ng run <target>


Architect is the tool that the CLI uses to perform complex tasks such as compilation, according to provided configurations. The CLI commands run Architect targets such as build, serve, test, and lint. Each named target has a default configuration, specified by an options object, and an optional set of named alternate configurations in the configurations object.

For example, the serve target for a newly generated app has a predefined alternate configuration named production.

You can define new targets and their configuration options in the architect section of the angular.json file which you can run them from the command line using the ng run command.
