    angular jsonapi

    CircleCI Codacy Badge npm version Coverage Status

    This is a JSON API library for Angular 6+. Please use [ts-angular-jsonapi]( for AngularJS.

    Online demo

    You can test library on this online example 👌

    demo app

    Data is obtained from Json Api Playground server.

    Supported features

    • Cache (on memory): TTL for collections and resources. Before a HTTP request objects are setted with cached data.
    • Cache on IndexedDB
    • Pagination
    • Sorting
    • Include param support (also, when you save)
    • Equal requests, return a same ResourceObject on memory
    • Default values for a new resource (hydrator).



    Just install, configure and learn with examples.

    First of all, it's advisable to read Jsonapi specification. Understanding JsonApi documents structure is recommended.


    yarn add ngx-jsonapi@2.0.0-rc.4 --save
    # or npm if you wish...

    Dependecies and customization

    1. Add Jsonapi dependency.
    2. Configure your url and other paramemeters.
    • Angular
    /* .. */
    import { NgxJsonapiModule } from 'ngx-jsonapi';
    export class AppModule {
        public constructor() {
                user_config: { url: '//' }
    • React
    import { NgxJsonapiModule } from 'ngx-jsonapi';
    const App = () => {
            user_config: { url: '//' }
        return <div>Hello world</div>;

    Enable Local Cache

    Library cache anything memory. With Local Store, also store all on IndexDb on browser. Faster apps when we reuse a lot of data.

    • Angular
    /* .. */
    import { NgxJsonapiModule } from 'ngx-jsonapi';
    import { StoreService } from 'ngx-jsonapi/sources/store.service';
    import { JsonRipper } from 'ngx-jsonapi/services/json-ripper';
    export class AppModule {
        public constructor() {
                user_config: { url: '//' },
                jsonapiStore: new StoreFakeService(),
                jsonRipper: new JsonRipperFake()
    • React
    import { NgxJsonapiModule } from 'ngx-jsonapi';
    const App = () => {
            user_config: { url: '//' },
            jsonapiStore: new StoreFakeService(),
            jsonRipper: new JsonRipperFake()
        return <div>Hello world</div>;


    Like you know, the better way is with examples. Lets go! 🚀

    Defining a resource


    import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
    import { Autoregister, Service, Resource, DocumentCollection, DocumentResource } from 'ngx-jsonapi';
    import { Book } from '../books/books.service';
    import { Photo } from '../photos/photos.service';
    export class Author extends Resource {
        public attributes = {
            name: 'default name',
            date_of_birth: ''
        public relationships = {
            books: new DocumentCollection<Book>(),
            photo: new DocumentResource<Photo>()
    export class AuthorsService extends Service<Author> {
        public resource = Author;
        public type = 'authors';

    Get a collection of resources


    import { Component } from '@angular/core';
    import { DocumentCollection } from 'ngx-jsonapi';
    import { AuthorsService, Author } from './../authors.service';
        selector: 'demo-authors',
        templateUrl: './authors.component.html'
    export class AuthorsComponent {
        public authors: DocumentCollection<Author>;
        public constructor(private authorsService: AuthorsService) {
                    // include: ['books', 'photos'],
                    // fields: {
                    //     authors: ['name']
                    // }
                .subscribe(authors => (this.authors = authors));

    View for this controller

    <p *ngFor="let author of; trackBy: authors.trackBy">
        id: {{ }} <br />
        name: {{ }} <br />
        birth date: {{ author.attributes.date_of_birth | date }}

    Collection sort

    Example: name is a authors attribute, and makes a query like /authors?sort=name,job_title

    let authors = authorsService.all({
        sort: ['name', 'job_title']

    Collection filtering

    Filter resources with attribute: value values. Filters are used as 'exact match' (only resources with attribute value same as value are returned). value can also be an array, then only objects with same attribute value as one of values array elements are returned.

        remotefilter: { country: 'Argentina' }

    Get a single resource

    From this point, you only see important code for this library. For a full example, clone and see demo directory.


    More options? Include resources when you fetch data (or save!)

    authorsService.get('some_author_id', { include: ['books', 'photos'] });

    TIP: these parameters work with all() and save() methods too.

    Add a new resource

    let author =; = 'Pablo Reyes';
    author.attributes.date_of_birth = '2030-12-10';;

    Need you more control and options?

    let author =; = 'Pablo Reyes';
    author.attributes.date_of_birth = '2030-12-10';
    // some_book is an another resource like author
    let some_book = booksService.get(1);
    // some_publisher is a polymorphic resource named company on this case
    let some_publisher = publishersService.get(1);
    author.addRelationship(some_publisher, 'company');
    // wow, now we need detach a relationship
    author.removeRelationship('books', 'book_id');
    // this library can send include information to server, for atomicity{ include: ['book'] });
    // mmmm, if I need get related resources? For example, books related with author 1
    let relatedbooks = booksService.all({ beforepath: 'authors/1' });
    // you need get a cached object? you can force ttl on get
    let author$ = authorsService.get(
        { ttl: 60 } // ttl on seconds (default: 0)

    Update a resource

    authorsService.get('some_author_id').suscribe(author => { += 'New Name'; => {
            console.log('author saved!');


      // get page 2 of authors collection, with a limit per page of 50
      page: { number: 2 ;  size: 50 }

    Collection page

    • number: number of the current page
    • size: size of resources per page (it's sended to server by url)
    • information returned from server (check if is avaible) total_resources: total of avaible resources on server resources_per_page: total of resources returned per page requested

    Local Demo App

    You can run JsonApi Demo App locally following the next steps:

    git clone
    cd ngx-jsonapi
    yarn start

    We use as backend Json Api Playground.


    Check Environment development file 😉.


    npm i ngx-jsonapi
