Yes, I'm working on a layout component for Angular applications. I'm just about finished the first quick and dirty version and will be using it to build my portfolio as a starter project. The idea of the component is to make it easier to control the outer layout of your application or widget. It provides hooks for positioning, display, and transitions for screens, overlays and panels. As a component it's at a pretty early stage right now, once I have used it to build my site I should have a better idea if the approach I chose has any merit.
