Building with AngularJS and APIs Workshop Bug

I was following the workshop and everything was going smoothly until I reached the 27:20 mark, where I input this line of code:

app.config(function($routeProvider) {
    $routeProvider.when('/:list', {controller:"ShotsListCtrl", templateURL:"partials/shots_list.html"});

I am using the latest versions of Bootstrap and Angular, not the ones supplied. This is the error the console shows:

Uncaught Error: [$injector:modulerr] Failed to instantiate module dabbble due to: Error: [$injector:unpr] Unknown provider: $routeProvider http://errors.angularjs.org/1.3.0-rc.0/$injector/unpr?p0=%24routeProvider at http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:80:12 at http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:3925:19 at getService (http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:4058:39) at Object.invoke (http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:4090:13) at runInvokeQueue (http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:4005:35) at http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:4014:11 at forEach (http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:332:20) at loadModules (http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:3995:5) at createInjector (http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:3935:11) at doBootstrap (http://dabbble2.dev/js/angular.js:1496:20) http://errors.angularjs.org/1.3.0-rc.0/$injector/modulerr?p0=dabbble&p1=Err…t%20doBootstrap%20(http%3A%2F%2Fdabbble2.dev%2Fjs%2Fangular.js%3A1496%3A20)

It has something to do with $routeProvider. After some research I found out that route went through some changes in the later versions of Angular. Could this be the source of my problem?

Yup, ngRoute is now a separate module that needs to be included in your project. Basically you need to get the angular-route.js file and add it to your project:

<script src="angular.js">
<script src="angular-route.js">

For more info, check out the documentation. It has a section on installing the module.
