How to create a Frontend Module for JWT Authentication in Angular?

Module for the frontend using Angular for session-based authentication. This module handles login, logout, and checking authentication status.

					import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';
import { Observable, of } from 'rxjs';
import { catchError, map } from 'rxjs/operators';

  providedIn: 'root'
export class AuthService {
  private apiUrl = 'http://localhost:3000'; // API endpoint

  constructor(private http: HttpClient) { }

  // Login function
  login(username: string, password: string): Observable<any> {
    const url = `${this.apiUrl}/login`;
    const body = { username, password };

    return<any>(url, body).pipe(
      map(response => {
        // Store the session information in local storage or other client-side storage
        localStorage.setItem('userId', response.userId);
        localStorage.setItem('username', response.username);
        return response;
      catchError(error => {
        return of(error);

  // Logout function
  logout(): void {
    // Clear the session information from local storage or other client-side storage

  // Check if user is authenticated
  isAuthenticated(): boolean {
    const userId = localStorage.getItem('userId');
    const username = localStorage.getItem('username');
    return !!userId && !!username; // Return true if both userId and username exist, false otherwise

  // Get the user ID
  getUserId(): string | null {
    return localStorage.getItem('userId');

  // Get the username
  getUsername(): string | null {
    return localStorage.getItem('username');

To use this module in your Angular components, you’ll need to import and inject the AuthService and use its functions. Here’s an example:

					import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { AuthService } from './auth.service';

  selector: 'app-login',
  template: `
    <form (ngSubmit)="login()">
      <!-- Login form fields -->
      <input type="text" [(ngModel)]="username" name="username">
      <input type="password" [(ngModel)]="password" name="password">
      <button type="submit">Login</button>
export class LoginComponent {
  username: string;
  password: string;

  constructor(private authService: AuthService) { }

  login(): void {
    this.authService.login(this.username, this.password).subscribe(
      response => {
        // Handle successful login response
      error => {
        // Handle login error

In your Angular component, you can use authService.isAuthenticated() to check if the user is authenticated, and authService.logout() to log out the user.

Remember to customize the API endpoint in the apiUrl variable to match your backend server’s URL.

Note that this is a simplified example, and in a real-world application, you would typically handle error handling, user feedback, and other necessary functionality based on your specific requirements.
