[Fixed] angular 2 exclude url in routing


I have implemented routing using angular as below –

export const routes: RouterConfig = [
  { path: '', component: HomeComponent },
  { path: '**', component: SearchComponent }

I need to match all the default urls to search. There are some statics resources like js, css files in angular application. My problem is that all the static resources are also going to search component now. Is there some way I can exclude these static resources from routing.


Try something like this. Note that you need to import all your other modules at the top, and I’m assuming that you’re setting up routes in your app.module.ts file.

This also is using the Angular1.x style http://url/#/ routing style as I’ve found that to be much more stable in browsers when deployed.

I would also recommend create a static assets directory at the root of your deployment directory and store static files there. Something like this:


import all modules...
import { RouterModule, Routes, PreloadAllModules } from '@angular/router';

const routes: Routes = [
  { path: '', 
    component: HomeComponent, 
    pathMatch: 'full'
  { path: '**', 
    component: SearchComponent

  declarations: [
  imports: [
      useHash: true,
      preloadingStrategy: PreloadAllModules
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]

export class AppModule {}
