Setup Angular Environment

You can use Angular CLI to setup your Angular applications.
To install Angular CLI use the following command.

npm install -g @angular/cli

Create an Angular Application

Start a new Angular application using below Angular CLI command.

ng new my-app
cd my-app

Installing Syncfusion Card package

Syncfusion packages are distributed in npm as @syncfusion scoped packages. You can get all the Angular Syncfusion package from npm link.

Currently, Syncfusion provides two types of package structures for Angular components,

  1. Ivy library distribution package format
  2. Angular compatibility compiler(Angular’s legacy compilation and rendering pipeline) package.

Ivy library distribution package

Syncfusion Angular packages(>=20.2.36) has been moved to the Ivy distribution to support the Angular Ivy rendering engine and the package are compatible with Angular version 12 and above. To download the package use the below command.

Add @syncfusion/ej2-angular-layouts package to the application.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-layouts --save

Angular compatibility compiled package(ngcc)

For Angular version below 12, you can use the legacy (ngcc) package of the Syncfusion Angular components. To download the ngcc package use the below.

Add @syncfusion/ej2-angular-layouts@ngcc package to the application.

npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-layouts@ngcc --save

To mention the ngcc package in the package.json file, add the suffix -ngcc with the package version as below.


Note: If the ngcc tag is not specified while installing the package, the Ivy Library Package will be installed and this package will throw a warning.

Adding CSS reference

The following CSS files are available in ../node_modules/@syncfusion package folder.
This can be referenced in [src/styles.css] using following code.

@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';  
@import '../node_modules/@syncfusion/ej2-layouts/styles/material.css';

Adding a simple Card

  • Add the HTML div element with e-card class into your index.html.


        <div class = "e-card">
          Sample Card

Adding a header to the card

You can create cards with a header in a specific structure. For adding header you need to create div element and add e-card-header class.

  • You can include heading inside the card header by adding an div element with e-card-header-caption class, and also content will be added by adding element with e-card-content. For detailed information, refer to the Header and Content.
    <div class = "e-card">                    --> Root Element
        <div class="e-card-header">           --> Root Header Element
            <div class="e-card-header-caption">    --> Root Heading Element
                <div class="e-card-header-title"></div>   --> Heading Title Element
            <div class="e-card-content"></div>         --> Card content Element
  • Now, run the application in the browser using the following command.
npm start

Output will be as follows:

import { Component, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';

    selector: 'app-container',
    template: `
        <div tabindex="0" class="e-card" id="basic">
            <div class="e-card-header">
                <div class="e-card-header-caption">
                    <div class="e-card-title">Advanced UWP</div>
            <div class="e-card-content">
