To add all our changes:
git add -A
then we have to commit these changes:
git commit -m "First commit before deployment"
You can change the commit title as you want. Next we have to run: ==but please don’t forget to change the repo-name and the username ==
git remote add origin email@example.com:your-username-here/your-repo-name-here.git

404 page. You can deploy your final
dist folder only to
ng build --prod
dist folder. Just drag it and drop it on this part of page in `Netlify
This solution will work but it’s not the best. We won’t be able to use
Netlify’s continuous development
Here’s my deployment
