AngularJS largeAt Devoxx 2012 I attended the AngularJS presentation by Igor Minar and Misko Hevery. I was very enthusiastic about the capabilities of this front-end framework. Therefore I started experimenting with it. I created a sample for the Axon Framework, read more about it here. After my experiments I felt confident enough to start using it in real projects. One of them was adding management reporting using the HighCharts library.

The next step was a bigger project, writing an Elasticsearch plugin to query your Elasticsearch instance. This project has to integrate with a javascript library to interact with Elasticsearch. The layout and other front-end components were implemented using Twitter Bootstrap. Therefore I also used another AngularJS plugin to integrate with Bootstrap.

In this blog post I’ll give you some lessons learned with respect to AngularJS.

Basic Axon Framework sample using vert.x and angular.js

Some people on the Axon Framework mailing list were asking for more basic samples, preferably using something like vert.x. Since I am familiar with Axon as well as vert.x I thought I could help out. Therefore I have created a very basic application based on vert.x using the Axon Framework. The application is all about maintaining a list of TODO items. These items are shared between all connected web browsers. You have to be able to create a new TODO item and you have to be able to mark them as completed.

During my visit of Devoxx I learned about a front-end framework called AngularJS. This is a very nice addition to the vert.x technology stack. Since I always use Bootstrap for my front-end work, the front-end should look familiar to a lot of you. The following images shows the end result of the application. If you want to know how I created the sample, read on.
