    AngularJS directive for the bootstrap-switch jQuery plugin.



    $ bower install angular-bootstrap-switch


    $ npm install angular-bootstrap-switch

    This will install AngularJS, jQuery, and the original bootstrap-switch.


    To be able to use the directive, you need to register the angular-bootstrap-switch module as a dependency:

    angular.module('yourModule', ['frapontillo.bootstrap-switch'
        // other dependencies


    The directive can work on both element and attribute levels. The following example contains all of the supported attributes:

        switch-active="{{ isActive }}"
        switch-readonly="{{ isReadonly }}"
        switch-size="{{ size }}"
        switch-animate="{{ animate }}"
        switch-label="{{ label }}"
        switch-icon="{{ icon }}"
        switch-on-text="{{ onLabel }}"
        switch-off-text="{{ offLabel }}"
        switch-on-color="{{ on }}"
        switch-off-color="{{ off }}"
        switch-radio-off="{{ radioOff }}"
        switch-label-width="{{ labelWidth }}"
        switch-handle-width="{{ handleWidth }}"
        switch-inverse="{{ inverse }}"

    Short doc for all of the attributes:

    • ng-model, the value to bind the switch to
    • type, has to be one of checkbox and radio. This value is mandatory and must be a string, as it cannot be changed once set (see this answer on StackOverflow). If you choose radio, be sure to follow the AngularJS radio specs, meaning you have to specify the same ngModel and a different value or ng-value attribute for each radio
    • switch-active, determines if the switch is enabled or not (changes the inner input's disabled attribute)
    • switch-readonly, determines if the switch is read-only or not (changes the inner input's readonly attribute)
    • switch-size, can be the empty string as default, mini, small, large
    • switch-animate, determines if the switch animates when toggled
    • switch-on-text, sets the positive (checked) text
    • switch-off-text, sets the negative (unchecked) text
    • switch-on-color, sets the positive (checked) class, can be primary (as default), default, info, success, warning, danger
    • switch-off-color, sets the negative (unchecked) class, can be default (as default), primary, info, success, warning, danger
    • switch-label, sets the toggle label
    • switch-icon, sets the toggle icon (e.g. icon-save)
    • switch-wrapper, sets the main container class, use a falsy value to fall back to the default one
    • switch-radio-off, allows a radio button to be unchecked by the user (from true to false)
    • switch-label-width, sets the width of the middle label
    • switch-handle-width, sets the width of both handles
    • switch-inverse, inverts the on/off handles
    • switch-change, evaluates an expression whenever the model value changes. Instead, ng-change will fire when view value changes (e.g from a click)

    Migrating from bootstrap-switch~2

    Read the CHANGELOG information to learn what's different in 0.3.0.


    The example folder shows a simple working demo of the switch.


    IE8 requires you to attach the directive to an <input type="checkbox"> or <input type="radio">. Due to some incompatibilities it is not possible to use a custom tag or div instead.


    Test and build

    To build the directive yourself you need to have NodeJS. Then do the following:

    $ npm install -g grunt-cli bower karma
    $ npm install
    $ bower install
    $ grunt test-travis
    $ grunt build
