How to install Angular on CentOS 8

How To Install Angular On CentOS 8

On this article we will discuss how to install the latest Angular on Linux CentOS 8 opearting system and setting up the local environment and workspace.


Angular is a TypeScript-based open-source web application framework led by the Angular Team at Google and by a community of individuals and corporations. Angular is a complete rewrite from the same team that built AngularJS. On this tutorial we will install the latest Angular version version 11.1.4 which was released on 3 February 2021.

The Angular installation will be consist of serveral steps, namely :

  1. Prerequisite
  2. Install Angular CLI on CentOS 8
  3. Create Workspace and Run Initial Application

1. Prerequisite

Angular requires Node.js and npm to run properly on the system. Angular requires current, active LTS, or maintenance LTS version of Node.js. If our CentOS 8 system has not Node.js installed yet, we have to install it first. For Node.js installation on CentOS 8, we could find it on How To Install Node.js version 14 On CentOS 8 article. Angular, the Angular CLI, and Angular applications depend on npm packages for many features and functions. To download and install npm packages, we need an npm package manager.

On this step we will verify the Node.js and npm version which are installed on the system, by submitting command line : node --version and npm --version.

[ramans@otodiginet ~]$ node --version
 [ramans@otodiginet ~]$ npm --version
Node.js version and npm versin

2. Install the Angular CLI

After all prerequisites are fulfilled, the we do the Angular CLI installatin. We use the Angular CLI to create projects, generate application and library code, and perform a variety of ongoing development tasks such as testing, bundling, and deployment. To install the latest Angular CLI, we submit the command line : sudo npm install -g @angular/cli. If we want to install any other Angular version just hit the command : sudo npm install -g @angular/cli@10 for Angular version 10, sudo npm install -g @angular/cli@9 for Angular version 9.

[ramans@otodiginet ~]$ sudo npm install -g @angular/cli

After installation was completed done, then we will verify it by querying its version, by submitting command line : ng --version.

[ramans@otodiginet ~]$ ng --version
Angular CLI version 11.1.4
Angular CLI version 11.1.4

3. Create Workspace and Running the Initial Application

On this section, we will create a workspace and initial starter app. For this purpose we will provide a name called angularotodigi.

  1. Submit the command line : ng new angularotodigi
  2. The ng new command will prompt the information about features to include in the initial app. Accept the defaults by pressing the Enter or Return key.
[ramans@otodiginet ~]$ ng new angularotodigi
 ? Do you want to enforce stricter type checking and stricter bundle budgets in the workspace?

3. Run the application. After a workspace is created, then we will run the initial application. This task is done by submitting command line : ng serve --open inside a new workspace directory (/home/ramans/angulaotodigi).

[root@otodiginet ramans]# cd angularotodigi
[root@otodiginet angularotodigi]# ng serve --open
