Angular + Sails + + MongoDB Demo

A simple CRUD example of using AngularJS with SailsJS. It uses Angular Resource to interface with the Sails REST back-end Api and also includes some interaction on the front-end. There is some basic authentication and also a few nifty directives for loading gravatars via email address and form password validation. Enjoy!


git clone
cd angular-sails-socketio-mongo-demo
npm install

You will want to configure your Mongo DB in config/adapters.js

mongo: {
  module   : 'sails-mongo',
  url      : 'mongodb://localhost:27017/YOUR_DB_NAME'

Then to start the server on port 1337 run:

sails lift

Partials (inlined)

Partials can either be inlined into the main html page by dumping partials into the assets/templates folder, your partial should look like this:

<script type="text/ng-template" id="partial1.html">
  <h1>View 1</h1>
  <p>foo = {{foo}}</p>

You can also create sub folders within the templates folder to keep things more organized. Just make sure to reference the path relative to your templates folder like this:

<script type="text/ng-template" id="partials/partial1.html">
  <h1>View 1</h1>
  <p>foo = {{foo}}</p>

then include the line below in your main html body (this will concatenate and inject all the partials into the page):

<%- assets.templateLibrary() %>

Your when statement in your angular routeprovider would look like this :

when('/view1', {templateUrl: 'partial1.html'}).

where partial1.html would be the id specified in your partial

Partials (remote)

Partials can also be served from the server by dumping your plain html partials into assets/templates/partials (note though that if you include the assets.templateLibrary() line from above - the partials in this folder will still be injected into the page)

Your when statement in your angular routeprovider - in this case - would look like this :

when('/view1', {templateUrl: '/template/find/partial1.html'}).

(this uses the api/controller/TemplateController.js to serve up a partial by name)
