Install with npm:

npm install --save

Or alternatively bower:

bower install --save

Distribution bundle

  • dist/date-of-birth-or-age.js
  • dist/date-of-birth-or-age.min.js
  • dist/date-of-birth-or-age.templates.js (default)
  • dist/date-of-birth-or-age.templates.min.js

Then simply add as dependencies somewhere in your project that makes sense and you're good to go.

A note on wiredep

If you're using wiredep dist/date-of-birth-or-age.template.js will be injected by default. If you don't want that to happen you'll like want to employ something along the following lines in your Gruntfile:

wiredep: {
  options: {
    exclude: [

Then you're free to include whichever bundle you prefer in what ever manner you prefer.


<html ng-app="dobExample">
    <title>Back Button Example</title>
    <script src="bower_components/angular/angular.js"></script>
    <script src="bower_components/"></script>
      var app = angular.module('dobExample', [

      app.controller('MyCtrl', function($scope) {
        $scope.person = {
          birthYear: '',
          birthMonth: '',
          birthDay: '',
          age: {
            years: '',
            months: ''
    <div ng-controller="MyCtrl">
      <eha-date-of-birth-or-age model="person"></eha-date-of-birth-or-age>



  • Firefox (for running test suite)
  • node (0.12.0)
  • bower (1.3.12)
  • grunt-cli (0.1.7)
  • grunt (0.4.5)


# Fork the upstream repo on github and pull down your fork
git clone
# change into project folder
# Add the upstream as a remote
git remote add upstream
# Install the dev dependencies
npm install


Code should be documented following the guidelines set out by jsdoc and ngdoc. We can then leverage Dgeni or something simlary to generate documentation in any format we like.

Test Suite

The test suite is configured to run in Firefox and is powered by:

  • Karma
  • Mocha
  • Chai (as promised)
  • Sinon (chai)

The library is conducive to TDD. grunt test:watch is your friend. As modules (and templates) are exposed on their own namespace you can easily isolate areas of the code base for true unit testing without being forced to pull in the whole library or stub/mock modules irrelevant to the feature(s) you're testing.

Running Tests

Single run
grunt test
grunt test:watch

Transpiling templates (html2js)

Transpiling our html templates into js allows us to neatly push them into the $templateCache.

To transpile the templates it's another simple grunt command:

grunt templates

This will compile the templates to the dist/ folder. But it's probably best to avoid this all together. Both the grunt test and grunt release commands take care of all of this for you.

If you need to override the default template, simply replace what's already in the $templateCache with what ever you want. One way to achieve this is like this:

<script id="templates/date-of-birth-or-age.directive.tpl.html" type="text/html">
  // Your markup here
