AngularJS – How can I reference the property name within an ng-Repeat

The question:

In addition to rendering the value of the properties in an object, I’d also like to render the property name as a label. Is there a way to do this with ng-repeat? For example:

    <li ng-repeat="option in data">{{propertyName}}: {{option}}</li>

Which might spit out something like this:

    <li>Name: John</li>
    <li>Phone: (123) 456-7890</li>
    <li>Country: England</li>

The Solutions:

Below are the methods you can try. The first solution is probably the best. Try others if the first one doesn’t work. Senior developers aren’t just copying/pasting – they read the methods carefully & apply them wisely to each case.

Method 1

Try this:

    <li ng-repeat="(key,val) in data">{{key}}: {{val}}</li>

Method 2

The problem with documentation is that it says (key, value) with that space … it took me some time to figure out that because of that it doesn’t work
