Angular And Contentful – Content Management For Single-Page Web Apps

Angular And Contentful – Content Management For Single-Page Web Apps - In this tutorial you’ll learn how to integrate Contentful with your Angular 5/6 application. Contentful is a content management platform which allows you to structure and manage content in the cloud…

This content can then be used across multiple platform, e.g. the same content is consumed by a website and a mobile app. The Contentful website is available at https://www.contentful.com.

Contentful And Angular

In this tutorial you’ll learn how to use Contentful as the Content Management Backend for your Angular application. Traditionally the term content management is associated with Content Management Systems like WordPress. The Contentful approach is a more generic one. You can manage the content in the Contentful backend independent of your front-end / presentation layer.

Using a single-page application build with the Angular framework to present the content management by Contentful is only one option.

Create A Contentful Space And Define Content Types

To get started we first need to create a free Contentful account and then create a so called space in the Contentful backend. A space is a place where you keep all the content related to a single project in Contentful. For our sample project we’re going to create a new space in the Contentful backend first. To do so you first need to open the left side menu and then select the link Add Space. This is opening up the dialog which can be seen in the following screenshot:

Fill in a name for your new space (e.g. ngContentful01) and click on button Create Space to actually initiate that new space in the Contentful backend.

The next step is to define a new content type type for the space. This needs to be done prior to adding content because every piece of content needs to be described a content type first. The content type consists of fields, validations rules and appearance settings.

For the sample application we’re going to build in this tutorial we need to create a Course content time with the following fields:

  • Title
  • Course Image
  • Author
  • Description
  • Long Description
  • URL

The final content type definition can be seen in the following screenshot:

Having defined the content type you can switch to the Content view and add content based on the Course content type by using the Contentful editor:

Having added some courses sample data to Contentful we’re now ready to start building the Angular application and make use of that content in the next step.

Setting Up The Angular Project

Let’s initiate a new Angular project by using Angular CLI:

$ ng new ngContentful

The is setting up a default Angular project in the newly created directory ngContentful. Change into that new project directory:

$ cd ngContentful

and add the following dependencies via NPM:

$ npm install contentful marked bootstrap

  • contentful: JavaScript SDK for Contentful’s Content Delivery API.
  • marked: a library for transferring markdown code to HTML code
  • bootstrap: the Bootstrap front-end component library

Finally add the following line of code to styles.css to make Bootstrap’s CSS classes available in our application:

@import '~bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css';

Creating A Service To Access Contentful Data

Now, that the project setup is ready we’re able to implement the application. First let’s add a new service to out Angular application which should contain the logic which is needed to retrieve data from Contentful:

$ ng g service contentful --module app

This is adding the file contentful.service.ts to with a default implementation of an Angular service class included. This default implementation needs to be enhanced with the code you can see in the following listing:

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { createClient, Entry } from 'contentful';
import { environment } from '../environments/environment';
import { Observable } from 'rxjs/Observable';

export class ContentfulService {

  private client = createClient({
    space: environment.contentful.spaceId,
    accessToken: environment.contentful.token

  constructor() { }

  getCourses(query?: object): Promise<Entry<any>[]> {
    return this.client.getEntries(Object.assign({
      content_type: 'course'
    }, query))
      .then(res => res.items);

  getCourse(courseId): Promise<Entry<any>> {
    return this.client.getEntries(Object.assign({
     content_type: 'course'
    }, {'sys.id': courseId}))
      .then(res => res.items[0]);

A connection to the Contentful service is created by calling the *createClient *function from the Contentful JavaScript library. To establish a connection this method gets a configuration object with two properties:

  • space
  • accessToken

For our application we’re storing Space ID and Access Token in environment.ts, so that we’re able to access both valus by using environment.contentful.spaceId and environment.contentful.token:

export const environment = {
  production: false,

  contentful: {
    spaceId: '[...]',
    token: '[...]'

Having established a connection (available in variable client) the next step is to implement the following two service methods:

  • getCourses: this method is used to retrieve a list of all entries of content type *course *by excuting this.client.getEntries.
  • getCourse: this method is used to retrieve a single entry for a specific ID.

