Using Angular and ng-repeat to add Attributes to an HTML DIV


we are using AngularJS and we are looking to create a series of HTML DIVs using ng-repeat with different HTML Attributes for each DIV.

For example we have the following list representing the DIVs we wish to create

{"id":"year","class":"zone editable","contenteditable":"true","html":""},    
{"id":"title","class":"zone","html":"Credit Assessment"},

and would like to create the following HTML

<div id="year" class="zone editable" contenteditable="true"></div>
<div id="analytics-image" class="zone"></div>
<div id="title" class="zone">Credit Assessment</div>

I have the following Javascript

<div ng-repeat="item in items">{{item.html}} </div>

Where items is the key value pair from the above example.

Any help is most appreciated

The most flexible and clean approach would be to create very simple directive to create necessary attributes:

.directive('attrs', function() {
    return {
        link: function(scope, element, attrs) {
            var attrs = angular.copy(scope.$eval(attrs.attrs));

and use it like this:

<div ng-repeat="item in items" attrs="item">{{item.html}}</div>

You can access on the values like this:

<div ng-repeat="item in items" id="{{}}" class="{{item.class}}">{{item.html}} </div>

But your html wouldn't be rendered correct if you have html tags inside. Use this instead:

<div ng-repeat="item in items" id="{{}}" class="{{item.class}}" ng-bind-html="item.html"> </div>

You can simply put your div to generate inside ng-repeat and set attributes and html

<div ng-repeat="item in items">
    <div id="{{item.Id}}" class="{{item.class}}">{{item.html}}</div>

this would work as long as you item.html is raw text. for html tags refer this Q&A

When things go to complex in AngularJS, try to refactor. For that I would use some sort of directive.
