Then you need to install the windows-build-tools from an elevated PowerShell or CMD.exe. This may take a while (10-15min).

npm install --global --production windows-build-tools

  2. Open up the folder with your editor.
  3. Run npm install to install all required npm packages.

npm run ng:test

And coding style tests

These will run certain linters to keep the project in a clean state.
