hey, trying to add bootstrap-sass and angular-ui-bootstrap with no luck, any pointers?

Try requiring the actual css file in the main app.js as well as injecting ui-bootstrap into your main module
Thats pretty much how i got angular material to work throughout the whole site

@brownish thanks, i'll do that

@i-am-dror lemme know if it works. I havent tried using ui-bootstrap with ng6 but can imagine the issues you'd face wouldnt be dissimilar with those I've dealt with

@brownish the ui-bootstrap is working, thanks, still trying to figure how to import the css. i got an error regarding the glyphicons.

ERROR in ./~/bootstrap/dist/fonts/glyphicons-halflings-regular.ttf
Module parse failed: /Users/dror/workspace/NG6-starter/node_modules/bootstrap/dist/fonts/glyphicons-halflings-regular.ttf Line 1: Unexpected token ILLEGAL
You may need an appropriate loader to handle this file type.

what i did for angular-material was create another file in the client folder called app.config.js and inside it i put
let css = () => {

export default css;
then in my app.js i put:
import css from './app.config';

angular.module( 'app', [
that seemed to work
i dont think it's the most elegant solution but it seems to work lol

@brownish import 'angular-material/angular-material.css';
directly in app.js

i guess the problem is with compiling font because i have the same problem with font-awesome

@davidfhaines I think I added app.config.js and the require bit so that I could include it in the function that app.config exports without importing the .css immediately upon importing app.config from app.js
I'll probably just import directly into app.js though from now on
@davidfhaines any idea why the css for angular-material doesn't automatically get imported when i import angular-material in app.js?

the main entry point defined in package.json is index
// Should already be required, here for clarity

// Load Angular and dependent libs

// Now load Angular Material

// Export namespace
module.exports = 'ngMaterial';
and doesn't appear to require the css
whereas its bower main does
  "main": [
not sure if that's by design or an oversight

@brownish either way, seems strange that the package contents would differ between bower and npm

@davidfhaines ahhhh i see. That makes sense
I was wondering, lol

how can i run the app without bundling, so it will be easier to use the debug console?
David Haines

@i-am-dror if your issue is that the stacktrace output references bundle.js, have a look at this thread angular/angular.js#5217
i added the following to app.js to resolve
.config(($provide) => {
  $provide.decorator('$exceptionHandler', () => {
    return (exception, cause) => {
      setTimeout(() => {
        throw exception;

question: how do I bind something from controller: lets say I have in constructor:

this.value = null;

then sometimes after I update this value, how do I trigger update in the view?



if I set something else - my view doesn't get updated
I mean after the view has been loaded

@rstormsf value should be bound and updated automatically on change
class TwoWayBindingController {
  constructor() { = 'twoWayBinding';
    this.value = null;

  changeMe () {
    this.value = Math.random();

export default TwoWayBindingController;

<input data-ng-model="vm.value">
<button data-ng-click="vm.changeMe()">Change Me</button>
