FAQ

Why generator-ng-super?

generator-ng-super is a heavily opinionated project that has been initiated to contain mix of best practices learned through courses and expirience.

It also contains a mix of packages which are best in the business pre-configured into the application structure like Angular UI's Twitter Bootstrap Directives, Angular UI's UI-Router (replacing ngRoute) and Martin Gonto's Restangular (replacing $http and $resource).

The main purpose of generator-ng-super was to encapsulate the best from the industry experts and make it ready for use.

Why the chosen directory structure and code pattern?

The directory structure has been chosen to ease readability and search for code while keeping the directory structure flat. It corresponds to John Papa's LIFT principle of code organization.

  • L - Locate your code easily
  • I - Identify code at a glance
  • F - Flat structure as long as we can
  • T - Try to stay DRY

What am I getting out of the box?

generator-ng-super will provide a complete running Angular JS application with all the goodies like sample code, tests and packages setup in a few mins. Each sub-generator for the components provides sample code enabling the developer to get straight down to business of writing code, all the other setup configuration and code is taken care of by the generator.

Why Angular UI Router instead of ngRoute?

UI-Router contains all the missing features from the ngRouter. Visit Angular UI Router for further insight.

Why Restangular instead of $http or $resource?

Restangular provides tons of goodies through which you can setup your HTTP requests in a very intuitive way. Visit Restangular for further insight.
