Angular/Ionic Drupal7 Services

Well structured angular modules mimic the architecture of Drupal Services 3.x

Bower version npm version
Package Quality

Angular Drupal7 Services is a REST client for AngularJS, which allows you to user predefined functions when communication with Drupal's api endpoints.
Unlike the other project focusing on the same topic, Angular Drupal7 Services is precisely organized around the Drupal Services 3.x architecture and naming conventions.

It optionally provides events next to the common used promise approach.

A full set of Drupal's resources is available, and all basic workflow's depending to authentication or helpers for CRUD operations are also provided as a set of extra modules.

##DEMOS Check out the Drupal-API-Explorer for a full demo
Or check out the sample implementation for Ionic-Headless-Drupal

Get Started

(1) Get Angular Drupal7 Services:

  • clone & build this repository
  • download as .zip
  • or via npm: by running $ npm install ng-drupal-7-services from your console
  • or via Bower: by running $ bower install ng-drupal-7-services from your console

(2) Include ng-drupal-7-services.js in your index.html.

(3) Add 'd7-services' to your main module's list of dependencies

API Documentation (!!!in progress!!!)


(1) Insert the ng-drupal-7-services.js bundle into your index.html file.

<!doctype html>
<html ng-app="myApp">

    <script src="bower_components/angular/angular.min.js"></script>
    <!-- ng-drupal-7-services and it's dependencies-->
    <script src="bower_components/angular-cookies/angular-cookies.min.js"></script>
    <script src="bower_components/ngstorage/ngStorage.js"></script>
    <script src="bower_components/ng-drupal-7-services/dist/ng-drupal-7-services.js"></script>

        angular.module('myApp', ['d7-services'])
        .config(function configFunction(DrupalApiConstant) {
                		//configure your drupal instance
                		DrupalApiConstant.drupal_instance = 'http://your.projects.domain/';

(2) Using the services.

    .controller('NodeController', ['NodeResource', 'NodeChannel', function(NodeResource, NodeChannel){

        //fire request
         var retrievePromis = NodeResource.retrieve({nid:1});

        //using promise.then callbacks
        retrievePromis.then(function(data) { ... },function(error) { ... });

        //subscribing to events
        //This could happen in another directive/controller too
        NodeChannel.subRetrieveConfirmed($scope, function(data){ ... });
        NodeChannel.subRetrieveFailed($scope, function(error){ ... });


##Configuration Basically all configurable options are wrapped in an angular constant. IF you changed any of Drupal's default settings adopt the constants in DrupalApiConstant in Angular's config phase as shown above. Find all available options in the API Documentation under Commons/DrupalApiConstant.

  angular.module('myApp', ['d7-services'])
        .config(function configFunction(DrupalApiConstant) {
           //your changes here
