scully-plugin-disable-angular

This postRenderer plugin for Scully removes the static assets that bootstrap the Angular application. Optionally you can also remove the dynamic transfer state from the HTML.

If you are only using Angular to build a static / informational website with little extra functionality it could be overkill to still use Angular on the frontend.

Disabling Angular on the frontend will speed up your loading times and mobile scores even more!

Installation

To install this library with npm run

$ npm install scully-plugin-disable-angular --save-dev

or with yarn

$ yarn add scully-plugin-disable-angular

Usage

Import and add the plugin to the defaultPostRenderers to execute it on all rendered pages or use the postRenderers on a route configuration to execute it for a specific route:

Important: the current implementation of Scully is that if you provide a postRenderers option on a route level, it will ignore the configuration of the defaultPostRenderers option at the root level of the config.

For more information, check out: https://github.com/scullyio/scully/issues/595

const {RouteTypes} = require('@scullyio/scully');
const {DisableAngular} = require('scully-plugin-disable-angular');
 
const postRenderers = [DisableAngular];
 
exports.config = {
  projectRoot: './src/app',
  defaultPostRenderers: postRenderers,  // for all routes
  routes: {
    '/blog/:slug': {
      type: RouteTypes.contentFolder,
      slug: {
        folder: "./blog"
      },
      postRenderers: postRenderers      // per route config
    },
  }
};

Now build your app with the --stats-json flag enabled as the plugin needs to know which assets have been build for your app. Then just run the Scully command.

npm run build -- --prod --stats-json
npm run scully

Clearing dynamic state

When disabling Angular in your prerendered pages there is no point in keeping the dynamic state serialized in your HTML. By providing the option removeState to the configuration the plugin will remove this state from the HTML.

const {RouteTypes, setPluginConfig} = require('@scullyio/scully');
const {DisableAngular} = require('scully-plugin-disable-angular');
 
const postRenderers = [DisableAngular];
 
setPluginConfig(DisableAngular, 'render', {
  removeState: true
});
 
exports.config = {
  projectRoot: './src/app',
  defaultPostRenderers: postRenderers,  // for all routes
  routes: {
    '/blog/:slug': {
      type: RouteTypes.contentFolder,
      slug: {
        folder: "./blog"
      },
      postRenderers: postRenderers      // per route config
    },
  }
};
