An example notes application built with RESTHeart, AngularJS and MongoDB.

Clone this repository locally

$ git clone git@github.com:SoftInstigate/restheart-notes-example.git
$ cd restheart-notes-example

Install mongodb and RESTHeart

For detailed installation instructions refer to the documentation.

However the quickest way is using the docker-compose.yml in restheat's distribution:


Clone the restheart repo and cd into the Docker folder, then:

$ docker-compose up -d

After the docker mongodb and restheart containers are started in background, you can check the logs:

$ docker-compose logs -f

Create the data model

We will be using the RESTHeart API with httpie (you can also use another http client such as curl)

$ http -a admin:changeit PUT http://localhost:8080/rhnedb descr="restheart notes example db"

HTTP/1.1 201 Created

$ http -a admin:changeit PUT http://localhost:8080/rhnedb/notes descr="notes collection"

HTTP/1.1 201 Created

Start the Web app

First of all you need Node.js for your system https://nodejs.org.

Then install Grunt and Bower:

npm install -g bower grunt-cli

Run npm install to install project dependencies:

npm install

Optionally, install compass (you must have ruby properly installed in your system):

gem update --system
gem install compass

Run bower install. If Bower asks you for the AngularJS version, choose the most recent.

bower install

If you want to preview the web application, run grunt serve; after few seconds it should open the default browser at http://localhost:9000/.

grunt serve

If you don't have compass installed then you'll get an error message, in this case just use grunt serve --force to continue.

To login in the Web app, you can use the admin user with password changeit

For more information on RESTHeart' security refer to the documentation.


Running grunt test will run the unit tests with karma.
