Require is not defined in angular

I am using angularjs where I created a js file (loginCtrl.js) and I included a controller. I have defined my connection and db schema in another file (server.js) and I want to include this file in my js.

My loginCtrl.js looks like this:

test.controller('loginCtrl', function($scope, loginService){

   $scope.login = function(user)
       console.log('inside function 1');
       var user = require('./server.js')
      console.log('inside function');



and my server.js files look like this:

var express = require('express');
var mongoose = require('mongoose');


var userSchema = {
    username: String,
    lastname: String,
    email: String,
    password: String

var User = mongoose.model('User', userSchema, 'user');


When I run the code, it gives an error like:

ReferenceError: require is not defined


It prints the above console.log.

is a NodeJS function, your angular controller will be executed in a browser that has no inline function. If you want to replicate this behavior on the client side you should have a look at RequireJS
