Intro to Command Line Tools¶
There are a set of custom-designed tools for working with Holochain that can be installed as utilities to your command line to simplify and accelerate the process of Holochain app development. These command line tools are required if you wish to be able to attempt what you are reading about as you continue through the articles on building an app.
However, the command line tools are automatically installed when setting up a development environment, as detailed in the quick start installation guide.
In addition to the installation instructions, there is also an architectural overview of the different functions of the command line tools. You will also learn these organically just by proceeding through the other articles in this chapter and the ones that follow.
