Let's get it started, ha!
- Firstly, ensure you have the Dart SDK installed.
Now, install the Angel CLI. The CLI includes several code generators and commands that will help you expedite your development cycle.
$ pub global activate angel_cli
Now, let's create a sample project, called
$ angel init hello
This will create a folder called
hello, and copy the Angel boilerplate into it. If you wanted to initialize a project within the current directory, instead of making new one, you could have run:
$ angel init
You'll notice that the following folder structure is there for you:
.idea/ - IntelliJ metadata. .vscode/ - VSCode metadata. bin/ - Contains a script to run the application. config/ - Static configuration files. lib/ src/ config/ - Attach miscellaneous plugins to your application. plugins/ - Plugins you have written yourself. models/ - In-code representations of the data your application manages. routes/ - Routing config controllers/ - Contains your controllers. services/ - Contains RESTful services. validators/ - Contains validators that can validate input on the client and server sides. test/ - Test files for services and endpoints. tool/ - Helper files for build/task tools, such as Grinder. views/ - Mustache views. web/ - Client-side code.
It's easy to run our server. Just type the following:
# Use the `--observe` flag to enable hot reloading in Angel. dart --observe bin/server.dart
And there you have it - you've created an Angel application!
