Hii @kartik,

This code:

app.all('*', function (req, res) {
  res.sendFile(__dirname+'/index.html') /* <= Where my ng-view is located */
})

tells Express that no matter what the browser requests, your server should return index.html. So when the browser requests JavaScript files like jquery-x.y.z.main.js or angular.min.js, your server is returning the contents of index.html, which start with <!DOCTYPE html>, which causes the JavaScript error.

Hope it helps!!
