Set up Angular CLI 13

Step 1 — Setting up Angular CLI 13

In this step, we'll install the latest Angular CLI 13 version (at the time of writing this tutorial).

Note: These instructions are also valid for Angular 8/9.

Angular CLI is the official tool for initializing and working with Angular projects. To install it, open a new command-line interface and run the following command:

$ npm install -g @angular/cli

At the time of writing this tutorial, angular/cli v13 will be installed on your system.

If you run the ng version command, you should get a similar output:

Angular CLI: 13.0.0
Node: 14.17.0
Package Manager: npm 6.14.13
OS: linux x64


Package Version
@angular-devkit/architect 0.1300.0 (cli-only)
@angular-devkit/core 13.0.0 (cli-only)
@angular-devkit/schematics 13.0.0 (cli-only)
@schematics/angular 13.0.0 (cli-only)

In the next step, we'll learn how to intialize a new example project from the command-line.
