[Fixed] How to rename a component in Angular CLI?


Is there any shortcut to rename a component with the Angular CLI other than manually editing all the component files such as folder name, .css, .ts, spec.ts and app.module.ts?



There is no command which will change the name of all files generated using the component create command. So created ts, html, css/scss, .spec.ts
files need to be manually renamed/edited.

I am a frequent user of angular cli and I think this would be a nice-to-have command as some time we just create angular components and need to rename them. As this rename command is not there, deleting the created angular component, directive, etc and again running the command to create the component is really a pain.
