AngularJS Dependency Injection

AngularJS comes with a built-in dependency injection mechanism. It facilitates you to divide your application into multiple different types of components which can be injected into each other as dependencies.

Dependency Injection is a software design pattern that specifies how components get holds of their dependencies. In this pattern, components are given their dependencies instead of coding them within the component.

Modularizing your application makes it easier to reuse, configure and test the components in your application. Following are the core types of objects and components:

  • value
  • factory
  • service
  • provider
  • constant

These objects and components can be injected into each other using AngularJS Dependency Injection.


# Value

In AngularJS, value is a simple object. It can be a number, string or JavaScript object. It is used to pass values in factories, services or controllers during run and config phase.
