Angular JS on Stratus


Locate the server.ts file at the root of AngularJS deployment and edit it to use port 10000. We need port 10000 for anything hosted under nodejs container.

The block that needs to be modified looks like this. You can comment default line and simply hard code it.

function run() {
  //const port = process.env.PORT || 4000;
    const port = 10000;

  // Start up the Node server
  const server = app();
  server.listen(port, () => {
    console.log(`Node Express server listening on http://localhost:${port}`);

After this is done we need to compile. Please run:

npm run build:ssr

server-side rendering

Once everything is done we need to symlink /srv/pwa directory to our AngularJS application. For example:

cd /srv/ ; ln -s /srv/public_html/pub/myappishere/ pwa

In this example, we symlinked /srv/pwa to the customer’s myappishere AngularJS directory

Next is based on STRATUS PWA — PWA Configuration process to create

export NVM_DIR=/srv/pwa/nvm
. "$NVM_DIR/"
cd /srv/pwa
npm run serve:ssr

Make sure to set the file as executable:

chmod a+rwx

Navigate back to the Stratus panel → Info section and Start NodeJS container. After a reboot, NodejS should start:


The last step is the Nginx portion. The goal will be to host this app under a specific URL or simply switch the entire subdomain or domain to it. STRATUS Control Panel — NodeJS > PWA

An example of URL proxy pass that can be added to Nginx includes section safely:

location ~ ^(/this/browser) {
proxy_set_header Host $http_host;
proxy_set_header X-Real-IP $remote_addr;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-For $proxy_add_x_forwarded_for;
proxy_set_header X-Forwarded-Host $http_host;
proxy_set_header X-SSL-offloaded $ssl_offloaded;
proxy_buffer_size 128k;
proxy_buffers 4 256k;
proxy_busy_buffers_size 256k;
