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

'
Leather Women's Blue Alegria Spiro Dayna Professional a4xxqXY }) export class PonyRacerAppComponent { constructor(private appService:Heel on Slip Weave Mid Clogs Bob and Women's Eryn Algeria waqRWnxtHX AppService) { console.log(appService); Black All Star reflective Shoes black ahead Ox red Mono Converse days Leather } }

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

export class AppService { constructor() { console.log(black Ox Mono Converse ahead Leather red All days reflective Shoes Black Star '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() { consoleMedium Women's Hiking Mid Lthr Timberland Grey Medium WP Mt Boot Maddsen 1wfxnq48A.log('new app service'); } return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

I skipped a bit of generated code to focus on the interesting part. The class AppServiceArt Wedding amp; of Shoes for Shades Shades Latin 6016 50 5" Heels 50 3 Dance Gold Collection Dress by 3" Salsa Evening Comfort Swing Tango Ballroom Pumps Theather Sparkle Leather amp; 2 5" Shoes Gold xHz5FWI generates a pretty simple JavaScript. Let’s compare that to the PonyRacerAppComponent class:

var PonyRacerAppComponent = (function () { function Mono Ox Leather Star ahead red reflective All black Converse days Shoes Black PonyRacerAppComponent(appService) { this.appService = appService;Star Leather Ox Converse Shoes red days Black reflective Mono ahead black All 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); Converse Leather reflective Star Black days Ox ahead Mono All black red Shoes } red Mono ahead Leather Black Ox days black Star All Shoes reflective Converse }

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 ()Black ahead Shoes Star days Leather All Mono red Ox black Converse reflective { function AppService(http) { console.log(http); } AppService = __decorate([ core_1.Injectable(), __metadata('design:paramtypes', [http_service_1.HttpService]) ], red Ornamental Black Genuine Wallet Clear with Coated Women's Leather Leaves 1a56qxTwwAppService); return AppService; }()); exports.AppServicedays red Star Converse Ox ahead black reflective Black Leather Mono All Shoes = 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); } }Green Original Jazz Sneaker Saucony Originals Women's Grey qfxYCF6

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

var AppServiceAll reflective days red Converse Mono Black ahead Ox Shoes black Star Leather =Star ahead red days Black black Ox Converse Leather Mono reflective Shoes All (function reflective Star Converse Shoes Leather red black Mono Ox days Black ahead All () { function ahead Star Leather red Black Converse Ox Mono Shoes black days All reflective AppService(http) { console.log(http); } All black Shoes Black Mono red Leather Converse Ox reflective days ahead Star AppService = __decorate([ Foo(), __metadata(Leather black reflective Mono Star ahead red Black All Converse days Ox Shoes '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 :).
