Most Angular 2 starter projects use a development time web server. This will not work well if you are developing the application using Node and Express. An Angular 2 project works best when it is the document root of a web server. This requires a bit of careful planning.
In today’s post I will explore how to create a Express application that uses Angular 2. We will explore two separate approaches:
- A single project hosting both Node and Angular 2 code.
- Separate projects for Node and Angular 2 code.
We will use generators and official starter projects whenever possible. This will help you follow along this article and experiment quickly.
