Installing the Angular CLI

Prerequisites

To install the Angular CLI, you must have the Node.js installed in your environment.
  • Run node -v in a console window to check the Node.js version installed
  • If you haven't installed the latest verion, go to nodejs.org and install the LTS version or the latest supported version by Angular CLI
  • npm package manager is installed with Node.js by default
  • Run npm -v in a console window to check the npm version installed

Installation

Open a console window and enter the following command:
npm install -g @angular/cli
Run ng version in a console window to check the Angular version installed to verify.
This should output the version of the Angular CLI, version of Node.js, operating system and Angular package versions installed in current environment
