RealWorld spec and API.Angular codebase containing real world examples (CRUD, auth, advanced patterns, etc) that adheres to the
This codebase was created to demonstrate a fully fledged application built with Angular that interacts with an actual backend server including CRUD operations, authentication, routing, pagination, and more. We've gone to great lengths to adhere to the Angular Styleguide & best practices.
We're currently working on some docs for the codebase (explaining where functionality is located, how it works, etc) but the codebase should be straightforward to follow as is. We've also released a step-by-step tutorial w/ screencasts that teaches you how to recreate the codebase from scratch.
For convenience, we have a live API server running at https://conduit.productionready.io/api for the application to make requests against. You can view the API spec here which contains all routes & responses for the server.
The source code for the backend server (available for Node, Rails and Django) can be found in the main RealWorld repo.
If you want to change the API URL to a local server, simply edit
src/environments/environment.ts and change
api_url to the local server's URL (i.e.
Make sure you have the Angular CLI installed globally. We use Yarn to manage the dependencies, so we strongly recommend you to use it. you can install it from Here, then run
yarn install to resolve all dependencies (might take a minute).
ng serve for a dev server. Navigate to
http://localhost:4200/. The app will automatically reload if you change any of the source files.
ng build to build the project. The build artifacts will be stored in the
dist/ directory. Use the
-prod flag for a production build.
The example application is a social blogging site (i.e. a Medium.com clone) called "Conduit". It uses a custom API for all requests, including authentication. You can view a live demo over at https://angular.realworld.io
