Module Description

sailsjs-angularjs-bootstrap-example

A suite of examples written for Sails.js, AngularJS, and Twitter Bootstrap.

Contents:

  • A REST API test page using Sails' transport agnostic routing (HTTP vs. Socket.io)
  • A "Todo List" app demo using Sails' Socket.io messaging and REST Blueprints
  • Passport middleware authentication integrated with Sails policies.
  • Twitter Bootstrap / Font Awesome custom LESS compiles (Grunt)
  • Cache busting JS/CSS for production (Grunt)

If there other examples you would like to see, feel free to create a GitHub issue.

Notes

(as of May 5, 2014)

Updated to latest Sails.js version 0.9.16 and added some fixes for error handling.

The config/500.js file has changed to include a 4th parameter to notify express' middleware that it is an error handler. Several jade files have also been edited to remove the !!! deprecated doctype. This fixes the html views for 404 and 500 error pages, as well as the oddity I had seen in January with 500 errors on the API test page. The 403 forbidden errors are still inconsistent between HTTP and Socket modes (???).

(as of Jan 7, 2014)

Be wary, this repo has been quickly hacked together as a Sails.js/AngularJS learning project. Do not consider it as production-ready code.

REST API example page (see assets/linker/js/controllers/restCtrl.js)

This API test page was primarily made to exercise the error handling of REST calls between HTTP and Socket modes (404, 403, 500 errors). I am currently seeing some odd behavior when throwing 500 application errors, and when 403 forbidden errors are triggered from policy configurations. The results are not consistent between modes. More research is needed.

Todo List app demo (see assets/linker/js/controllers/todoCtrl.js)

This demo was written to explore how the socket.io connection, comet messages, and auto-subscriptions work in Sails. The AngularJS TodoMVC examples were used a bit for reference. The Sails socket.io code, which is provided during creation of a new Sails project, was refactored into an Angular service (see assets/linker/js/angular-sails.io.js). It contains custom retry logic that first sends a $http.get() request to the server for obtaining the security token cookie, otherwise you may encounter the 500 error: "handshake error" when restarting your local server (See bottom of: FAQ).

If you stop the server or cause a network disconnect when on the example pages, you should see some alert modals pop up. These are managed by SailsSocketCtrl (see assets/linker/js/controllers/sailsSocketCtrl.js) for reuse across examples.

Passport Integration

Credit goes to this gist and its many forks.

You can log in using the dummy user/pass: test/test123.

Here are the files that were touched:

api/controllers/PassportAuthController.js
api/models/User.js
api/policies/isPassportAuthenticated.js
config/bootstrap.js
config/express.js
config/policies.js
config/routes.js
views/passportauth/login.jade
views/passportauth/protected.jade

Grunt changes

The Sails.js asset grunt tasks have been reconfigured to allow Twitter Bootstrap and Font Awesome custom compiles (see /assets/linker/styles/*.less). The grunt copy task has also been reconfigured to include other Bower-managed client-side libraries.
