MEAN Stack Tutorial – Angular 7 CRUD App with Bootstrap 4

By Digamber Rawat Last updated on
Today, I am going to share with you a MEAN Stack Tutorial, in this MEAN Stack tutorial I am going to create an Angular 7 CRUD App using Bootstrap 4. I will be using Node.js, Express.js, MongoDB for backend and Angular 7 for handling frontend.

For the demo purpose, I will create an employee management system using Angular 7 MEAN stack. I will try to cover the essential topic used in CRUD web application development.

In this MEAN stack tutorial, I will share step by step process to build an Angular 7 CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) app from scratch.

Let us understand what does MEAN stack means.

  • Mongo DB – It’s an open-source NoSQL cross-platform document-oriented database.
  • Express JS – It’s a web-based application framework work with Node JS, It helps to build web apps and RESTful APIs.
  • Angular 7 – Its a TypeScript based complete front-end framework developed by Google team.
  • Node JS – It is a free JavaScript run time environment, It executes JavaScript code outside of a browser. It is available for MacOS, Windows, Linux and Unix.

I will be using following plugins and tools to create MEAN Stack app.

#1 Setup Node JS development environment

Follow this link to set up Node JS in your system.

#2 Build a Node.JS Backend

To write the manageable code, we should keep the MEAN Stack backend folder separate. Create a folder by the name of the backend in Angular’s root directory. This folder will handle the backend code of our application, remember it will have the separate node_modules folder from Angular 7.

mkdir backend

Enter the below command to get into the backend folder.

cd backend

Now you are inside the backend folder, run the below command to create the package.json file. This file will have the meta data of your MEAN Stack app, It is also known as the manifest file of any NodeJS project.

npm init -y

– Install and Configure required NPM packages for MEAN Stack app development

Use the below command to install the following node modules.

npm install --save body-parser cors express mongoose
  • body-parser: The body-parser npm module is a JSON parsing middleware. It helps to parse the JSON data, plain text or a whole object.
  • CORS: This is a Node JS package, also known as the express js middleware. It allows enabling CORS with multiple options. It is available through the npm registry.
  • Express.js: Express js is a free open source Node js web application framework. It helps in creating web applications and RESTful APIs.
  • Mongoose: Mongoose is a MongoDB ODM for Node. It allows you to interact with MongoDB database.

Starting a server every time a change is made is a time-consuming task. To get rid of this problem we use nodemon npm module. This package restarts the server automatically every time we make a change. We’ll be installing it locally by using given below command.

npm install nodemon --save-dev

Now, go within the backend folder’s root, create a file by the name of server.js.

touch server.js

Now within the backend > server.js file add the given below code.

let express = require('express'),
   path = require('path'),
   mongoose = require('mongoose'),
   cors = require('cors'),
   bodyParser = require('body-parser'),
   dbConfig = require('./database/db');

// Connecting with mongo db
mongoose.Promise = global.Promise;
mongoose.connect(dbConfig.db, {
   useNewUrlParser: true
}).then(() => {
      console.log('Database sucessfully connected')
   },
   error => {
      console.log('Database could not connected: ' + error)
   }
)

// Setting up port with express js
const employeeRoute = require('../backend/routes/employee.route')
const app = express();
app.use(bodyParser.json());
app.use(bodyParser.urlencoded({
   extended: false
}));
app.use(cors()); 
app.use(express.static(path.join(__dirname, 'dist/mean-stack-crud-app')));
app.use('/', express.static(path.join(__dirname, 'dist/mean-stack-crud-app')));
app.use('/api', employeeRoute)

// Create port
const port = process.env.PORT || 4000;
const server = app.listen(port, () => {
  console.log('Connected to port ' + port)
})

// Find 404 and hand over to error handler
app.use((req, res, next) => {
   next(createError(404));
});

// error handler
app.use(function (err, req, res, next) {
  console.error(err.message); // Log error message in our server's console
  if (!err.statusCode) err.statusCode = 500; // If err has no specified error code, set error code to 'Internal Server Error (500)'
  res.status(err.statusCode).send(err.message); // All HTTP requests must have a response, so let's send back an error with its status code and message
});

#3 Connect MongoDB Database with Angular 7 MEAN Stack App

It’s time to connect the MongoDB database with Angular 7 MEAN Stack app, use the below commands to setup MongoDB.

