Dev and Build the UI

Setup the development environment

You need to set up your development environment before you can do anything.

Install Node.js® and npm if they are not already on your machine.

Then install the Angular CLI globally. You can install angular cli using npm:

npm install -g @angular/[email protected]

Then install Bower globally. You can install Bower using npm:

npm install -g bower

Great, your base setup is done!

Setup Web app

If you are doing this setup, we can assume you have already cloned the repository.

Go to webapp folder from your terminal/console and run the following commands to install node and bower modules

npm install
bower install

You are now ready to start the application.
