Angularjs – angular, django and csrf

angularjscsrfdjangodjango-rest-framework

from http://docs.angularjs.org/api/ng.$http , it says we should set default headers to include the token, so i am following it.

my code goes something like this

var myapp = angular.module('myapp', ['ngCookies', 'ui.bootstrap']).
    config(['$routeProvider', function($routeProvider, $httpProvider, $cookies){
        $routeProvider.
            when('/', {
                templateUrl: '/partials/home.html',
                controller: HomeCtrl
            }).
            when('/game/:gameId/shortlist/create',{
                templateUrl: '/partials/create-shortlist.html',
                controller: CreateShortlistCtrl
            }).
            otherwise({redirectTo: '/'});
    }]);

myapp.run(function($rootScope, $http, $cookies, $httpProvider){
    $http.get('/api/get-current-user').success(function(data){
        $rootScope.current_user = data;
        $rootScope.current_team = $rootScope.current_user.team;
    });
    $http.get('/api/get-current-season').success(function(data){
        $rootScope.current_season = data;
    });
    $rootScope.csrf_token = $cookies.csrftoken;
    console.log($httpProvider.defaults.headers.common);
    //$httpProvider.defaults.headers.post['X-CSRFToken'] = $cookies.csrftoken;
});

as you can see, i have applied multiple approaches but am unable to set header with csrf token. the two errors i have encountered are

Uncaught Error: Unknown provider: $httpProviderProvider <-
$httpProvider

what am i doing wrong?

Best Solution

If you use AngularJS 1.1.3 or newer you can use xsrfHeaderName and xsrfCookieName:

var myapp = angular.module('myapp', ['ngCookies', 'ui.bootstrap']).
  config(['$routeProvider', function($routeProvider, $httpProvider, $cookies){
    $httpProvider.defaults.xsrfHeaderName = 'X-CSRFToken';
    $httpProvider.defaults.xsrfCookieName = 'csrftoken';
    ...

See $location in 1.1.3 the documentation.
