Installing Node & the Angular CLI

Important

In this lecture, we use a tool called the "Angular CLI" to create our Angular project.

With the latest version, this tool will ask you two questions:

1) Do you want to use the Angular Router?

2) Which CSS pre-processor do you want to use?

Simply hit ENTER twice and confirm the default (without entering any value).

The defaults (which we will use therefore) are:

1) No (No router for now, we'll add it later)

2) CSS

At the moment, the Node webpage (nodejs.org) which we're going to use in this lecture looks different.

This will only be the case temporarily (as you can tell if you visit the page) but in the meantime, since you're going to need to download NodeJS from the site, here's the download link: https://nodejs.org/en/download/
