Backand SDK for Angular 1

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import backandAngular1Sdk from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@backand/angular1-sdk';



Backand SDK for Angular.js 1.x. This is the documentation for Back&'s Angular 1 SDK. This SDK enables you to communicate comfortably and quickly with your Backand app. It wraps the vanilla-sdk to allow you to work with Back& more easily when working on projects based on Angular.js 1.

NOTE: Updating an existing app to our new Angular 1 SDK? We've written an article to help! Head to http://docs.backand.com to get started.


This SDK is an Angular 1 wrapper around our vanilla-sdk. This provides convenient objects and properties for Angular 1 apps working with Back&. You can refer to the vanilla-sdk's readme for a full API reference. Follow the instructions below to install our Angular 1 SDK!


To install the Angular 1 SDK, use the correct command for your dependency management platform:

Provider Command
npm $ npm i -S @backand/angular1-sdk
yarn $ yarn add @backand/angular1-sdk
bower $ bower install backand-angular1-sdk
clone/download via Git $ git clone $ git clone https://github.com/backand/angular1-sdk.git


Include the following tags in your index.html file to start working with the SDK via the CDN:

  <script src="//cdn.backand.net/vanilla-sdk/1.0.9/backand.js"></script>;
  <script src="//cdn.backand.net/angular1-sdk/1.9.5/backand.provider.js"></script>

Or, you can include the locally-installed SDKs with the following tags:

<script src="lib/backand-vanilla-sdk/dist/backand.js"></script>
<script src="lib/backand-angular1-sdk/dist/backand.provider.js"></script>

Quick start

Getting started with the SDK is as simple as configuring access to a Back& application, then calling getList on a relevant object:

  .module('myApp', ['backand'])
  .config(function (BackandProvider) {
      appName: 'APP_NAME',
      anonymousToken: 'ANONYMOUS_TOKEN'
  .controller('myAppCtrl', ['$scope', '$http', 'Backand', function myAppCtrl() {


Review the full API reference at our vanilla-sdk's github to get started with your back end!