Creating CourseListComponent

The ContentfulService can now be used in all of our components. As the application should consists of two views (list of courses and course details page) we’re adding two components to our project. The first component is *CourseListComponent *and is generated by using Angular CLI again in the following way:

$ ng g component course-list

This command is adding the four new files to the project:

  • src/app/course-list/course-list.component.ts
  • src/app/course-list/course-list.component.html
  • src/app/course-list/course-list.component.css
  • src/app/course-list/course-list.component.spec.ts

Those files are containing the default implementation of a new component. Let’s start to add the needed functionality by first extending the class implementation in file course-list.component.ts:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { Router } from '@angular/router';
import { ContentfulService } from '../contentful.service';
import { Entry } from 'contentful';

  selector: 'app-course-list',
  templateUrl: './course-list.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./course-list.component.css']
export class CourseListComponent implements OnInit {

  courses: Entry<any>[] = [];

    private router: Router,
    private contentfulService: ContentfulService
  ) { }

  ngOnInit() {
      .then(courses => this.courses = courses);

  goToCourseDetailsPage(courseId) {
    this.router.navigate(['/course', courseId]);


First of all you need to notice that two services are injected into the class constructor: Routerand ContentfulService. By using dependency injection we’re getting access to instances of both service class types.

In the *ngOnInit *component lifecycle method we’re calling this.contentfulService.getCourses() to retrieve a list of all courses. The data is returned as a promise, so we’re able to register a callback method with *then *which is executed once the promise is solved. In this case we’re assigning the returned data to class member courses.

Another class method is implemented: goToCourseDetailsPage(courseId). This method takes a specific course ID and then uses the Router service to navigate to the corresponding course detail’s page by executing this.router.navigate([‘/course’, courseId]).

Now let’s take a look at the template code of *CoursListComponent *in file course-list.component.html:

  <div class="alert alert-info" role="alert" *ngFor="let course of courses">
      <div class="d-flex flex-wrap flex-xl-nowrap flex-lg-nowrap flex-md-nowrap">
        <div class="p-2">
            <a href="{{ course.fields.url }}" target="_blank"><img src="{{ course.fields.courseImage.fields.file.url }}" class="rounded" width="196" /></a>
        <div class="p-2">
          <h5 class="alert-heading"><a href="{{ course.fields.url }}" target="_blank">{{ course.fields.title}}</a></h5>
          <p><i>{{ course.fields.author }}</i></p>
          <div>{{ course.fields.description }}</div>

          <a href="{{ course.fields.url }}" target="_blank" class="btn btn-success">Go To Course</a>
          <button (click)="goToCourseDetailsPage(course.sys.id)" class="btn btn-info">Course Details</button>

Here we’re using the *ngFor directive to iterate through the courses:

*ngFor="let course of courses"

For every course available the output is repeated. Bootstrap CSS classes are used to style the output. The course properties can be accessed via the field property, e.g.:

{{ course.fields.url }}

The click event of the Course Details button is connected to the goToCourseDetailsPagemethod. The current course ID which needs to be passed to this method is available via course.sys.id.

Adding A Router Configuration To AppModule

Before adding the next component (CourseDetailsComponent) to the project, let’s configure and activate the routing system. To do so let’s add the following import statement in app.module.ts:

import { RouterModule, Routes } from '@angular/router';

Next we need to add the router configuration to the file as well:

const routes: Routes = [ 
 { path: '', redirectTo: '/courses', pathMatch: 'full'}, 
 { path: 'courses', component: CourseListComponent}, 
 { path: 'course/:id', component: CourseDetailsComponent } 

Three routes are configured:

  • The default route (/) is being redirected to the /courses route
  • /courses is connected with component CourseListComponent, so that the course list is displayed
  • /course/:id is connected to component CourseDetailsComponent. Accessing this route displays the course details page for a specific ID.

