At the end of the article you understand what is MVC Architecture and how it works in AngularJS? | AngularJS MVC
MVC: It’s a design pattern that breaks the application into three parts Model View Controller. Using a pattern is a reusable solution but in regular javascript we organize the code differently. Another way of looking at patterns are as a templates which can be used in quite a few different scenarios.

Model:

Model is belongs to data it can be dynamic data or static which means you can get it from a database like Mongodb and you can also get data from static JSON file.

Let’s create a static JSON to defining a model. Add following lines in a data.json file.

View:

View is displaying the data of model. For this we use double curly brackets and it is lot like using JavaScript template library (like mustache.js).

Let’s create a view, following this instruction in index.html:

  • First¬†declare¬†the¬†name¬†of¬†the¬†application¬†using¬†ng-app¬†directive.
  • Download¬†and¬†add¬†the¬†angular¬†library¬†in¬†your¬†page¬†version¬†–¬†v1.3.0-rc.5.
  • Defining¬†the¬†controller¬†name¬†using¬†ng-controller¬†directive¬†in¬†your¬†parent¬†element.

    Let’s combined the code:

In this HTML we have use ng directives to rendering the data in view.

ng-repeat: The ngRepeat directive instantiates a template once per item from a  collection. Each template instance gets its own scope, where the given  loop variable is set to the current collection item, and $index is set to  the item index or key.

ng-init: The ngInit directive allows you to evaluate an expression in the current  scope.

ng-click: The ngClick directive allows you to specify custom behavior when an   element is clicked.

ng-show: The ngShow directive shows or hides the given HTML element based on    the expression provided to the ngShow attribute.

Controller

It controls how data is retrieved and displayed to end-user. which means Controller gives you control over model and view.

Creating angular module name which we have defined in ng-app directive in HTML.

We can also defined the dependency as per the module using [] brackets. For our application we need ngRoute for routing to navigate the site. For this you have to download and include

AngularUI¬†Bootstrap¬†‚Äúui.bootstrap‚Ä̬†using¬†the¬†angular¬†bootstrap¬†component.,¬†you¬†can¬†download¬†the¬†library¬†from¬†this¬†link¬†https://angular-ui.github.io.¬†and¬†add¬†in¬†html¬†page.

Creating Factory in Angularjs

AngularJS provides you three ways to create a service : factory,service and provider. A factory is a simple function which allows you to add some logic before creating the object. It returns the created object.

Scope is the glue between application controller and the view. During the template linking phase the directives set up $watch expressions on the scope. The $watch allows the directives to be notified of property changes, which allows the directive to render the updated value to the DOM.
