AngularJS Nested Directives Example

Nested Directive means a directive under another directive.

In this example, we will display birthdays of famous people born in a specific month.

HTML & AngularJS code

<html>
<head>
<link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.5.5/angular.min.js"></script>
<script>
        
    var app = angular.module("NestedDirectiveExample",[])
    app.directive('month',function(){
        return{
            transclude:true,
            restrict:'E',
            scope: {
                nm: '@'
            },
            template:'<div class="start">'+
                     '<div class="mtitle">{{nm}}</div>'+
                     '<div ng-transclude></div>'+
                     '</div>'
            
        }
    });

    app.directive('entry',function(){
        return{
            restrict:'E',
            scope: {
                dt: '@',
                nm: '@',
                car:'@'
            },            
            template : '<div class="grid">'+
                       '<div class="grid-left">{{dt}}</div>'+
                       '<div class="grid-center">{{nm}}</div>'+