To activate the route configuration for our project we need to add *RouterModule *to the imports array in the following way:

imports: [ 

Finally the <router-outlet></router-outlet> element has to be part of the main component template in app.component.html. The element is a placeholder for the output which is generated by the component which is activated for the current route:

<div class="container"> 

Creating CourseDetailsComponent

Now that the routing configuration is available and activated for our Angular application, let’s continue with adding *CourseDetailsComponent *next:

$ ng g component course-details

Extend the default implementation in course-details.component.ts to comprise the code from the following listing:

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { Router, ActivatedRoute, ParamMap } from '@angular/router';
import { ContentfulService } from '../contentful.service';
import { Entry } from 'contentful';

  selector: 'app-course-details',
  templateUrl: './course-details.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./course-details.component.css']
export class CourseDetailsComponent implements OnInit {

  course: Entry<any>;

    private route: ActivatedRoute,
    private router: Router,
    private contentfulService: ContentfulService
  ) { }

  ngOnInit() {
    const courseId = this.route.snapshot.paramMap.get('id');
      .then((course) => {
        this.course = course;

  goToList() {


Again we’re using dependency injection to inject services ActivatedRoute, Router and ContentfulService into the class. Furthermore two methods or implemented: *ngOnInit *and goToList.

The lifecycle method *ngOnInit *contains the code which is needed to retrieve the requested course ID from the URL via this.route.snapshot.paramMap.get('id') in the first step. In the second step this ID is then used to retrieve the course entry from Contentful by using the *ContentfulService *method getCourse.

Let’s complete the implementation of *CourseDetailsComponent *by adding the following template code to course-details.component.html:

<div *ngIf="course.fields">
  <a href="{{ course.fields.url }}" target="_blank"><img width="40%" style="margin: 10px" class="float-right rounded" src="{{course.fields.courseImage.fields.file.url}}"></a>
  <h2><a href="{{ course.fields.url }}" target="_blank">{{ course.fields.title }}</a></h2>
  <i>by {{ course.fields.author }}</i>
  <div>{{ course.fields.description }}</div>
  <div>{{ course.fields.longDescription }}</div>
  <a href="{{ course.fields.url }}" target="_blank" class="btn btn-success">Go To Course</a>
  <button (click)="goToList()" class="btn btn-danger">Back To List</button>

Convert Markdown To HTML

The course fields *description *and *longDescription *have been configured in Contentful to contain Markdown code. In order to make sure that the Markdown text is displayed correctly in the browser we need to transfer it from Markdown to HTML. Therefore we will be used the marked JavaScript library which has already been installed. To be able to apply the transformation a new pipe is added to our project:

$ ng g pipe mdToHtml

The implementation is then added into file md-to-html.pipe.ts:

import { Pipe, PipeTransform } from '@angular/core';

import * as marked from 'marked';

  name: 'mdToHtml'
export class MdToHtmlPipe implements PipeTransform {

  transform(value: string): any {
    return marked(value);


The pipe can now be used in the template code of file course-list.component.html:

<div [innerHTML]="course.fields.description | mdToHtml"></div>

And in file course-details.component.html:

<div [innerHTML]="course.fields.description | mdToHtml"></div> 
<div [innerHTML]="course.fields.longDescription | mdToHtml"></div>

So that the markdown code is transferred to HTML and added to the output.


The final result should now look like the following:

By default the /courses route is opened and the list of courses is presented. Clicking on thhttps://codingthesmartway.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/04-1.pnghttp://ngcontentful.surge.she Course Details button takes you to the corresponding details page:


By using the Contentful platform you can structure and manage your content in the cloud easily. Contentful providers a powerful back-end editor so that users can create and update content without hurdles. As Contentful is a generic approach to content management you can use that service across multiple platforms and presentation technologies.

In this tutorial you’ve learned how to use Contentful as the Content Management System for your Angular application. By using that approach you can combine the power of a modern single-page web application platform with a full featured cloud-based Content Management System.

How long does it take to develop/build an app?

