Install Material and Use in Angular

This Tutorial for installing and setting up Material Design with Angular. Material Design is a design system developed by Google that provides a set of guidelines for creating visually pleasing and user-friendly interfaces for web and mobile applications. Angular is a JavaScript framework for building single-page applications. By combining these two tools, you can create modern and visually appealing web applications with ease.

This tutorial will walk you through the steps of installing and configuring Material Design and Angular, including installing the required dependencies and importing the necessary modules. It will also provide examples and best practices for using Material Design components within an Angular application. Whether you are new to Material Design or Angular, or just need a refresher on the setup process, this tutorial will provide the information you need to get started.

To use Angular Material in an Angular component, you will need to install Angular Material and include it in your project. There are two ways to do this:

  1. Install Angular Material using npm: If you have npm installed on your system, you can install Angular Material by running the following command:
npm install @angular/material @angular/cdk 

This will install the Angular Material package and its dependencies, and add them to your project's dependencies.

  1. Download Angular Material and include it in your project manually: Alternatively, you can download the Angular Material files from the Angular Material website and include them in your project manually. To do this, download the Angular Material CSS and JavaScript files and place them in your project's "src" directory.

Once Angular Material is installed and included in your project, you can use it in your Angular component by adding the Angular Material components to the component's template.

Here's an example of how you can use Angular Material in an Angular component:

<button mat-button>Click me!</button> 

This will create a button using the Angular Material "mat-button" component.

You can also use Angular directives in your template to apply Angular Material styles based on component properties. For example:

<mat-checkbox [(ngModel)]="isChecked">Check me</mat-checkbox> 

This will create a checkbox using the Angular Material "mat-checkbox" component, and bind the value of the isChecked property to the checkbox using the ngModel directive.
