Cool! The latest and greatest update to Angular (is it?) is in, in the coatings of Angular 6. Some of us love shiny new things and wanna switch our Angular 5 projects to 6. Here’s how you can upgrade to Angular 6 from Angular 5 in 2 minutes.

Set timer…. Go!

Some NPMs

Run npm install -g @angular/cli@latest to update global Angular CLI to 6+

Run npm install @angular/cli@latest to update the project CLI

Updating Angular CLI to 6

Then ng update @angular/cli

Next, ng update @angular/core

If all is well, run

ng update

Then finally, if any audit fixing needed, run

npm audit fix
