Component Style Encapsulation and CSS Best Practices

Demonstrate how to use Angular's style encapsulation along with best CSS practices for maintainable styling.
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

  selector: 'app-example',
  templateUrl: './example.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./example.component.css'],
  // Use encapsulation property to define the style encapsulation strategy
  encapsulation: ViewEncapsulation.Emulated // This is the default and emulates Shadow DOM
export class ExampleComponent {
  // Component logic goes here
This code snippet is an Angular component with encapsulated CSS. The styles defined in 'example.component.css' will only apply to 'app-example' and won't affect other components due to Angular's style encapsulation.
/* example.component.css */

/* Use BEM naming convention for class names */
.example__element {
  /* Base styles for the element */

.example__element--modifier {
  /* Modification based on a different state or variation */
This CSS snippet follows BEM (Block Element Modifier) naming convention, which helps in maintaining a scalable and easy-to-understand stylesheet. This convention avoids conflicts and increases readability.
  /* ...
    Other component metadata
  ... */
  styles: [
      :host {
        display: block;

      .internal-class {
        color: blue;
export class InlineStyleComponent {
  // Component logic for a component with inline styles
This code demonstrates how to use inline styles in an Angular component. The ':host' pseudo-class selector is used to style the component host element. This approach is useful for small and component-specific styles.
