Mastering Angular 12 Routing for Efficient Single-Page Application Development


With Google’s Angular framework, developers can create dynamic single-page applications (SPAs) quickly and effectively. The routing system of Angular is one of its primary features, which enables developers to switch between views with ease. To improve your comprehension, we’ll go into dynamic routing, review the foundations of Angular 12 routing, and answer some often-asked questions in this blog article.


Angular is a comprehensive and robust framework developed by Google, empowers developers to build dynamic single-page applications (SPAs) efficiently. One of Angular’s key features is its routing mechanism, allowing developers to navigate seamlessly between different views.

Angular 12 Routing Fundamentals

  • Setting Up Routes

Angular applications define routes using the RouterModule and its forRoot method. In your main application module, typically named app.module.ts, import the necessary modules:

  •  Define your routes as an array of Route objects:
  • Integrating Router Module

Next, integrate the RouterModule into your application by importing and configuring it within the imports array of the @NgModule decorator:

  • Displaying Views with Router Outlet

To display the routed components, use the <router-outlet></router-outlet> directive in your main template (usually app.component.html):

  • Navigating Between Routes

Angular provides multiple ways to navigate between routes:

Imperative Navigation:

In your component, use the Router service to navigate programmatically:

Declarative Navigation:

Use the routerLink directive in your templates for declarative navigation:

Dynamic Routing

Dynamic routing in Angular allows for more flexible and data-driven navigation. This is particularly useful when loading components based on dynamic data or parameters.

Configuring Dynamic Routes

Dynamic routes involve using route parameters to influence the displayed content. Modify your routes to include the parameters:

In this example, the :id in the route indicates a parameter that can be passed when navigating to the ‘about’ route.

Accessing Route Parameters

To access route parameters, inject the ActivatedRoute service in your component:

Dynamically Loading Components

With dynamic routing, you can dynamically load components based on route parameters. In the example above, the AboutDetailComponent can use the route parameter to fetch specific data or content.


Angular 12 routing is a powerful feature that enables developers to create sophisticated and dynamic SPAs. Mastering both the fundamentals and dynamic aspects of routing opens up endless possibilities for crafting engaging user experiences.

1. What is the purpose of the `RouterModule.forRoot` method?

ANS: – The forRoot method configures the router with the provided routes. It should be called only once in the main application module. The forRoot method sets up the router with initial navigation based on the current browser URL.

2. How can I navigate programmatically in Angular 12?

ANS: – Use the Router service and its navigate method for imperative navigation. For example, this.router.navigate([‘/about’]); will navigate to the ‘about’ route.

3. Can I have multiple `router-outlet` directives in my application?

ANS: – Yes, you can. Multiple router-outlet directives allow you to have named outlets, enabling the display of different components in different parts of your application.
