AngularJS Question

AngularJS sample code showing code not data

I'm trying to follow a tutorial for MEAN stack starting with Angular and even the provided sample code won't work. The code shows instead of the data, eg. "{{created_buy}}" instead of "David". I'm new to Angular so I feel like I might be missing something obvious...


<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.2.0/angular.min.js"></script>
<script src="javascripts/chirpApp.js"></script>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://maxcdn.bootstrapcdn.com/bootstrap/3.3.2/css/bootstrap.min.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheets/style.css">
<body ng-app="chirpApp">
<div id='main' class="container" ng-controller="mainController">
<div class="col-md-offset-2 col-md-8">
<div class="clearfix">
<form ng-Submit="post()">
<input required type="text" class="form-control" placeholder="Your name" ng-model="newPost.created_by" />
<textarea required class="form-control" maxlength="200" rows="3" placeholder="Say something" ng-model="newPost.text"></textarea>
<input class="btn submit-btn pull-right" type="submit" value="Chirp!" />
<div id="post-stream">
<h4>Chirp Feed</h4>
<div class="post" ng-repeat="post in posts | orderBy:'created_at':true" ng-class-odd="'odd'" ng-class-even="'even'">
<small>Posted by @{{post.created_by}}</small>
<small class="pull-right">{{post.created_at | date:"h:mma 'on' MMM d, y"}}</small>


var app = angular.module('chirpApp', []);

app.controller('mainController', function($scope){
$scope.posts = [];
$scope.newPost = {created_by: '', text: '', created_at: ''};

$scope.post = function(){
$scope.newPost.created_at = Date.now();
$scope.newPost = {created_by: '', text: '', created_at: ''};


You need to refer the correct js file

 <script src="javascripts/chirpApp.js"></script>

but you have mentioned app.js, so it should be

 <script src="javascripts/app.js"></script>
