All in all,
ngTeleport has similar functionality to
ngTeleport allows you to uproot a piece of the DOM and place it elsewhere. However,
ngTeleport is entirely Angular.js aware and therefore sets up the scope and interpolation for you.
ngTeleport to move elements around the DOM for responsiveness is no longer recommended – use Flexbox instead. For cases where you require the same functionality for non-supported browsers explain to your CTO that complicating the codebase's architecture to support a handful of antiquated browsers is absurd.
First of all you need to define the
ng-teleport attribute with a unique identifier for the scope on any DOM element you wish to teleport – this allows
ngTeleport to take a note of the precompiled HTML. Once you've defined the
ng-teleport you're free to move it around wherever you wish. Simply add
teleport to your directive, and invoke it with the
source (DOM node with the
target, and any additional options.
<section ng-teleport="myElement"> </section>
With the above code
section is now all ready to be teleported anywhere in the DOM where there is a valid Angular scope.
ngTeleport it's crucial that you don't over-complicate your code. Remember that there might always be a better solution for doing what you want to do.
One prominent use case that
ngTeleport is in a responsive design – upon changing the browser window, you may want to shuffle the DOM elements around based on media queries, which is precisely what
ngTeleport allows you to do in an Angular environment.
