Angular 2 – Hello World

Firends, After introduction of Angular 2. Now we are going to write our first program in Angular 2.

=> Angular Application = AngApp


AngApp contains modules.

Module contains components.

Component conatins 3 parts.

  1. Template
  2. Class or Code
  3. Metadata

We need to install first NPM. You can download it from following URL ‘’.


Create folder for project.

mkdir firstproject
cd firstproject

Now we need to create following files in our project folder

file name: tsconfig.json

This is configuration file for TypeScript compiler.

  "compilerOptions": {
    "target": "es5",
    "module": "system",
    "moduleResolution": "node",
    "sourceMap": true,
    "emitDecoratorMetadata": true,
    "experimentalDecorators": true,
    "removeComments": false,
    "noImplicitAny": false
  "exclude": [

file name: typings.json

This is used to identify TypeScript definition files in AngApp.

  "globalDependencies": {
    "core-js": "registry:dt/core-js#0.0.0+20160602141332",
    "jasmine": "registry:dt/jasmine#2.2.0+20160621224255",
    "node": "registry:dt/node#6.0.0+20160621231320"


file name: package.json

This file contains packages require in AngApp.

  "name": "angular2-demo",
  "version": "1.0.0",
  "scripts": {
    "start": "concurrent \"npm run tsc:w\" \"npm run lite\" ",
    "tsc": "tsc",
    "tsc:w": "tsc -w",
    "lite": "lite-server",
    "typings": "typings",
    "postinstall": "typings install"
  "license": "ISC",
  "dependencies": {
    "angular2": "2.0.0-beta.7",
    "systemjs": "0.19.22",
    "es6-promise": "^3.0.2",
    "es6-shim": "^0.33.3",
    "reflect-metadata": "0.1.2",
    "rxjs": "5.0.0-beta.2",

  "devDependencies": {
    "concurrently": "^2.0.0",
    "lite-server": "^2.1.0",
    "typescript": "^1.7.5",

Open npm command prompt and use following command to install npm packages.

If you get some errors then ingnore them.

Prepare project files

mkdir App

file name: firstproject.component.ts

This file contains code for component.

import {Component} from "angular2/core";

   selector: 'my-app',
   template: '<h2>My First Angular 2 App</h2>
' }) export class AppComponent { msg:string = "Hello World!"; }

file name: firstproject.main.ts

import {bootstrap} from "angular2/platform/browser"
import {AppComponent} from "./firstproject.component"


Move to project folder

cd ..

and create final file

file name: index.html

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Hello World</title>
        transpiler: 'typescript',
        typescriptOptions: { emitDecoratorMetadata: true },
        packages: {'app': {defaultExtension: 'ts'}},
        map: { 'app': './app' }
            .then(null, console.error.bind(console));
