How can I check which version of Angular I'm using?

How can I tell which version of Angular I am using?

I have tried:

angular --version
angular --v
angular -version
angular -v

but get -bash: angular: command not found

I know by yeoman --version that I am using 0.9.6

But how do get the angularjs version?

Attention: The following only checks the Angular-CLI version!!!:

Both commands work:

Just Run ng v in command You will get result like Angular CLI: 7.3.9 Node: 12.11.0 OS: win32 x64 Angular: 7.2.15 ... common, compiler, compiler-cli, core, f ... language-service, platform-browser, pla ... router Package Version ------------------------------------------- @angular-devkit/architect 0.13.9 @angular-devkit/build-angular 0.13.9 @angular-devkit/build-optimizer 0.13.9 @angular-devkit/build-webpack 0.13.9 @angular-devkit/core 7.3.9 @angular-devkit/schematics 7.3.9 @angular/cli 7.3.9 @ngtools/webpack 7.3.9 @schematics/angular 8.0.0 @schematics/update 0.13.9 rxjs 6.5.3 typescript 3.1.6 webpack 4.29.0

Edit: When this answer was written, there was only AngularJS 1.x. Look in the answers below for Angular versions >= 2.

AngularJS does not have a command line tool.

You can get the version number from the JavaScript file itself.

Header of the current angular.js:

/**
 * @license AngularJS v1.0.6
 * (c) 2010-2012 Google, Inc. http://angularjs.org
 * License: MIT
 */

If you are using angular-cli, simply use command:

ng v

Jason
Guest

It will be Here..

../project_name/bower_components/angular/angular.js

/**
 * @license AngularJS v1.0.6
 * (c) 2010-2012 Google, Inc. http://angularjs.org

For Angular 1 or 2 (but not for Angular 4+) :

you can also open the console on the developer tools of whatever browser you use and type angular.version to access the Javascript object that holds angular version.

Very useful when the script is minified with no header comment.

Jason

For angular 4+ use,

  • ng version
  • ng v

Please note ng -v option does not work in Angular 7+.

Jason
Guest

you can just type ng version
thats it

Jason

For Angular 2+, in any modern browser having developper tools (F12) you can inspect the top level application tag.

For Internet Explorer 11 or Edge you can find information here :Angular version Number

Works for Angular 2+
Chrome browser

There are multiple ways: You may verify it from your package.json file You use the following command: ng –version The command above will result in the following output: Angular CLI: 7.0.3 Node: 9.4.0 OS: darwin x64 Angular: 7.0.1 … animations, common, compiler, compiler-cli, core, forms … http, language-service, platform-browser … platform-browser-dynamic, router Package Version @angular-devkit/architect 0.10.3 @angular-devkit/build-angular 0.10.3 @angular-devkit/build-optimizer 0.10.3 @angular-devkit/build-webpack 0.10.3 @angular-devkit/core 7.0.3 @angular-devkit/schematics 7.0.3 @angular/cli 7.0.3 @ngtools/webpack 7.0.3 @schematics/angular 7.0.3 @schematics/update 0.10.3 rxjs 6.3.3 typescript 3.1.4 webpack 4.19.1 So, the version of Angular, Angular CLI, Node and many other packages can be verified from here.

It’s very simple,
you can see in package.json file

If you are using angular-cli, then you can check it easily by typing

ng -v

or ng v in Angular 8, in Terminal or Bash. Note: Run the command within the project directory.

You should get something like this:

angular-cli: 1.0.0-beta.24
node: 7.4.0
os: darwin x64
@angular/common: 2.4.3
@angular/compiler: 2.4.3
@angular/core: 2.4.3
@angular/forms: 2.4.3
@angular/http: 2.4.3
@angular/platform-browser: 2.4.3
@angular/platform-browser-dynamic: 2.4.3
@angular/router: 3.4.3
@angular/compiler-cli: 2.4.3

If you are using VS Code editor .

Go to Explorer panel on left side -> find package.json & open it -> under dependencies find @angular/core.

This is your angular version as core is the main feature

Same like above answer, you can check in browser by inspecting element, if it is AngularJS we can see something like below.

The ng-app directive tells AngularJS that this is the root element of the AngularJS application.

All AngularJS applications must have a root element.

In the browser’s developer console (press F12 to open it), you can type the following,

angular.version.full

it will give you the full version, e.g. (depending on your current version). [It actually gets the full property of angular.version object.]

