  • Step 3: Using npm to install angular cli 
    Open your VS Code IDE and choose a folder for the path of the project and open it on VS Code by selecting File->Open Folder
    Run the following command to install angular CLI: 
npm install -g @angular/cli

  • It will load the angular cli from where we will use ng command to do further actions.

To Create Angular app follow the steps after the Angular cli installation: 

  • Step 1: Making and Running FirstApp 
    Now with the help of CLI we are ready to start with building up of new default project. To do so write the following command on the terminal. 
ng new <project-name>
  • Eg: ng new FirstApp

  • This will create all the setup and files along with a default angular page. Note the diagram, for each project it asks whether to enable routing or not and the styling that we want to choose (CSS, SCSS, Stylus). Choose yes for routing if the application contains multiple linked components. When everything is complete we will see that a directory with name FirstApp will appear at the left directory column.

  • Step 2: Now to run it on the local server. To do so first navigate to the project folder using cd command and the write the following command on the terminal. 
cd FirstApp
  • -o flag is used for automatic opening of the browser: 
  • o stands for open.
ng serve -o
