Angular 7 with Bootstrap

To install Bootstrap for Angular project:

  • Open the command prompt.
  • Run the below command.

npm install –save bootstrap@3

There will be an angular.json file instead of .angular-cli.json file, in case a project is created with Angular CLI 6+ (check via ng v ). In this case, add Bootstrap to the styles[] array in the angular.json file, with the path specified as node_modules/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css , and not the ../node_modules/bootstrap/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css, i.e, the leading ../ must not be included in the path.

To add bootstrap.css file in the project:

  • Expand Node Module which is the library root folder.

  • Expand the bootstrap folder.

  • Expand the dist folder.

  • Expand css. The bootstrap.css will be displayed.
  • Expand bootstrap.css.
  • The bootstrap.min.css will be displayed.

  • Open angular.json file.
  • Add the bootstrap.min.css in the style section.

Bootstrap is thus successfully installed for the Angular 7 project and can be used now.
