AngularJS Question

Unit Testing an Angular Service using Karma and Jasmine

I am new to angular and TDD in angular

I want to test drive a service, but before that wanted to understand the flow. I am having a few issues. I keep getting this error

Firefox 47.0.0 (Windows 10 0.0.0) ERROR
Error: [$injector:nomod] http://errors.angularjs.org/1.5.7/$injector/nomod?p0=myApp
at C:/domain/domain/test/unitTest/spec/client/lib/angular.min.js:6

My app.js file is as follow

angular.module('myApp', [
.config(['$locationProvider', '$routeProvider', function ($locationProvider, $routeProvider) {

//some code here


My services.js code is as follows

.service('usersLocationService', function () {
this.SetLocation = function (place) {
var address = {};
//some code here
return address;

My karma.conf.js file is as follows

// Karma configuration

module.exports = function(config) {

// base path that will be used to resolve all patterns (eg. files, exclude)
basePath: '',

// frameworks to use
// available frameworks: https://npmjs.org/browse/keyword/karma-adapter
frameworks: ['jasmine', 'requirejs'],

// list of files / patterns to load in the browser
files: [



// list of files to exclude
exclude: [

// preprocess matching files before serving them to the browser
// available preprocessors: https://npmjs.org/browse/keyword/karma-preprocessor
preprocessors: {

// test results reporter to use
// possible values: 'dots', 'progress'
// available reporters: https://npmjs.org/browse/keyword/karma-reporter
reporters: ['progress'],

// web server port
port: 9876,

// enable / disable colors in the output (reporters and logs)
colors: true,

// level of logging
// possible values: config.LOG_DISABLE || config.LOG_ERROR || config.LOG_WARN || config.LOG_INFO || config.LOG_DEBUG
logLevel: config.LOG_INFO,

// enable / disable watching file and executing tests whenever any file changes
autoWatch: true,

// start these browsers
// available browser launchers: https://npmjs.org/browse/keyword/karma-launcher
browsers: ['Firefox'],

// Continuous Integration mode
// if true, Karma captures browsers, runs the tests and exits
singleRun: false,

// Concurrency level
// how many browser should be started simultaneous
concurrency: Infinity

And finally my unitTest case code is

"use strict";
describe('Test Suite for UserLocationService', function () {

beforeEach(inject(function (_usersLocationService_) {
this.sut = _usersLocationService_;

it('Should return the address from the google location place', function() {
var place = {};
var data = this.sut.SetLocation(place);


There is no angular.module.mock function. It is
