What is wrong with my AngularJS routes?


I’ve created an AngularJS sandbox, so to speak. I used the template html provided by Bootstrap for setup speed purposes, and I plan on using Bootstrap to fancy it up the fast way. While setting everything up, I noticed that my routes aren’t working properly. In my index.html file, I’ve tried placing my angular file in several places, but I don’t believe that’s the issue. I’ve also tried using <ng-view></ng-view>, instead of using a div. In app.js, I’ve tried renaming the route to the templateUrl from the root directory to the end file, app/home/home.html, along with many other configurations. When I load in my browser, all I get is my navigation menu. I don’t even get the html from the templateUrl. I may be wrong about all of this, but I can’t figure it out. I’ve placed a generic Bootstrap navigation in my index.html file for my initial set up. What could be my issue?

Looks like its just a typo in your $routeProvider. templateURL should just be templateUrl.
