Getting Started With Angular 2 - Part Two

The first thing we have to do is to download and install node.js from the link given below.


Node comes with the tool called npm (Node Package Manager). This tool is basically required to install all dependencies and so on.

After downloading node. js from the link given above, the next thing which we need is an IDE or Text editor.

In our tutorials, we shall use Visual Studio Code, which is very helpful to build Angular Applications.

Download from the link given below.


Now, I have good news and  bad news. The bad news is Angular2 Application requires a lot of files and configuration. It’s not like an HTML file, where we save a file with .html extension and its good to go. 

The good news is that I have all the required files in the link given below from where you can download and start.!ArxBJ3qPXoQqmmcdt5h1ydUaqjJ_

Once you download the template folder, open the Command Prompt (Run as an administrator) and run the command given below.

>> npm install

This will install all the dependencies and the Directives structure. This execution will be a bit time consuming.

If we are done with no npm errors, then we are good to start with our Hello World Application.

In our next article, we shall see an overview on the Application files.
