Angular JS Training
This application is used for Angular JS training in Future Processing.
To run the project, you need to have node.js installed on your machine. Head over to http://nodejs.org/ to get the latest version.
To install the dependencies, open the console, enter the project's directory and type in
npm install. This will fetch the libraries from the NPM repository Then you can start the application by
Running the server
node app will start up the web server on local port 3000. Open your browser and type in http:\localhost:3000 in the address bar to see the site.
Running the tests
Before first run, you need to install the Protractor's Webdriver. To do this, go to node_modules\protractor\bin inside of the project's directory (or node_modules\grunt-protractor-runner\node_modules\protractor\bin, if you are using npm 2.x) and type in
node webdriver-manager update.
Protractor depends on Java, so make sure you have JRE installed and available on PATH.
The easiest way to run the tests is to type in
grunt test. This task runs both Karma unit tests and Protractor E2E tests (make sure the application server is running before executing E2E tests).
You may also run the suites separately:
grunt karma:dev starts up the unit tests and
grunt protractor:dev launches end to end tests.
dev configuration uses the console reporter. If you wish to have a XML file with test results, run
grunt karma:ci or
grunt protractor:ci, respectively. Test results will be available under
test/results directory (please note that the tests may fail if this directory does not exist).
What's more, unit tests may also be started in a watch mode. Executing
grunt karma:watch starts up Karma and watches for file changes. If either source code or test is changed, all the tests are run immediately.
