Lazy loading is a technique to load the content only when the user asks for it. Therefore, the initial loading of the webpage is much faster as the complete page is not loaded. In case of lots of images on the webpage, it is always recommended to use lazy loading for the images. As an example, while showing a photo gallery, there is no point loading all the images in one go as the user may leave after only viewing the first few images and this would result in slower loading and waste of bandwidth. In such scenarios, lazy loading is an ideal choice. This post talks about how to lazy load images in Angular 6.

In this post, we’ll see how to get started with Angular Console and create an angular application using the same.
