Angular UI Components for ManageIQ
The purpose of this repository is to provide reusable components for the ManageIQ project. These are not general purpose components, but specific to ManageIQ, however, reusable across all of ManageIQ (providers). The intention is to provide components that are reusable in various ways. Many of these components are 'Smart Components' that know how to communicate to backend endpoints(data-driven by provider) and retrieve relevant data for the component's configuration.
As we achieve greater reuse, the idea is to move more and more components to this repository. Creating a repository for smart reusable components (specific to a domain) across providers.
- Separate git repository from ManageIQ
- Components communicate via REST with ManageIQ API
- Maintain routing inside ManageIQ (routes.rb)
- Angular 1.5+ (soon to be Angular 2.x)
Angular 1.5 Components
We are recommending Angular 1.5 Components instead of Angular Directives for better compatibility and easier upgrade to Angular 2.0.
For a great overview of using Angular 1.5.x Components please see: NG-Conf 2016: Components, Components, Components!...and Angular 1.5 - Pete Bacon Darwin
You need to have installed Node.js >= 6 and npm >= 3 on your system.
It is recommended to use a node version manager such as n. If you have node installed then it is
yarn global add n and then
n lts to use the latest LTS version of node (see the docs for switching versions).
Install these node packages globally in the system
npm install -g yarn yarn global add webpack wiredep-cli typescript typescript-formatter
After yarn is installed, it is pretty much a replacement for npm, with faster, more dependable builds but still utilizing the npm packages.
See comparison: npm vs. yarn commands
Install local node dependencies
Create library dependencies (run this every time you make any changes to
vendor.ts) - no need to worry about any TS
errors. Also, if you are pushing some changes please run this command so you will push minifed version of JS and CSS.
yarn run build
To run tests:
yarn yarn run build-dev yarn run test
Before submitting code, run the following command to format the code according to the tslint rules:
This formats the code according to the tslint rules.
If you want to see documentation for each component, controller, filter, etc. run
yarn run-script build-docs
This will generate docs from JS docs and after running
yarn start this documentation will be available on
If you want to release ui-components look at documentation in Wiki of this repository.
