Getting Started

The nodejs version being used is 7.7.3.

Clone the repository, in the project's root directory, run the command:

npm install or npm i

This will install all the necessary node modules required to run this project.

Then launch

ionic serve

this runs the app in development mode. Open http://localhost:8100 to view it in the browser.

Use the credentials admin:admin to login in to the app.

Setting up the backend

The app is by default using as the backend, it is recommended you change this for your personal development and testing purposes. There are two ways you can do this, either by hosting on the plone instance on your local machine or deploying an instance on heroku. It is favourable to use the former method as heroku will have storage restrictions.

  1. To set up Plone + plone.restapi you can follow these steps:

    then set up a Python virtualenv
    and then:
    bin/buildout -Nv -c plone-5.0.x.cfg
    and you will get a Plone instance with restapi

    The plone instance will be run on http://localhost:8080/Plone, replace the default backend by this.

  2. To set up the backend on heroku, go to, clicking on the deploy to heroku button will take you to the heroku dashboard. Select the app name and deploy the plone instance. It will run on [AppName], replace the default backend by this one.

After you get the plone instance running, go to site setup -> add-ons, and enable the plone restapi add-on.
