AngularJS Question

htaccess redirect for Angular routes

I have an angular application with several routes, such as:

Using angular's html5 routing mode, these resolve correctly when you click links to them from within the application, but of course are 404 errors when you do a hard refresh. To fix this, I've tried implementing a basic htaccess rewrite.

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.html [L]

This works for the angular requests, however when I try to load scripts or make ajax calls within my domain, such as:

<script src="/app/programs/script.js"></script>

This script doesn't load - it's request is redirected and it tries to load the index.html page as the .htaccess thinks it should reroute the request - not knowing that this file does exist and it should load the file instead of redirect.

Is there any way I can have the htaccess redirect the request to index.html (with the view parameters) only if there is not an actual file that it should resolve to?


Use a snippet like:

    RewriteEngine on
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -s [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
    RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]

    RewriteRule ^(.*) /index.html [NC,L]

This will skip to the actual resource if there is one and to index.html for all angularjs routes.
