Angular Universal Plugin

This build plugin is a utility for supporting Angular Universal on Netlify.

Table of Contents

Installation and Configuration

Manual Installation

Create a netlify.toml in the root of your project. Your file should include the plugins section below:

  command = "ng build --configuration production && ng run {projectName}:serverless:production"
  publish = "dist/{projectName}/browser"

  package = "@netlify/plugin-angular-universal"

If you'd like to install this plugin at a fixed version, install it via your package manager:

npm install -D @netlify/plugin-angular-universal
# or
yarn add -D @netlify/plugin-angular-universal

Read more about file-based plugin installation in our docs.

CLI Usage


To use the Angular Universal plugin while building and deploying with the CLI, you need to have netlify-cli v5.4.13 installed (or a later version).

Please also make sure to use ntl deploy --build --prod (rather than ntl build).

Plugin Side Effects

When this plugin is run as part of the build process using the Netlify CLI, direct changes will be made to your project source:

  1. It will modify your angular.json to add a serverless project configuration.
  2. It will add serverless.ts and tsconfig.serverless.json files.

It is up to you whether to commit these changes to your project. If the plugin makes updates to these files or configurations, it will overwrite what you'd previously committed, and you can commit the new updates. Otherwise, you can stash and ignore them.


If you'd like to build and deploy your project using the Netlify CLI, we recommend this workflow to manage git tracking plugin-generated files:

  1. Make sure all your project's files are committed before running a build with the CLI
  2. Run any number of builds and deploys freely (i.e. netlify build, netlify deploy --build, netlify deploy --prod)
  3. Run git stash --include-unstaged to easily ignore plugin-generated files

It's important to note that the CLI may mix your project's source code and plugin-generated files; this is why we recommend committing all project source files before running CLI builds.


This plugin is currently in beta.

Right now:

  • it does not include out of the box monorepo support
  • it does not support Angular Universal prerendering
