Continuing from the last post, a module in AngularJS is a place where you can collect and organize components like controllers, services, directives, and filters. We'll talk about the "when & why" of creating a module in a later post. This post will focus on the API to create a module, and get a reference to an existing module. Stimulating topic, eh? The proper way to create a module is to use the angular.module method passing at least the module name, and an array naming all the dependencies of the module (or an empty array if there are no dependencies).
