In this article, we'll build a web application using the latest version of Angular. Then we'll add ESLint which analyzes the JavaScript code statically to find any problems.


Before you start, you need to install and configure the tools below (if you don't already have them installed) to create the Angular application:

  • Git: Git is a distributed version control system. We'll use it to sync the repository.
  • Node.js and npm: Node.js is a JavaScript code runtime software based on Google's V8 engine. npm is a package manager for Node.js (Node Package Manager). We'll use them to build and run the Angular application and install the libraries.
  • Angular CLI: Angular CLI is a command line utility tool for Angular. We'll use it to create the base structure of the Angular application.
  • IDE (for example Visual Studio Code or WebStorm): an Integrated Development Environment is a tool with a graphical interface to help in the development of applications. We'll use it to develop the Angular application.

Getting Started

Create the Angular application

Angular is a development platform for building web, mobile and desktop applications using HTML, CSS, and TypeScript (JavaScript). Currently, Angular is at version 14 and Google is the main maintainer of the project.

First, let's create the application with the Angular base structure using the @angular/cli with the route file and the SCSS style format.

✔ Packages installed successfully.
    Successfully initialized git.

Now we will install the libraries and add the ESLint settings.

ng add @angular-eslint/schematics
ℹ Using package manager: npm
✔ Found compatible package version: @angular-eslint/schematics@14.2.5.
✔ Package information loaded.

The package @angular-eslint/schematics@14.2.5 will be installed and executed.
Would you like to proceed? Yes
✔ Packages successfully installed.

    All @angular-eslint dependencies have been successfully installed 🎉

    Please see for how to add ESLint configuration to your project.

    We detected that you have a single project in your workspace and no existing linter wired up, so we are configuring ESLint for you automatically.

    Please see for more information.

CREATE .eslintrc.json (984 bytes)
UPDATE package.json (1511 bytes)
UPDATE angular.json (3447 bytes)
✔ Packages installed successfully.

Next, we will run the command below to validate the ESLint installation and configuration:

npm run lint

> angular-eslint@1.0.0 lint /home/rodrigokamada/angular-eslint
> ng lint

Linting "angular-eslint"...

All files pass linting.

And you're all set! The message "All files pass linting" shows that no problems were found.

The application repository is available here.


This is what we covered in this article:

  • We created an Angular application.
  • We added ESLint to analyze and find problems with the code.

You can use this to check your application code before deploying to your environment.

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed the article!
