angularjsHow do I use the AngularJS router?

The AngularJS router is a service that helps you to set up navigation between different views of your application. It allows you to define routes, which are mappings between URLs and the components that will be displayed when those URLs are accessed.

To use the AngularJS router, you first need to add the ngRoute module to your application.

angular.module('myApp', ['ngRoute'])

Then, you need to configure the routes for your application. This is done using the $routeProvider service.

angular.module('myApp', ['ngRoute'])
  .config(function($routeProvider) {
      .when('/', {
        templateUrl: 'views/home.html',
        controller: 'HomeController'
      .when('/about', {
        templateUrl: 'views/about.html',
        controller: 'AboutController'

The above code defines two routes, / and /about, which will display the home.html and about.html views respectively. The HomeController and AboutController controllers will be used to handle the logic for each view.

Finally, you need to add a <base> tag to your index.html file, which will be used by the router to handle navigation.

<base href="/">

Once you have done this, you can use the $location service to navigate to different routes in your application. For example:


This will navigate to the /about route, which will display the about.html view.
