You can install aecli using your preferred tool (yarn or npm). Here's an npm example

$ npm install --global @aeternity/aepp-cli

Quick start

Let's ensure that CLI installed correctly by running $ aecli. It will show the available commands as below.

$ aecli
Usage: aecli [options] [command]

Options:
  -V, --version                                 output the version number
  -h, --help                                    display help for command

Commands:
  account                                       handle wallet operations
  spend [options] <wallet> <receiver> <amount>  send coins to another account or contract
  name                                          manage AENS names
  contract                                      contract interactions
  oracle                                        interact with oracles
  chain                                         make a request to the node
  inspect [options] <identifier>                get details of a node entity
  tx                                            generate transactions to sign and submit manually
  config [options]                              print the current sdk configuration
  select-node [nodeUrl]                         specify node to use in other commands
  select-compiler [compilerUrl]                 specify compiler to use in other commands
  help [command]                                display help for command

To read documentation of other commands and sub-commands, you can append --help. For example, type aecli account --help to get a list of commands available in account module.

The next step is to create a wallet to use in other commands:

$ aecli account create ./wallet.json
Address _________________________________ ak_21A27UVVt3hDkBE5J7rhhqnH5YNb4Y1dqo4PnSybrH85pnWo7E
Path ____________________________________ /path/to/wallet.json

You need to send some coins to the created wallet.

On testnet you can do that using faucet. Switch to testnet using $ aecli select-node.

Run $ aecli inspect <wallet address> to ensure that it got coins.

$ aecli inspect ak_21A27UVVt3hDkBE5J7rhhqnH5YNb4Y1dqo4PnSybrH85pnWo7E
Account ID ______________________________ ak_21A27UVVt3hDkBE5J7rhhqnH5YNb4Y1dqo4PnSybrH85pnWo7E
Account balance _________________________ 10000ae
Account nonce ___________________________ 0
No pending transactions

At the last step, we will send our coins to another account:

$ aecli spend ./wallet.json ak_AgV756Vfo99juwzNVgnjP1gXX1op1QN3NXTxvkPnHJPUDE8NT 42ae
