    Angular Scaffold

    Simple scaffolding for AngularJS

    Angular Scaffold is a collection of convenience wrappers around angular-model collections.


    Running unit tests

    Install the test runner with npm:

    npm install

    You can then run the tests with Gulp:


    You can run coverage with:

    gulp coverage

    angular-scaffold API docs

    See /docs/ in this project for detailed documentation of all angular-scaffold's functions.

    Supporting angular-scaffold in your API

    Your API must:

    • Use and interpret HTTP headers correctly (e.g. HTTP PUT, POST, GET and DELETE)
    • Consume and return json
    • Supply a $links collection containing a self key, e.g.:
            "$links": {
                "self": {
                    "href": "/api/posts/postaa"
            "name":"Post A",
            "body":"Some content for Post A"

    Basic Usage

    In your AngularJS application, include the JavaScript:

    // your specific paths may vary
    <script src="node_modules/radify/angular-model.js"></script>
    <script src="node_modules/radify/angular-scaffold.js"></script>

    In your app configuration, state a dependency on Angular Model and Angular Scaffold:

    angular.module('myApp', [

    Example controller using Angular Scaffold:

    .controller('PostsController', function($scope, scaffold) {
        angular.extend($scope, {
            posts: scaffold('Posts', {})

    Basic CRUD example project

    An example application is included in this repository. It has a very simple API that illustrates a basic use case for angular-scaffold.

    To install and run the sample project:

    cd sample-project
    npm install
    node server.js

    You can then browse to http://localhost:4730/ and add/remove Post objects from a list. angular-scaffold takes care of talking to the API for you.


    angular-scaffold can paginate your model. Your API will need to support the Range: resources=n-n header to take advantage of this. For example, Range: resources=10-20 would return resources 10 through 20.

    scaffold('Shares', {
    paginate: { size: 20, page: 1, strategy: 'paged' }


    You can pass a specific query in, which will be sent through to the API. Your API will have to know how to respond to this.

    scaffold('Comments', {
      query: {
        offline: $scope.selected._id

    You can also pass in an ordering parameter. Again, your API will have to know what to do with it.

    return scaffold('Shares', {
      query: { to: true, order: { _id: 'desc'} }


    npm i angular-scaffold
