Angular one of the most popular web/mobile application development framework is releasing its version updates by fixing bugs and adding new features very fast.
Reusable components are the main attractions of Angular. We can use the same components in several places were the same UI structure is needed. This reduces the amount of coding time and increases productivity. That is why some of the giant companies are developing their products with Angular.
Angular combines integrated best practices to solve development challenges. Also, it empowers developers to build applications that live on the web, mobile, or the desktop. Some of the other features include
- declarative templates
- dependency injection
- end to end tooling
The current stable version of Angular is 8.2.0 and we are going to explain the steps of installation of it on Debian 10 Buster operating system.
1. Install Nodejs
In this tutorial, we are going to install Angular 8 using the Node Package Manager(NPM). So first, we need to install Nodejs on our system.NPM will be installed with Nodejs itself.
So, the latest version of Node.js can be installed on our system using the commands below. Currently, 12.4.0 is the latest version of Nodejs.
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_12.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install -y nodejs
2. Update NPM(Optional)
Node Package Manager(NPM) will be installed with the Nodejs itself. But if we can update it to the latest version using the below command.
sudo npm install npm@latest -g
3. Install Angular CLI
Angular CLI helps us to create projects, generate application and library code, and perform a variety of ongoing development tasks such as testing, bundling, and deployment.
It can simply be installed using NPM. So first, open Terminal and install the Angular CLI with the below command.
npm install -g @angular/cli
4. Creating a New Angular Application
We successfully installed Angular CLI on our system and now we can set up a workspace for Angular projects in our system and create a new app. This can be done with the below command.
ng new awesome-project
5. Running Our App
Now, the app we created can be run using ng serve.
cd awesome-project ng serve --open
This launches the server, watches our files, and rebuilds the app as we make changes to those files.
The –open (or just -o) option automatically opens our browser to the below address.
Have a nice code !