Create a database folder within the backend folder.

mkdir database

Go inside the database folder.

cd database

Then create the backend > database > db.js file inside the database folder.

touch db.js

Include the given below code in backend > database > db.js file.

module.exports = {
  db: 'mongodb://localhost:27017/meandb'
};

Note: meandb is the database name.

Now we need to make the connection between MongoDB and Angular 7 MEAN Stack app. Go to backend > server.js file and include the below code.

let mongoose = require('mongoose');

// Connecting with mongo db
mongoose.Promise = global.Promise;
mongoose.connect(dbConfig.db, {
   useNewUrlParser: true
}).then(() => {
      console.log('Database sucessfully connected')
   },
   error => {
      console.log('Database could not connected: ' + error)
   }
)

#4 Create Model with Mongoose JS

Let us create the models folder inside the backend folder.

mkdir models

Then i will create the Employee.js file.

touch Employee.js

In this file i will define the Schema for employees collection. My data types are name, email, designation and phoneNumber. Add the given below code in backend > models > Employee.js file.

const mongoose = require('mongoose');
const Schema = mongoose.Schema;

// Define collection and schema
let Employee = new Schema({
   name: {
      type: String
   },
   email: {
      type: String
   },
   designation: {
      type: String
   },
   phoneNumber: {
      type: Number
   }
}, {
   collection: 'employees'
})

module.exports = mongoose.model('Employee', Employee)

#5 Create RESTful APIs using Express JS Routes

Let us create the routes in MEAN Stack Angular 7 app to acess the Employee data through RESTful APIs. I will be using Mongoose.js in our MEAN Stack Tutorial to create, read, update & delete data from MongoDB database.

Create backend > routes > employee.route.js file inside the routes folder.

touch employee.route.js

Add the given below code to create RESTful APIs in MEAN Stack app using mongoose.js.

const express = require('express');
const app = express();
const employeeRoute = express.Router();

// Employee model
let Employee = require('../models/Employee');

// Add Employee
employeeRoute.route('/create').post((req, res, next) => {
  Employee.create(req.body, (error, data) => {
    if (error) {
      return next(error)
    } else {
      res.json(data)
    }
  })
});

// Get All Employees
employeeRoute.route('/').get((req, res) => {
  Employee.find((error, data) => {
    if (error) {
      return next(error)
    } else {
      res.json(data)
    }
  })
})

// Get single employee
employeeRoute.route('/read/:id').get((req, res) => {
  Employee.findById(req.params.id, (error, data) => {
    if (error) {
      return next(error)
    } else {
      res.json(data)
    }
  })
})


// Update employee
employeeRoute.route('/update/:id').put((req, res, next) => {
  Employee.findByIdAndUpdate(req.params.id, {
    $set: req.body
  }, (error, data) => {
    if (error) {
      return next(error);
      console.log(error)
    } else {
      res.json(data)
      console.log('Data updated successfully')
    }
  })
})

// Delete employee
employeeRoute.route('/delete/:id').delete((req, res, next) => {
  Employee.findOneAndRemove(req.params.id, (error, data) => {
    if (error) {
      return next(error);
    } else {
      res.status(200).json({
        msg: data
      })
    }
  })
})

module.exports = employeeRoute;

We have set up our MEAN Stack Angular 7 app’s backend using Node js, Express js, Angualr 7 and MongoDB.

We have to start 3 servers in our app to start the development in MEAN Stack Angualr 7 app.

Start Angular 7 Server

ng serve

Start Nodemon Server
In order to start nodemon server, first enter into the backend folder using given below command.

cd backend

Then run the following command to start the nodemon server.

nodemon server

You’ll get the following output in your terminal.

# [nodemon] 1.18.6
# [nodemon] to restart at any time, enter `rs`
# [nodemon] watching: *.*
# [nodemon] starting `node server.js`
# Connected to port 4000
# Database sucessfully connected

Start MongoDB Server
Open the new terminal enter into the backend folder then use the below command to start the mongoDB server.

mongod

You can access your API route on given below url, here you can check your data.

