Installation steps

1. Install Node.js

Node.js is an open-source server environment that uses JavaScript on the server.

We have to install LTS version as it’s recommended for most users. At this time latest LTS Version: 12.16.1 (includes npm 6.13.4).

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

Latest Node.js LTS version information can be found on the Node.js website.

The installation code depending on the Node.js version can be found on NodeSource which is a Node.js Binary Distributor.

2. Update NPM

Normally, NPM will be installed with the Node.js itself. However, we can update it to the latest version using the below command.

Sometimes it’s optional but I recommend you to do it.

sudo npm install npm@latest -g

3. Install the Angular CLI

sudo npm install -g @angular/cli

Here we’re using sudo to avoid any permission issues that may occur.

4. Create a workspace and initial Angular application

ng new my-app

5. Run the application

cd my-app
ng serve --open

Now we’re good to go.

Happy Coding!
