How to create Angular 7 Project using Angular CLI


In this article we will learn about How to create Angular 7 Project using Angular CLI.

Angular CLI

Angular CLI is a command line interface, thus ‘CLI’, which includes the functionality that Webpack provides.  It uses Webpack to include all the packaging, importing, BrowserLink etc., but you do not need to know how Webpack works or how it needs to be configured to run in different environments or on different types of machines.  All the Webpack configuration is done completely by CLI and leaves it out of the hands of a developer, unless they choose to adjust the settings themselves.

How to create Angular-7 Project
