Close, but your syntax is a little off.

angular.module ('foobar', [])
.directive('customDirective', function(){
     //directive code goes here
});

Remember, to create a directive you need to pass the module the name of the directive, and the function that makes up the directive.

What you did is pass it a function, but not a directive name.
