Working VS player mobile theme for Open Labyrinth


Online demo

An online demo is available online at:


A mobile player for Open Labyrinth virtual patients. Although the Open Labyrinth (OL) application is a client-server application and, thus, can be run using a mobile browser, the user experience (UX) suffers in small screens.

We followed a bottom-to-up approach, designing the player not only to fit in small screens, but also to maximise the user experience, when played in a mobile device.

Technical installation instructions

  1. Clone the following repository git clone
  2. Go to project folder and install dependencies: npm install
  3. Launch development server, and open localhost:4200 in your browser: npm start

Task automation is based on NPM scripts.

Tasks Description
npm start Run development server on http://localhost:4200/
npm run build [-- --env=prod] Lint code and build app for production in dist/ folder
npm test Run unit tests via Karma in watch mode
npm run test:ci Lint code and run unit tests once for continuous integration
npm run e2e Run e2e tests using Protractor
npm run lint Lint code
npm run translations:extract Extract strings from code and templates to src/app/translations/template.json
npm run docs Display project documentation

When building the application, you can specify the target environment using the additional flag --env <name> (do not forget to prepend -- to pass arguments to npm scripts).

The default build environment is prod.

Development server

This project was generated with ngX-Rocket version 1.3.3

Run npm start for a dev server. Navigate to http://localhost:4200/. The app will automatically reload if you change any of the source files. You should not use ng serve directly, as it does not use the backend proxy configuration by default.

Code scaffolding

Run npm run generate -- component <name> to generate a new component. You can also use npm run generate -- directive|pipe|service|class|module.

If you have installed angular-cli globally with npm install -g @angular/cli, you can also use the command ng generate directly.

Additional tools Tasks are mostly based on the angular-cli tool. Use ng help to get more help or go check out the Angular-CLI README.

What's in the box

The app template is based on HTML5, TypeScript and Sass. The translation files use the common JSON format. Tools

Development, build and quality processes are based on angular-cli and NPM scripts, which includes:

  • Optimized build and bundling process with Webpack
  • Development server with backend proxy and live reload
  • Cross-browser CSS with autoprefixer and browserslist
  • Asset revisioning for better cache management
  • Unit tests using Jasmine and Karma
  • End-to-end tests using Protractor
  • Static code analysis: TSLint, Codelyzer, Stylelint and HTMLHint
  • Local knowledge base server using Hads


  • Angular 2
  • Bootstrap 4
  • Font Awesome
  • RxJS
  • ng-bootsrap
