I want to access json file in angular.js by using the following code but I am unable to access the code because of the below mentioned shown error.
Help would be appreciated.!!

module :

    getData : function() {
        return $http.get('mapData.json');

              $scope.markers = [];  

Error :
In firefox:

 "Access to restricted URI denied" code: "1012"

return logFn.apply(console, args)

In Chrome :`

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

In fact i think you don’t have a server.

So, you’re getting your application through the file:// protocol.

But file:// protocol can’t do http get methods for security reasons.

To solve your matter i suggest you to put your application on a simple web server (like Apache, or wamp, xamp, lamp etc) or better to use grunt to build your application and run it on a test server through node.js

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
