AngularJS Question

Using Inline Templates in Angular

I wanted to load an inline view template.

I wrapped the template in a script tag of type

text/ng-template
and set the id to
temp1.html
. and here's what my module config looks like

learningApp.config(function ($routeProvider) {
$routeProvider.
when("/first",{ controller: "SimpleController", templateUrl: "temp1.html"}).
when("/second", {controller: "SimpleController", templateUrl: "temp2.html"}).
otherwise({redirectTo : "/first"});
});


It tells me
GET http://localhost:41685/temp1.html 404 (Not Found)
in my console window meaning that it's looking for a file of that name.

My Question is: How do I configure my routes to use inline templates?

Update: Here's what my server-rendered DOM looks like

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<script src="/Scripts/angular.js"></script>
<link href="/Content/bootstrap.css" rel="stylesheet"/>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container">
<h2>Getting Started with Angular</h2>
<div class="row">
<div class="panel" ng-app="LearningApp">
<div ng-view></div>
</div>
</div>

<script type="text/ng-template" id="temp1.html">
<div class="view">
<h2>First View</h2>
<p>
Search:<input type="text" ng-model="filterText" />
</p>
<ul class="nav nav-pills">
<li ng-repeat="cust in customers | orderBy:'name' | filter: filterText "><a href="#">{{cust.name}} - {{cust.school}}</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
</script>

<script type="text/ng-template" id="temp2.html">
<div class="view">
<h2>Second View</h2>
<p>
Search:<input type="text" ng-model="filterText" />
</p>
<ul class="nav nav-pills">
<li ng-repeat="cust in customers | orderBy:'name' | filter: filterText "><a href= "#">{{cust.name}} - {{cust.school}}</a></li>
</ul>
</div>
</script>
</div>
<script src="/Scripts/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
<script src="/Scripts/bootstrap.js"></script>
<script src="/Scripts/app/LearningApp.js"></script>
</body>
</html>

Answer

Ody, you were on the right track, the only problem was that the tags are outside of the DOM element on which the ng-app directive is used. If you move it to the <body ng-app="LearningApp"> element in-line templates should work.
