AngularJS ng-include Directive with Example

Here we will learn ng-include directive in angularjs with example, uses of ng-include directive in angularjs and how to use ng-include directive in angularjs with example.

AngularJS ng-include Directive

In angularjs, ng-include directive will compile and include one html page in another page. Since we know that embedding one html page in another HTML page is not supported in HTML to achieve this we need to follow some custom approaches like Ajax and including HTML via server side programming.

 

In angularjs, we don't need to write any functionality to embed one external HTML into anthoer HTML just by using “ng-include” directive we can achieve this functionality. The “ng-include” fetches, compiles and includes an external HTML fragment.

AngularJS ng-include Directive Syntax

Following is the syntax of using ng-include directive in angularjs applications.

 

<div ng-include src="path of your page"/>

If you observe above syntax we are calling url of page which we need to include in src tag. We will see how to use ng-include directive in angularjs with complete example.
