AngularJS $http

AngularJS $http is a core service for reading data from web servers.

$http.get(url) is the function to use for reading server data.

AngularJS Example

<div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="customersCtrl">

<ul>
  <li ng-repeat="x in names">
    {{ x.Name + ', ' + x.Country }}
  </li>
</ul>

</div>

<script>
var app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.controller('customersCtrl', function($scope, $http) {
    $http.get("http://www.w3schools.com/angular/customers.php")
    .success(function(response) {$scope.names = response.records;});
});
</script>

Application explained:

The AngularJS application is defined by ng-app. The application runs inside a <div>.

The ng-controller directive names the controller object.

The customersCtrl function is a standard JavaScript object constructor.

AngularJS will invoke customersCtrl with a $scope and $http object.

$scope is the application object (the owner of application variables and functions).

 $http is an XMLHttpRequest object for requesting external data.

$http.get() reads JSON data from http://www.w3schools.com/angular/customers.php.

If success, the controller creates a property (names) in the scope, with JSON data from the server.
