angularjsHow do I use an arrow function in AngularJS?

An arrow function is a type of JavaScript function that uses the => syntax to define the function. In AngularJS, arrow functions can be used to create custom filters, directives, and services.

For example, to create a custom filter to capitalize the first letter of a string, the following code can be used:

angular.module('myApp', [])
  .filter('capitalize', () => {
    return (input) => {
      return input.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + input.slice(1);

This code will create a capitalize filter that can be used in the HTML template as follows:

<p>{{ 'hello world' | capitalize }}</p>

The output of this code will be:

Hello world

The code consists of the following parts:

  • angular.module('myApp', []) - this sets up the module for the filter
  • .filter('capitalize', () => {}) - this defines the capitalize filter
  • return (input) => {...} - this defines the function that will be used for the filter
  • input.charAt(0).toUpperCase() + input.slice(1) - this is the actual logic of the filter, which takes the first character of the input string and capitalizes it, then adds the rest of the string
