In this tutorial, we’ll install the latest Angular CLI version and generate a new Angular 12 project with routing.

$ npm install -g @angular/cli

In the next step, we’ll proceed to create a new example project from the command-line.
Step 2 — Creating a New Angular 12 Project

$ cd angular-example-with-routing $ ng serve
A live-reload server will be running from the