With more of us using smartphones, the popularity of mobile applications has exploded. In the digital era, the number of people looking for products and services online is growing rapidly. Smartphone owners look for mobile applications that give them quick access to companies’ products and services. As a result, mobile apps provide customers with a lot of benefits in just one device.

Likewise, companies use mobile apps to increase customer loyalty and improve their services. Mobile Developers are in high demand as companies use apps not only to create brand awareness but also to gather information. For that reason, mobile apps are used as tools to collect valuable data from customers to help companies improve their offer.

There are many types of mobile applications, each with its own advantages. For example, native apps perform better, while web apps don’t need to be customized for the platform or operating system (OS). Likewise, hybrid apps provide users with comfortable user experience. However, you may be wondering how long it takes to develop an app.

To give you an idea of how long the app development process takes, here’s a short guide.

App Idea & Research


_Average time spent: two to five weeks _

This is the initial stage and a crucial step in setting the project in the right direction. In this stage, you brainstorm ideas and select the best one. Apart from that, you’ll need to do some research to see if your idea is viable. Remember that coming up with an idea is easy; the hard part is to make it a reality.

All your ideas may seem viable, but you still have to run some tests to keep it as real as possible. For that reason, when Web Developers are building a web app, they analyze the available ideas to see which one is the best match for the targeted audience.

Targeting the right audience is crucial when you are developing an app. It saves time when shaping the app in the right direction as you have a clear set of objectives. Likewise, analyzing how the app affects the market is essential. During the research process, App Developers must gather information about potential competitors and threats. This helps the app owners develop strategies to tackle difficulties that come up after the launch.

The research process can take several weeks, but it determines how successful your app can be. For that reason, you must take your time to know all the weaknesses and strengths of the competitors, possible app strategies, and targeted audience.

The outcomes of this stage are app prototypes and the minimum feasible product.

Best Electric Bikes and Scooters for Rental Business or Campus Facility

The electric scooter revolution has caught on super-fast taking many cities across the globe by storm. eScooters, a renovated version of old-school scooters now turned into electric vehicles are an environmentally friendly solution to current on-demand commute problems. They work on engines, like cars, enabling short traveling distances without hassle. The result is that these groundbreaking electric machines can now provide faster transport for less — cheaper than Uber and faster than Metro.

Since they are durable, fast, easy to operate and maintain, and are more convenient to park compared to four-wheelers, the eScooters trend has and continues to spike interest as a promising growth area. Several companies and universities are increasingly setting up shop to provide eScooter services realizing a would-be profitable business model and a ready customer base that is university students or residents in need of faster and cheap travel going about their business in school, town, and other surrounding areas.

Electric Scooters Trends and Statistics

In many countries including the U.S., Canada, Mexico, U.K., Germany, France, China, Japan, India, Brazil and Mexico and more, a growing number of eScooter users both locals and tourists can now be seen effortlessly passing lines of drivers stuck in the endless and unmoving traffic.

A recent report by McKinsey revealed that the E-Scooter industry will be worth― $200 billion to $300 billion in the United States, $100 billion to $150 billion in Europe, and $30 billion to $50 billion in China in 2030. The e-Scooter revenue model will also spike and is projected to rise by more than 20% amounting to approximately $5 billion.

And, with a necessity to move people away from high carbon prints, traffic and congestion issues brought about by car-centric transport systems in cities, more and more city planners are developing more bike/scooter lanes and adopting zero-emission plans. This is the force behind the booming electric scooter market and the numbers will only go higher and higher.

Companies that have taken advantage of the growing eScooter trend develop an appthat allows them to provide efficient eScooter services. Such an app enables them to be able to locate bike pick-up and drop points through fully integrated google maps.

List of Best Electric Bikes for Rental Business or Campus Facility 2020:

It’s clear that e scooters will increasingly become more common and the e-scooter business model will continue to grab the attention of manufacturers, investors, entrepreneurs. All this should go ahead with a quest to know what are some of the best electric bikes in the market especially for anyone who would want to get started in the electric bikes/scooters rental business.

