Angular Sails

This small module allows you to use Sails.JS's awesome socket.io api with AngularJS.

Just add a dependency to your module and controllers and get it going!

Install it:

bower install angular-sails

You must also include sails.io.js in order to use this.

Usage

For a more complex example, have a look at the tutorial by Maarten.

A small example:

var app = angular.module("MyApp", ['ngSails']);

//OPTIONAL! Set socket URL!
app.config(['$sailsProvider', function ($sailsProvider) {
    $sailsProvider.url = 'http://foo.bar';
}]);

app.controller("FooController", function ($scope, $sails) {
  $scope.bars = [];

  (function () {
    // Using .success() and .error()
    $sails.get("/bars")
      .success(function (data, status, headers, jwr) {
        $scope.bars = data;
      })
      .error(function (data, status, headers, jwr) {
        alert('Houston, we got a problem!');
      });

    // Using .then()
    $sails.get("/bars")
      .then(function(resp){
          $scope.bars = resp.data;
      }, function(resp){
        alert('Houston, we got a problem!');
      });

    // Watching for updates
    var barsHandler = $sails.on("bars", function (message) {
      if (message.verb === "created") {
        $scope.bars.push(message.data);
      }
    });

    // Stop watching for updates
    $scope.$on('$destroy', function() {
      $sails.off('bars', barsHandler);
    });

  }());
});
