AngularJS Starter App Providing User Management

CAUTION: Sapling is in the very early stages of development. Things are likely to change in ways that are not backwards compatible

AngularJS + Brunch

Client Features:

  • User Account management
  • User login
  • User signup
  • Coffeescript / Less / Sass / SCSS / Stylus automatically compiled on save
  • auto-reload during development saves you from manually refreshing the page
  • Javascript / CSS minification for production
  • testacular integration for unit tests
  • Bootstrap integration with themes.

Usage

Sapling is intended to be used with a backend, but comes with a basic NodeJS / Express server to get your started. Please visit the backend section for a complete list of backends.

  • git clone https://github.com/scotch/sapling.git to clone the sapling repository
  • cd sapling
  • ./scripts/init.sh to install node packages
  • ./scripts/development.sh to compile javascript and css

Development

Starting Sapling with Express

*npm start Then navigate your browser to http://localhost:3000 This will run the Brunch in the background

Testing

Notes:

  • If you would like to write your test in coffeescript run ./scripts/compile-tests.sh in a separate window.
  • Testacular will run tests on save. To insure that changes are saved be sure to have `./script/development.sh running in the console.
  • To changed the target browsers modify your /test/conf.js file E.g. browser = ["ChromeCanary", "Firefox"]
End to end testing

WIP

Production

  • ./scripts/production.sh to minify javascript and css files for production use.

FAQ

Common issues

EMFILE error

  • EMFILE means there're too many open files. Brunch watches all your project files and it's usually a pretty big number. You can fix this error with setting max opened file count to bigger number with command ulimit -n (ulimit -n 10000 should be enough).
