In order to kickstart the development of your web app with Drift Angular, the very first thing you need to do is to setup an angular development environment.
Following tools are needed to setup an angular dev environment:
Node JS works as a node package manager behind the scene. It is recommended to download and install the latest version of Node JS from its official site http://nodejs.org/
Angular CLI is a tool to initialize, develop, scaffold and maintain Angular applications.
You will need to install the latest version of Angular CLI on your machine. To install the Angular CLI, Open your favorite console application (Terminal, Command Prompt etc.), run the following command and wait for it to finish:
$ npm install -g @angular/cli
You will need Gulp to compile the Sass. To install the Gulp latest version run the following command and wait for it to finish:
$ npm install -g gulp-cli
After having all these tools installed on your machine, your machine is now ready to start with the angular development with Drift Angular.
