This repository covers material in 2 screencasts,

This is an extension of my screencast Intro to Angular JS that focuses more on intermediate/advanced topics and walks through creating a working web application on top of the Laravel 4 Web Application Framework.

Things you can expect to learn from End to End with Angular JS:

  • $http
  • $rootScope
  • taking the AuthenticationService we built earlier end-to-end
  • creating a FlashService for displaying alerts to users
  • access control for client-side routes with $rootScope and $routeProvider
  • $httpProvider.responseInterceptors and logging out users automatically if serverside sessions expire
  • $routeProvider.resolve property and making view rendering data dependent
  • laravel 4 migrations, controllers, models, and authentication

Things you can expect to learn from Security with Angular JS:

  • 3 common-sense ways to secure your web application
  • angular.constant
  • ng-init
  • ng-sanitize
  • Laravel CSRF support, route filters, and built in protection


Prerequisite Installation Instructions:

Installing PHP 5.4 and MCrypt is the most tedious part of getting up and running with this example, but Laravel 4 is so nice that I think it's worth it. Here's the basic instructions for getting up on Mac OS X:

  1. Install Homebrew
  2. Make sure you correct any problems that brew doctor detects
  3. Install Laravel 4
  4. Tap the PHP keg from @josegonzalez: brew tap josegonzalez/php
  5. Install PHP 5.4 brew install php55
  6. Install MCrypt brew install php55-mcrypt (this will automatically link the binary into the php.ini for you)
  7. Install Composer brew install composer (think of it like homebrew, or npm, or apt-get, but for PHP modules)

App Installation Instructions:

  1. clone this repo: git clone
  2. install composer dependencies composer install
  3. create a database called laravelapp
  4. create your unique security key php artisan key:generate
  5. run database migrations php artisan migrate
  6. seed the database php artisan db:seed
  7. run the app php artisan serve
  8. browse to http://localhost:8000 and log in with email and password admin

Once you have the app up and running you can visit http://localhost:8000 and you will see the Login Form.
