#4 🧭Add Navigation

Add Navigation Bar

We will create a new navigation bar component by making a right-click on the folder 📁components. Navigate to 'Angular Generator' and select 'Component' and provide the name ‘nav-bar’.

Open src/app/components/nav-bar/nav-bar.component.html and replace what is there with the following code.

<mat-toolbar class="nav-bar mat-elevation-z2"></mat-toolbar>

We will add the styling for nav bar 📝src/app/components/nav-bar/nav-bar.component.scss as shown below

.nav-bar {
  background-color: #1565C0;
  color: #FFFFFF;
  position: fixed;
  top: 0;
  z-index: 99;
button:focus {
  outline: none;
  border: 0;

Create the Home Page

We will create another component named HomeComponent. Let’s make a right-click on the folder 📁components. Navigate to 'Angular Generator', select 'Component' and provide the name ‘home’.

For now we will not add any code to HomeComponent. We will revisit this component in a later part of this workshop.

Add Router module

We will add the RouterModule into 📝src/app/app.module.ts as shown below.

    import { RouterModule } from '@angular/router';

      imports: [
          { path: '', component: HomeComponent, pathMatch: 'full' },
          { path: '**', component: HomeComponent }

Update the AppComponent

Open 📝src/app/app.component.html and replace the content of the file with the following code.

<div class="container">

Add the following styles to 📝src/styles.scss:

body {
    background-color: #fafafa;

.container {
    padding-top: 60px;
