I’m hoping you’re a fan of Star Wars, or at least know a little about it. I’ll be making use of the Star Wars API to help create a Star Wars Fan Site. At the end of each section, I’ll also provide a link to a commit in a github repo that should match all the code upto that section of the tutorial.
I first used AngularJS for a couple of weeks during an Internship at Amazon. I then used it much more in-depth at another internship at OANDA. At OANDA, we used AngularJS as the core framework for the front-end portion of the new registration system we were releasing. Once I returned back to school, I’ve used AngularJS for a couple of super quick [hackathon projects]../that-one-time-i-hacked-the-north/), as well as a much more complicated project course I took. I find it really easy to setup, and that you can connect it with a lot of other technologies like Firebase really easily.
Before we begin writing any code, I’d like to make sure you have all the basics setup and ready. From personal preference, I’ll be using Sublime Text for editing my code. I am using a Mac to do my development, and will will be using the bash terminal to run a Python command that creates a simpleHTTPServer. I’ll be doing my testing on a Google Chrome browser to view the changes as we go.
If everyone is ready, then let’s get started!
