How to install Angular 8 locally


When you have updated Angular CLI using npm install -g @angular/cli[@version], everytime you create Angular project using the ng new command, the project is generated with Angular version corresponding to that Angular CLI version. Angular 8 is latest Angular version that we may want to use in limited number of projects at the time it has just been released. In this tutorial, we’re gonna show you 2 ways to install new Angular 8 project locally in specific folder.

We have 2 ways to setup new Angular project with specific Version:
– using npx => don’t need to install Angular CLI locally
– using local Angular CLI => need to generate a local folder for node_modules

Install Angular 8 locally using npx

Install npx

Run command: npm i -g npx

Setup new Angular project

Now, if we want to create Angular 8 project in a specific folder, just run the command on that folder:

npx -p @angular/cli@8.0.0-beta.2 ng new Angular8SpringBoot

You can change 8.0.0-beta.2 to your appropriate Angular CLI version. Run command ng --version on project folder, the result would be like:
