ng-app Directive in AngularJS

ng-app directive is used to define AngularJS application. We can use this to auto-bootstrap an AngularJS application. It designates the root element of AngularJS application and generally kept near <body> or <html> tag. We can define any number of ng-app directive inside the HTML document but only one AngularJS application can be bootstrapped automatically (auto-bootstrapped) the other applications needs to be bootstrapped manually.

Example:

  1.    <div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="myCtrl">  
  2.   
  3.        First Name : <input type="text" ng-model="firstName"> <br />  
  4. Middle Name: <input type="text" ng-model="middleName"><br />  
  5.        Last Name : <input type="text" ng-model="lastName"><br>  
  6.   
  7.        Full Name: {{firstName + " " + middleName + " " + lastName }}          
  8.  </div>
