In this series of articles, I want to share approaches to building an app with Angular.

Starting a new project from scratch is like facing a blank page - you'll never know what it will be like when it's over. For me, this always the route to wonders.

In continuation of the allegory of a blank page - it is very important which tools you will use. Pencils, chalks, coal, or paint - each of these tools require specific knowledge and a certain amount of mastery.

The same is true for the world of IT.

A lot of tools exist to achieve goals. Among these tools, there are different libraries/frameworks to build a user interface: React, Vue, Svelte, Angular, etc.

All of these wonderful solutions require the Node.js and NPM (node package manager) to be at least installed. Moreover, the tooling provided by these packages runs in the Node.js environment.

Does the above mean that it is a prerequisite to know Node.js and how it works?

No. The maintainers of these packages made their usage as simple as possible.

However, to get started a new project, you need to install/setup/configure some set of software.

So, here comes the first article of the series, and it's called Prerequisites.
