#VSCode: One #Angular Workspace with multiple projects

In VS Code (Visual Studio Code) you can create a single Workspace with 1 git repo but contain multiple projects. This lets you create library and app and contain them all under the same angular.json as well.

Here’s how.

Create a folder where you’d like to create the Workspace. In my example e:\ngLearn\CLIPlayGround

VS Code will appear. Open the Terminal Ctrl+Shift+`

Now, ask the CLI to create an Workspace, but with no default application:

ng new –createApplication=false

In the prompt give your workspace a name, like my-workspace

It’s take a few minutes to set up. If you open Windows Explorer you’ll see the new workspace made, but without any application inside:

Let’s now add a few applications by using the commands in the new folder

cd .\my-workspace\

ng g application

Run this twice and you’ll then notice there are 2 applications in your workspace: under a new Projects folder
