An angular module that utilizes bootstrap's dropdown as contextmenu

With this simple angular module you can use bootstrap dropdown menus as contextmenus on various elements (e.g. tables).

Try the DEMO or have a look at jsbin.


Yes, there are already a few angular modules which add contextmenus similar to this. But competition isn't a bad thing right?


  • remove jquery & bootstrap dependency
  • add more tests
  • add travis integration
  • document code

How to use

Install via npm..

npm install angular-contextmenu

Install via bower..

bower install angular-contextmenu

or download from github.

  • get the contextmenu.(js|css) files from dist/
  • make them available on your page
  • make angular load the module:
var app = angular.module('app', [
  • define the contextmenu in your template
<!-- contextmenu -->
<div contextmenu="meta.contextmenu" class="dropdown contextmenu">
  <ul class="dropdown-menu" role="menu">
    <li class="dropdown-header">
      {{ }}
      <a role="menuitem" tabindex="-1" href
         ng-href="#/user/{{ }}/edit"
      <a role="menuitem" href
  • link it to your html element
<table class="table" contextmenu-container="meta.contextmenu">
  <tr ng-repeat="row in data" contextmenu-item="row">
    <td class="col-center">
      <span class="fa fa-star" ng-show="row.is_admin" />
    <td>{{', ')}}</td>
    <td class="col-center">
      <span class="fa fa-warning" ng-show="!user.maildirCheck.isMaildir" />


You can find an example with angular v1.2 and angular v1.3 in the example folder.


You can use npm to build/bundle the module:

npm install
npm run build

If you want a watcher and auto-rebuild you can use nodemon for this:

npm install -g nodaemon
nodemon --ignore dist --exec "npm run build"
