Handling Dependencies in Angular Plugins

Explain how to manage dependencies within an Angular plugin, ensuring that dependent services or modules are loaded and available.
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';
import { MyPluginComponent } from './my-plugin.component';
import { DependencyService } from './dependency.service';

  declarations: [MyPluginComponent],
  imports: [CommonModule],
  providers: [DependencyService],
  exports: [MyPluginComponent]
export class MyPluginModule { }
Defines an Angular module named MyPluginModule. It imports necessary Angular modules like CommonModule which your component might depend on. It declares the MyPluginComponent and provides the DependencyService which the component may inject.
import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';

  providedIn: 'root' // Service will be a singleton and available application-wide
export class DependencyService {
  // Define methods and properties of your service
Creates an Angular service using the Injectable decorator. The providedIn: 'root' property ensures that this service is available throughout the application, making it a singleton.
import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { DependencyService } from './dependency.service';

  selector: 'app-my-plugin',
  templateUrl: './my-plugin.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./my-plugin.component.css']
export class MyPluginComponent implements OnInit {

  constructor(private dependency: DependencyService) { }

  ngOnInit(): void {
    // Use the dependency service in the component
Defines an Angular component with the selector 'app-my-plugin' and links it to its template and styles. The DependencyService is injected through the constructor, which allows the component to use its methods and properties within its lifecycle, particularly within the ngOnInit method.
