Displaying OpenEdge Data in an AngularJS Web App
One of the goals of this project was to host everything on Modulus, so I had to find some way to serve static web content using Node. Luckily, there’s a Node package exactly for this purpose (it seems there always is). Called Serverfy, you can simply run this package in your directory of static web content and it automatically re-formats everything into the Node application format. In a nutshell, it utilizes the node-static module to format the server correctly, then responds to each GET request for page data by serving the entire HTML file as a response. My (very simple) data table is pictured below, but once you have the data it’s easy to dress it up with a nice UI and display it in a visually appealing format to the end user.
