AngularJS Includes

Last Updated: May 13, 2022


HTML does not support embedding HTML pages within HTML. To do so, you have to use AngularJS Include Directives. The ng-controller directive can be used to embed an html page within HTML.


<element ng-include=" "> content <element>

You can use AngularJS ng-include directive to include HTML from another file.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<script src=""></script>

<body ng-app="">

<div ng-include="'HTMLFileName'"></div>


Include AngularJS Code

The HTML files that you include using the ng-include directive can also contain the angular js code. 

Ninjas.html file:

  <tr ng-repeat="x in names">
    <td>{{ x.Name }}</td>
    <td>{{ x.Place }}</td>

Include the above "Ninjas.html" in your web page, and all AngularJS code, including that inside the included file, will be executed.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<script src=""></script>

<div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="customersCtrl"> 
  <div ng-include="'myTable.htm'"></div>

var app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.controller('customersCtrl', function($scope, $http) {
    $http.get("customers.php").then(function (response) {
        $scope.names =;

Include Cross Domains

You usually can't use the ng-include directive to include files from other domains. But you can provide a whitelist of legal files and/or domains to your application's config function to include files from other domains.

Note: Make that the target server enables cross-domain file access
