Definition and Usage

The ng-csp directive is used to change the security policy of AngularJS.

With the ng-csp directive set, AngularJS will not run any eval functions, and it will not inject any inline styles.

Setting the value of the ng-csp directive to no-unsafe-eval, will stop AngularJS from running any eval functions, but allow injecting inline styles.

Setting the value of the ng-csp directive to no-inline-style, will stop AngularJS from injecting any inline styles, but allow eval functions.

Using the ng-csp directive is necessary when developing apps for Google Chrome Extensions or Windows Apps.

Note: The ng-csp directive does not affect JavaScript, but it changes the way AngularJS works, meaning: you can still write eval functions, and they will be executed as you expect, but AngularJS will not run its own eval functions. It uses a compatibility mode which can slow down the evaluation time up to 30%.


<element ng-csp="no-unsafe-eval | no-inline-style"></element>
