  1. Install the plugin into your Angular.js project, manually or via

bower install angular-timeline --save

  1. Include angular-timeline.css in your app:

<link rel="stylesheet" href="bower_components/angular-timeline/dist/angular-timeline.css"/>

  1. Include angular-timeline.js in your app:

<script src="bower_components/angular-timeline/dist/angular-timeline.js"></script>

  1. Add angular-timeline as a new module dependency in your angular app.

var myapp = angular.module('myapp', ['angular-timeline']);

  1. To define a timeline, do the following (either manually or using ng-repeat on a dataset):
    // in controller
    $ = [{
      badgeClass: 'info',
      badgeIconClass: 'glyphicon-check',
      title: 'First heading',
      content: 'Some awesome content.'
    }, {
      badgeClass: 'warning',
      badgeIconClass: 'glyphicon-credit-card',
      title: 'Second heading',
      content: 'More awesome content.'
    <!-- view -->
      <timeline-event ng-repeat="event in events" side="right">
        <timeline-badge class="{{event.badgeClass}}">
          <i class="glyphicon {{event.badgeIconClass}}"></i>
        <timeline-panel class="{{event.badgeClass}}">

There is a bit of markup here but <timeline-heading> is optional. <timeline-badge> is for the centre line between the two sides, and should represent the event type that occured.


  • The demo uses angular-scroll-animate to trigger CSS animations when timeline events scroll into view. It’s totally optional to include this or not and is just there for effect.

  • Panels are now designed to float left, then right, side to side. Float right is forced on smaller (eg. mobile) devices.

  • If you define the events in an array and have HTML content to output, use ng-bind-html={{event.attribute}} and require the ngSanitize module.

  • You can use either the SASS styles directly file under /dist or the compiled CSS files, up to you :)

  • If you are using Bootstrap 3 it affects the timeline CSS, so include angular-timeline-bootstrap.[css|scss]} to re-adjust the offsets e.g:

  <link rel="stylesheet" href="bower_components/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.css" />
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="bower_components/angular-timeline/dist/angular-timeline-bootstrap.css" />
  <script src="bower_components/angular-timeline/dist/angular-timeline.js"></script>
