Integrating an external React component like atlasmap-2.3.5 into an Angular 12 application involves using a wrapper or creating a custom Angular component to render the React component. Here's a step-by-step guide to achieve this integration:

Step 1: Install Required Dependencies First, install the necessary dependencies:

  1. Install atlasmap-2.3.5 and its peer dependencies in the Angular application:

    npm install atlasmap-2.3.5 react react-dom
  2. Install @types/react and @types/react-dom for TypeScript typings:

    npm install --save-dev @types/react @types/react-dom

Step 2: Create a React Wrapper Component In the Angular project, create a React wrapper component that encapsulates the atlasmap-2.3.5 component. This wrapper component will render the React component and manage the necessary React-specific logic.

Create a new file called AtlasMapWrapper.tsx in the root of your Angular project (you can change the location as per your preference) with the following content:

import React, { useRef, useEffect } from 'react'; import AtlasMapComponent from 'atlasmap-2.3.5'; // Adjust the import path based on the actual path of the atlasmap-2.3.5 component const AtlasMapWrapper: React.FC = () => { const atlasMapRef = useRef<HTMLDivElement>(null); useEffect(() => { const atlasMapInstance = new AtlasMapComponent(); // Adjust this line to initialize atlasmap-2.3.5 component // Attach the atlasmap-2.3.5 instance to the DOM element if (atlasMapRef.current) { atlasMapRef.current.appendChild(atlasMapInstance); } // Clean up return () => { // Unmount and destroy the atlasmap-2.3.5 instance when the component is unmounted atlasMapInstance.unmount(); }; }, []); return <div ref={atlasMapRef}></div>; }; export default AtlasMapWrapper;

Step 3: Add the Wrapper Component to Angular Application In your Angular application, add the AtlasMapWrapper component wherever you want to use the atlasmap-2.3.5 component.

In your Angular component, import the AtlasMapWrapper component:

import { Component } from '@angular/core'; @Component({ selector: 'app-your-component', template: `<div> <!-- Other Angular content here --> <atlas-map-wrapper></atlas-map-wrapper> </div>`, }) export class YourComponent {}

Make sure to adjust the selector app-your-component and the HTML content as per your Angular application's structure.

Step 4: Handle CSS and Styling Ensure that the required CSS and styles for atlasmap-2.3.5 are included in your Angular application's styles. You may need to add the necessary CSS files to the styles array in your Angular project's angular.json file.

That's it! With these steps, you should be able to integrate the atlasmap-2.3.5 React component into your Angular 12 application using a wrapper component. Keep in mind that this method might require additional customization depending on the specific requirements and usage of atlasmap-2.3.5.
