This is boilerplate for (PWA) progressive web app with Angular Universal (serverside rendering). It is prepared to be easily deployed on serverless environment (Google Cloud Functions & AWS Lambda supported).

Live demo

Angular Universal PWA on AWS Lambda + API Gateway


What's inside

  • PWA - content is cached and available offline, it can be also installed as native app on Android devices and Google Chrome
  • AMP - Accelerated Mobile Pages - super fast initial load (down to ~650ms)
  • Push notifications:
  • Server-side rendering with Angular Universal
  • TransferState
  • Lazy loading modules
  • External modules (You can split your application into multiple projects and lazy-load them, read more here) [TBD after CLI merge - #150]
  • Angular Material
  • Unit tests
  • Firebug Lite (great solution for development on touch-screen devices, ie: tablets)

Used frameworks/technologies

  • Angular 6.x
  • Webpack
  • Serverless framework

Getting Started

Whatch on Youtube:

How to start project with ng-toolkit

Using Angular CLI schematics

npm install -g @ng-toolkit/init

Create project:

ng new --collection @ng-toolkit/init myApp
cd myApp

CLI params

  • --provider - What serverless provider you want to use? (aws | gcloud | firebase) - default aws
  • --firebaseProject - projectID, used when you choose firebase in above param
  • --gaTrackingCode - Provide your Google Analytics tracking code, to enable GA (ie --gaTrackingCode UA-123456)
  • --firebug - Decide if you want to download firebug-lite (true | false) - default false

Cloning the repo

git clone https://github.com/maciejtreder/ng-toolkit.git

Serverless environments

Custom link

npm run build:prod:deploy

Check out Serverless library documentation Read more about link customization in AWS API Gateway & Lambda

To do

Won't implement:

  • load static content from S3 (JavaScript, styles, images):
    • when serving all static content from S3 load speed up is not really visible (increase is around ~0,2 sec),
    • problems with CORS on Chrome,
    • problems with compression of some files (.js files are not compressed in some cases)
    • needs a lot of manual setup (cloudfront setup etc.)
