Angular CLI (Command-Line Interface) provides the simplest way to setup an Angular app into local computer.
1. Install Angular CLI.
Use npm command. Run this in either bash or command prompt.
npm install -g @angular/cli
2. Verify if Angular CLI is installed successfully by following command.
3. Create a new project e.g.
PROJECT_NAME. This may take a while.
ng new PROJECT_NAME
-o will automatically open
http://localhost:4200/ in default browser.
The app will automatically refresh if you change any of the source files.
cd PROJECT_NAME ng serve -o
5. To change the default host and port number, use the following command.
ng serve --host 0.0.0.0 --port 4201
You are all set!
