I purused the package.json file and tried to learn a little about the application’s configuration and what modules are being imported.
After the name, description, and version number of the application came a big json block for scripts.

For example, the ‘start’ command includes concurrently "tsc -w" "lite-server" which starts the server and watches for files that change so they can be recompiled.
The next major block was for dependencies. It included the ‘@angular/