Check your Angular frontend on – http://localhost:4200

You can check your api url on – http://localhost:4000/api

MEAN Stack App RESTful APIs

We have successfully created APIs to handle CRUD operations in our MEAN Stack app.

Method API url
GET /api
POST /create
GET /read/id
PUT /update/id
DELETE /delete/id

To test the REST API you must use the below command.

curl -i -H "Accept: application/json" localhost:4000/api

Given below output indicates that your REST API is ready to go.

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
X-Powered-By: Express
Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *
Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8
Content-Length: 2
ETag: W/"2-l9Fw4VUO7kr8CvBlt4zaMCqXZ0w"
Date: Sat, 11 May 2019 17:06:09 GMT
Connection: keep-alive

#6 Set up Angular 7 MEAN Stack Project

Install Angular CLI
Angular project is developed using Angular CLI, so before setting up Angular 7 project. You must have Angular CLI installed in your system. Hit the given below command to install the Angular CLI, ignore if Angular CLI is already installed.

npm install @angular/cli -g

Let us install Angular 7 project, run the following command.

ng new mean-stack-crud-app

Angular CLI asks for your choices while setting up the project…

Would you like to add Angular routing?
Select y and Hit Enter.

Which stylesheet format would you like to use? (Use arrow keys)
Choose CSS and hit Enter

Your Angular project is installed now get into the project directory.

cd mean-stack-crud-app

If using visual studio code editor then use the below cmd to open the project.

code .

For this demo Angular 7 MEAN stack tutorial, I will use Bootstrap 4 for creating employee management system. Use the following cmd to install Bootstrap 4.

npm install bootstrap

Then, Go to angular.json file and add the below code in “styles”: [ ] array like given below.

"styles": [
          "node_modules/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css",
          "src/styles.css"
         ]

Generate components in Angular 7 app.
In order to manage components i will keep all the components in components folder, use the below cmd to generate components in Angular 7.

ng g c components/employee-create
ng g c components/employee-edit
ng g c components/employee-list

Your Angular 7 app has been set up for MEAN Stack development. enter the below command to run the project.

ng serve

#7 Activate Routing Service in MEAN Stack Angular App

In order to navigate between multiple components, we must set up routing service in our app. Now if you remember while setting up an Angular project, CLI asked this question “Would you like to add Angular routing?”. We selected yes, it automatically created app-routing.module.tsand registered in src > app > app.module.ts file.

Include the below code to enable routing service in Angular app.

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

import { EmployeeCreateComponent } from './components/employee-create/employee-create.component';
import { EmployeeListComponent } from './components/employee-list/employee-list.component';
import { EmployeeEditComponent } from './components/employee-edit/employee-edit.component';

const routes: Routes = [
  { path: '', pathMatch: 'full', redirectTo: 'create-employee' },
  { path: 'create-employee', component: EmployeeCreateComponent },
  { path: 'edit-employee/:id', component: EmployeeEditComponent },
  { path: 'employees-list', component: EmployeeListComponent }  
];

@NgModule({
  imports: [RouterModule.forRoot(routes)],
  exports: [RouterModule]
})

export class AppRoutingModule { }

To enable routing service include the below code in app.component.ts file.

<nav>
  <a routerLinkActive="active" routerLink="/employees-list">View Employees</a>
  <a routerLinkActive="active" routerLink="/create-employee">Add Employee</a>
</nav>

<router-outlet></router-outlet>

#8 Create Angular 7 Service to Consume RESTful APIs

To consume RESTful API in MEAN Stack Angualr 7 app, we need to create a service file. This service file will handle Create, Read, Update and Delete operations.

Before we create Angular 7 service in MEAN Stack app to consume RESTful APIs, We need to do 2 following things:

– Configure the HttpClientModule

We need to import HttpClientModule service in app.module.ts file.

import { HttpClientModule } from '@angular/common/http';

@NgModule({
  imports: [
    HttpClientModule
   ]
})

You’ve successfully placed the HttpClientModule in your Angular app.

