Configuration utility for Angular app based on the environment variables. Tweet

Using JSON files configure your Angular app like a BOSS!

Specify a list of API endpoints in the JSON and get them in your code with ease.

Look how beautiful is your code 😊

Features

  • Configure the project for staging, development and production environments, by taking advantage of Angular environment variables.
  • Fallback to default (development.json) configuration if there is no match in production/staging configuration.
  • Initializ configuration, before whole application initialization process complete
  • Simplified methods for getting back-end API endpoints

Installation

npm install ngx-envconfig --save

Build Environments

  • ng build --configuration=staging builds for staging environment. For older versions ng build --env=staging
  • ng build --configuration=production builds for production environment. For older versions ng build --env=prod

Getting Started

Setting up configuration files

  • Create /config folder under /assets directory
  • Create the following config files for the appropriate environment under /assets/config folder.
// src/assets/config/development.json
{
  "HOST_API": "http://development.server.com",
  "API_ENDPOINTS": {
    "USER": "/api/v1/user"
  },
  "TOKEN": "development token"  
}
// src/assets/config/staging.json
{
  "HOST_API": "http://staging.server.com",
  "TOKEN": "staging token"
}
// src/assets/config/production.json
{
  "HOST_API": "http://production.server.com",
  "TOKEN": "production token"
}

Usage without Angular environment variables

// src/app/app.module.ts
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { ConfigModule } from 'ngx-envconfig';

@NgModule({
    imports: [
        ConfigModule.forRoot({state: 'development'})
        ...
    ],
    providers: [
        ...
        Your Providers
        ...
    ]
})

export class AppModule { }
// src/app/app.component.ts
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

import { ConfigService } from 'ngx-envconfig';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-root',
  templateUrl: './app.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
})
export class AppComponent {
  constructor(private configService: ConfigService){
      console.log(configService.get('HOST_API'))
      // prints: http://development.server.com
      console.log(configService.getApi('USERS'))
      // prints: http://development.server.com/api/v1/users
      // prints: http://production.server.com/api/v1/users if the state is production
  }
}

Usage with Angular environment variables

  • Add staging configurations in angular.json file. Make sure production configuration is added. Default one we assume is the development configuration, which is points to environment.ts file.

    ```json
    ...
    "projects": {
        "YOUR APP NAME": {
        "root": "",
        ...
            "architect": {
                "build": {
                ...
                "configurations": {
                    "production": {
                        "fileReplacements": [
                            {
                            "replace": "src/environments/environment.ts",
                            "with": "src/environments/environment.prod.ts"
                            }
                        ],
                        ...
                    },
                    "staging": {
                        "fileReplacements": [
                            {
                            "replace": "src/environments/environment.ts",
                            "with": "src/environments/environment.staging.ts"
                            }
                        ]
                    }
    ...
    }
    ```
    
  • If you have older version of Anuglar then make the updates in .angular-cli.json file as follows:

    "environmentSource": "environments/environment.ts",
      "environments": {
        "dev": "environments/environment.ts",
        "prod": "environments/environment.prod.ts",
        "staging": "environments/environment.staging.ts"
      }
    
  • Create the following files under /environments folder.

    // ./environments/environment.prod.ts
    export const environment = {
        state: 'production'
    };
    
    // ./environments/environment.staging.ts
    export const environment = {
        state: 'staging'
    };
    
    // ./environments/environment.ts
    export const environment = {
        state: 'development'
    };
    
  • Then you can add environment value to ConfigModule like this:

        // src/app/app.module.ts
        import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
        import { ConfigModule } from 'ngx-envconfig';
    
        import { environment } from '../src/environments/environment'; // <-- add this line
    
        @NgModule({
            imports: [
                ConfigModule.forRoot(environment) // <-- pass environment variable
                ...
            ],
            providers: [
                ...
                Your Providers
                ...
            ]
        })
    
        export class AppModule { }
    
```javascript 
// src/app/app.component.ts
import { Component } from '@angular/core';

import { ConfigService } from 'ngx-envconfig';

@Component({
selector: 'app-root',
    templateUrl: './app.component.html',
    styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
})
export class AppComponent {
    constructor(private configService: ConfigService){
        console.log(configService.get('HOST_API'))
        // prints: http://development.server.com
        // prints: http://production.server.com if the state is production

        console.log(configService.getApi('USERS'))
        // prints: http://development.server.com/api/v1/users
        // prints: http://production.server.com/api/v1/users if the state is production
    }
}

```

API Reference

ConfigModule

  • .forRoot(envConfig: EnvConfig) Based on the provided envConfig.state value, it will load the approprate *.json config file. It assumes that configuration json files are located under ./src/assets/config folder. Angular will bootstrap the app, only after the configuration *.json file is loaded.

EnvConfig

  • .state: string Specifies the environment. For instane if it's equalt to 'development' then will load development.json file from ./src/assets/config folder
  • .fallbackDev: boolean = false Indicates whether to get the value from development.json configuration if there is no match in the specified environment. For instance if "SOME_KEY" does not exist in production.json then it will return the value of "SOME_KEY" from development.json, if "SOME_KEY" value does exist development.json file.

ConfigService

  • .get(propertyName: string): any. Returns the corresponding value of the provided property propertyName config file.
    constructor(private config: ConfigService){
      console.log(this.config.get('HOST_API'))
      // prints: 'http://development.server.com' in development mode  
    }
    
  • .getEnv(): string. Returns the current environment
    constructor(private config: ConfigService){
      console.log(this.config.getEnv())
      // prints: 'development' in development mode
    }
    
  • .isDevMode(): boolean. Returns true if environment is development, otherwhise false
    constructor(private config: ConfigService){
      console.log(this.config.isDevMode())
      // prints: true in development mode
    }
    
  • .getApi(endpoint: string): string. This function will only work if you have provided "API_ENDPOINTS" object in cofig file, which provides the list of available API endpoints and "HOST_API" which is the API's host URL. Returns API endpoint from "API_ENDPOINTS" by concatenating it with "HOST_API".
    constructor(private config: ConfigService){
      console.log(this.config.getApi('USER'))
      // prints: 'http://development.server.com/api/v1/user' in development mode  
    }
    
  • .onLoad: AsyncSubject boolean. Async subject to be subscribed. Emits when the config file is already loaded.
    constructor(private config: ConfigService){
      this.config.onLoad.subscribe(()=>{
          console.log('Config file is loaded');
      })
    }
