AngularJS Question

'Error: [$parse:lexerr] Lexer Error: Unexpected next character' on heroku deploy

I wrote an angular app using yeoman generator. It works great in development, but after I deploy to heroku and visit a specific page I get this error:

Error: [$parse:lexerr] Lexer Error: Unexpected next character at columns 0-0 [\] in expression [\].

This description says the error occurs when an expression has a lexical error.

What's that and why is it only showing up in production?

Answer

I had some error while I used ng-click

<a ng-click="#/search/San+Francisco">test</a>

instead of ng-href

<a ng-href="#/search/San+Francisco">test</a>

I hope it might help
