Next js experiment

Tried out an app with Next js with the help of an YouTube tutorial video. The app contains basic features like loading data from external api, single level routing, nested routing, layout templates, Hyperlink navigations, Card styles. Here is an outcome. https://next-experiment-six.vercel.app

Thanks @traversymedia

This video is really helpful. https://youtube.com/watch?v=mTz0GXj8NN0&ab_channel=TraversyMedia…

I shall try the Udemy course as well shortly.

Deployed the source in vercel by following the official docs steps. Live: https://next-experiment-six.vercel.app

Its quick and straight forward. I’m yet to figure out – how to trigger the build & deployment in vercel on each commit or merge.

Planning to add footer and some real-time data + images to see on how image rendering & optimisations happening.

Angular – Use of access modifier while injection of service

This is a small writing about the interesting error I have faced recently while debugging an angular app.

The following error shows up in browser console

đź’ˇ Error: can’t access property “run”, this.appService is undefined

this is a generic error shows up when we add one of the service as DI in our component.

The error is can’t access property or function, because particular service is undefined.

In my case, I have a function called run() which is present in appService

this.appService.run();

And the error showing in console is telling us that the code is trying to call undefined service’s function

undefined.run()

This is what the error telling to us.

You can use the following stackblitz link to try out and reproduce the issue

https://stackblitz.com/edit/angular-service-nzkubh?file=app%2Fhello.component.ts

In the below example, I have called particular function in the service.

export class HelloComponent {
  @Input() name: string;

  constructor(
    appService: AppService,
    private helloService: HelloService
  ) {
    this.appService.run();
    this.helloService.run();
  }
}

Issue

What was the issue?

From the above snippet, you could have noticed that I haven’t mentioned the access specifier of the appService.

This is why it is throwing issue in out console.

The issue resolved by setting up the access specifier of the appService in the constructor.

export class HelloComponent {
  @Input() name: string;

  constructor(
    **private** appService: AppService,
    private helloService: HelloService
  ) {
    this.appService.run();
    this.helloService.run();
  }
}

Explanation

When we prefix a constructor parameter with an access modifier, it is getting promoted as class property in Typescript.

Without any access modifier prefix the constructor parameter is just the method parameter. We should manually assign it to declared class property from the constructor.

Method #1

In the following snippet, we have added a class property and assigned the the parameter and used it later on.

export class HelloComponent {
  @Input() name: string;
  private _appService: AppService;

  constructor(appService: AppService) {
    this._appService = appService;
    this._appService.run();
  }
}

Method #2

In the following snippet, I have declared a class property name same as parameter name and used it later on.

export class HelloComponent {
  @Input() name: string;
  private appService: AppService;

  constructor(appService: AppService) {
    this.appService = appService;
    this.appService.run();
  }
}

Method #3

In the following snippet, I have added the constructor parameter with access modifier. Now no need to declare separate class property.

export class HelloComponent {
  @Input() name: string;

  constructor(private appService: AppService) {
    this.appService = appService;
    this.appService.run();
  }
}

Hope the above explanation is simple and helpful.

Cheers!