– Create Employee Model File

Create src > model > employee.ts file.

ng g cl model/Employee

Add the following code in it.

export class Employee {
   name: string;
   email: string;
   designation: string;
   phoneNumber: number;
}

Create Angular 7 Service

Use the given below cmd to create Angular 7 Service file to manage CRUD operations in MEAN Stack Angular 7 app.

ng g s service/api

Now go to src > app > service > api.service.ts file and add the below code.

import { Injectable } from '@angular/core';
import { Observable, throwError } from 'rxjs';
import { catchError, map } from 'rxjs/operators';
import { HttpClient, HttpHeaders, HttpErrorResponse } from '@angular/common/http';

@Injectable({
  providedIn: 'root'
})

export class ApiService {
  
  baseUri:string = 'http://localhost:4000/api';
  headers = new HttpHeaders().set('Content-Type', 'application/json');

  constructor(private http: HttpClient) { }

  // Create
  createEmployee(data): Observable<any> {
    let url = `${this.baseUri}/create`;
    return this.http.post(url, data)
      .pipe(
        catchError(this.errorMgmt)
      )
  }

  // Get all employees
  getEmployees() {
    return this.http.get(`${this.baseUri}`);
  }

  // Get employee
  getEmployee(id): Observable<any> {
    let url = `${this.baseUri}/read/${id}`;
    return this.http.get(url, {headers: this.headers}).pipe(
      map((res: Response) => {
        return res || {}
      }),
      catchError(this.errorMgmt)
    )
  }

  // Update employee
  updateEmployee(id, data): Observable<any> {
    let url = `${this.baseUri}/update/${id}`;
    return this.http.put(url, data, { headers: this.headers }).pipe(
      catchError(this.errorMgmt)
    )
  }

  // Delete employee
  deleteEmployee(id): Observable<any> {
    let url = `${this.baseUri}/delete/${id}`;
    return this.http.delete(url, { headers: this.headers }).pipe(
      catchError(this.errorMgmt)
    )
  }

  // Error handling 
  errorMgmt(error: HttpErrorResponse) {
    let errorMessage = '';
    if (error.error instanceof ErrorEvent) {
      // Get client-side error
      errorMessage = error.error.message;
    } else {
      // Get server-side error
      errorMessage = `Error Code: ${error.status}\nMessage: ${error.message}`;
    }
    console.log(errorMessage);
    return throwError(errorMessage);
  }

}

We have created Angular 7 service file to handle CRUD operations in our app, now go to app.module.ts file and import this service and add into the providers array like given below.

import { ApiService } from './service/api.service';

@NgModule({
  providers: [ApiService]
})

#9 Register an Employee by Consuming RESTful API in Angualr 7 MEAN Stack App

To register an employee we will use Angular 7 service and RESTful APIs. I’ve used Reactive Forms to register an employee. We are also covering Reactive forms validations in our Angular 7 MEAN Stack app tutorial.

Check out this detailed article on Reactive Forms Validation in Angular 6 | 7

Go to components > employee-create > employee-create.component.ts file and add the following code.

import { Router } from '@angular/router';
import { ApiService } from './../../service/api.service';
import { Component, OnInit, NgZone } from '@angular/core';
import { FormGroup, FormBuilder, Validators } from "@angular/forms";

@Component({
  selector: 'app-employee-create',
  templateUrl: './employee-create.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./employee-create.component.css']
})

export class EmployeeCreateComponent implements OnInit {  
  submitted = false;
  employeeForm: FormGroup;
  EmployeeProfile:any = ['Finance', 'BDM', 'HR', 'Sales', 'Admin']
  
  constructor(
    public fb: FormBuilder,
    private router: Router,
    private ngZone: NgZone,
    private apiService: ApiService
  ) { 
    this.mainForm();
  }

  ngOnInit() { }

  mainForm() {
    this.employeeForm = this.fb.group({
      name: ['', [Validators.required]],
      email: ['', [Validators.required, Validators.pattern('[a-z0-9._%+-]+@[a-z0-9.-]+\.[a-z]{2,3}$')]],
      designation: ['', [Validators.required]],
      phoneNumber: ['', [Validators.required, Validators.pattern('^[0-9]+$')]]
    })
  }

  // Choose designation with select dropdown
  updateProfile(e){
    this.employeeForm.get('designation').setValue(e, {
      onlySelf: true
    })
  }

  // Getter to access form control
  get myForm(){
    return this.employeeForm.controls;
  }

  onSubmit() {
    this.submitted = true;
    if (!this.employeeForm.valid) {
      return false;
    } else {
      this.apiService.createEmployee(this.employeeForm.value).subscribe(
        (res) => {
          console.log('Employee successfully created!')
          this.ngZone.run(() => this.router.navigateByUrl('/employees-list'))
        }, (error) => {
          console.log(error);
        });
    }
  }

}

Go to employee-create.component.html add the following code.

