Sample Angular App for observable-entities-js

Sample app for observable-entities-js.

Note: You must install rxjs version 5.4.3 or greater, in order to avoid a compilation error.

  • For more info see this issue.

Note: You must change the TypeScript compiler target to "es2015" in ts.config.json, and tsconfig.spec.json.

  • Apps using observable-entities can support most modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Edge, etc), but they will not be able to support legacy browsers (Internet Explorer).


Install observable-entities as a runtime dependency from npm.

npm i --save observable-entities


To observe property changes on an object, create a class that extends ObservableEntity. Then add a constructor that returns super.proxify(this). For example

export class Product extends ObservableEntity {
  productId: number;
  productName: string;
  unitPrice: number;

  constructor() {
    return super.proxify(this);

ObservableEntity as a modifyListeners property of type Subject<INotifyInfo>[]. To listen for property changes, add a listener can call subscribe on it. For example, an Angular component can perform observable-based data binding with an OnPush strategy.

// Trigger binding when item is updated
this.modifyListener = new Subject<INotifyInfo>();
this.modifyListener.subscribe(info => {;

// Add listener to each product
this.products.forEach(product => {

Similarly, ObservableSet and ObservableMap have addListeners and removeListeners properties, and you can add listeners to trigger data binding when items are added or removed.

// Trigger data binding when item is added
this.addListener = new Subject<INotifyInfo>();
this.addListener.subscribe(info => {;

// Add listenter to products

This project was generated with Angular CLI version 1.4.1.

Development server
