Create front-end app for space-XYZ cargo booking system.

This is multi-part post and this is 2 or 3 part.

Our base design would be like space-x website with header, background image and some text, we will create a full functional strapi server from where all data comes eventually. For now we will create dummy text and dummy image placeholder, later we will integrate with API from strapi.

Create new empty folder and name it space-xyz then cd into it, open terminal window I will be using iTerm2 for my terminal window and run below command it will generate new angular project.

npx -p  @angular/[email protected] ng new space-xyz

Open frontend project in your favorite code editor, I will be using visual studio code (vscode) its super fast and build on node stack too.

We will generate header component user angular CLI command, It will be very simple header to hold our navigation and logo for our application.

npx ng generate component header 
? Would you like to share anonymous usage data about this project with the Angular Team at
Google under Google’s Privacy Policy at For more
details and how to change this setting, see Yes

Thank you for sharing anonymous usage data. Would you change your mind, the following
command will disable this feature entirely:

    ng analytics project off

CREATE src/app/header/header.component.spec.ts (626 bytes)
CREATE src/app/header/header.component.ts (276 bytes)
UPDATE src/app/app.module.ts (475 bytes)

Insider header component “header/header.component.html

We will use our server to provide all the data for now we will just use as place holder.

<div class="header-holder">
  <div class="logo">
  <div class="menu">
        <a routerLink="/first-component" routerLinkActive="active">link 1</a>
        <a routerLink="/first-component" routerLinkActive="active">link 2</a>
        <a routerLink="/first-component" routerLinkActive="active">link 3</a>
        <a routerLink="/first-component" routerLinkActive="active">link 4</a>
        <a routerLink="/first-component" routerLinkActive="active">link 5</a>

Let’s create body component to hold some text and other data.

npx ng generate component body 

Insider body component “body/body.component.html

<div class="body-holder">
  <h1>Some Name comes form server</h1>
  <p>Some text comes from server</p>
  <a href="">Book it now</a>

Insider body component “body/body.component.scss

// body/body.component.scss

.body-holder {
  display: flex;
  align-items: center;
  flex-direction: column;
  margin-top: 15%;

  h1 {
    font-size: 60px;
    text-transform: uppercase;
    color: #fff;

  p {
    color: #fff;
    text-transform: uppercase;
  a {
    text-decoration: none;
    background: green;
    border: 1px solid #037203;
    color: #fff;
    padding: 20px;
    font-size: 16px;
    text-transform: uppercase;

Update routing “app-routing.module.ts” file with below code.

// app-routing.module.ts

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { Routes, RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
import { BodyComponent } from './body/body.component';

const routes: Routes = [
    path: ':id',
    component: BodyComponent,
    path: '',
    component: BodyComponent,

  imports: [RouterModule.forRoot(routes)],
  exports: [RouterModule],
export class AppRoutingModule {}

Update app component “app.component.html” file and “app.component.ts” with below code. Later we will get background image from API response, for now we are hardcoding backgroundImage path


      'url(' + backgroundImage + ') #000 no-repeat center bottom / contain'
  <div class="container">
// app.component.ts

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.scss'],
export class AppComponent {
  title = 'space-xyz';
  backgroundImage = null;

  constructor() {
    this.backgroundImage = '../../assets/f9_feature.webp';

And last update “app.module.ts” to reflect those changes.


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { AppRoutingModule } from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { HeaderComponent } from './header/header.component';
import { BodyComponent } from './body/body.component';

  declarations: [AppComponent, HeaderComponent, BodyComponent],
  imports: [BrowserModule, AppRoutingModule],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent],
export class AppModule {}

Finally run angular application to view our frontend app. You will be able to see something like below screen shot.

For some reason if you miss any step you can check link for final code.

Next step is to create Strapi system, let’s go to backend part. 🙂
