Creating a new view and controller
I found this tutorial confusing and would have appreciated a little more guidance in exactly I was supposed to do. Of course, I’m expecting to struggle more with the Angular parts as it is new to me, but I’m not sure that was the whole problem. As far as I can make out I was supposed to create some kind of new view and controller, but it wasn’t very clear what they should do. I interpreted the task as making a view and controller for each city. I had no idea how to automate this, so I manually created an html page for each city (which currently just says ‘BANANAS!!!’) and a corresponding controller, and then individually linked each controller on the index.html page.
This worked, in that clicking on Seattle or whatever took me to an exciting ‘BANANAS!!!’ page, but it’s not really very clever. It looks like the next tutorial will explain how to do things properly.
Nothing else to report for Day 3 though as I spent most of it writing the big old intro post.
