Getting started with AngularJS.

In this article I am going to demonstrate about how to create basic AngularJS application.
In this demo application our main concern will be on creating first AngularJS application using module, Directives, Expressions.

  • What is Angular JS?

A client-side JavaScript Framework for adding interactivity to HTML.

If you’re using JavaScript to create a dynamic website,
Angular is a good choice.
•Angular helps you organize your JavaScript
•Angular helps create responsive (as in fast) websites.
•Angular plays well with jQuery
•Angular is easy to test

  • Directives

A Directive is a marker on a HTML tag that tells Angular to run or reference some JavaScript code.

  • Modules

•Where we write pieces of our Angular application.
•Makes our code more maintainable, testable, and readable.
•Where we define dependencies for our app.

var app = angular.module('company', []);

In above line angular is ref of AngularJS.
"company" is application name.
[] show dependencies of application.

  • Controllers

Controllers are where we define our app’s behaviour by defining functions and values.

app.controller('EmployeeController', function () {
    this.employee = gem
});

var gem = {
    name:           "Rohit Mane",
    salary:         20000.95,
    address:        "Pune"   }
           
In above case "EmployeeController" is controller name.
employee is one object we assigning some vales to that object.


Access that values in index.html using ng-app and ng-controller:

<div ng-app="company">
    <p>
        {{"hello" + " you"}}
    </p>
    <div ng-controller="EmployeeController as emp">
        <h1>
            {{emp.employee.name}}
        </h1>
        <h2>
            ${{emp.employee.salary}}
        </h2>
        <p>
            {{emp.employee.address}}
        </p>
    </div>
</div>

Step-wise procedure to create First AngularJS application: Using Visual Studio
Step 1 : I am using VS2015 to create application.






Step 2 : Click on File > New Project > ASP.Net Web Application



Step 3 : Select MVC Template and click OK.




Step 4 : After creating project its showing this hierarchy.


Step 5 : Open Index.html in Home folder comment that code excluding first 3 lines.



Step 6 : Add angular.min.js and app.js files in script folder


Step 7 : Add references of that files in Layout.html file in View>Shared path.

    <script type="text/javascript" src="~/Scripts/angular.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="~/Scripts/app.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="bootstrap.min.css" />
Step 8 : Add following code in app.js file.
var app = angular.module('company', []);
app.controller('EmployeeController', function () {
    this.employee = gem
});

var gem = {
    name:           "Rohit Mane",
    salary:         20000.95,
    address:        "Pune"
} 

Step 9: Add following code in Index.html file.
<div ng-app="company">
    <p>
        {{"hello" + " you"}}
    </p>
    <div ng-controller="EmployeeController as emp">
        <h1>
            {{emp.employee.name}}
        </h1>
        <h2>
            ${{emp.employee.salary}}
        </h2>
        <p>
            {{emp.employee.address}}
        </p>
    </div>
</div>
To test the process you can build and run an application.
Execute it using Ctrl + Shift + W or right click on application and click view in browser. I hope it works fine.
