  1. directive in module ng

Use this directive to force the angular.element library. This should be used to force either jqLite by leaving ng-jq blank or setting the name of the jquery variable under window (eg. jQuery).

Since angular looks for this directive when it is loaded (doesn't wait for the DOMContentLoaded event), it must be placed on an element that comes before the script which loads angular. Also, only the first instance of ng-jq will be used and all others ignored.