<div class="row justify-content-center">
  <div class="col-md-4 register-employee">
    <!-- form card register -->
    <div class="card-body">
      <form [formGroup]="employeeForm" (ngSubmit)="onSubmit()">
        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="inputName">Name</label>
          <input class="form-control" type="text" formControlName="name">
          <!-- error -->
          <div class="invalid-feedback" *ngIf="submitted && myForm.name.errors?.required">
            Name is required.
          </div>
        </div>

        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="inputEmail3">Email</label>
          <input class="form-control" type="text" formControlName="email">
          <!-- error -->
          <div class="invalid-feedback" *ngIf="submitted && myForm.email.errors?.required">
            Enter your email.
          </div>
          <div class="invalid-feedback" *ngIf="submitted && myForm.email.errors?.pattern">
            Enter valid email.
          </div>
        </div>

        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="inputPassword3">Designation</label>
          <select class="custom-select form-control" (change)="updateProfile($event.target.value)"
            formControlName="designation">
            <option value="">Choose...</option>
            <option *ngFor="let employeeProfile of EmployeeProfile" value="{{employeeProfile}}">{{employeeProfile}}
            </option>
          </select>
          <!-- error -->
          <div class="invalid-feedback" *ngIf="submitted && myForm.designation.errors?.required">
            Choose designation.
          </div>
        </div>

        <div class="form-group">
          <label for="inputVerify3">Mobile No</label>
          <input class="form-control" type="text" formControlName="phoneNumber">
          <!-- error -->
          <div class="invalid-feedback" *ngIf="submitted && myForm.phoneNumber.errors?.required">
            Enter your phone number.
          </div>
          <div class="invalid-feedback" *ngIf="submitted && myForm.phoneNumber.errors?.pattern">
            Enter Numbers Only
          </div>
        </div>

        <div class="form-group">
          <button class="btn btn-success btn-lg btn-block" type="submit">Register</button>
        </div>
      </form>

    </div>
  </div><!-- form card register -->
</div>

#10 Show Employees List and Delete Student Object using RESTful API in MEAN Stack App

I will show the Employees list using RESTful APIs and Angular 7 service. Go to src/app/components/employee-list/employee-list.component.ts file and include the below code.

import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { ApiService } from './../../service/api.service';

@Component({
  selector: 'app-employee-list',
  templateUrl: './employee-list.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./employee-list.component.css']
})

export class EmployeeListComponent implements OnInit {
  
  Employee:any = [];

  constructor(private apiService: ApiService) { 
    this.readEmployee();
  }

  ngOnInit() {}

  readEmployee(){
    this.apiService.getEmployees().subscribe((data) => {
     this.Employee = data;
    })    
  }

  removeEmployee(employee, index) {
    if(window.confirm('Are you sure?')) {
        this.apiService.deleteEmployee(employee._id).subscribe((data) => {
          this.Employee.splice(index, 1);
        }
      )    
    }
  }

}

To display employees list open the src/app/components/employee-list/employee-list.component.html file and add the following code in it.

<div class="container">
  <!-- No data message -->
  <p *ngIf="Employee.length <= 0" class="no-data text-center">There is no employee added yet!</p>

