Looking for an easy way to kick-start your Angular app development in under a minute? Now you can with HotTowel.Angular, a free NuGet package (and soon to become a Bower package too). What do you get? Let’s take a look …


What's Inside?

There are a few libraries out of the box that come with HotTowel.Angular. Of course Angular is in here, but there are a few others I bundled into this package as they work very well together and I find myself wanting them in most apps. They help add a bit of style, theming, and helpers.

  • Angular core library
  • Angular's routing module
  • Angular's animation module
  • Twitter Bootstrap for layout
  • FontAwesome icons

Code Kick-Start

Adding some libraries is a convenience, but one of the first things that helps me get going with an app is to get the basic structure laid out. So I included what I have found to be most helpful in kick-starting my apps. I think you’ll find that this code will help you get out of the gate quickly and you can customize it any way you like. Here is a glimpse of just some of what you will find. You can learn more about the structure of the app by reading this post.

  • Responsive Design with Custom CSS
  • Dashboard Structure
  • Multiple Views and Menu Structure
  • Spinner
  • Logging
  • Splash Page
  • Alerts via Toastr
  • Structured Code

Easy Peasy

It’s super simple to install HotTowel.Angular. Use the NuGet Package Manager Console and go!

Install-Package HotTowel.Angular

I hope you all enjoy HotTowel.Angular!
