So far (by 4/2015) UI Bootstrap provides an extremely simply tab component (ui.bootstrap.tabs).
You need to include the content of tab within the "tab" tags.
Or do it yourself with ui-view. In order to get a tab work with your
templates and controllers for your tab content area, you need to wire a lot
(routing and insert controllers).
There is another approach using directive (click to see detail) but you still
need to do a lot of coding "outside" the tab tags.
