    The Angular-Suave generator

    A Yeoman generator for AngularJS and Suave.

    Suave is an F#-based micro-framework. For AngularJS integration with other micro-frameworks, see


    Install Git, node.js, NuGet, F#, and Visual Studio for Windows or Mono for Linux/Mac OS X. The development mode also requires SQLite.

    Install Yeoman:

    npm install -g yo

    Install the Angular-Suave generator:

    npm install -g generator-angular-suave

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

    Creating a Suave service

    In a new directory, generate the service:

    yo angular-suave

    Install dependencies for Windows:

    nuget.exe restore

    or for Mono:

    mono --runtime=v4.0 nuget.exe restore

    Build and run the service for Windows:


    or for Mono:

    mono [Myapp]/bin/Debug/[Myapp].exe

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

    Creating a persistent entity

    Generate the entity:

    yo angular-suave: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.

    Build and run the service for Windows:


    or for Mono:

    mono [Myapp]/bin/Debug/[Myapp].exe

    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 Suave 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.


    npm i generator-angular-suave
