7 Ways to be Successful with AngularJS | Learn AngularJS After learning and building a few projects in AngularJS, I’ve distilled my experience into these 7 ways to be successful with your AngularJS project. 1) Use Grunt Yes I know this is a blog about AngularJS and my first point is about another tool, but I feel it’s that important. Grunt is a great tool for your AngularJS app providing a number of incredibly useful tools that can be configured in a matter of minutes. One of Grunt’s great strengths is the ability to be productive immediately while still being extensible and flexible enough to support large and complex projects. The key grunt tasks are concat, watch with livereload enabled and grunt karma (more on this later). The description here is for a development setup, there are additional considerations when building your app for production (things like minification, image optimization etc.) grunt karma provides a very nice wrapper around the karma test runner for running your unit tests. 2) Write Your Tests from Day 1. 5) Use Filters
Jehu/ng-mobile AngularJS Tutorial: Learn to Rapidly Build Real-time Web Apps with Firebase In response to the feedback from our original tutorial, we decided to take the new version of the tutorial in an entirely new direction. Mucking around in backend code doesn't belong in an AngularJS tutorial, and we've found an elegant solution to this problem. This tutorial will guide you through the process of creating a frontend-only application. Firebase’s firebase.js and angularFire.js libraries offer an entirely new flavor of application: an app built with no backend server or code. The only parts of this application are the AngularJS app, the Firebase data store, and the minimal backend server to deliver the assets to the browser. Our intention with this tutorial is to provide the AngularJS community with instructions on how to design and build an ultra-modern application. The application you are building will go beyond basic use of AngularJS, and we will attempt to explore as much of the framework as possible. The tutorial is a living thing, a work in progress. app/js/config.js
Jens Rantil's Hideout Lately I've been working a lot in AngularJS. This is my second project with the framework, and the more time I spend in it, the more I like it. But as with most things, AngularJS has some rough corners. Its documentation still has a long way to go, although it has improved since last time I used it over a year ago. My intention with this blog post is to go through one such use case, namely dealing with complex dependencies. The level of this tutorial is intermediate. A slow service Let's say you have some data you would like to present to your user and you prepare some data in your controller. This is very basic AngularJS and I expect you to have no problems understanding the mapping done here. But in the real world, we rarely hardcode things. Now, let's create a service that simulates a slower API call. Notice that it takes a couple of seconds before the result is presented on the screen when you click "Result". Obviously, we are not generating any errors here, but you never know!
The Next Big Programming Language You’ve Never Heard Of | Enterprise Getty Andrei Alexandrescu didn’t stand much of a chance. And neither did Walter Bright. When the two men met for beers at a Seattle bar in 2005, each was in the midst of building a new programming language, trying to remake the way the world creates and runs its computer software. That’s something pretty close to a hopeless task, as Bright knew all too well. Alexandrescu, a graduate student at the time, could’ve said the same thing to Bright, an engineer who had left the venerable software maker Symantec a few years earlier. Andrei Alexandrescu.Photo: Ariel Zambelich/WIRED The result is a programming language that just might defy the odds. C++ is an extremely fast language—meaning software built with it runs at high speed—and it provides great control over your code. Among the giants of tech, this is an increasingly common goal. In the past, the programming world was split in two: the fast languages and the simpler modern languages. The Cape of a Superhero For Alexandrescu, D is unique.
Kickstart Your AngularJS Development with Yeoman, Grunt and Bower Whether you love or hate it, there’s no denying that AngularJS is the framework on every developer’s lips. It may not be for everybody, but AngularJS has a quirky, efficient and powerful feature set. Couple that with a few useful development tools like Yeoman, Grunt and Bower and you’ve got yourself an incredibly fast rapid prototyping process. What we’ll cover This AngularJS tutorial will cover: Generating a bare bones AngularJS app with YeomanUsing Grunt to speed up development and help perform repetitive tasksUsing Bower to add third party plugins/frameworksMaking minor changes to your AngularJS app Prerequisites To get the most out of this tutorial we recommend you have the following skills and resources available: A terminal and basic knowledge of the command lineNodeJS and NPM installedFundamental JS, CSS and HTML knowledge Files You can find a repo of this tutorial project here. Let’s get started yo! Alright, let’s get this thing underway. npm install -g yo grunt-cli bower Yeoman yo angular
