In order to help people manage their projects, the CLI tool has been created. It helps on many grounds at once, from scaffolding the project to build well-structured applications. The Nest CLI is based on the @angular-devkit package. Also, there're special schematics that are dedicated to the Nest development @nestjs/schematics.
$ npm install -g @nestjs/cli
$ docker pull nestjs/cli[:version] $ docker run -it --rm -p 3000:3000 -v $(pwd)/workspace nestjs/cli[:version]
$ git clone https://github.com/nestjs/nest-cli.git <project> $ cd <project>
With your Node runtime:
$ npm install $ npm run build $ npm link
$ docker build -t nestjs/cli .
