Create Steedos App

The easiest way to get started with Steedos Platform is by using create-steedos-app. This CLI tool enables you to quickly start building a new steedos application, with everything set up for you. You can create a new app using the default steedos template, or by using one of the official Steedos examples. To get started, use the following command:

npx create-steedos-app@latest
# or
yarn create steedos-app
# or
pnpm create steedos-app

To create a new app in a specific folder, you can send a name as an argument. For example, the following command will create a new Steedos app called contract-app in a folder with the same name:

npx create-steedos-app@latest contract-app
# or
yarn create steedos-app contract-app
# or
pnpm create steedos-app contract-app


create-steedos-app comes with the following options:

  • -e, --example [name]|[github-url] - An example to bootstrap the app with. You can use an example name from the Steedos Platform repo or a GitHub URL. The URL can use any branch and/or subdirectory.
  • --example-path <path-to-example> - In a rare case, your GitHub URL might contain a branch name with a slash (e.g. bug/fix-1) and the path to the example (e.g. foo/bar). In this case, you must specify the path to the example separately: --example-path foo/bar
  • --use-npm - Explicitly tell the CLI to bootstrap the app using npm. To bootstrap using yarn we recommend to run yarn create steedos-app
  • --use-pnpm - Explicitly tell the CLI to bootstrap the app using pnpm. To bootstrap using pnpm we recommend running pnpm create steedos-app
