Here are some local variables that NgFor provides:

  • index :current iteration (1 , 2 , 3 ….n)
  • last : Boolean that indicates if an item is the last iteration.
  • even : Boolean if the item has an even index.
  • odd : Boolean if the item has an odd index.


When the iterator changes NgFor changes the DOM, it adds, removes, and reorders new parts to the DOM depending on the number of items (e.g. add new item, remove an item).

NgFor Example :

 * Created by Tareq Boulakjar. from
import {Component} from 'angular2/core';
import {CORE_DIRECTIVES} from 'angular2/common';

                               <span class="car-title">{{i}}. {{item}}</span>
                .car-title {
                    color: #00b0e8;

    directives: [CORE_DIRECTIVES]
export class Angular2NgFor {
    constructor() {
        this.carsList = ['BMW Serie 1', 'BMW Serie 2', 'BMW Serie 3', 'Angular Car', 'Angular 2 iCar'];
