How to Export styles as css file in Angular 4

I am new in Angular 4 and I want to export my styles as

css
file.
When I serve or build the project, it creates a
style.bundle.js
file and add css' as html style element. But I want to export as stylesheet file and load it with
link
element.

"project": {
"name": "ares"
},
"apps": [
{
"name":"desktop",
"root": "src",
"outDir": "dist/desktop",
"assets": [
"assets",
"favicon.ico",
"views/desktop"
],

"main": "main.ts",
"polyfills": "polyfills.ts",
"test": "test.ts",
"tsconfig": "tsconfig.app.json",

"prefix": "app",
"styles": [
"../node_modules/materialize-css/dist/css/materialize.css",
"../node_modules/font-awesome/css/font-awesome.css",
"assets/desktop/css/styles.scss",
"views/desktop/trader/first/assets/css/theme.scss"
],
"scripts": [
"../node_modules/jquery/dist/jquery.js",
"../node_modules/hammerjs/hammer.js",
"../node_modules/materialize-css/dist/js/materialize.js"
],
"environmentSource": "environments/environment.ts",
"environments": {
"dev": "environments/environment.ts",
"prod": "environments/environment.prod.ts"
}
}
],
"e2e": {
"protractor": {
"config": "./protractor.conf.js"
}
},
"lint": [
{
"project": "src/tsconfig.app.json",
"exclude": "**/node_modules/**"
},
{
"project": "src/tsconfig.spec.json",
"exclude": "**/node_modules/**"
},
{
"project": "e2e/tsconfig.e2e.json",
"exclude": "**/node_modules/**"
}
],
"test": {

}
},
"defaults": {

"component": {}
}
}

When you running ng build or ng seve it always create a bundle like styles.bundles.js just for sake of saving some time on dev build. From another hand, if you do ng build --prod it will produce styles.bundle.css.

If you want styles.bundle.css to be produced for your dev build then just add --extract-css flag e.g ng seve --extract-css.

Here is some more details on default flags that might be helpful:
