The Angular Dependency Injection system allows you inject, into your components, classes and values for you to use, for instance as services. _Injectable_s can be Angular services (such as the Http class), third-party services (like ngx-translate), your own classes or even object values.


In order to inject an @Injectable, you need to make sure it is registered in the Dependency Injection system. Let's find out how to declare and register injectables. If you want to create a class that is used as a singleton throughout your module, a service for instance, you should create your class and add the @Injectable decorator to it.

export class TheService {
  public publicFunction () {
    return 'I am a public function';

Then, you need to register it as a provider for the component(s) you want to use it in. You can do this by using the providers property of the @Component decorator:

import { TheService } from './the-service.ts';

  selector: 'compo',
  providers: [TheService],
class Compo {


Injecting an Injectable is done through the constructor of the class you want to inject it into.

  public router: Router,
  public theService: TheService,
  private http: Http,
  ) {

The type of the parameter is the name of the class you want to inject. Making the injectable public will make it accessible by the template.
