Angular Routing using ngRoute

Basic example

This example shows setting up a small application with 3 routes, each with it's own view and controller, using the controllerAs syntax.
We configure our router at the angular .config function

1. We inject $routeProvider into .config
2. We define our route names at the .when method with a route definition object.
3. We supply the .when method with an object specifying our template or templateUrl, controller and controllerAs


angular.module('myApp', ['ngRoute'])
 .controller('controllerOne', function() {
 this.message = 'Hello world from Controller One!';
 .controller('controllerTwo', function() {
 this.message = 'Hello world from Controller Two!';
 .controller('controllerThree', function() {
 this.message = 'Hello world from Controller Three!';
 .config(function($routeProvider) {
 .when('/one', {
 templateUrl: 'view-one.html',
 controller: 'controllerOne',
 controllerAs: 'ctrlOne'
 .when('/two', {
 templateUrl: 'view-two.html',
 controller: 'controllerTwo',
 controllerAs: 'ctrlTwo'
 .when('/three', {
 templateUrl: 'view-three.html',
 controller: 'controllerThree',
 controllerAs: 'ctrlThree'
 // redirect to here if no other routes match
 redirectTo: '/one'

Then in our HTML we define our navigation using elements with href, for a route name of helloRoute we will route as My route

We also provide our view with a container and the directive ng-view to inject our routes.


<div ng-app="myApp">
<!-- links to switch routes -->
 <a href="#/one">View One</a>
 <a href="#/two">View Two</a>
 <a href="#/three">View Three</a>
 <!-- views will be injected here -->
 <div ng-view></div>
 <!-- templates can live in normal html files -->
 <script type="text/ng-template" id="view-one.html">
 <script type="text/ng-template" id="view-two.html">
 <script type="text/ng-template" id="view-three.html">
