AngularJS

Why Angular?

Why Angular?

AngularJS

  • Opinionated
  • Two-way data binding
  • Components (aka Directives)
  • Single page apps
  • Dependency injection
  • Community

AngularJS Projects

  • Ionic Framework
  • Angular Snap.js
  • angular-phonegap-ready

Angular + AEM Challenges

  • Bring SPA paradigm to CMS
  • Author mode VS. client side templating
    • Access control
    • Model & view separation
    • Reusability of author’s skills
  • Performance

Angular + AEM

Routing


$routeProvider
    .when('/content/phonegap/geometrixx/apps/ng-geometrixx-outdoors/en/home', {
        templateUrl: 'home.template.html' + cacheKiller,
        controller: 'geometrixxoutdoorsenhome'
    })

Angular + AEM

Controllers


// Controller for page 'home'
.controller('geometrixxoutdoorsenhome', 
    ['$scope', '$http',
        function($scope, $http) {
            var data = $http.get('home.angular.json' + cacheKiller);

            /* swipe_carousel component controller */
            data.then(function(response) {
                $scope.playSpeed = 
                    response.data["content-par/swipe_carousel"].playSpeed;
                $scope.contentparngswipecarousel = 
                    response.data["content-par/swipe_carousel"].items;
            });
