Angular Schematics for Bootstrap

List of tools to add Bootstrap to an Angular project with @ng-bootstrap/ng-bootstrap and basic scss override. It does write in angular.json config file and can remove the default styles.css file. Can also run Font Awesome install.


You need global install of Typescript and tslint

npm install tslint typescript -g

Using Shematics

  • Create a new project with Angular CLI
  • Simply add the package
ng add @aboudard/bootstrap-schematics
  • Eventually remove the current package

List of options

  • removeStyles : When true, removes the default syles.css in root folder
  • replaceAppTemplate : When true, replaces the app.component and adds other classic bootstrap components
  • installFontAwesome : When true, installs font awesome and minimal config

Option Font Awesome

  • If you choose this option, just call, where needed, the service method under /shared/services/utils.service. It does use free-solid icon package by default, and adds faCheck icon via the library.
import {FaIconLibrary} from '@fortawesome/angular-fontawesome';
import {
} from '@fortawesome/free-solid-svg-icons';

  providedIn: 'root'
export class UtilsService {
  constructor(private faIconLibrary: FaIconLibrary) { }
  initFaIcons(): void {


To test locally, install @angular-devkit/schematics-cli globally and use the schematics command line tool. That tool acts the same as the generate command of the Angular CLI, but also has a debug mode.

Check the documentation with

schematics --help

Run these tasks locally to see the results of schematics in the sandbox app :

npm run build
npm run link:schematic
npm run test

Or run without app tests :

npm run buildschematics

Unit Testing

npm run test will run the unit tests, using Jasmine as a runner and test framework.


To publish, simply do:

npm run build
npm publish

That's it!
