Angular 4 basic routing

Issue

I’m trying to show different htmls for different urls. When user types basic url he should see maincomponent.html, when application recognizes there is additional /admin subpath it should show admin.html. Both are modules. As far as I know, Routes makes it possible. How can I achieve that?

app.module.ts:

    import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

    import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
    import {Routes, RouterModule} from "@angular/router";

    import { AdminModule } from './Admin/admin.module';
    import { MainpageModule } from './Mainpage/mainpage.module';


    const appRoutes: Routes = [
      {path: 'admin', component: AdminModule},
      {path: '', component: MainpageModule}
    ];

    @NgModule({
      declarations: [
        AppComponent
      ],
      imports: [
        MainpageModule,
        AdminModule,
        BrowserModule,
        RouterModule.forRoot(
          appRoutes, {enableTracing: true}
        )
      ],
      providers: [],
      bootstrap: [AppComponent]
    })
    export class AppModule { }

mainpage.module.ts

    import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
    import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';
    import {MainpageComponent} from './mainpage.component'

    import { HeaderComponent } from './Header/header.component';
    import { FooterComponent } from './Footer/footer.component';
    import { SidebarComponent } from './Sidebar/sidebar.component';
    import { BottompanelComponent } from './Bottompanel/bottompanel.component'
    import { CarouselComponent } from './Carousel/carousel.component'

    @NgModule({
      declarations: [
        MainpageComponent,
        HeaderComponent,
        FooterComponent,
        SidebarComponent,
        BottompanelComponent,
        CarouselComponent
      ],
      imports: [CommonModule],
      entryComponents: [MainpageComponent],
      exports: [MainpageComponent],
      providers: [],
      bootstrap: []
    })

    export class MainpageModule {}

admin.module.ts:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';

import {AdminComponent} from './admin.component'

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AdminComponent,
  ],
  imports: [CommonModule],
  exports: [AdminComponent],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: []
})

export class AdminModule {}

However it doesn’t works, I can’t see anything, just blank site. This is my log output:

EDIT: according to answers I edited app.module.ts and added <router-outlet></router-outlet> to app.component.html.

app.module.ts:

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import {Routes, RouterModule} from "@angular/router";

import { AdminComponent } from './Admin/admin.component';
import { MainpageComponent } from './Mainpage/mainpage.component';


const appRoutes: Routes = [
  {path: 'admin', component: AdminComponent},
  {path: '', component: MainpageComponent}
];

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    MainpageComponent,
    AdminComponent,
    AppComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    RouterModule.forRoot(
      appRoutes, {enableTracing: true}
    )
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

Now i see these errors:

compiler.js:485 Uncaught Error: Template parse errors:

This is how my structure looks like:

Solution

Ok I found a solution. The problem was I did not declared components in app.module.ts, also in submodules we can remove that declarations. Finally it should look that:

app.module.ts:

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { Routes, RouterModule } from "@angular/router";

import { AdminComponent } from './Admin/admin.component';
import { MainpageComponent } from './Mainpage/mainpage.component';

import { HeaderComponent } from './mainpage/header/header.component'
import { FooterComponent } from './mainpage/footer/footer.component';
import { SidebarComponent } from './mainpage/sidebar/sidebar.component';
import { BottompanelComponent } from './mainpage/bottompanel/bottompanel.component'
import { CarouselComponent } from './mainpage/carousel/carousel.component'

const appRoutes: Routes = [
  { path: 'admin', component: AdminComponent },
  { path: 'home', component: MainpageComponent },
  { path: '', redirectTo: '/home', pathMatch: 'full' }
];

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    MainpageComponent,
    HeaderComponent,
    FooterComponent,
    SidebarComponent,
    BottompanelComponent,
    CarouselComponent,
    AdminComponent,
    AppComponent
  ],
  imports: [
    BrowserModule,
    RouterModule.forRoot(
      appRoutes, { enableTracing: true }
    )
  ],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

mainpage.module.ts:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';

import {MainpageComponent} from './mainpage.component'


 @NgModule({
  declarations: [
    MainpageComponent
  ],
  imports: [BrowserModule],
  exports: [MainpageComponent],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: []
})

export class MainpageModule {}

admin.module.ts:

import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { CommonModule } from '@angular/common';

import {AdminComponent} from './admin.component'

@NgModule({
  declarations: [
    AdminComponent,
  ],
  imports: [CommonModule],
  exports: [AdminComponent],
  providers: [],
  bootstrap: []
})

export class AdminModule {}

Thanks for your help guys 🙂
