About Mangol

Mangol is an open source library for combining Angular2 and OpenLayers3 to create modern, responsive interactive web maps (M stands for maps, ang for Angular and ol for OpenLayers). The project has been created using angular-cli, a command-line tool for Angular2 projects. The project is written in TypeScript and uses SCSS for styling. It has been built with Angular2 (2.2.3) and TypeScript2 (2.0.10). The packaging is done via Webpack module bundler.

Formerly, Mangol was called ng2ol3 and was based on SystemJS and without angular-cli.


Node.js with npm is required. The preferenced version of Node.js is 6.9.1 LTS, the preferenced version of npm is 4.x.x. After git clone, navigate to the main directory and run npm install to download all dependencies.

Live example

An online example can be opened here.

Use as source

If you wish to see the built-in demos or modify the source files, simply run ng serve to load the demo page on localhost:4200. With this command you can also watch file changes until you shut it down.

Use as npm library

If you would like to use Mangol as an npm library in your Angular2 (TypeScript) project, you can also do that since Mangol is on npm as well.

First, add Mangol as a dependency to your project:

npm install mangol --save 

You have to add to your app.module.ts (or whatever you call it in your project, the one that gets bootstrapped in main.ts)

import {MangolModule} from 'mangol/index';

And in @NgModule add MangolModule to the imports:

imports: [

After that, you can use Mangol html tags in your templates such as


This is the simplest implementation of Mangol in a component (this will create a default map with zoom buttons and with one OpenStreetMap layer) :

import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    selector: 'app-root',
    template: `
export class DemoMapComponent {

You also have to add some vendor css/scss & js files. If you use Webpack and created your project with angular-cli, add the following libraries to you angular-cli.json:


If you use SystemJS add the files above in a regular way to your index.html (with link and script tags).

Present & Future

This project is still very new and therefore it contains only a couple of components (widgets), most of them are under heavy development. In the near future I intend to add/extend other widgets. More examples will arrive as soon as the project becomes smarter.
