How to integrate ButterCMS into your Angular application

Just follow the simple steps below to complete the integration and begin creating pages with Butter. Be sure to check out our full guide to creating pages using the ButterCMS Angular API.

1. First you would set up a new Customer Case Study page type in Butter and create a page. With your page defined, the ButterCMS API will return it in JSON format like this:

    "data": {
        "slug": "acme-co",
        "fields": {
            "facebook_open_graph_title": "Acme Co loves ButterCMS",
            "seo_title": "Acme Co Customer Case Study",
            "headline": "Acme Co saved 200% on Anvil costs with ButterCMS",
            "testimonial": "<p>We've been able to make anvils faster than ever before! - <em>Chief Anvil Maker</em></p>\r\n<p><img src=\"\" alt=\"\" caption=\"false\" width=\"249\" height=\"249\" /></p>",
            "customer_logo": "",

2. To integrate this into your app, create new project

ng new buttercms-project
cd buttercms-project
npm install --save @angular/material @angular/cdk
npm install --save @angular/animations
npm install -S buttercms
ng serve

3. Create typescript to export ButterCMS service:

Under src/app create a directory called services. Create a file called butterCMS.service.ts.

import Butter from 'buttercms';
export const butterService = Butter('your_api_token');

4. Inside services directory create file called index.ts to be able to import butterCMS.service into any component we want to use ButterCMS.

export * from './butterCMS.service';

5. Update the component routes:

These components are generated by angular cli using ng g component <my-new-component>

Under src/app create a file called app-routing.module.ts

import {NgModule} from '@angular/core';
import {RouterModule, Routes} from '@angular/router';
import {HomeComponent} from './home/home.component';

const appRoutes: Routes = [
    {path: 'home', component: HomeComponent},
    {path: '**', redirectTo: 'home'}
    imports: [RouterModule.forRoot(appRoutes)],
    exports: [RouterModule]
export class AppRoutingModule {

6. Under apps/home type ng g component home


import {Component, OnInit} from '@angular/core';
import {Observable} from 'rxjs/Observable';
import {ActivatedRoute} from '@angular/router';
import {butterService} from '../../services';
import {map, take} from 'rxjs/operators';

  selector: 'app-home',
  templateUrl: './home.component.html',
  styleUrls: ['./home.component.scss']

export class HomeComponent implements OnInit {
  constructor(protected route: ActivatedRoute) { }

  public page: any;

  ngOnInit() {'*', 'homepage')
      .then((res) => { =;
      }).catch((res) => {

7. Display the results in home.component.html

  <div class="container">
    <div fxLayout="column" class="details">
      <div class="blocks">
        <img src="{{page.fields.hero_image}}" "/>

      <h1 class="blocks">


      <h3>Customers Love Us!</h3>

That's it! If you browse to your homepage you'll see your homepage populated with the content you created in Butter.

Benefits of Going Headless with Angular

Angular is widely used in modern web development, and headless architectures are no exception. Here’s why going headless with Angular is a smart choice:

A well-designed component architecture

Angular's component-based architecture makes it easy to create modular and reusable components. This fits perfectly with headless setups where data is delivered via content APIs and can be displayed using these components. The outcome is a clean, maintainable, and scalable codebase that’s conducive to rapid changes.

Large library ecosystem and mature community

With Angular, you have access to a vast ecosystem of libraries and frameworks. There are numerous solutions for state management, data fetching, and UI component libraries specifically designed for headless architectures. Moreover, if you run into any issues while building your headless app, you can always reach out to the mature Angular community for support or helpful resources.

Supports modern web application paradigms

Angular is continuously updated to remain a leading framework for building modern web applications, including Progressive Web Apps (PWAs), Single Page Applications (SPAs), and micro frontends. By combining it with an Angular CMS, developers can create engaging omnichannel experiences that meet the evolving needs of modern consumers. 

Improved performance and scalability

Headless architectures separate the frontend and backend, which enables independent scaling for each layer. Angular's focus on performance optimization complements this well. Developers can leverage lazy loading and server-side rendering techniques to build a headless-powered Angular application that delivers fast loading times and a smooth user experience, even with large amounts of content.

Scalability and flexibility

Angular's scalable architecture is ideal for growing applications. In a headless CMS setup, when content and user interactions increase exponentially, Angular ensures that your application remains responsive and manageable. Its modularity allows for painless updates and expansions.

What makes ButterCMS the ideal choice for Angular apps?

ButterCMS is an API-first, enterprise-ready headless CMS that works well with all Angular applications, regardless of size or nature. Let’s explore some reasons why ButterCMS is one of the best headless CMSs for Angular:

ButterCMS and Angular components blend perfectly

Angular's component-based architecture lets you build sleek, responsive interfaces for even the most complex web applications. These components can be easily integrated with ButterCMS's drag-and-drop components, which marketers use to design dynamic page layouts .  With this powerful duo, you can develop lightning-fast, scalable, and flexible applications that deliver a frictionless user experience across all channels and devices.

It echoes Angular’s developer-friendliness

Angular’s CLI and development tools streamline the frontend development process. Similarly, the webhooks, API explorer, one-click migrations, client libraries, extensive content API documentation, and starter kits offered by ButterCMS simplify the headless API integration with Angular apps. 

ButterCMS is enterprise-ready

ButterCMS is a cloud-based, fully managed Angular CMS that provides a plethora of enterprise-grade features, including multi-site and multi-environment management, single sign-on (SSO), secure and scalable hosting on ISO-27001-compliant AWS data centers, automatic daily backups, and a reliable CDN (Content Delivery Network).

What is the future of Angular?

Angular is expected to continue its upward trajectory in the web development domain, driven by exciting trends and advancements. Here are the top Angular trends to watch out for:

Increased focus on server-side rendering (SSR)

Server-side rendering (SSR) has become imperative for better web performance and SEO. Angular's ongoing efforts to enhance SSR capabilities will make it even more effective in delivering fast, search-engine-friendly applications. This aligns perfectly with the needs of headless and API-first architectures, where performance and visibility are crucial.

Emphasis on micro frontends

The micro frontend architecture is gaining traction as a way to build scalable and maintainable web applications. As this trend continues, more development teams will harness Angular's support for micro-frontends to break down monolithic applications into independent, modular components. This will be ideal for composable setups where modularity and flexibility are paramount. 

Increased use of WebAssembly

WebAssembly (Wasm) is becoming an important technology for running high-performance applications in the browser. In the future, Angular's support for WebAssembly is expected to grow, allowing developers to seamlessly use languages like C++ or Java to write more performant web application code.

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) integrations

Artificial intelligence and machine learning are becoming increasingly accessible to developers. The future of Angular likely holds a proliferation of built-in modules and third-party libraries that make it a breeze to integrate AI and ML capabilities into your web applications. This integration will empower developers of headless architectures to create next-generation web experiences with features like intelligent content recommendations or hyper-personalized user interfaces.
