Using Angular CLI

Using Flex-Layout with the the Angular CLI is easy.

Install the CLI

# Global
npm uninstall -g @angular/cli
npm install -g @angular/cli

Create a new project

 ng new my-project

Or, use with existing project

rm -rf node_modules/
npm install

The new command creates a project with a build system for your Angular app.

Install Flex-Layout

npm install @angular/flex-layout @angular/cdk --save

This installs the most recent npm release of Flex-Layout.

npm install angular/flex-layout-builds angular/cdk-builds --save

This installs a nightly build which incorporates the latest updates not yet published to NPM

Import the Angular Flex-Layout NgModule

src/app/app.module.ts

import {NgModule} from '@angular/core';
import {FlexLayoutModule} from '@angular/flex-layout';
// other imports 
@NgModule({
  imports: [FlexLayoutModule],
  ...
})
export class PizzaPartyAppModule {}

Configuring SystemJS

If your project is using SystemJS for module loading, you will need to add @angular/flex-layout to the SystemJS configuration:

System.config({
  // existing configuration options
  map: {
    ...,
    '@angular/flex-layout': 'npm:@angular/flex-layout-builds/bundles/flex-layout.umd.js'
    '@angular/cdk': 'npm:@angular/cdk-builds/bundles/cdk.umd.js'
  }
});

Sample Angular Flex-Layout projects
