Ngx-Bootstrap - Environment Setup

In this chapter, you will learn in detail about setting up the working environment of ngx-bootstrap on your local computer. As ngx-bootstrap is primarily for angular projects, make sure you have Node.js and npm and angular installed on your system.

Create an angular project

First create a angular project to test ngx-bootstrap components using following commands.

ng new ngxbootstrap

It will create an angular project named ngxbootstrap.

Add ngx-bootstrap as dependency

You can use the following command to install ngx-bootstrap in newly created project−

npm install ngx-bootstrap

You can observe the following output once ngx-bootstrap is successfully installed −

+ ngx-bootstrap@5.6.1
added 1 package from 1 contributor and audited 1454 packages in 16.743s

Now, to test if bootstrap works fine with Node.js, create the test component using following command −

ng g component test
CREATE src/app/test/test.component.html (19 bytes)
CREATE src/app/test/test.component.spec.ts (614 bytes)
CREATE src/app/test/test.component.ts (267 bytes)
CREATE src/app/test/test.component.css (0 bytes)
UPDATE src/app/app.module.ts (388 bytes)

Clear content of app.component.html and update it following contents.



Update content of app.module.ts to include ngx-bootstrap accordion module. We'll add other module in subsequent chapters. Update it following contents.


import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';
import { BrowserAnimationsModule } from '@angular/platform-browser/animations';
import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { TestComponent } from './test/test.component';
import { AccordionModule } from 'ngx-bootstrap/accordion'
   declarations: [
   imports: [
   providers: [],
   bootstrap: [AppComponent]
export class AppModule { }

Update content of index.html to include bootstrap.css. Update it following contents.


<!doctype html>
<html lang="en">
      <meta charset="utf-8">
      <base href="/">
      <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1">
      <link rel="icon" type="image/x-icon" href="favicon.ico">
      <link href="" rel="stylesheet">

In next chapter, we'll update test component to use ngx-bootstrap components.
