    The Angular-Ratpack generator

    A Yeoman generator for AngularJS and Ratpack.

    Ratpack is a Groovy-based micro-framework. For AngularJS integration with other micro-frameworks, see


    Install Git, node.js, JDK 8, and Groovy.

    Install Yeoman:

    npm install -g yo

    Install the Angular-Ratpack generator:

    npm install -g generator-angular-ratpack

    The above prerequisites can be installed to a VM using the Angular-Ratpack provisioner.

    Creating a Ratpack service

    In a new directory, generate the service:

    yo angular-ratpack

    Run the service:

    ./gradlew run

    Your service will run at http://localhost:8080.

    Creating a persistent entity

    Generate the entity:

    yo angular-ratpack:entity [myentity]

    You will be asked to specify attributes for the entity, where each attribute has the following:

    • a name
    • a type (String, Integer, Long, Float, Double, Boolean, Date, Enum)
    • for a String attribute, an optional minimum and maximum length
    • for a numeric attribute, an optional minimum and maximum value
    • for a Date attribute, an optional constraint to either past values or future values
    • for an Enum attribute, a list of enumerated values
    • whether the attribute is required

    Run the service:

    ./gradlew run

    A client-side AngularJS application will now be available by running

    grunt server

    The Grunt server will run at http://localhost:9000. It will proxy REST requests to the Ratpack service running at http://localhost:8080.

    At this point you should be able to navigate to a page to manage your persistent entities.

    The Grunt server supports hot reloading of client-side HTML/CSS/Javascript file changes.
