  15. <h3 class="text-primary">JavaScript - Retrieve JSON File Using AngularJS</h3>
  16. <hr style="border-top:1px dotted #ccc;"/>
  17. <button class="btn btn-primary" type="button" ng-click="getData()"><span class="glyphicon glyphicon-plus"></span> Get JSON data</button>

This code contains the main function of the application. This code will fetch the data from a JSON file. To that just kindly copy and write these block of codes inside the text editor, then save it inside the js directory as script.js.

  1. var app = angular.module('myModule', [])
  2. .controller('myController', function($scope, $http){
  5. $scope.getData = function(){
  6. $http.get('data.json').then(function(response){
