The CLI is the officially supported way to create and maintain Dojo 2 apps.
WARNING This is alpha software. It is not yet production ready, so you should use at your own risk.
It is designed to save you time, by promoting a standardised workflow, and automating away more mundane boilerplate tasks.
You will need node v6+.
Getting the cli
You can install from npm:
npm i @dojo/cli -g
In a terminal, run:

How to use
The basic groups and commands
The CLI has the following format:
dojo group [command] - where [command] is optional
build is the group, and no command is specified, so the default build command is run.
The above will output generic help information.
dojo build custombuild
build is the group and
custombuild is an installed command.
The CLI has the following in-built options:
dojo -h, --help - provides a list of help as detailed above.
The CLI has the following in-built groups:
dojo version - provides information on the versions of installed commands and the cli itself.
dojo create app and
dojo build are not installed by default with @dojo/cli. To use them, you must install them separately, e.g. with
npm i @dojo/cli-create-app -g.
