How to Angular Js- Create Angular Js Project

Angular Js is a complete JavaScript-based web application framework. It is used in Single Page Application (SPA) projects. SPAs are Web apps that load a single HTML page and dynamically update that page as the user interacts with the application. AngularJS is open source, completely free.

In this tutorial, we are going to learn to create an Angular js project and run it on the web browser. I recommend using WebStorm IDE and I am going to show you how to set up the developer tools for angularJS. Download the Webstorm IDE from Install the Webstorm IDE with the default configuration.

Features of Angular JS

  • Angular JS supports two Way Data-Binding, it synchronizes between the model and the view.
  • In AngularJS, the templates are just plain-old-HTML.
  • AngularJS incorporates the basic principles behind the original MVC software design pattern into how it builds client-side web applications.
  • AngularJS has a built-in dependency injection subsystem that helps the developer by making the application easier to develop, understand, and test.
  • Directives are my personal favorite feature of AngularJS.


Creating First Angular Js Project in WebStorm.

Press the Create button. You will see the following sample angularJS project and directory structure created if you select AngularJS from the list.


Create Angular Js project
Open up the terminal window from the left bottom corner of the Webstorm and run npm start to run our application. This command downloads all the dependencies for an AngularJS project.

     npm start


Once NPM loads all the dependency we can find the index.html file in app directory which is the home page for our application. You can run the above application simply by the opening browser and enter the URL localhost:8000. It will open the browser loaded with our Angular JS Application.
