By default, Angular Express kickstarts a modern Angular 1.x application that features:

then use ngx init to kickstart your new project:

The default boilerplate comes with powerful pre-configured development tools so you can start working on your application immediately:

# Start the development server that uses jspm and systemjs

$ npm build

# Start a production server that uses a minified bundle

$ npm run production-server

# Compile a static version of your project to dist directory
$ npm run compile

Start the development server

From the root of your project, run:

# Start server in development mode
$ npm run development-server

and navigate your browser to http://localhost:9000.

If you open up the console and refresh the page, you will see that jspm dynamically loads all the required scripts.

Sourcemaps are available to make debugging as convenient as possible.

Start the production server

From the root of your project, run:

# Build a minified script bundle
$ npm run build

# Start server in production mode
$ npm run production-server

and navigate your browser to http://localhost:9000.

Now open up the console again and refresh the page. You will notice that all script requests have been replaced by one request to app/build.js.

Compile your project to a static websiteWomens Black INC International Classic Concepts Piano Pointed Pumps Toe PSORanSx

From the root of your project, run:

$ npm run compile

and a static version of your project will be generated in the dist directory.

You can host this static version on any HTTP server.

If you use HTML5 mode in Angular, you will need to configure your server to rewrite URL's.

But wait, there is more!

After kickstarting your project you can easily add small Angular Express components on top of it:

# Add a component to handle ui-router state-not-found events
$ ngx install angular-ui-router-state-not-found-handler

# Add a component to handle ui-router state-change errors
$ ngx install angular-ui-router-state-change-error-handler

# Add a component to customize Bootstrap 3 using LESS
$ ngx install less-custom-bootstrap3

# Add some components that contain boilerplate to create ui-router states
$ ngx install angular-ui-router-component src/components/homepage
$ ngx install angular-ui-router-component src/components/about
$ ngx install angular-ui-router-component src/components/contact

Dress Low Shoes Slip Heel On Red Womens's Pumps Flats Wedding Classic Ballerinas Pointed Eldof Style Rose Simple Toe Ballet $...

and import them in your Angular application as ES6 modules:

import angular from 'angular';

import errorHandler from 'components/angular-ui-router-state-change-error-handler/_build/index';
import homepage from 'components/hompage/_build/index';
import about from 'components/about/_build/index';
import contact from 'components/contact/_build/index';

contact(On Dress Flats Ballet Wedding Shoes Eldof Heel Pointed Classic Ballerinas Low Red Slip Style Simple Womens's Pumps Toe Rose ngModule, { baseUrl: '/components/contact' });

to scaffold entire applications in just seconds!

Each component can accept component specific options making them highly reusable and flexible. In the example above, components are passed a baseUrl to prepend to links in the view templates.

Once your application has been scaffolded, you can start adding your own code without having to worry about Angular Express.

Angular Express is not tied to your project or does not create hidden files in your repository. There are no dependencies either. It scaffolds the code for you and then backs off. No strings attached.

If, at any stage in your project, you want to add an additional existing component, you can run ngx install from the root of your project to install as many additional components as you like.

In short

Angular Express allows you to kickstart Angular applications by:

  • initializing a boilerplate using ngx init
  • adding components to your application using ngx install

Simple. Fast. Clean.
