Creating Simple Like and Dislike Button Using AngularJS

Language

In this tutorial, we will create a Simple Like and Dislike Using AngularJs. AngularJS is a structural framework for dynamic web apps. It is a kind of template that extends HTML to a new level of coding techniques. It is mostly used by another well-known site for creating a template.

So let's take a look.

Creating a form

This is where we will display all the data, to do that just copy/paste the code below

  1. <!DOCTYPE html>
  2. <html lang = "en">
  3. <head>
  4. <meta charset = "UTF-8" name = "viewport" content = "width-device=width, initial-scale=1"/>
  5. <link rel = "stylesheet" type = "text/css" href = "css/bootstrap.css" />
  6. <script src = "js/angular.js"></script>
  7. <script src = "js/script.js"></script>
  8. </head>
  9. <body ng-app = "simModule">
  10. <nav class = "navbar navbar-default">
  11. <div class = "container-fluid">
  12. <a class = "navbar-brand" href = "https://www.sourcecodester.com">Sourcecodester</a>
  13. </div>
  14. </nav>
  15. <div class = "row">
  16. <div class = "col-md-3"></div>
  17. <div class = "col-md-6 well" ng-controller = "simController">
  18. <h3 class = "text-primary">Simple Like and Dislike Using AngularJS</h3>
  19. <hr style = "border-top:1px dotted #000;"/>
  20. <br /><br />
  21. <table class = "table table-bordered">
  22. <tr>
  23. <th>Programming Language</th>
  24. <th>Like</th>
  25. <th>Dislike</th>
  26. <th>Action</th>
  27. </tr>
  28. </thead>
  29. <tr ng-repeat="pLang in pLangs">
  30. <td>{{pLang.name}}</td>
  31. <td>{{pLang.Likes}}</td>
  32. <td>{{pLang.Dislikes}}</td>
  33. <td><center><button class = "btn btn-primary" ng-click = "incrementUp(pLang)"><span class = "glyphicon glyphicon-thumbs-up"></span></button> | <button class = "btn btn-danger" ng-click = "decrementDown(pLang)"><span class = "glyphicon glyphicon-thumbs-down"></span></button></center></td>
  34. </tr>
  35. </tbody>
  36. </table>
  37. </div>
  38. </div>
  39. </body>
  40. </html>

Explaination

  • ng-app tells the AngularJS that this the root element of AngularJS application
  • ng-controller it initiate the function that build by an AngularJS application

Creating the script for calling the AngularJS function

This is where the angularjs function will be called to utilize the request of the user

  1. var myApp = angular.module("simModule", [])
  2. .controller("simController" , function($scope){
  3. var pLangs =[
  4. {name: "C", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  5. {name: "C++", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  6. {name: "C#", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  7. {name: "Java", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  8. {name: "HTML", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  9. {name: "PHP", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  10. {name: "VB.NET", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  11. {name: "Python", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  12. {name: "Pearl", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  13. {name: "Ruby", Likes: 0, Dislikes: 0},
  14. ];
  15.  
  16. $scope.pLangs = pLangs;
  17.  
  18. $scope.incrementUp = function(pLang){
  19. pLang.Likes++;
  20. }
  21.  
  22. $scope.decrementDown = function(pLang){
  23. pLang.Dislikes++;
  24. }
  25. });

Explaination

The code above create a AngularJS module to envelop it to the targeted element in the HTML, then it calls out the common function through the AngularJS controller

  • $scope.incrementUp function will increment the Like button when clicked
  • $scope.decrementDown function will decrement the Dislike button when clicked
