The most straightforward way to set up an Angular project is to use the official Angular CLI tool. The CLI tool interactively generates an Angular app that works out of the box.
If you don't have the Angular CLI installed globally, use the following command to install it:
npm i -g @angular/cli
Installing Angular CLI global to the system user with npm.

ng new my-new-app

my-new-app directory and run the following command to serve your app in the browser:
ng serve --open
Running your Angular app locally
Your browser will automatically be launched with the served Angular app at http://localhost:4200/

If you have not yet installed Now, you can do so by installing Now CLI.
With Now installed, you can deploy your Angular project with just a single command.

When your app is deployed, you will receive a deployment URL similar to the one shown at the beginning of this guide: https://tour-of-heroes-he3j9k80n.now.sh/
