Angular-Meteor Boilerplate

Usage

Since Meteor v1.4 you can use one command to create a working Angular2 app based on this boilerplate:

meteor create --example angular2-boilerplate

NPM Scripts

This boilerplate comes with predefined NPM scripts, defined in package.json:

  • $ npm run start - Run the Meteor application.
  • $ npm run start:prod - Run the Meteor application in production mode.
  • $ npm run build - Creates a Meteor build version under ./build/ directory.
  • $ npm run clear - Resets Meteor's cache and clears the MongoDB collections.
  • $ npm run meteor:update - Updates Meteor's version and it's dependencies.
  • $ npm run test - Executes Meteor in test mode with Mocha.
  • $ npm run test:ci - Executes Meteor in test mode with Mocha for CI (run once).

Boilerplate Contents

This boilerplate contains the basics that requires to quick start with Angular2-Meteor application.

This package contains:

  • TypeScript support (with @types) and Angular 2 compilers for Meteor
  • Angular-Meteor
  • Angular (core, common, compiler, platform, router, forms)
  • SASS, LESS, CSS support (Also support styles encapsulation for Angular 2)
  • Testing framework with Mocha and Chai
  • Meteor-RxJS support and usage

Folder Structure

The folder structure is a mix between Angular 2 recommendation and Meteor 1.3 recommendation.

Client

The client folder contains single TypeScript (.ts) file which is the main file (/client/app.component.ts), and bootstrap's the Angular application.

The main component uses HTML template and SASS file.

The index.html file is the main HTML which loads the application by using the main component selector (<app>).

All the other client files are under client/imports and organized by the context of the components (in our example, the context is demo).

Server

The server folder contain single TypeScript (.ts) file which is the main file (/server/main.ts), and creates the main server instance, and the starts it.

All other server files should be located under /server/imports.

Common

Example for common files in our app, is the MongoDB collection we create - it located under /both/demo-collection.ts and it can be imported from both client and server code.

Testing

The testing environment in this boilerplate based on Meteor recommendation, and uses Mocha as testing framework along with Chai for assertion.
