npm i -E [email protected]

import { Component, ViewChild, ElementRef } from '@angular/core';
import Popper from "popper.js";

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  // templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  template: `<div class="flex flex-wrap">
  <div class="w-full sm:w-6/12 md:w-4/12 px-4">
    <div class="relative inline-flex align-middle w-full">

      </button>
    </div>
  </div>
</div>`,
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
})
export class AppComponent {
  dropdownPopoverShow = false;
  @ViewChild('btnDropdownRef',{ static: false }) btnDropdownRef:ElementRef;
  popper = document.createElement("div");
  ngOnInit() {
    this.popper.innerHTML = `<div class="bg-white text-base z-50 float-left py-2 list-none text-left rounded shadow-lg mt-1" style="min-width:12rem" #popoverDropdownRef>
