NodeJS is the platform needed for Aurelia development. Checkout our NodeJS Environment Setup.

Step 1 - Download Aurelia Package

Before we download Aurelia package, let's create a folder on desktop where our app will be placed.

Now we can download the package from official Aurelia website.

Aurelia supports ES2016 and TypeScript. We will use ES2016. Extract the downloaded files inside the aureliaApp folder that we created above.
