Angular Express Seed
Start an awesome app with AngularJS on the front, Express + Node on the back. This project is an application skeleton for a typical AngularJS web app for those who want to use Node to serve their app.
The seed contains angular libraries, test libraries and a bunch of scripts all preconfigured for instant web development gratification. Just clone the repo (or download the zip/tarball) and you're ready to develop your application.
The seed app shows how to wire together Angular client-side components with Express on the server. It also illustrates writing angular partials/views with the Jade templating library.
Note: Although Jade supports interpolation, you should be doing that mostly on the client. Mixing server and browser templating will convolute your app. Instead, use Jade as a syntactic sugar for HTML, and let AngularJS take care of interpolation on the browser side.
