Package description

What is @angular-devkit/build-angular?

The @angular-devkit/build-angular package is a set of tools and build configurations used to compile and build Angular applications. It is part of the Angular DevKit and is designed to work with the Angular CLI to provide a smooth development experience. It includes features for building, bundling, optimizing, and serving Angular applications.

What are @angular-devkit/build-angular's main functionalities?

Building Angular Applications

Compiles an Angular app into an output directory. The build artifacts will be stored in the dist/ directory by default.

ng build

Development Server

Builds the application and starts a web server. You can view your application in the browser by navigating to the provided localhost address.

ng serve

Code Optimization

Performs ahead-of-time compilation, tree-shaking, minification, and other optimizations to produce a production-ready application.

ng build --prod

Sass/SCSS Compilation

Allows you to use Sass/SCSS stylesheets with your Angular components, which will be compiled to CSS during the build process.

ng build --style=scss

Internationalization (i18n)

Builds the application with i18n support. It can generate multiple versions of your application, one for each locale you support.

ng build --localize
