Angular error & ldquo; is not a function & rdquo; when including ng-template in the entry field of the registration-why?


I am using nodejs for the backend and angular for the fronend (and using materialize for css) and trying to write code for the signup. When I remove ng-model I get no errors, however, when I include ng-model in the input, the moment I start typing in the password/email field, I get a weird angular error : TypeError: is not a function or TypeError: n.trigger is not a function . I have no idea what -n- is and dont have n function anywhere. Have been searching the internet etc. but cant figure out whats wrong.Also, signup does not work (it did before). Anyone has an idea? Thank you!


<div class="signup-wrapper">
   <form id="signup-form" name="signupForm" ng-submit="signupForm.$valid && sendSignup(signup)">
        <alert type="danger" ng-show="error"> {{ error }} </alert>
      <div class="form-group">
         <label for="email" >Email address</label>
         <input style="width:300px;" type="text" ng-model="" class="form-control" id="email" placeholder="Enter email">
      <div class="form-group">
         <label for="signup-password">Password</label>
         <input style="width:300px;" type="password" ng-model="signup.password" class="form-control" id="signup-password" placeholder="Password">
         <input type="password" ng-model="signup.confirm" placeholder="Confirm Password">

You simply need to load your jQuery even before you load Angular.

This ensures that Angular can use the full jQuery library instead of jQlite.
