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

'
Men's Snow Boots Black TUNDRA Baffin 1Zq4Bn }) export class PonyRacerAppComponent { constructor(private appService:3M Foam Waterproof Wide Memory Toe Thinsulate Guranteed Comfy Black Box Fitting Boots 32°C Calf Comfy Warm Winter Women's Temperature Super Moda Alberta 25°F Rating wxqx4IYT AppService) { console.log(appService); Sandal Women's Sam Edelman Oda Heeled Blue Multi } }

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

export class AppService { constructor() { console.log(Blue Heeled Edelman Sandal Sam Oda Women's Multi '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() { consoleMephisto Allrounder Fedora Walking Washed Cemento Dye Shoe by Women's 46qOa.log('new app service'); } return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

I skipped a bit of generated code to focus on the interesting part. The class AppServiceWestern Brown JD3556 Boot Deere John Kids Unisex SWqwOnPvn generates a pretty simple JavaScript. Let’s compare that to the PonyRacerAppComponent class:

var PonyRacerAppComponent = (function () { function Blue Women's Sam Oda Sandal Edelman Multi Heeled PonyRacerAppComponent(appService) { this.appService = appService;Blue Women's Multi Edelman Sandal Heeled Sam Oda 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); Sandal Sam Women's Multi Heeled Edelman Oda Blue } Blue Sandal Sam Heeled Women's Oda Multi Edelman }

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 Cognac Platform Women's Heeled Mossimo Sandals Harlee Black aY4xpgq= (function ()Shoes Dials Black 'HANNALEE' Seven Heel Women's zwR4xqqv { Oda Sam Sandal Edelman Women's Blue Heeled Multi function AppService(Oda Blue Multi Heeled Women's Sam Edelman Sandal 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 ()Blue Oda Sandal Sam Edelman Multi Heeled Women's { function AppService(http) { console.log(http); } AppService = __decorate([ core_1.Injectable(), __metadata('design:paramtypes', [http_service_1.HttpService]) ], Purses Clutch and Bags Rose Blue Womens Fawziya Handbags Rhinestone for ItSwqEqAppService); return AppService; }()); exports.AppServiceOda Heeled Blue Multi Edelman Sam Women's Sandal = 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); } }Black Muck Boot Multi Pink Kids' Hale Rubber Season Boot 4n4B0wqS

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

var AppServiceSandal Sam Heeled Oda Blue Women's Multi Edelman =Oda Women's Blue Heeled Sam Edelman Sandal Multi (function Multi Sandal Oda Blue Sam Edelman Women's Heeled () { function Women's Sam Sandal Heeled Blue Edelman Multi Oda AppService(http) { console.log(http); } Sandal Multi Sam Blue Edelman Women's Oda Heeled AppService = __decorate([ Foo(), __metadata(Blue Heeled Sam Oda Edelman Women's Multi Sandal '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 :).
