Around a month ago I published a post about
my Angular Seed Project with Firebase.
Since then I tried to promote this seed to a couple of friends in Germany, who
were not really happy to host their data on Firebase. So I started to refactor
framework for rapid back-end development based on
Express. I used LoopBack for my latest major consulting
project and think that the development experience is awesome. There is a great
client SDK for Angular,
which makes connecting an Angular front-end super easy. Both AngularJS and
Angular are supported, so I could just attach my Angular front-end and replace
AuthService with a LoopBack version. It even supports
Firebase-like real-time communication via the
Finally, I am now running on a stack of PostgreSQL + LoopBack + Angular + Node.js, which I call the “PLAN stack” 😃. Though I am not the first one who came up with the idea. I still think the new seed project for my PLAN stack is a good starting point for modern web applications:
Check out our trainings at ng-lisbon if you want to learn more about Angular and the PLAN stack!
I am happy to get any feedback, let me know what you think about the seed. Is it useful, and what could be improved?
