Thanks leforgedroid. There is a quick way of installing all the necessary packages/dependencies without typing from the cmd all the modules/libraries you need to run an Angular 2 project. The package.json file usually stores in the project root - this file holds various metadata relevant to the project. This file is used to give information to npm that allows it to identify the project as well as handle the project’s dependencies. Let’s say that you’re going to create a new project, so if you have all the packages you need in the package.json file, you only need to open the cmd, go to the directory where the package.json is located and type the following npm command in a terminal window: npm install (this command will install all the packages you need). Job done! Off you go! Then you only need to create your tsconfig.json, typings.json, index.html and read for example how to create your first angular component from my blog ☺ . Does that sound more simple?
