AngularJS Question

What's the difference between ng-model and ng-bind

I'm currently learning angularjs and am having difficulty understanding the difference between

ng-bind
and
ng-model
.

Can anyone tell me how they differ and when one should be used over the other?

Answer

ng-bind has one-way data binding ($scope --> view). It has a shortcut {{ val }} which displays the scope value $scope.val inserted into html where val is a variable name.

ng-model is intended to be put inside of form elements and has two-way data binding ($scope --> view and view --> $scope) e.g. <input ng-model="val"/>.
