Documentation:

Usage

Develop code on folder /src

/src
    /data
    /images
    /scripts
        /controllers
        /directives
    /styles
    /templates

Compile code

Use grunt task to compile code and deploy webapp

grunt serve

THis will launch server on port 9000

http://localhost:9000/

Distribute code is compileded on forder /dist

/dist
    /css
    /data
    /images
    /js
    /lib
    /templates

Routing

Put the routes for your app into file /script/routes.js.

define(['controllers', 'directives'], function() {
    'use strict';
    window.app.config(['$routeProvider',
        function($routeProvider) {
            $routeProvider.
            when('/', {
                templateUrl: 'templates/index.html',
                controller: 'indexController'
            }).
            otherwise({
                redirectTo: '/'
            });
        }
    ]);
});

Controllers

Controllers are loaded by RequireJS. Put all your neededed controllers into file /scripts/controllers.js.

define(['controllers/index'], function(indexController) {
    'use strict';
    window.app.controller('indexController', indexController);
});

The controllers files should be located into folder /scripts/controllers/

//scripts/controllers/index.js

define([], function() {
    'use strict';

    function indexController($scope, $http) {
        $scope.data = {};
        $scope.data.libs = [];
        $http.get('data/data.json').then(function(result) {
            $scope.data.libs = result.data;
        });
    }
    indexController.$inject = ['$scope', '$http'];
    return indexController;
});

Directives

Directives are loaded by RequireJS. Put all your neededed directives into file /scripts/directives.js.

define(['directives/header', 'directives/footer'], function(headerDirective, footerDirective) {
    'use strict';
    window.app.directive('ngheader', headerDirective);
    window.app.directive('ngfooter', footerDirective);
});

The directive files should be located into folder /scripts/directives/

//scripts/directives/header.js

define(['controllers/header', 'text!../../templates/header.html'], function(controller, template) {
    'use strict';

    function headerDirective() {
        return {
            restrict: 'A',
            controller: controller,
            template: template
        };
    }
    return headerDirective;
});

You can use RequireJS Text plugin to load a tempate file for the directive and inject a controller.

Templating

The NodeJS template engine JADE is implemented. Jade files (*.jade) must be located on /templates folder root.

  • Grunt task jade.js will process the files into HTML files to folder /templates/html.
  • Grunt task copy.js will copy all CSS files into /templates/html to folder /dist/templates for ditribution.
  • You can also create and edit HTML templates files in /templates/html.

You can use combined Jade and Angular directives for templating:

//templates/index.jade

header('ngheader'='')

section(class='content')

header
    img(class='logo', src='images/angularjs.png')

.buttons.row
    a('ng-repeat'='lib in data.libs', 'class'='btn btn-default btn-sm', 'href'='{{lib.url}}', 'target'='_black') {{lib.name}}

footer('ngfooter'='')

Documentation:

Styling

Sass files (*.sass, *.scss) must be located on /src/styles folder root.

  • Grunt task sass.js will process the files into CSS files to folder /src/styles/css.
  • Grunt task copy.js will copy all CSS files into /src/styles/css to folder /dist/css for ditribution.
  • You can also create and edit CSS files in /src/styles/css.

Dependencies

Grunt task copy.js will read all bower.js files from /bower_components subfolders, and copy the file path from main node, like:

//bower_components/requirejs/bower.json
{
  ...
  "main": "require.js",
  ...
} 

And put this files into folder /dist/lib/.

If any installed dependency has no bower.json file (like lodash) you must edit the copy.js task to manually copy it:

grunt.config.set('copy', {
	...
	lodash_: {
		cwd: 'bower_components/lodash/dist',
		src: 'lodash.js',
		dest: 'dist/lib/',
		expand: true
	},
	...
});

If an unnecesaary file is copied (like boostrap.less):

//bower_components/bootstrap/bower.json
{
  ...
  "main": [
	"less/bootstrap.less",
	"dist/js/bootstrap.js"
  ],
  ...
} 

you can delete it with the clean-dist.js task:

//grunt/clean-dist.js
grunt.registerTask('clean-dist', 'Clean dist folder', function() {
	...
	grunt.config.set('clean.files.src', ['dist/lib/bootstrap.less']);
	...
});
