[SOLVED] Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token

The console keeps showing an error on: angular.module('todoListApp'); .directive('helloWorld', function () { return { template:"This is the Hello World directive", restrict:"E" };

}); It says "Uncaught SyntaxError: Unexpected token " I have played with the whitespace and such, but no luck.

Hi Ian Blakeslee, glad you got it sorted. I've updated your question title to reflect this.

Solved it. I had to remove the semi-colon from the end of the angular.module() line.
