How do you use $sce.trustAsHtml(string) to replicate ng-bind-html-unsafe in Angular 1.2+

Questions:

ng-bind-html-unsafe was removed in Angular 1.2

I’m trying to implement something where I need to use ng-bind-html-unsafe. In the docs and on the github commit they say:

ng-bind-html provides ng-html-bind-unsafe like behavior (innerHTML’s the result without
sanitization) when bound to the result of $sce.trustAsHtml(string).

How do you do this?

Answers:

That should be:

<div ng-bind-html="trustedHtml"></div>

plus in your controller:

$scope.html = '<ul><li>render me please</li></ul>';
$scope.trustedHtml = $sce.trustAsHtml($scope.html);

instead of old syntax, where you could reference $scope.html variable directly:

<div ng-bind-html-unsafe="html"></div>

As several commenters pointed out, $sce has to be injected in the controller, otherwise you will get $sce undefined error.

 var myApp = angular.module('myApp',[]);

 myApp.controller('MyController', ['$sce', function($sce) {
    // ... [your code]
 }]);

Filter

app.filter('unsafe', function($sce) { return $sce.trustAsHtml; });

Usage

<ANY ng-bind-html="value | unsafe"></ANY>

Personally I sanitize all my data with some PHP libraries before going into the database so there’s no need for another XSS filter for me.

From AngularJS 1.0.8

directives.directive('ngBindHtmlUnsafe', [function() {
    return function(scope, element, attr) {
        element.addClass('ng-binding').data('$binding', attr.ngBindHtmlUnsafe);
        scope.$watch(attr.ngBindHtmlUnsafe, function ngBindHtmlUnsafeWatchAction(value) {
            element.html(value || '');
        });
    }
}]);

To use:

<div ng-bind-html-unsafe="group.description"></div>

To disable $sce:

app.config(['$sceProvider', function($sceProvider) {
    $sceProvider.enabled(false);
}]);

var line = "<label onclick="alert(1)">aaa</label>";

1. use filter

app.filter('unsafe', function($sce) { return $sce.trustAsHtml; });

using (html):

<span ng-bind-html="line | unsafe"></span>
==>click `aaa` show alert box

2. use ngSanitize : safer

include angular-sanitize.js

<script src="bower_components/angular-sanitize/angular-sanitize.js"></script>

add ngSanitize in root angular app

var app = angular.module("app", ["ngSanitize"]);

using (html):

<span ng-bind-html="line"></span>
==>click `aaa` nothing happen

If you want the old directive back, you can add this to your app:

Directive:

directives.directive('ngBindHtmlUnsafe', ['$sce', function($sce){
    return {
        scope: {
            ngBindHtmlUnsafe: '=',
        },
        template: "<div ng-bind-html='trustedHtml'></div>",
        link: function($scope, iElm, iAttrs, controller) {
            $scope.updateView = function() {
                $scope.trustedHtml = $sce.trustAsHtml($scope.ngBindHtmlUnsafe);
            }

            $scope.$watch('ngBindHtmlUnsafe', function(newVal, oldVal) {
                $scope.updateView(newVal);
            });
        }
    };
}]);

Usage

<div ng-bind-html-unsafe="group.description"></div>

Simply creating a filter will do the trick. (Answered for Angular 1.6)

.filter('trustHtml', [
        '$sce',
        function($sce) {
            return function(value) {
                return $sce.trustAs('html', value);
            }
        }
    ]);

And use this as follow in the html.

<h2 ng-bind-html="someScopeValue | trustHtml"></h2>

For Rails (at least in my case) if you are using the angularjs-rails gem, please remember to add the sanitize module

//= require angular
//= require angular-sanitize

And then load it up in your app…

var myDummyApp = angular.module('myDummyApp', ['ngSanitize']);

Then you can do the following:

On the template:

%span{"ng-bind-html"=>"phone_with_break(x)"}

And eventually:

$scope.phone_with_break = function (x) {
  if (x.phone != "") {
   return x.phone + "<br>";
  }
  return '';
}
