Installation & Setup

Getting Started

Let's get it started, ha!

Installation

Prerequisites

    Firstly, ensure you have the Dart SDK installed.
Now, install the Angel CLI. The CLI includes several code generators and commands that will help you expedite your development cycle.
1
$ pub global activate angel_cli
Copied!
Now, let's create a sample project, called hello.
Run:
1
$ angel init hello
Copied!
This will create a folder called hello, and copy the Angel boilerplate into it. If you wanted to initialize a project within the current directory, instead of making new one, you could have run:
1
$ angel init
Copied!
Follow the instructions given. There are different types of boilerplates, but all of the server templates will generate very similarly-structured projects.
It's easy to run our server. Just type the following:
1
# Use the `--observe` flag to enable hot reloading in Angel.
2
dart --observe bin/server.dart
Copied!
And there you have it - you've created an Angel application!