How to start an electric scooter facility/fleet in a university campus/IT park

Are you leading an organization that has a large campus, e.g., a large university? You are probably thinking of introducing an electric scooter/bicycle fleet on the campus, and why wouldn’t you?

Introducing micro-mobility in your campus with the help of such a fleet would help the people on the campus significantly. People would save money since they don’t need to use a car for a short distance. Your campus will see a drastic reduction in congestion, moreover, its carbon footprint will reduce.

Micro-mobility is relatively new though and you would need help. You would need to select an appropriate fleet of vehicles. The people on your campus would need to find electric scooters or electric bikes for commuting, and you need to provide a solution for this.

To be more specific, you need a short-term electric bike rental app. With such an app, you will be able to easily offer micro-mobility to the people on the campus. We at Devathon have built Autorent exactly for this.

What does Autorent do and how can it help you? How does it enable you to introduce micro-mobility on your campus? We explain these in this article, however, we will touch upon a few basics first.

Micro-mobility: What it is


You are probably thinking about micro-mobility relatively recently, aren’t you? A few relevant insights about it could help you to better appreciate its importance.

Micro-mobility is a new trend in transportation, and it uses vehicles that are considerably smaller than cars. Electric scooters (e-scooters) and electric bikes (e-bikes) are the most popular forms of micro-mobility, however, there are also e-unicycles and e-skateboards.

You might have already seen e-scooters, which are kick scooters that come with a motor. Thanks to its motor, an e-scooter can achieve a speed of up to 20 km/h. On the other hand, e-bikes are popular in China and Japan, and they come with a motor, and you can reach a speed of 40 km/h.

You obviously can’t use these vehicles for very long commutes, however, what if you need to travel a short distance? Even if you have a reasonable public transport facility in the city, it might not cover the route you need to take. Take the example of a large university campus. Such a campus is often at a considerable distance from the central business district of the city where it’s located. While public transport facilities may serve the central business district, they wouldn’t serve this large campus. Currently, many people drive their cars even for short distances.

As you know, that brings its own set of challenges. Vehicular traffic adds significantly to pollution, moreover, finding a parking spot can be hard in crowded urban districts.

Well, you can reduce your carbon footprint if you use an electric car. However, electric cars are still new, and many countries are still building the necessary infrastructure for them. Your large campus might not have the necessary infrastructure for them either. Presently, electric cars don’t represent a viable option in most geographies.

As a result, you need to buy and maintain a car even if your commute is short. In addition to dealing with parking problems, you need to spend significantly on your car.

All of these factors have combined to make people sit up and think seriously about cars. Many people are now seriously considering whether a car is really the best option even if they have to commute only a short distance.

This is where micro-mobility enters the picture. When you commute a short distance regularly, e-scooters or e-bikes are viable options. You limit your carbon footprints and you cut costs!

Businesses have seen this shift in thinking, and e-scooter companies like Lime and Bird have entered this field in a big way. They let you rent e-scooters by the minute. On the other hand, start-ups like Jump and Lyft have entered the e-bike market.

Think of your campus now! The people there might need to travel short distances within the campus, and e-scooters can really help them.

How micro-mobility can benefit you


What advantages can you get from micro-mobility? Let’s take a deeper look into this question.

Micro-mobility can offer several advantages to the people on your campus, e.g.:

  • Affordability: Shared e-scooters are cheaper than other mass transportation options. Remember that the people on your campus will use them on a shared basis, and they will pay for their short commutes only. Well, depending on your operating model, you might even let them use shared e-scooters or e-bikes for free!
  • Convenience: Users don’t need to worry about finding parking spots for shared e-scooters since these are small. They can easily travel from point A to point B on your campus with the help of these e-scooters.
  • Environmentally sustainable: Shared e-scooters reduce the carbon footprint, moreover, they decongest the roads. Statistics from the pilot programs in cities like Portland and Denver showimpressive gains around this key aspect.
  • Safety: This one’s obvious, isn’t it? When people on your campus use small e-scooters or e-bikes instead of cars, the problem of overspeeding will disappear. you will see fewer accidents.
