Module Description

AngularJS + Zurb Foundation + Yeoman = ♥

This is a scaffold for the AngularJS application powered by Zurb Foundation CSS3 framework. Everything's wrapped up with Yeoman's magic.

Getting started

If you setting it up for the first time, use the following script:

$ ./

It will check if you have all the required commands installed, and later will install all the local dependencies from package.json (via npm) file and javascript libraries from compontent.json (via bower).


It's pretty simple and straightforward. Everything about your application will go to app directory and your tests to test. Compiled website will be saved in gitignored dist directory.

Adding dependencies

To install new development dependencies use npm. Don't forget to add them to package.json file.

Installing javascript components

To install new javascript libraries use bower. Javascript components will be installed to app/components/[component-name] directory. Also, don't forget to add them to component.json file.

If you want to use new javascript library in your application, simply load it via script HTML tag in build:js section of app/index.html file.

Grunt tasks

Use grunt to perform all the tasks. For example to run tests call:

$ grunt test

If you want to run server, simply call:

$ grunt server

Etc. etc... All the available commands are listed in Gruntfile.js and are generally default ones provided by Yeoman!

Editor configuration

Your editor or IDE should follow indentation rules described in .editorconfig dotfile.

Cool stuff

There's couple of cool extensions powering up this application. Here's the short description of each of them:

Font Awesome

App has Font Awesome installed by default, so you can enjoy beautiful, scalable icons in your application.

I18n service

AngularJS' internationalization sucks, like a lot. Generally I think that everything else but Gettext sucks, so here I added a sorta gettext-like I18n module. You can define your translations in app/locales/{locale-id}.json file, like this pl.json for example:

    "How are you, {{name}}?": "Jak się masz, {{name}}?"
    "Are you {} years old?": {
        "one": "Masz roczek?",
        "few": "Masz {} lata?",
        "many": "Masz {} lat?"

Then you can easily use your translations in the views:

<h1 t="How are you, {{name}}?">How are you, John?</h1>
<p t="Are you {} years old?" count="age"></p>

Neat, isn't it?

Multiple layouts.

Multiple layouts and partials has been resolved simply by using ng-include. Shortly, don't use ng-view in your app, neither set templateUrl in your routes. If you wanna define a route do it this way:

$routeProvider.when('/hello', {
    templates: { main: 'views/hello.html', 'sideNav': 'views/hello_nav.html },
    layout: 'views/layouts/homepage.html }

So as you can see, you can set many views. You can also set layout for the particular page. If you will specify the layout then views/layouts/default.html will be used.

In your views you include templates this way:

<div ng-include src="templates.main"></div>
<div ng-include src="templates.sideNav"></div>

One more thing worth to know about layouts - all should be handled by LayoutCtrl:

<div ng-controller="LayoutCtrl">
  <h1>Hello World!</h1>
  <div ng-include src="templates.main"></div>

Controller to handle final partials should be set the same way, inline in those partials.
