Yeoman generator for AngularJS with a PHP backend. Based on generator-angular. /api is redirected by grunt-connect-proxy to the PHP built-in server using grunt-php
Based on generator-angular. Adds
/app/api folder containing a sample RESTful PHP API. The API is available under
/api URL. `During development, the PHP API is served by
PHP built-in web server
and integrated seamlessly into the existing connect
configuration. Integration is done with grunt-connect-proxy
npm install -g generator-angular-php
Make a new directory, and
cd into it:
mkdir my-new-project && cd $_
yo angular-php, optionally passing an app name:
yo angular-php [app-name]
grunt for building and
grunt serve for preview
app/api directory, run
make install to update Composer dependencies.
- angular-php (aka angular-php:app)
Note: Generators are to be run from the root directory of your app.
Sets up a new AngularJS app, generating all the boilerplate you need to get started. The app generator also optionally installs Bootstrap and additional AngularJS modules, such as angular-resource (installed by default).
Generates a controller and view, and configures a route in
app/scripts/app.js connecting them.
yo angular-php:route myroute
This is the myroute view
Explicitly provide route URI
yo angular-php:route myRoute --uri=my/route
Produces controller and view as above and adds a route to
Generates a controller in
yo angular-php:controller user
Generates a directive in
yo angular-php:directive myDirective
angularmodule'myMod'directive'myDirective'returntemplate: '<div></div>'restrict: 'E'link:elementtext'this is the myDirective directive';;;
Generates a filter in
yo angular-php:filter myFilter
angularmodule'myMod'filter'myFilter'returnreturn 'myFilter filter:' + input;;;
Generates an HTML view file in
yo angular-php:view user
This is the user view
Generates an AngularJS service.
yo angular-php:service myService
You can also do
yo angular-php:value, and
yo angular-php:constant for other types of services.
Generates an AngularJS service decorator.
yo angular-php:decorator serviceName
angularmodule'myMod'config$providedecorator'serviceName'// ...return $delegate;;;
In general, these options can be applied to any generator, though they only affect generators that produce scripts.
For generators that output scripts, the
yo angular-php:controller user --coffee
Related Issue #452: This option has been removed from the generator. Initially it was needed as ngMin was not entirely stable. As it has matured, the need to keep separate versions of the script templates has led to extra complexity and maintenance of the generator. By removing these extra burdens, new features and bug fixes should be easier to implement. If you are dependent on this option, please take a look at ngMin and seriously consider implementing it in your own code. It will help reduce the amount of typing you have to do (and look through) as well as make your code cleaner to look at.
By default, generators produce unannotated code. Without annotations, AngularJS's DI system will break when minified. Typically, these annotations that make minification safe are added automatically at build-time, after application files are concatenated, but before they are minified. The annotations are important because minified code will rename variables, making it impossible for AngularJS to infer module names based solely on function parameters.
The recommended build process uses
ngmin, a tool that automatically adds these annotations. However, if you'd rather not use
ngmin, you have to add these annotations manually yourself. **One thing to note is that
ngmin does not produce minsafe code for things that are not main level elements like controller, services, providers, etc.:
will need to be manually done like so:
resolve:User: 'myService'return MyService;
By default, new scripts are added to the index.html file. However, this may not always be suitable. Some use cases:
- Manually added to the file
- Auto-added by a 3rd party plugin
- Using this generator as a subgenerator
To skip adding them to the index, pass in the skip-add argument:
yo angular-php:service serviceName --skip-add
The following packages are always installed by the app generator:
The following additional modules are available as components on bower, and installable via
All of these can be updated with
bower update as new versions of AngularJS are released.
Yeoman generated projects can be further tweaked according to your needs by modifying project files appropriately.
You can change the
app directory by adding a
appPath property to
bower.json. For instance, if you wanted to easily integrate with Express.js, you could add the following:
This will cause Yeoman-generated client-side files to be placed in
grunt test will run the unit tests with karma.

When submitting an issue, please follow the guidelines. Especially important is to make sure Yeoman is up-to-date, and providing the command or commands that cause the issue.
When submitting a PR, make sure that the commit messages match the AngularJS conventions.
When submitting a bugfix, write a test that exposes the bug and fails before applying your fix. Submit the test alongside the fix.
When submitting a new feature, add tests that cover the feature.
