From below code,; //this piece of code gives JSON data
How can i remove html tags from here itself so that it can be sent vai
$scope.test = a

app.controller('myCtrl', function($scope, $http) {
method : "GET",
url : ""
}).then(function mySucces(response) {
var; //this gives JSON data as shown above,
$scope.test = a
}, function myError(response) {
$scope.test = response.statusText;

I tried this
$scope.test = a.replace(/<\/?[^>]+>/gi, '')
but code stopped working

JSON data with HTML code which looks bad on UI
enter image description here


I think the problem, that you are trying to replace an object a instead of the introduction strings a[i].introduction that actually contain the needed info.

So, it can be replaced in this manner: $scope.test = toValidData(a);

function toValidData(data) {
  data.articleList.forEach(function(article) {
    article.introduction = String(article.introduction).replace(/<[^>]+>/gm, '');
  return data;
