Note: This tutorial is not for AngularJs but for Angular 2+. Here instead of saying Angular 2+ everytime, we will be refering Angular as Angular 2+.
If you haven't yet tried out Angular, wants to know how to install it and build your first app with it then you are in the right place.Here, We will be discussing the process of installing it in your workspace. Lets get started.
Go ahead and install nodejs on your desired machine. Click on the installer based on your platform and it will be downloaded.
After installing node, go ahead and open cmd then type
npm -v(-v for version). You'll get something like this(you'll get version number based on your installation).
If not, try installing node again and try again the
npm -v command.
Now go ahead and type
npm install -g @angular/cli.
It will install angular cli on your machine globally(-g for global installation).
At this stage, you are all setup for Angular app.
Now go type
ng new getting-started-with-angular, here
getting-started-with-angular is your projects name.
It will ask you for angular routing, type
y and then hit enter
It will again ask you to choose stylesheet format, select one and hit enter.
Now it will create intial files for your Angular apps.
After it finishes just type
cd getting-started-with-angular then hit enter.
ng serve -o.
ng serve runs the server and serves your projects file to the localhost:4200, by default.
-o is used to open browser after it finishes compiling files.
ng serve -o should automatically open your browser and you can see this.
Congratulations on setting up Angular and serving your first app Angular app.
