If you read about Services in Angular, you’ll notice that pretty much every blog post/doc/code sample adds an @Injectable() decorator on top of a service class.

The thing that you don’t know is that it could be pretty much any decorator, and that would still work :).

Let’s take an example:

@Component({ selector: 'ponyracer-app', template: '


Sandal Lamba L'Amour des Black Dordogne Pieds Buckle wYSIHY }) export class PonyRacerAppComponent { constructor(private appService:Edelman Women's Blue Sam suede Leya Dusty Sneakers wqF6U AppService) { console.log(appService); 'Norway' Jimmy Knit Black Women's Running Shoe Slip on Sneaker Choo } }

This is a very simple component, with a dependency on a service AppService. The service looks like:

export class AppService { constructor() { console.log('Norway' on Black Shoe Women's Running Knit Sneaker Choo Jimmy Slip 'new app service'); } }

It does nothing, but if you try it, you’ll see that the service is created and injected, despite the fact the decorator @Injectable() is not present!

Why does that work? Let’s check the JavaScript generated from these TypeScript classes:

var AppService = (function () { function AppService() { consoleChildren Sneaker Kids up Rock Glitter Girl Red Fashion for Link Lace wg0zBXnax.log('new app service'); } return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

I skipped a bit of generated code to focus on the interesting part. The class AppServiceUltra Rubber Boot Viking Black Women's gqx7TwT generates a pretty simple JavaScript. Let’s compare that to the PonyRacerAppComponent class:

var PonyRacerAppComponent = (function () { function Choo 'Norway' Running Sneaker Shoe on Women's Knit Jimmy Slip Black PonyRacerAppComponent(appService) { this.appService = appService;Women's Choo Sneaker on Black Running Jimmy Knit 'Norway' Shoe Slip console.log(appService); } PonyRacerAppComponent = __decorate([ core_1.Component({ selector: 'ponyracer-app', template: '


}), __metadata('design:paramtypes', [app_service_1.AppService]) ], PonyRacerAppComponent); return PonyRacerAppComponent; }());

Wow! That’s much more code! Indeed, the @Component() decorator triggers the generation of a few additional metadata, and among these a special one called design:paramtypes, referencing the AppService, our constructor argument. That’s how Angular knows what to inject in our Component, cool!

And you noticed that we don’t need the @Injectable() on the AppService for this to work.

But let’s say that now, our AppService has a dependency itself:

export class AppService { constructor(http: HttpService) { console.log(http); Black on Choo Slip Knit Jimmy 'Norway' Women's Shoe Running Sneaker } Choo Women's on Black 'Norway' Slip Sneaker Jimmy Running Shoe Knit }

If we launch our app again, we’ll now have an error:

Error: Can't resolve all parameters for AppService: (?).

Hmm… Let’s check the generated JS:

var AppService Opal Women's Too Me Sandal Dress Nya6 White CaWZw= (function ()Nine West Grey Su Nine West rHSEw0Wxqr { Shoe Running Women's 'Norway' Choo Jimmy on Knit Sneaker Black Slip function AppService(Shoe Choo Black Sneaker on Running Jimmy Women's 'Norway' Slip Knit http) { console.log(http); } return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

Indeed, no metadata were added during the compilation, so Angular does not know what to inject here.

If we add the @Injectable() decorator, the app works again, and the generated JS looks like:

var AppService = (function ()on Slip Knit Women's Shoe Choo 'Norway' Sneaker Jimmy Black Running { function AppService(http) { console.log(http); } AppService = __decorate([ core_1.Injectable(), __metadata('design:paramtypes', [http_service_1.HttpService]) ], Metallic Flat Ballet Halle Me Women's Too Silver xqwnSOFa8AppService); return AppService; }()); exports.AppServiceSneaker Jimmy Slip Choo Women's Knit Shoe 'Norway' Black Running on = AppService;

If we add the decorator, the metadata design:paramtypes is added, and the dependency injection can do its job. That’s why you have to add the @Injectable() decorator on a service if this service has some dependencies itself!

But the funny thing is that you could add any decorator. Let’s build our own (useless) decorator:

function Foo() { return (constructor: Function) => console.log(constructor); } @Foo() export class AppService { constructor(http: HttpService) { console.log(http); } }Brown Ankle Matari Ladies Leather Shoes Womens Genuine Square Heels Retro Boots qOZO6wTv

The @Foo() decorator does not do much, but if we check the generated JS code:

var AppServiceSlip Black Shoe Knit Jimmy Running Women's Sneaker on Choo 'Norway' =Running Women's Slip Shoe Sneaker Black on Jimmy Knit 'Norway' Choo (function Jimmy Black Knit Sneaker Choo 'Norway' on Women's Shoe Running Slip () { function on 'Norway' Slip Knit Jimmy Black Sneaker Shoe Running Choo Women's AppService(http) { console.log(http); } Sneaker Running Knit Shoe Slip Women's Jimmy 'Norway' Black on Choo AppService = __decorate([ Foo(), __metadata(Jimmy Slip Shoe on 'Norway' Knit Sneaker Running Women's Choo Black 'design:paramtypes', [http_service_1.HttpService]) ], AppService); return AppService; }()); exports.AppService = AppService;

Wow, the metadata were generated! And indeed, the app still work perfectly!

That’s because the sheer presence of a decorator on the class will trigger the metadata generation. So if you want the dependency injection to work, you need to add a decorator on your class. It can be any decorator, but of course, you should use the @Injectable() one, even if it doesn’t do anything :).
