Building a Hacker News Clone in AngularJS – Part 5

Hi Everyone! I’m Dakota Lee Martinez. In this video series I’ll be using the Hacker News API to build out a Hacker News Clone in AngularJS.

These videos are accompanied by a series of blog posts at You can find the written explanation of the process and code samples there.

Building a Hacker News Clone in AngularJS – Part 5

In this video, we’re going to … make sure that we’re displaying all of the comments related to a particular post by adding an ng-repeat.

To do this, this video covers the following topics:

* adding vm.comments to the StoryController and setting it equal to the value of the “kids” property retrieved from the Hacker News API’s reponse data.
* adding {{ vm.comments }} to the story-comments.html view to display the array of comment IDs
* checking http://localhost:8080/#/post?id=1 to make sure that the array is passed to the view
* using an ng-repeat to loop through vm.comments and pass each id into a story-comment component within each list item.
* checking http://localhost:8080/#/post?id=1 again to see that we now have all the comments related to the 1st post on Hacker News.
