Danube river cruise and the Melk Abbey

We went from Vienna to Dürnstein, after about an hour or more of bus ride. We did some sightseeing of this town with the fabled blue church over the hill and 16th century residences. It was typically a town for tourists with lots of shops, restaurants, wine shops etc. on both sides of narrow, cobbled streets. We then boarded the boat at Dürnstein pier at the foot of the hill around 10:00 AM. The ride was for about 3 hours or more and the boat had an on-board restaurant. At a distance, you can see the castle now in ruins that had held Richard the Lionheart captive.

Later we visited the Benedictine Melk Abbey (Lower Austria) adjacent to the Wachau Valley. It has the tomb of the past rulers and a library with a huge manuscripts collection. We also visited the blue gallery and enjoyed the projected slide show on the walls of the museum. on the way to the the Melk Abbey we saw from the boat the ruins of a castle where the Richard of Lion heart was imprisoned.

Wachau valley is well known for its vineyards and wineries. We visited one of them and were served wine ex-gratis...

Watch the slide show of the visit on YouTube here:

Using AngularJS on the localhost

AngularJS directives are extensions of HTML markups. They are one of several components of AngularJS. Directives can be attributes, element names, CSS class etc.

AngularJS script reference is important and the script can be found here:

https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.2.25/angular.min.js"
The above script reference needs to be added to your hTML page.

You can find the whole list of directives here:
https://docs.angularjs.org/api

Here is the usage of some directives placed in a html page that can be displayed on your localhost (in this case the IIS in Windows 10). Place this code with a suitable name in the inetpub / wwwroot directory.

======================


  Some directives in AngularJS

ng-app
Sorry, blogger still does not support the "pre" tag!
==============
When viewed on the browser (in this case Microsoft Edge), the HTML page renders as shown.


Do the following on this interactive page:
  • Type anything it gets copied next to Hello
  • Enter the increment region with your mouse, the count (presently 1) gets incremented
  • Click the link and you get to the page
Directives used in the page above and their description:
ng-app: initializes an AngularJS application
ng-model: binds the value of HTML controls (input, select, textarea) to application data
ng-init: initializes application data
ng-mouseenter: an AngularJS mouse event as a cursor moves over an dom element
ng-href: supported by the "a" tag and should be used when AngularJS code as in the example
