Angular is a versatile open-source web application framework developed by Google, used for building efficient and scalable single-page applications. This tutorial will guide you through setting up Angular on a Fedora system.
Before we begin, it’s important to note that Angular requires Node.js and npm (Node Package Manager) to be installed on your system. We’ll also cover these installations.
Step 1: Update Your System
Firstly, ensure your Fedora system is up to date by running the following commands:
sudo dnf update
Step 2: Install Node.js and npm
To install Node.js and npm, use the following command:
sudo dnf install nodejs npm
After the installation, you can verify the installed versions of Node.js and npm by running the following commands:
This will output the installed versions of Node.js and npm respectively.
Step 3: Install Angular CLI
Angular CLI (Command Line Interface) is a tool that helps to initialize, develop, scaffold, and maintain Angular applications directly from a command shell.
Install Angular CLI globally by running the following command:
sudo npm install -g @angular/cli
You can verify the successful installation of Angular CLI by checking the version:
This should display the installed version of Angular CLI.
Step 4: Create a New Angular Project
Once Angular CLI is installed, you can create a new Angular project using the following command:
ng new my-app
Replace ‘my-app’ with your desired application name. This command will create a new directory named ‘my-app’ and install the necessary Angular files to start your project.
Step 5: Serve Your Application
To start your newly created Angular application, navigate to the new project folder and use the ng serve command.
By default, the application will be served at http://localhost:4200/. Open this URL in your web browser, and you should see your Angular application running.
Step 6: Build Your Application for Production
Once you’re ready to prepare your application for deployment, you can use the `ng build` command. This command will create a ‘dist/’ directory in your project folder with the compiled Angular application.
ng build --prod
--prod flag is used to ensure that the application is optimized for a production environment.
That’s it! You’ve now successfully set up Angular on your Fedora system.
By following this tutorial, you have successfully set up Angular on a Fedora system. Starting from updating your system to installing Node.js and npm, to eventually setting up Angular CLI and creating your first Angular project, you have gone through the crucial steps of preparing your Fedora system for Angular development.
Now, you have all the necessary tools and environment ready to dive deep into Angular and build highly interactive single-page applications. The powerful features provided by Angular, coupled with the utility of the Angular CLI, will help you streamline your development process.
n conclusion, setting up Angular on Fedora sets the foundation for an exciting journey into frontend web development. Keep exploring, keep coding, and enjoy the process of creating with Angular!
