[Solved] how to find my angular version in my project?

I have setup the angular code on my local machine. I need to know the version of the angular that I am using in the project. how can I easily find it in cmd prompt?

Solution #1:

There are several ways you can do that:

  1. Go into node_modules/@angular/core/package.json and check version field.
  2. If you need to use it in your code, you can import it from the @angular/core:

    import { VERSION } from '@angular/core';

  3. Inspect the rendered DOM – Angular adds the version to the main component element:

    <my-app ng-version="4.1.3">
