Whether you came here directly from Part 1, or completed the entire online store application through the In-app navigation, Manage data, and Forms for user input sections, you have an application that you can deploy by following the instructions in this section.
StackBlitz projects are public by default, allowing you to share your Angular app via the project URL. Keep in mind that this is a great way to share ideas and prototypes, but it is not intended for production hosting.
To build your application locally or for production, download the source code from your StackBlitz project by clicking the
Download Project icon in the left menu across from
Project to download your files.
Once you have the source code downloaded and unzipped, install
Node.js and serve your app with the Angular CLI.
From the terminal, install the Angular CLI globally with:
npm install -g @angular/cli
This installs the command
ng on your system, which is the command you use to create new workspaces, new projects, serve your application during development, or produce builds to share or distribute.
Create a new Angular CLI workspace using the
ng new command:
ng new my-project-name
In your new CLI generated app, replace the
/src folder with the one from your
StackBlitz download, and then perform a build.
ng build --prod
This will produce the files that you need to deploy.
If the above
ng buildcommand throws an error about missing packages, append the missing dependencies in your local project's
package.jsonfile to match the one in the downloaded StackBlitz project.
The files in the
dist/my-project-name folder are static. This means you can host them on any web server capable of serving files (such as
Node.js, Java, .NET), or any backend (such as Firebase, Google Cloud, or App Engine).
One of the easiest ways to get your site live is to host it using Firebase.
@angular/fireschematics that will handle your deployment using
ng add @angular/fire.
npm install -g firebase-tools.
Follow the prompts to select the
Firebase project you are creating for hosting.
Hostingoption on the first prompt.
dist/my-project-nameas the public directory.
To host an Angular app on another web host, upload or send the files to the host. Because you are building a single page application, you'll also need to make sure you redirect any invalid URLs to your
index.html file. Read more about development and distribution of your application in the Building & Serving and Deployment guides.
Angular offers many more capabilities, and you now have a foundation that empowers you to build an application and explore those other capabilities:
