      // paths serve as alias
      'npm:': 'node_modules/',
      "syncfusion:": "node_modules/@syncfusion/", // syncfusion alias

    },
    // map tells the System loader where to look for things

To render the Sidebar component, need to import Sidebar and its dependent component’s styles as given below in style.css.

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

Note: If you want to refer the combined component styles, please make use of our CRG (Custom Resource Generator) in your application.

Create a simple Sidebar

Refer the following code to include the Sidebar in application .

  • Create an Angular component with Sidebar. Add the following sidebar template in component template of app.component.ts
<ejs-sidebar id="default-sidebar" >
    <div class="title"> Sidebar content</div>
</ejs-sidebar>
<div>
    <div class="title">Main content</div>
    <div class="sub-title">
        Content goes here.
    </div>
</div>
  • Create an Angular module and include the above Sidebar component.
  • In the module, declare the Component and Directives required to render the Sidebar.
  • Bootstrap the application with the above module.

Refer to the following snippet to import the sidebar module in app.module.ts from the @syncfusion/ej2-angular-navigations.

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { SidebarModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-navigations';

@NgModule({
    imports: [SidebarModule, BrowserModule],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

systemjs.config.js file should be configured as described in the Installation and configuration section.
