#Cloudant Angular Node Express with Bootstrap

I searched around for a project that demonstrated using Cloudant and Node with authentication. I could only find examples using Mongo and Passport JS, so this is a modification of a project that demonstrates using the new Cloudant Node library.

Forked from mancioshell/NodeJS-ExpresJS-MongoDB-AngularJS-Bootstrap-NotyJS-seed and spiced with Twitter Bootstrap.

Start an awesome app with AngularJS + Bootstrap on the front, Cloudant + 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 with the new Cloudant Node Library.

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 EJS.

How to use Cloudant-angular-node-express seed application

Clone the Cloudant-angular-node-express-seed repository.

run `npm install` to grab the dependencies  
run `bower install` to grab the static file dependencies

Initializing the application

If you don't have a Cloudant account you need to create a new one at Cloudant. You'll then need to modify the config.js file with the account information:

config.cloudant.account = "yourusername"
config.cloudant.password = "yourpassword"

Once you start the application, you will need to setup the application by navigating to a setup URL and create the database, admin user, and Cloudant Query index on the username:

http://localhost:3000/setup

Running the app

Runs like a typical express app:

node app.js

Once you've run the setup function, you can login as the admin user or create a new user by clicking on the Reigster link.

Receiving updates from upstream

Just fetch the changes and merge them into your project with git.
