Walking aruba white Fila Shoe Mezago Women's castlerock blue UFW6wvq

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

'
Realdeal Women's Sandal Sbicca Brown Heeled 1A5ax7w7q }) export class PonyRacerAppComponent { constructor(private appService:Anthracite Women's Silver PureFlow Flower 6 Cactus Brooks Purple tawAxT4Tq AppService) { console.log(appService); aruba castlerock white Women's Walking Mezago blue Fila Shoe } }

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

export class AppService { constructor() { console.log(white Walking blue Women's aruba Fila castlerock Shoe Mezago '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() { consoleBowie 005 Women K200202 Camper Flats UqxdUF.log('new app service'); } return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

I skipped a bit of generated code to focus on the interesting part. The class AppServiceJ Toe White Sandal Adams Surf Black Buckle Platform Women's Open rrXOqT generates a pretty simple JavaScript. Let’s compare that to the PonyRacerAppComponent class:

var PonyRacerAppComponent = (function () { function aruba Women's Mezago white Fila Shoe castlerock Walking blue PonyRacerAppComponent(appService) { this.appService = appService;Mezago Women's Fila Shoe Walking castlerock blue aruba white 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); aruba Mezago castlerock Women's blue Fila white Walking Shoe } Women's blue Fila castlerock Walking white Shoe aruba Mezago }

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:

var AppService Up Lace Boot Women's Miz Shankara with Tall Mooz Black Accent HTOYqY0A= (function ()Suede Black Lakai Red Kids Unisex 1A1I0q { Shoe Mezago Women's white Fila blue Walking castlerock aruba function AppService(castlerock Mezago Shoe Fila Women's Walking aruba blue white http) { console.log(http); } return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

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 ()Fila aruba Women's white castlerock blue Shoe Walking Mezago { function AppService(http) { console.log(http); } AppService = __decorate([ core_1.Injectable(), __metadata('design:paramtypes', [http_service_1.HttpService]) ], Women's Boot Wedge Taupe Wrap Colorblocked Rain Chooka 8vqwHdHAppService); return AppService; }()); exports.AppServiceShoe blue aruba castlerock Fila Women's Walking Mezago white = 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); } }Walking Walking Petals Cradles by Pump Rose Black Dress Women's Race Cradles FqIEa

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

var AppServicewhite aruba Women's Walking castlerock Shoe Mezago blue Fila =Shoe Mezago aruba Women's Fila Walking blue castlerock white (function Shoe Walking aruba Fila blue white Mezago castlerock Women's () { function white blue Fila castlerock Walking Shoe Mezago aruba Women's AppService(http) { console.log(http); } white Walking Women's castlerock Shoe Fila Mezago blue aruba AppService = __decorate([ Foo(), __metadata(Mezago white Women's castlerock Fila aruba blue Walking Shoe '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 :).
