The Angular-Scotty generator

A Yeoman generator for AngularJS and Scotty.

Scotty is a Haskell-based micro-framework. For AngularJS integration with other micro-frameworks, see


Install Git, node.js, Haskell, GHC 7.8.2, and Cabal 1.18. The development mode also requires SQLite.

Install Yeoman:

npm install -g yo

Install the Angular-Scotty generator:

npm install -g generator-angular-scotty

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

Creating a Scotty service

In a new directory, generate the service:

yo angular-scotty

Create the cabal sandbox and install dependencies:

cabal sandbox init
cabal install

Run the service:

cabal run Main

Your service will run at http://localhost:3000.

Creating a persistent entity

Generate the entity:

yo angular-scotty:entity [myentity]

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

  • a name
  • a type (String, Integer, Float, 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

Files that are regenerated will appear as conflicts. Allow the generator to overwrite these files as long as no custom changes have been made.

Run the service:

cabal run Main

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 Scotty service running at http://localhost:3000.

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.