"1.4.3"

So, to see the full object, if you type

angular.version

It will give you the full version object containing version information like full, major, minor and also the codeName, e.g.

Object {full: "1.4.3", major: 1, minor: 4, dot: 3, codeName: "foam-acceleration"}

Jason

For Angular 1 or 2 (but not for Angular 4+): You can also open the console and go to the element tab on the developer tools of whatever browser you use. Or Type angular.version to access the Javascript object that holds angular version. For Angular 4+ There is are the number of ways as listed below : Write below code in the command prompt/or in the terminal in the VS Code.(up to 3) ng version or ng –version (Find the image for the reference) ng v ng -v In the terminal you can find the angular version as shown in… Read more »

For angular JS you can find it on angular-animate.js file as below:

/**
* @license AngularJS v1.4.8
* (c) 2010-2015 Google, Inc. http://angularjs.org
* License: MIT
*/

You could also check your package.json:

"dependencies": {
    "@angular/common": "^5.0.0",
    "@angular/compiler": "^5.0.0",
    "@angular/core": "^5.0.0",
    "@angular/forms": "^5.0.0",
    "@angular/http": "^5.0.0",
    "@angular/platform-browser": "^5.0.0",
    "@angular/platform-browser-dynamic": "^5.0.0",
    "@angular/router": "^5.0.0",
  }

(The caret ^ will update you to the most recent major version (the first number).
^4.3.0 will match any 4.x.x release including 4.4.0, but will hold off on 5.0.0.
The tilde ~ matches the most recent minor version (the middle number).
~4.3.0 will match all 4.3.x versions, but will miss 4.4.0.)

Jason

On your project folder, open the command terminal and type

ng -v

it will give you a list of items, in that you will be able to see the angular version. See the screenshot.

version details

You can also check it by inspecting the elements on the page:

  1. press F12 to open Browser’s developer tools.

  2. Inspect an Element.

  3. Expand Body

  4. You will see the version of Angular, like the following:

ng-version=”4.3.6″

Jason
Guest

Now it is ng -v

If you are useing angular cli then you can check useing

ng --version

Now it is ng -v

Or you can also check in

pakage.json file

 "dependencies": {
    "@angular/animations": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/common": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/compiler": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/core": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/forms": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/http": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/platform-browser": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/platform-browser-dynamic": "^4.0.0",
    "@angular/router": "^4.0.0",
    "angular-in-memory-web-api": "^0.3.2",
    "core-js": "^2.4.1",
    "rxjs": "^5.1.0",
    "zone.js": "^0.8.4"
  },

There are many way, you check angular version Just pent the comand
prompt(for windows) and type

1. ng version
2. ng v
3. ng -v

check the angular version using comand line

4. You can pakage.json file

check the angular version on pakage.json file

5.You can check in browser by presing F12 then goto elements tab

check the angular version on your browser

Full understanding of subversion about(x.x.x) please see angular documentation angularJS and angular 2+

Jason

For AngularJS – Use angular.version

console.log(angular.version);
<script src="//unpkg.com/angular/angular.js"></script>
Jason

To Angular 4, many of the options no longer work. Update July 2017 Two posibilities:

1) The simplest one is to open the package.json of our project
and to check the versions used, among them the one of Angular.

enter image description here

2) After executing ng serve, we open the inspector of elements of the
explorer that we use and we can observe the version as in the
following image.

enter image description here

Jason

just go to your angular project directory via terminal and ng -v give all information like this

Angular CLI: 1.7.4
Node: 8.11.1
OS: linux x64
Angular: 5.2.11
... animations, common, compiler, compiler-cli, core, forms
... http, language-service, platform-browser
... platform-browser-dynamic, router

@angular/cli: 1.7.4
@angular-devkit/build-optimizer: 0.3.2
@angular-devkit/core: 0.3.2
@angular-devkit/schematics: 0.3.2
@ngtools/json-schema: 1.2.0
@ngtools/webpack: 1.10.2
@schematics/angular: 0.3.2
@schematics/package-update: 0.3.2
typescript: 2.5.3
webpack: 3.11.0

If you check ng-v outside angular project directoty then it will show only angular-cli version.

Jason

Another way would be to import VERSION constant from @angular/core and then dumping to console with:

console.log(VERSION.full); //5.2.11

Works in:

Not sure about Angular 2 and 3. (if someone could test that; pages are not available)


For AngularJS 1.x use angular.version:

console.log(angular.version); //1.7.4

enter image description hereIn the new version of angular cli the [ng -v] will not work.yoy have to type [ng version].
