Since the first release of our ng2-combobox components for Angular the repository is still lacking a decent documentation on how to use the component if you are not that familiar with Angular. This blog post should give you some insights on how to set up the combobox component in an Angular application. If you haven't yet set up an Angular application yourself it is as simple as typing the following command:
Recently I gave ionic a try. Ionic is a "open source front-end SDK for developing amazing mobile apps with web technologies". Since there is also a ionic generator for yeoman it was rather easy to scaffold a project from scratch. It was just a matter of running these two commands to get the generator installed and a new ionic project set-up (assuming you already have yeoman running):
Recently in an AngularJS project we used the ngTagsInput directive for AngularJS. In the documentation it is shown how to set-up your own function to load the data for the autocomplete functionality. Since our API returned the data in a way that ngTagsInput did not expected it, I needed a way to convert or extract the data before returning it to ngTagInput. It turned out to be quite easy:
A couple of weeks ago I blogged about my experiment with Grails and AngularJS. When I deployed the application "in production" I realized that I needed to change the Urls for accessing the Grails backend. In development mode Grails is running in an own Tomcat instance on a different port, while in production the Grails backend and the AngularJS frontend application are both served from the same Tomcat instance. In fact, both parts get exported to one .war file. After a bit of research I came across the grunt-ng-constant task which is named to be a "plugin for dynamic generation of angular constant modules". Sounds like what I needed ;)
Recently I wanted to dig a bit into Grails which is a full stack web application framework for the JVM. Grails "takes advantage of the Groovy programming language and convention over configuration to provide a productive and stream-lined development experience".
