Getting Started with Angular

Introduction

Angular 2 is the great new framework that will provide us a great deal of flexibility and power when building our apps.

Goals

  • Build an Angular 2 app
  • Create an Angular 2 starter kit
  • Understand what goes into setting up Angular 2

Skip the Setup

You can totally skip the setup and grab only the files you need. Jump to the Taking a Step Back lesson to get straight to the Angular 2 specific parts.

Super Skip the Setup

Check out the Angular CLI.

You can get an Angular app up and running like this:

npm install -g angular-cli

ng new my-new-app

cd my-new-app

ng serve

View your app at http://localhost:4200.

If you use the CLI approach, then your entire app will live withing the /src folder that the CLI generates.
