NG-SNow Starter Project
This starter project is intended to help you build and deploy angular2 applications on the ServiceNow platform. Before you ask me "Why angular2?" I will go ahead and answer that question, because its awesome. Thats why. Here are a few reasons why I like it:
- Optional 2-way data binding
- Automatic scoped CSS (this really is more amazing that it sounds)
- Built in use of RxJs
- Have nodejs installed
- Have npm installed
- Have angular-cli installed:
npm install -g angular-cli
- Clone repo (obviously)
npm run setup
After the project and dev tools have been installed, it is time to start developing!
To get things started, run:
npm run startThis will spin up a localhost server on port 4200 to serve the application locally. This command will also configure a proxy so any
/apirequest will be routed to your instance with a BasicAuth header added on the request for authentication.
Once you save a file, the project is recompiled and the dev page is refreshed in the browser.
When building out your application, authentication is not required. ServiceNow will handle authenticated access to the application itself.
Use the pre-built http-client (src/app/services/http-client.service.ts) when making any API calls. The service will return a standard http-client but the custom service will add the X-UserToken to the request headers for authenticated API calls once deployed.
Don't forget that you can use angular-cli to build services, classes, components, etc automatically with the ng generators https://github.com/angular/angular-cli#generating-components-directives-pipes-and-services
Make sure your snow.conf.json file has the sys_ids of all the required files loaded. Then run
npm run deploythis will build and deploy your files to the instance.
Contributions are very welcomed.
