Angular Socket.io Seed
Start an awesome app with AngularJS on the front, Socket.io + Express + Node on the back. This project is an application skeleton for writing AngularJS apps that use web sockets to add real-time functionality. If you’re not planning on using web sockets, you should consider the Angular Express Seed instead.
The seed contains angular libraries, test libraries and a bunch of scripts all preconfigured for instant web development gratification. Just clone the repo (or download the zip/tarball) and you’re ready to develop your application.
The seed app shows how to wire together Angular client-side components with Socket.io and Express on the server. It also illustrates writing angular partials/views with the Jade templating library.
Note: Although Jade supports interpolation, you should be doing that mostly on the client. Mixing server and browser templating will convolute your app. Instead, use Jade as a syntactic sugar for HTML, and let AngularJS take care of interpolation on the browser side.

Running the app
Runs like a typical express app:
Receiving updates from upstream
Just fetch the changes and merge them into your project with git.
Alternatively, you can update AngularJS with Bower:
bower update angular
