Getting Started with Angular 2.0 & JavaScript – In 3 Quick Steps

Angular with JavaScript


As part of the In 3 Quick Steps series, in this article we will talk about how to get started with JavaScript application development for Angular 2.

If you are looking for TypeScript based development, you shall read Getting Started with Angular 2.0 & TypeScript – In 3 Quick Steps!

While the Angular team has already put together an awesome 5 min Quickstart guide, I found that it would be great if the steps can be further reduced so that, rather than 5 minutes, it takes a minute to get you up and running with your first Angular 2.0 application. And, that’s exactly what we will be doing here – in 3 quick steps!

This article uses Angular’s Quickstart guide and the files/code mentioned there. Hence, all the copyright rules & licensing that applies to the Quickstart guide file/code, it applies to the file/code mentioned in this article, as well.

Step 1: Install Dependencies

Step 2: Generate the starter application

  • Clone the Quickstart repository from GitHub by running the following command
git clone
  • Install required project dependencies
npm install

Step 3: Test drive the generated application

From the angular2js-quickstart project folder, run the following command to launch the application in your default browser:

npm start

This will run the application and you shall see the following output:

First Angular 2 App

That’s All! We are ready for our Angular 2 development using JavaScript!

Bon Voyage!
