Answer

A component can be created by running the following command from the command line:

ng generate component name-of-your-component

By executing the above commnd you are telling Angular CLI to create a component name-of-your-component and to include it in the application module app (as the parameter --module wasn't provided, the default value 'app' will be used).

  • The component will be created in its own folder src/app/name-of-your-component
  • The module file src/app/app.module.ts will be modified as the component will be imported into it
