2. AngularJs MVC Architecture & Components

AngularJS MVC divides an application into three parts- Model part, View Part, Controller Part. Let’s see for what purpose each component of MVC serves:


Model part consists of a database (use to store data), application data (application data are variables that are specific to a user. Application and logic (Logic refers to code that is written to perform a certain task).


View part is the user interface part of an application. The information that is being displayed to the user in an application is written in this part.


The interaction between the model part and view part is controlled by a controller. It is more like software code.

Here, we will see how the components of MVC works in AngularJS:

i. Model Part In Angular Application

It responds to the request made from view part. It can obtain data dynamically means you can get data from database like from MySQL or you can get data from static JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) file.

    $scope.person =  { 
                          'Name'      :   'Ram Kumar ', 
                             'Address'  :   'AB Road, Katni',

ii. View Part In Angular Application

It is the presentation part of an application. Through the view part, a user can see the Model part. Therefore, the model and view part join together.

<h1> {{}} </h1>

iii. Controller Part In Angular Application

It is the central part of the angular application. Everything starts with a controller in angular. The model part and the view part join with each other. It means whatever happen to the model part automatically effects to the view part and whatever happens to the view part automatically effects to the model part also. Controller joins the model and view part.

function address($scope)
// Model Part is written here

Look at this final code with a model part, view part and controller part in the single code

<!doctype html>
<html ng-app>
            <title>Angular MVC </title>
            <script src=”lib/Angular/angular.min.js”></script>
            <div ng-controller = “address”>
                     <h1>{ {Person.Name} }</h1>
            <script type=”text/javascript”>
            function address($scope){
                 $scope.Person= {
                          'Name'      :   'Ram Kumar ', 
                             'Address'  :   'AB Road, Katni',
