4.0 out of 5 stars The book covers all aspects of AngularJS Directives and the author walks through examples that really make it easy to understand, 19 Aug 2014
This review is from: Mastering AngularJS Directives (Kindle Edition)
This is a very technical book and one which I believe is aimed at intermediary level of skills when using AngularJS. There is no introduction in to Angular JS and jumps straight into AngularJS Directives. If you are new to AngularJS then put this on your must read list as it will be required once you have an understanding of the basics of AngularJS.

The book covers all aspects of AngularJS Directives and the author walks through examples that really make it easy to understand with real world scenarios.
So far I have only read the first four chapters and the book goes into great detail on how to use directives for a particular scenario.
The book starts with a high level introduction to directives, what they are and how they are created, and covers things like Scope, Controllers and ControllerAs, Require, Restrict to name a few. Each section describes how to set up the directive and an example is included to help with the explanation.
The second chapter covers building a Stopwatch directive, this chapter also introduces the reader to testing and to write in a BDD style format. Building the tests first and then writing just enough code so the test passes.
The third chapter covers External Javascript (JS) libraries and demonstrates how and when to use the digest and apply. So that changes in the external (JS) files will be reflected in Angular JS when an event has happened in one of the external (JS) files.
Once I complete the book I will update this review covering the remaining chapters. But as an early review I would certainly recommend this book as it provides great insight into the world of AngularJS Directives. Directives can be tricky to fully understand at first but once you have a good understanding of the basics then you realise just how powerful Directives can be.
