I have been playing with AngularJS for some time now and I’m still a little confused with the vocabulary they use. For that reason I decided to list the most common “things” that are part of an AngularJS app and explain what they are.
A module is a container for all the other “things”(controllers, directives, filters, etc) that are part of an AngularJS app. There is usually and application level module for the whole app and smaller modules for different components. You can create a module using:
1 var someModule = angular.module('someModule', );
