Angular Cms

The single app CMS based on Angular, Express, NodeJs and MongoDB.

Status: Working In Progress, not ready to use in production

How it work?

Let assume you need build the dynamic website, in Angular CMS, we need to breakdown this page to properties, blocks like this

cms-demo-site-breakdown

So thinking of the architecture in which the site which breakdowns to many pages, each page will also breakdowns to blocks and properties. After that we will definite the page types, block types to build the site.

From this idea, in Angular CMS, we will definite the Home Page page type like this

@PageType({
    displayName: "Home Page",
    componentRef: HomeComponent,
    description: "This is home page type"
})
export class HomePage extends PageData {

    @Property({
        displayName: "Logo",
        displayType: UIHint.Input
    })
    logo: string;

    @Property({
        displayName: "Latest Projects Page Root",
        displayType: UIHint.Input
    })
    latestProjectRoot: string;

    @Property({
        displayName: "Highlight Features",
        description: "This is highlight feature will be in banner area",
        displayType: UIHint.ContentArea
    })
    features: Array<any>;

    @Property({
        displayName: "Highlight Portfolios",
        displayType: UIHint.ContentArea,
    })
    portfolios: Array<any>;

    @Property({
        displayName: "Footer",
        displayType: UIHint.ContentArea
    })
    footer: Array<any>;

    @Property({
        displayName: "Footer Text",
        description: "This is footer text to show the copyright",
        displayType: UIHint.Xhtml
    })
    footerText: string;
}

Basically, we have just created the page type with properties: logo, features, portfolios, footer...

Then corresponding to page type, we will create a template (like Html template). In Angular CMS, this template actually is the Angular Component

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
import { CmsComponent } from '@angular-cms/core';
import { HomePage } from './home.pagetype';

@Component({
    templateUrl: './home.component.html',
})
export class HomeComponent extends CmsComponent<HomePage> {
    constructor() {
        super();
    }
}

Now when create the page with page type of Home Page, the HomeComponent is charge of rending the page's template

So after we done all things above, how to we create a page. In Angular CMS, we have the admin/editor UI to manage all pages like this

The Editor UI can be accessed via router: http://localhost:4200/cms/editor

The Admin UI can be accessed via router: http://localhost:4200/cms/admin

**Using the account: **

admin/12345678 or editor/1234qwer!

How it run

I created a GIF for demo purpose. It's just only 35MB (haha), so be patient for loading please.

In case your device or browser can't load the this gif, there is a video you can see Angular Cms Demo

cms-demo-site

This Admin/Editor UI is build with plug-in architecture

cms-demo-site

Each page you created has the unique friendly SEO URL like /home-page, /home-page/about, /portfolio/article-1...and the page is published, it can be access via those urls

Check it out with other nice features:

Features

  1. Page Types, Page Template, Page Properties
  2. Block Types, Block Template, Block Properties
  3. Media management: Upload multi files (images, doc, pdf, ...), resizing image, drag and drop...
  4. Friendly URL
  5. SEO (using Angular Universal)
  6. Multi site
  7. Modules architecture for extend the Admin UI

and last but most important: the site you build with Angular CMS is actually the Angular App, it mean it is Angular from router, render, .... You will only work with Angular.

However, it still need a storage to store data, right?. Angular CMS uses the API system which was built by ExpressJS (NodeJS framework) and MongoDB (using mongoose as ORM)

How to setup for development

Setup Npm Symlinks

For running examples, we need set up the symlinks between modules as below:

  1. Go to cms-api folders and run command
    npm install
    npm link
    npm run build
  1. Go to cms-server folder and run commands
    npm link @angular-cms/api

Run in Dev Mode

  1. First step, under cms-server folder, run the command
    npm install
    npm run dev

If you have the issue installing such as the @angular-cms/api package is not found, temporary remove it in package.json, run install command then add it again

This command will run script to connect to mongo db, so make sure you have the correct path to your db. For example, in my local, I have the db path like as D:/ProgramData/MongoDB/data/db

    mongod --dbpath D:/ProgramData/MongoDB/data/db

If you install the MongoDB and run it as the service in Window, you can skip this step

  1. After the MongDb instance running, you can use the example data under the resources/db/dump/angularcms using the MongoDb command mongorestore to backup these collections

For example, under the resources/db folder, run command line

mongorestore  dump/

to restore from a dump directory to a local mongod instance running on port 27017:

  1. Final step, under cms folder, run the command sequentially
    npm install
    ng build core
    ng build modules
    ng build portal
    npm run dev

Make sure you installed Angular CLI with --global

Run Angular Universal (SSR) in Dev mode

    npm install
    ng build core
    ng build modules
    ng build portal
    ng build
    ng run cms-demo:server

Copy three folders dist\core, dist\modules and dist\portal into cms\node_modules\@angular-cms folder then run this script to start Server Site Render

    npm run start:ssr

If there is any change these libs core or modules or portal need to run build for each lib again then run

ng run cms-demo:server

and start server site again