  <!-- Employee list -->
  <table class="table table-bordered" *ngIf="Employee.length > 0">
    <thead class="table-success">
      <tr>
        <th scope="col">Employee ID</th>
        <th scope="col">Name</th>
        <th scope="col">Email</th>
        <th scope="col">Designation</th>
        <th scope="col">Phone No</th>
        <th scope="col center">Update</th>
      </tr>
    </thead>
    <tbody>
      <tr *ngFor="let employee of Employee; let i = index">
        <th scope="row">{{employee._id}}</th>
        <td>{{employee.name}}</td>
        <td>{{employee.email}}</td>
        <td>{{employee.designation}}</td>
        <td>{{employee.phoneNumber}}</td>
        <td class="text-center edit-block">
          <span class="edit" [routerLink]="['/edit-employee/', employee._id]">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-success btn-sm">Edit</button>
          </span>
          <span class="delete" (click)="removeEmployee(employee, i)">
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-danger btn-sm">Delete</button>
          </span>
        </td>
      </tr>
    </tbody>
  </table>
</div>

#11 Edit Employees Data in MEAN Stack Angualr 7 App

In order to edit employees data we need to add the following code in src/app/components/employee-edit/employee-edit.component.html file.

 <div class="row justify-content-center">
   <div class="col-md-4 register-employee">
     <!-- form card register -->
     <div class="card card-outline-secondary">
       <div class="card-header">
         <h3 class="mb-0">Edit Employee</h3>
       </div>
       <div class="card-body">
         <form [formGroup]="editForm" (ngSubmit)="onSubmit()">

           <div class="form-group">
             <label for="inputName">Name</label>
             <input class="form-control" type="text" formControlName="name">
             <div class="invalid-feedback" *ngIf="submitted && myForm.name.errors?.required">
               Name is required.
             </div>
           </div>
           <div class="form-group">

To edit employees data we need to add the following code in src/app/components/employee-edit/employee-edit.component.ts file.

import { Employee } from './../../model/Employee';
import { Component, OnInit } from '@angular/core';
import { ActivatedRoute, Router } from "@angular/router";
import { ApiService } from './../../service/api.service';
import { FormGroup, FormBuilder, Validators } from "@angular/forms";


@Component({
  selector: 'app-employee-edit',
  templateUrl: './employee-edit.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./employee-edit.component.css']
})

export class EmployeeEditComponent implements OnInit {
  submitted = false;
  editForm: FormGroup;
  employeeData: Employee[];
  EmployeeProfile: any = ['Finance', 'BDM', 'HR', 'Sales', 'Admin']

  constructor(
    public fb: FormBuilder,
    private actRoute: ActivatedRoute,
    private apiService: ApiService,
    private router: Router
  ) {}

  ngOnInit() {
    this.updateEmployee();
    let id = this.actRoute.snapshot.paramMap.get('id');
    this.getEmployee(id);
    this.editForm = this.fb.group({
      name: ['', [Validators.required]],
      email: ['', [Validators.required, Validators.pattern('[a-z0-9._%+-]+@[a-z0-9.-]+\.[a-z]{2,3}$')]],
      designation: ['', [Validators.required]],
      phoneNumber: ['', [Validators.required, Validators.pattern('^[0-9]+$')]]
    })
  }

  // Choose options with select-dropdown
  updateProfile(e) {
    this.editForm.get('designation').setValue(e, {
      onlySelf: true
    })
  }

  // Getter to access form control
  get myForm() {
    return this.editForm.controls;
  }

  getEmployee(id) {
    this.apiService.getEmployee(id).subscribe(data => {
      this.editForm.setValue({
        name: data['name'],
        email: data['email'],
        designation: data['designation'],
        phoneNumber: data['phoneNumber'],
      });
    });
  }

  updateEmployee() {
    this.editForm = this.fb.group({
      name: ['', [Validators.required]],
      email: ['', [Validators.required, Validators.pattern('[a-z0-9._%+-]+@[a-z0-9.-]+\.[a-z]{2,3}$')]],
      designation: ['', [Validators.required]],
      phoneNumber: ['', [Validators.required, Validators.pattern('^[0-9]+$')]]
    })
  }

  onSubmit() {
    this.submitted = true;
    if (!this.editForm.valid) {
      return false;
    } else {
      if (window.confirm('Are you sure?')) {
        let id = this.actRoute.snapshot.paramMap.get('id');
        this.apiService.updateEmployee(id, this.editForm.value)
          .subscribe(res => {
            this.router.navigateByUrl('/employees-list');
            console.log('Content updated successfully!')
          }, (error) => {
            console.log(error)
          })
      }
    }
  }

}
