AngularJS directives for PatternFly

This project will provide a set of common AngularJS directives for use with the PatternFly reference implementation.

Getting started

You have to install required software before you're able to use grunt:

  • Install Node.js - Find more information on Node.js

    Angular Patternfly stays up to date with the Node LTS Release Schedule. If you're using Angular Patternfly downstream, we suggest the use of an actively supported version of Node/NPM, although prior versions of Node may work.

  • Install npm - If npm is not already installed with Node.js, you have to install it manually. Find more information on NPM

  • Install Bower globally - Find more information on Bower

      npm install -g bower
  • Install Grunt globally - Find more information on Grunt

      npm install -g grunt-cli
  • Install npm dependencies with:

      npm install
  • Install bower dependencies with:

      bower install

You should have your environment ready now.

Angular-PatternFly can now be built with:

grunt build

Using Angular-PatternFly In Your Application


  1. Add Angular and Angular-PatternFly as dependencies for your project and you'll receive all the libraries you'll need:

     $ bower install angular --save
     $ bower install angular-patternfly --save
  2. Add the core Patternfly CSS and script includes to your HTML file(s):

     Please see:  https://github.com/patternfly/patternfly/blob/master/QUICKSTART.md
  3. Add the following CSS include to your HTML file(s):

     <!-- Angular-PatternFly Styles -->
     <link rel="stylesheet" href="bower_components/angular-patternfly/dist/styles/angular-patternfly.min.css" />
  4. Add the following script includes to your HTML file(s), adjusting where necessary to pull in only what you need:

     <!-- Angular -->
     <script src="bower_components/angular/angular.min.js"></script>
     <!-- Angular-Bootstrap -->
     <script src="bower_components/angular-bootstrap/ui-bootstrap.min.js"></script>
     <script src="bower_components/angular-bootstrap/ui-bootstrap-tpls.min.js"></script>
     <!-- Angular-Sanitize -->
     <script src="bower_components/angular-sanitize/angular-sanitize.min.js"></script>
     <!-- Angular-PatternFly  -->
     <script src="bower_components/angular-patternfly/dist/angular-patternfly.min.js"></script>
     <!-- C3, D3 - Charting Libraries. Only required if you are using the 'patternfly.charts' module-->
     <script src="bower_components/patternfly/components/c3/c3.min.js"></script>
     <script src="bower_components/patternfly/components/d3/d3.min.js"></script>
  5. (optional) The 'patternfly.charts' module is not a dependency in the default angular 'patternfly' module. In order to use patternfly charts you must add 'patternfly.charts' as a dependency in your application:

     angular.module('myApp', [

API documentation

The API documentation can be built with:

grunt ngdocs

If you're interested in reading the docs right away, you can use special target, which will start a web server:

grunt ngdocs:view

After executing this tasks you'll be able to access the documentation at http://localhost:8000/. If a different port is desired, it may be specified on as an option:

grunt ngdocs:view --port=8002


Angular PatternFly is released through Bower. To release a new version version of Angular PatternFly, edit bower.json and package.json accordingly.

Update the version listed in bower.json by editing the file and changing the line:

"version": "<new_version>"

Update the patternfly reference version listed in bower.json by editing the file and changing the line below. Angular patternfly has a dependency on the patternfly reference implementation so the major and minor version numbers of the two project should be the same:

"patternfly": "<new_version>"

Update the version listed in package.json by editing the file and changing the line:

"version": "<new_version>"

Commit the version bump:

git commit -m "Version bump to <new_version>"

Publish a new set of release notes with new version as the tag version: https://github.com/patternfly/angular-patternfly/releases/new
