AngularJS’s built-in ngResource is
a great tool for natively supporting REST APIs in your Angular application. But
what happens when you need to support something besides a simple call that
retrieves a list of JSON objects? You quickly run into the limits of ngResource.
Here’s a great case where you might need to do something more complex: paging.
Say you want to get a list of objects, and there’s 10,000 or so of them. You
don’t want to send 10,000 objects to your frontend app. You want to send a
portion of them, but you still need to indicate to the app that there are more.
Surprisingly, considering how widespread this pattern is in web development,
there does not seem to be a native way to accomplish this. But you can extend
ngResource. Here’s how I did it.

So I’ve been working on a project recently where I needed a simple predicate
builder. Basically I needed a way to allow users to build a somewhat complex
search using a GUI. And since we are using AngularJS on this project, here’s a
quick article about how I did it.

So I recently was working on a site and wanted to use CSS3 columns. But I really like how the grid system works in Bootstrap, and wanted to be able to define columns in a similar way (i.e. have different number of columns depending on the screen size). Not finding any pre-cooked versions, I decided to write my own.
Strictly speaking, you don’t need Bootstrap for this to work. But I did re-use Bootstrap’s grid variables so that it breaks along the same lines that Bootstrap’s grid does. It’s also worth noting that, natively, the columns will collapse on their own if you specify a width. This method just gives you a bit more control.
