File: template.html

Note: In the below code i’ve created Recursive ng-template. 

  1. #mylst1 is a template reference variable for the ng-template
  2. let-list –> here we are defining a local variable. let is a key word to declare variables in typescript.
  3. ng-container –> It’s a container to group html elements, which is same as ng-include  in AngularJS. For reference please follow the link
