today I want to make note about setting up Angular 2 application initial configuration. So, if you need to set up everything for Angular 2 application manually, then following steps will be needed ( according to www.angular.io ):
- Create application folder
- Create tsconfig.json file
- create package.json file
- create typings.json file
- install libraries and typings
- create host web page ( as usually index.html )
- create maint.s file
When I first time read those requirements, I've become intimidated. And as every energy saving person I wanted to know, is it possible to get some tool, that set up Angular 2 app instead of me. And the simplest way will be the following: download result of those steps from www.angular.io Quick start section ( don't tell anybody that you got it from there ) .
Another alternative is tools like AngularCli. AngularCli is command line tool that allows to generate files that needed for Angular2 application.
