i'm relatively new to angular2 & typescript. I was making the app based on the tutorial on angular site(
only my routing doesn't seem to be working atm. No errors are being thrown. Just nothing happens when I click on my links that use angular2 routing. Also when I request a routing link directly from the browser address bar, the routing doesn't work. Everything else works. Below is the source code of my generated angular page. I added the relevant typescript files aswell.

Add routing variable to the imports list of AppModule class:

import { routing, appRoutingProviders } from './app.routing';

    imports: [BrowserModule, FormsModule, routing], // <-- `routing` is missing in the app.module.ts file
    // rest of the configuration...
export class AppModule { }

How do I add child routes to my config? I tried adding children parameter but then none of the routing works before I even need the child route.
