Try it Out First with DryRun!

Coming up with consistent, meaningful, yet short and pragmatic names for our Angular project components is not easy. Today, in trying to be very descriptive as per the Angular Style Guide’s recommendation (, I may have just created the longest named component known to humankind. Having realized that after the fact, I looked to see if the Angular CLI had a way to undo component creation and of course as you already may know that option does not exist. Having spent more time than I had hoped refactoring this, I decided that whenever I use “ng g” to first ask the CLI how the new component’s structure would look like by supplying the –dry-run flag to my ng generate command.
