  • In app.component.ts import the trigger, state, style, transition, animate to be used.
  • Make the transition containing stateChangeExpr, steps, options for the animation.
  • Serve the angular app using ng serve to see the output.

Example 1:


import { LOCALE_ID, NgModule }
from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } 
from '@angular/platform-browser';
import {BrowserAnimationsModule}
from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { AppRoutingModule } 
from './app-routing.module';
import { AppComponent }
from './app.component';
  declarations: [
  imports: [
  providers: [
      { provide: LOCALE_ID, useValue: 'en-GB' },
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }


import { 
  // Transition is imported here
  animate } from '@angular/animations';
import { Component } from '@angular/core';
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: [ './app.component.css' ],
  animations: [
      state('clr', style({
        'background-color': '#ff0000',
        transform: 'translateX(0)'
      state('clr1', style({
        'background-color': '#000000',
        transform: 'translateX(100px) translateY(100px) scale(0.3)'
      // transition is used here 
      transition('clr => clr1',animate(1600)),
      transition('clr1 => clr',animate(100))
export class AppComponent  {
  state = 'clr';
    this.state == 'clr' ? this.state = 'clr1' : this.state = 'clr';
