How do I "attach" a directive to a module?

I thought nothing else went in app.js, and the directives went in a separate script file.

app.js
angular.module("foobar", []);
.directive('customDirective', fuction() {
           return {
              template: "This is a Custom Directive",
           };
});

You've got some stray punctuation in the way, and some other issues:

  • you should remove the semicolon from the top line since you want to attach .directive
  • you wrote "fuction" instead of "function".
  • you callback body is different from (and more complicated than) what the challenge asks for
  • for this challenge, all the code goes in app.js

This is most curious — it looks like you have parts of task 3 there, but you have issues that would prevent passing task 1. Did you copy and paste this code from somewhere else?

Thanks! It was the semi-colon after the first statement that had me stumped. And no, I just kept adding more and more since I couldn't get it to work. Rewatched the videos 3 times, and couldn't figure out how to do it if it was all on the same file.

I see. A case of "escalating frustrations", I can sympathize. But glad you got it going! :+1:
