Install yo, gulp-cli, and generator-angular-fullstack:

npm install -g yo gulp-cli generator-angular-fullstack

Please note: If you run into trouble compiling native add-ons during the installation, follow node-gyp's short guide on required compilation tools.

Then, to run your app (make sure the MongoDB daemon is running if you selected Mongo), run the following to start your server:

npm run start:server

and the following to start the Webpack dev server for the front-end:

npm run start:client

The Webpack server will tell you which port to access the app at (usually http://localhost:8080/).

Run yo angular-fullstack

yo angular-fullstack
