Angular CLI

NOTE: this documentation is for Angular CLI 6. For Angular CLI 1.x go here instead.


The Angular CLI is a tool to initialize, develop, scaffold and maintain Angular applications

Getting Started

To install the Angular CLI:

npm install -g @angular/cli

Generating and serving an Angular project via a development server Create and run a new project:

ng new my-project
cd my-project
ng serve

Navigate to http://localhost:4200/. The app will automatically reload if you change any of the source files.


All builds make use of bundling, and using the --prod flag in ng build --prod or ng serve --prod will also make use of uglifying and tree-shaking functionality.

Running unit tests

ng test

Tests will execute after a build is executed via Karma, and it will automatically watch your files for changes. You can run tests a single time via --watch=false or --single-run.

Running end-to-end tests

ng e2e

Before running the tests make sure you are serving the app via ng serve. End-to-end tests are run via Protractor.

Additional Commands
