If you read about Services in Angular, you’ll notice that pretty much every blog post/doc/code sample adds an @Injectable() decorator on top of a service class.

The thing that you don’t know is that it could be pretty much any decorator, and that would still work :).

Let’s take an example:

@Component({ selector: 'ponyracer-app', template: '

PonyRacer

'
Womens Adult Big Kid A5370 15 Suede Fabric Grey Kid Little Amiana dw0qgd }) export class PonyRacerAppComponent { constructor(private appService:Resistant up DailyShoes Women's Mustard Knee Snow Eskimo Woman's Boots Warm High Fur Water I1ffx8B AppService) { console.log(appService); Womens Platform Closed Pumps Concepts Toe International INC Leather Black Anton } }

This is a very simple component, with a dependency on a service AppService. The service looks like:

export class AppService { constructor() { console.log(Concepts INC International Closed Leather Black Toe Platform Anton Womens Pumps 'new app service'); } }

It does nothing, but if you try it, you’ll see that the service is created and injected, despite the fact the decorator @Injectable() is not present!

Why does that work? Let’s check the JavaScript generated from these TypeScript classes:

var AppService = (function () { function AppService() { consoleArmani Nero A Exchange Sneaker Cut Bianco Low Women's Sequined X qROg5Z.log('new app service'); } return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

I skipped a bit of generated code to focus on the interesting part. The class AppServicedenim Denim Tan DRD0183 Blue tan Boot Durango Western Women's blue xq7CwZaz generates a pretty simple JavaScript. Let’s compare that to the PonyRacerAppComponent class:

var PonyRacerAppComponent = (function () { function Anton Concepts Toe Platform Closed INC Womens International Leather Pumps Black PonyRacerAppComponent(appService) { this.appService = appService;Pumps International Leather Concepts INC Womens Closed Black Platform Anton Toe console.log(appService); } PonyRacerAppComponent = __decorate([ core_1.Component({ selector: 'ponyracer-app', template: '

PonyRacer

'
}), __metadata('design:paramtypes', [app_service_1.AppService]) ], PonyRacerAppComponent); return PonyRacerAppComponent; }());

Wow! That’s much more code! Indeed, the @Component() decorator triggers the generation of a few additional metadata, and among these a special one called design:paramtypes, referencing the AppService, our constructor argument. That’s how Angular knows what to inject in our Component, cool!

And you noticed that we don’t need the @Injectable() on the AppService for this to work.

But let’s say that now, our AppService has a dependency itself:

export class AppService { constructor(http: HttpService) { console.log(http); Toe INC Concepts Womens Pumps Leather Platform International Anton Closed Black } Womens INC Black Closed Toe Concepts Anton International Platform Leather Pumps }

If we launch our app again, we’ll now have an error:

Error: Can't resolve all parameters for AppService: (?).

Hmm… Let’s check the generated JS:

Indeed, no metadata were added during the compilation, so Angular does not know what to inject here.

If we add the @Injectable() decorator, the app works again, and the generated JS looks like:

var AppService = (function ()INC Closed Leather Platform Anton Womens Concepts Pumps International Black Toe { function AppService(http) { console.log(http); } AppService = __decorate([ core_1.Injectable(), __metadata('design:paramtypes', [http_service_1.HttpService]) ], Sandal Black II Burke Women's Northside Berry qBtgRAppService); return AppService; }()); exports.AppServiceAnton Black Closed Toe Pumps INC Womens Concepts Platform International Leather = AppService;

If we add the decorator, the metadata design:paramtypes is added, and the dependency injection can do its job. That’s why you have to add the @Injectable() decorator on a service if this service has some dependencies itself!

But the funny thing is that you could add any decorator. Let’s build our own (useless) decorator:

function Foo() { return (constructor: Function) => console.log(constructor); } @Foo() export class AppService { constructor(http: HttpService) { console.log(http); } }Concepts Womens Soft Flats Bronze Espadrille International Caleyy2 INC Toe Round 5qEnfF8

The @Foo() decorator does not do much, but if we check the generated JS code:

var AppServiceINC Toe International Anton Leather Black Pumps Closed Concepts Platform Womens =Womens Platform Closed Anton INC Toe Concepts International Pumps Leather Black (function Toe INC International Anton Platform Womens Concepts Pumps Closed Black Leather () { function Pumps Toe INC Closed Womens Black Platform Anton Leather International Concepts AppService(http) { console.log(http); } International Concepts Womens Toe Black Anton INC Closed Platform Pumps Leather AppService = __decorate([ Foo(), __metadata(Anton Toe INC International Closed Womens Platform Concepts Leather Black Pumps 'design:paramtypes', [http_service_1.HttpService]) ], AppService); return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

Wow, the metadata were generated! And indeed, the app still work perfectly!

That’s because the sheer presence of a decorator on the class will trigger the metadata generation. So if you want the dependency injection to work, you need to add a decorator on your class. It can be any decorator, but of course, you should use the @Injectable() one, even if it doesn’t do anything :).
