Tutorial: How to redirect in Angular2

In this tutorial I’m going to give you a very simple example of how to navigate between components on an Angular2 application, but before we begin there are some configurations we have to do.

We’re going to use 2 components in this example: Component1 and Component2, to be able to redirect and navigate from one to the other we’re going to use the RouterModule, and for that module to work we have to create a file called app.routing.ts:

import { ModuleWithProviders } from '@angular/core';
import { Routes, RouterModule } from '@angular/router';
import { Component1 } from './component1.component';
import { Component2 } from './component2.component';
const appRoutes: Routes = [
  { path: 'component1', component: Component1 },
  { path: 'component2', component: Component2 }
export const appRoutingProviders: any[] = [];
export const routing: ModuleWithProviders = RouterModule.forRoot(appRoutes);

This is the file where we can define the routes, it allows us to specify a path for each of our components, as you can see in the code I’ve defined the paths /component1 and /component2 which will allow me to redirect to both my components.

Next we have to import the routing configuration on the app.module.ts as follows:

import { NgModule }      from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { AppComponent }   from './app.component';
import { routing, appRoutingProviders }  from './app.routing';
import { Component1 } from './component1.component';
import { Component2 } from './component2.component';
  imports:      [ BrowserModule, routing ],
  declarations: [ AppComponent, Component1, Component2],
  providers:    [appRoutingProviders],
  bootstrap:    [ AppComponent ]
export class AppModule { }

Perfect! We’re done with the configurations, now you can redirect by passing the path to the routerLink attribute of a regular link:

<a routerLink="/component1" >Component 1</a>
<a routerLink="/component2" >Component 2</a>

This will have the same effect as typing http://localhost:3000/component1 on the browser.

    I want to redirect to another component if login credentials are correct else redirect to same page.

    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { Hero }    from './hero';
    import { Routes, RouterModule,RouterConfig } from '@angular/router';
    import { HomeComponent } from 'app/home.component';
      { path: '/home',  component: HomeComponent,  name: 'home' }
      selector: 'login-form',
      templateUrl: 'app/login-form.component.html'
      providers: [ROUTER_PROVIDERS]
    export class AppComponent {
    active = true;
    model = new Hero('', '');
        var userid = localStorage.getItem('name');
        var password = localStorage.getItem('password');
        if((userid == model.name1) &amp;&amp; (password == model.password1)) {
            alert("Welcome User");
        else {
            model.name1 = '';
            model.password1 = '';
            alert("You are not valid User");
      } }

    This is my code, its not working properly
