployeeService(http) {
        this.http = http;
    EmployeeService.prototype.getEmployeesMedium = function () {
        return this.http.get('app/resources/data/employee-medium.json')
            .then(function (res) { return res.json().data; })
            .then(function (data) { return data; });
    EmployeeService = __decorate([
        __metadata('design:paramtypes', [http_1.Http])
    ], EmployeeService);
    return EmployeeService;
exports.EmployeeService = EmployeeService;

Create the app.html-
<div class="ContentSideSections">
    <div class="Content100 overHidden TextShadow">
        <span class="fontSize30 TextShadow orange mediumFont marginBottom20 dispBlock">PrimeNG Example</span>

<div class="ContentSideSections Implementation">
    <p-dataTable [value]="employees" selectionMode="single" [(selection)]="selectedEmployee" (onRowSelect)="onRowSelect($event)" [paginator]="true" [rows]="10" [responsive]="true">
        <header>TEST CRUD</header>
		 <p-column field="id" header="ID" [sortable]="true"></p-column>
       	 <p-column field="name" header="Name" [sortable]="true"></p-column>
		 <p-column field="age" header="Age" [sortable]="true"></p-column>
        <footer><div class="ui-helper-clearfix" style="width:100%"><button type="button" pButton icon="fa-plus" style="float:left" (click)="showDialogToAdd()" label="Add"></button></div></footer>

    <p-dialog header="Employee Details" [(visible)]="displayDialog" [responsive]="true" showEffect="fade" [modal]="true">
        <div class="ui-grid ui-grid-responsive ui-fluid ui-grid-pad" *ngIf="employee">
            <div class="ui-grid-row">
                <div class="ui-grid-col-4"><label for="color">ID</label></div>
                <div class="ui-grid-col-8"><input pInputText id="id" [(ngModel)]="" /></div>
			<div class="ui-grid-row">
                <div class="ui-grid-col-4"><label for="color">Name</label></div>
                <div class="ui-grid-col-8"><input pInputText id="name" [(ngModel)]="" /></div>
			 <div class="ui-grid-row">
                <div class="ui-grid-col-4"><label for="brand">Age</label></div>
                <div class="ui-grid-col-8"><input pInputText id="age" [(ngModel)]="employee.age" /></div>
            <div class="ui-dialog-buttonpane ui-widget-content ui-helper-clearfix">
                <button type="button" pButton icon="fa-close" (click)="delete()" label="Delete"></button>
                <button type="button" pButton icon="fa-check" (click)="save()" label="Save"></button>

Next use the commands-
npm install

npm start

and go to localhost:3000. We can see the table component created.

On clicking the add button a new employee record can be added.
