Ask HN: Any good Angular open source projects for looking at their code?
64 points by heliodor 264 days ago | past | web | 24 comments
I'm looking for projects that are based on Angular and have good practices, follow guidelines, etc. A project where it can be educational to look at their Angular code.



For beginning structures, and if you're comfortable with java/spring, jhipster sets up working angular apps (consuming web service backends) with what they believe are best practices.

While not the largest project, TodoMVC was written just for that:

hardcore angular user here- the best combo i've found is reading this:

https://github.com/johnpapa/angular-styleguide

and using this:

https://github.com/Swiip/generator-gulp-angular

-----


I would second on John Papa's style guide. And would add that he has excellent ng-demoes: https://github.com/johnpapa/ng-demos

-----


While mentioning John Papa's style guide its worth mentioning Todd Motto's one that has some similarities and is as good. Worth reading both.https://github.com/toddmotto/angularjs-styleguide

-----


Taiga is Project Management app based on Django and Angular. https://github.com/taigaio/taiga-back

-----


I really liked this style guide. https://github.com/johnpapa/angular-styleguide

https://github.com/angular/material

Google's implementation of Material Design in Angular. Excellent examples of complex, accessible and well-documented components implemented on top of Angular 1.

-----


Some ideas here:

AFAIK none of them are opensource.

Take a look at the Ionic framework source:

https://github.com/driftyco/ionic

-----


The Ionic framework is not a good source base to look at for regular apps.

I'm a huge fan of the Ionic framework, but it's sourcecode is a mess and even the good parts are usually complex implementations of things you would definitely not be doing (such as keeping view state live, overriding default elements etc...)

-----


Overriding default elements and managing view state both seem pretty common in non-trivial applications.

-----


Overriding default elements isn't very common, I think. Most apps just need to style elements not provide different functionality (which can usually be gained by simply creating a new directive).

In regards to managing view states, then yes it's very common,but you don't usually write those yourself, you use things like Ionic (or ui-router).

-----


Related - I'm working on learning better Angular for my new job, where we're using it heavily. I'm a little surprised how few open-source projects using it are out there, considering how popular it seems to be. Does anybody have any idea why? It is mostly popular for internal corporate apps or something?

Check out loopback-angular-admin, which creates an admin interface on a Loopback 2.x API, nicely splitting the Angular parts into controllers, services and directives:

-----


you can try AngJobs, which is a job board for angularjs developers written in angular and C#

https://github.com/victorantos/AngJobs

-----


Obviously :

-----


this is not a very well organized angular app imo

-----


Such is often the case with apps that actually need to and/or get released.
