Angular 2 – How to use config files

When working in ZF2 we use configuration files that may vary from developer to developer and between production and staging environments. Its pretty convenient and as such I want to replicate this for Angular 2.

How it works in ZF2: We have a config folder with configs named: settings.local.php and We then use a gitignore file to ignore anything with local in it.

For Angular 2 I was thinking of having a config folder and then using a service to grab the configuration files…

Is there a convention for something like this in Angular 2?
