Yesterday I updated Angular Cli tool and tried to create new project but unfortunately an exception in the terminal window the only result I’ve got. Right now I am using MacOS Mojave version 10.14.5 and Angular Cli version is 8.0.1

The error stack trace:
Workspace needs to be loaded before it is used.
Error: Workspace needs to be loaded before it is used.

After spending some time to play around with uninstalling/installing npm, node, angular cli, downgrade the version and googling I find this thread Workspace needs to be loaded before it is used · Issue #14591 · angular/angular-cli ,, and my bad I did not read it careful, so kept to waste time with sort of not working solutions.

Finally I pushed myself read each message in that thread I took careful look at my home folder where was .angular-config.json file. This particular file was causing this error (even it was empty).

So, just removed .angular-config.json and ng new myApp got back to work!
