Import following line on your service file, ts file etc where you used Observable.

import { Observable } from 'rxjs';

Code: src/app/post.service.ts

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';

import { HttpClient } from '@angular/common/http';

import { Observable } from 'rxjs';

import { Post } from './post';


providedIn: 'root'


export class PostService {

private url: string = '';

constructor(private httpClient: HttpClient) { }

public getPosts(): Observable{

return this.httpClient.get(this.url);
