Get Started

Stuck with Foundation for Apps? Try out Angular Base Apps 1.2.6 as a drop-in replacement!

Starting fresh? Check the installation docs to get started.


We've compiled a list of project templates for Angular Base Apps to help get you started quickly. If you have a template you would like added to the list let us know!


Documentation for the latest release is available at https://base-apps.github.io/angular-base-apps/latest

Documentation is distributed with each release of Angular Base Apps. The docs for a specific release can be found at the url above with latest replaced with the version tag. For instance, you can find the v1.2.6 release docs at https://base-apps.github.io/angular-base-apps/v1.2.6

Building this Repo

If you want to work with the source code directly or compile our documentation, follow these steps:

git clone https://github.com/base-apps/angular-base-apps.git
cd angular-base-apps
npm install

While you're working on the code, run:

npm start

This will assemble the templates, static assets, Sass, and JavaScript. You can view the test server at this URL:


The documentation can be viewed at the same URL as above.

Directory Structure

  • build: This is where our documentation is assembled. Don't edit these files directly, as they're overwritten every time you make a change!
  • docs: The Angular Base Apps documentation.
  • scss: The Sass components.
  • js: The Angular modules and directives, and other external libraries.
  • dist: Compiled CSS and JavaScript files, in minified and unminified flavors.
  • tests: Unit tests for the Angular modules.


Angular Base Apps follows semver, so we won't introduce breaking changes in minor or patch versions. The master branch will always have the newest changes, so it's not necessarily production ready.
