In this guide, you'll learn about the Frontastic developer tooling and set up your project for development.
The following should be installed locally:
Frontastic provides developers with essential tooling to help them with the development and deployment.
These are two of the essential tool for developers:
- Frontastic CLI is our commandline interface that you can use for development. You can read the Frontastic CLI quick start guide to learn about it in details.
- Frontastic sandbox is a virtual machine hosted in the cloud that you can provision from the developer area of the Frontastic studio and use for developing extensions. Read the Frontastic sandbox article to learn more about using them.
The Frontastic CLI is the central entry point for Frontastic development. It's possible to run Webpack, which prepares all frontend code directly on your machine and everything else in the cloud.
Run the command below to install the latest version of the Frontastic CLI
brew tap frontasticgmbh/tap && brew install frontastic-cli
