Took some time to rewrite my drupal/bootstrap site into Angular.js and slim php. Using slim and a seed project I quickly had a rest api to get the different content types, Blog, Page etc. I am using the Page content type to make other dynamic parts to the site like Footer and Header.
After a quick migration from drupal to a more basic MySQL db layout (soon mongodb?) I put together a Angular.js front end.
Still have a ton to learn about Angular and I figure this will only help. I will post some notes soon on Angular for a different project I am working on.
Some good links
They have a great tutorial there.

Great Seed for a Project
This seems like it could have been a good starter to build out the site http://yeoman.io/ But I already had a Twitter Bootstrap theme in place and ready.
