  • The Angular CLI makes building out our component so easy, but more importantly it will layout the basics for our application with a quick and easy command!

  • All we need to do to serve our application is to run the command – – The Angular CLI will now bundle up the default code and serve it on http://localhost:4200/ – – We will pick up with our first step now that we have everything up and running by…
