Quick start with Angular

Give a proper backend to your Angular app.


This quick start guide focuses exclusively on the frontend. To ensure the functionality of this code, your Manifest backend must be up and running at http://localhost:1111.

1. Create a Angular app

If you already have your Angular app up and running, skip this step.

We will use the Angular CLI to create a new Angular project. You can replace my-client by the name of your front-end app.

ng new my-client
cd my-client
ng serve

2. Install Manifest SDK

Install the JS SDK from the root of your Angular app.

npm i @mnfst/sdk

3. Use it in your app

In that example we are using a Cat entity created previously. Replace it by your own entity.

// app.component.ts

import { Component } from '@angular/core'
import Manifest from '@mnfst/sdk'

selector: 'app-root',
templateUrl: './app.component.html',
styleUrls: ['./app.component.css']
export class AppComponent {
cats: { id: number, name: string }[] = []

async ngOnInit() {
// Init SDK.
const manifest = new Manifest()

// Fetch the list of Cats.
const result = await manifest.from('cats').find()
this.cats =

And in the template:

<li *ngFor="let cat of cats">{{ }}</li>
