Getting this error:

Error: Local workspace file ('angular.json') could not be found.


I noticed that after updating angular cli, my existing project started giving this error. Error: Local workspace file ('angular.json') could not be found.

This is complete error

Error: Local workspace file ('angular.json') could not be found.

Solution for the problem

This issue is faced because of mismatch of angular cli version. In older versions file "angular-cli.json" was used for configuration purpose in angular project but angular cli version 6.1.1 used "angular.json" file for configuration. Just run below command.

ng update @angular/cli

It will update your cli version and problem resolves.
