This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘
sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of Angular on a Debian 10 (Buster) server.
- A server running one of the following operating systems: Debian 10 (Buster).
- It’s recommended that you use a fresh OS install to prevent any potential issues.
- SSH access to the server (or just open Terminal if you’re on a desktop).
non-root sudo useror access to the
root user. We recommend acting as a
non-root sudo user, however, as you can harm your system if you’re not careful when acting as the root.
Install Angular on Debian 10
Step 1. Before we install any software, it’s important to make sure your system is up to date by running the following
apt commands in the terminal:
sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade
Step 2 Installing NodeJS.
You need to install node.js on your system. Use the following commands to configure node.js PPA in your Debian system:
sudo apt-get install software-properties-common curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_12.x | sudo -E bash - sudo apt-get install nodejs
Node Package Manager(NPM) will be installed with the Nodejs itself. But if we can update it to the latest version using the below command:
sudo npm install npm@latest -g
Step 3. Installing Install Angular on Debian.
Once the repositories package list updated in your system, you can start the Angular installation using the below command:
sudo npm install -g @angular/cli
Step 4. Creating a new Angular Application.
Now that we have Angular installed we can create a basic scaffolding for a new application. We will use our newly installed Angular CLI to accomplish this:
ng new idroot-project
First, change into the newly created directory for our application:
cd idroot-project ng serve
You will see a link in the output that tells you how to view your application:
** Angular Live Development Server is listening on localhost:4200, open your browser on http://localhost:4200/ **
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Angular. Thanks for using this tutorial for installing Angular on Debian 10 (Buster). For additional help or useful information, we recommend you check the official Angular website.
