AngularJS Question

AngularJS : ui-router components not showing

I am trying to write a simple angular application that uses angular ui-router to display components in my application.

I can get it to work using templates and controllers, but when I refactor to components they don't render on the screen. I don't get any console errors either.

Here is my app, it is based on the angular sample application Hello Solarsytem


var myApp = angular.module('materialThings', ['ui.router']);

myApp.config(function ($stateProvider) {
// An array of state definitions
var states = [
name: 'about',
url: '/about',
component: 'about'

// Loop over the state definitions and register them
states.forEach(function (state) {

myApp.run(function($rootScope) {
$rootScope.$on("$stateChangeError", console.log.bind(console));

angular.module('materialThings').component('about', {

Refer to this question: Angular - UI.Router not loading component

If you are using 0.3.x that won't work. Upgrade to 1.0.0 (I think beta is the latest) and try please.

component attribute is available from ui-router@1.0.0(see here and in CHANGELOG.MD - it was added in 1.0.0-aplpha) so it's not available 0.3.1
