With all of the requirements met, install the CLI to start developing with


  1. Install the CLI

    In your terminal run the following command:

    • Installing on OSX or Linux

    git push platform master

    Take a minute to explore some of the commands available with the CLI by using the command platform list.

That's it! Now that you have the management console set up and the CLI installed on your computer, you're well on your way to exploring all of the ways that can improve your development workflow.
