• Ok, so to reproduce the problem I prepare a basic angular page loaded as nodebb pluging. It will certainly be easiest to check what's going wrong with the 0.7.0 version.

    Here the plugin.json
    "id": "nodebb-plugin-angtest",
    "name": "Test angular app within nodebb",
    "description": "An angular app to test if it works with nodebb 0.7",
    "library": "./library.js",
    "hooks": [
    { "hook": "static:app.load", "method": "init" },
    { "hook": "filter:header.build", "method": "addNavigation" }
    "staticDirs": {
    "static": "./static"
    "less": [
    "scripts": [
    "templates": "./templates"

    The library.js

    "use strict";
    var plugin = {};
    function renderCustomPage(req, res, next) {
        // charger la page
    plugin.init = function(params, callback) {
        // ajouter les routes
        var app = params.router,
            middleware = params.middleware;
        app.get('/angular', middleware.buildHeader, renderCustomPage);
        app.get('/templates/angular.tpl', renderCustomPage);
        app.get('/api/angular', renderCustomPage);
    plugin.addNavigation = function(header, callback) {
        // ajouter le lien dans le menu de navigation principal
            class: '',
            route: '/angular',
            iconClass: 'fa fa-google',
            title: 'angular',
            text: 'angular'
        callback(null, header);
    module.exports = plugin;

    The app.js

    'use strict';
    var myApp = angular.module('myApp',[]);
    myApp.controller('myCtrl', ['$scope',function($scope) {
        $scope.firstName= "John";
        $scope.lastName= "Doe";

    With this basic example I have the same behaviour. When I click on the google icon in the head menu angular module and controller are not loaded. I need to refresh the page (F5) to load the angular part.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  • I would love to see a fix for this and maybe a barebone angular plugin to see how it all ties together? 🙂

    Sorry, I forgot to get back to this. Can you publish your nodebb-plugin-angtest and I'll try running it first on 0.6x and then 0.7x and see if I can isolate the problem

  • hello,
    here you will find the code https://github.com/ricoud/nodebb-plugin-angtest
    Thanks in advance

  • @psychobunny did you have time to test the plugin?

  • any luck? @ricoud @psychobunny

  • Same with 0.7.1
    Additional info when calling directly the page (typing the address) everything works. It seems that angular isn't loaded when calling the page through menu.

  • Same behaviour with 0.8.0 😥

  • Ok I tried to use filter:scripts.get hook to load angularjs same thing
    Then I include angularjs inside the scripts object of the js.js file find in src/meta directory, same behaviour. 😞
    Can someone help to resolve this issue as I really want to include my site as a nodebb plugin.
    Thanks in advance 😄

    Yikes. I always forget stuff I promise on community forum haha. Your best bet always is to create an issue on our github tracker.

    "Angular not working with nodebb" or something. I'm sorry for the delay

    Don't forget to add as much information as you can 🙂
