Is there a way to count the number of keys in a json object directly in angular expressions?


I need to show the number of keys in a json object on a web page. So, is there a way to calculate the count directly in the angular expression?

For example,


$scope.json = {"key1": "value1", "key2": "value2", key3: "value3"}

For this ‘json’, there are three keys. I want to get the count of keys directly in an angular expression without calculating it in the controller.


You would have to use a custom filter like this:


{{json | numKeys}}


app.filter('numKeys', function() {
    return function(json) {
        var keys = Object.keys(json)
        return keys.length;
