Synchro Command Line Interface

synchro -- Synchro Command Line Interface

synchro is a command-line tool for installing and managing your Synchro Node servers and applications.

npm install synchro -g

Use the --help command to get basic comand help:

synchro --help

After installing the command line interface, you need to authenticate to the Synchro server so that you can download the required packages. Go to to create an account. Then run:

synchro auth

When prompted, supply the email address and password that you used to set up your account on the web site. You will only have to do this once per machine.

After authenticating, create a new directory and switch to it, then run:

synchro init

This will install the Synchro server application and use npm to install all required packages.

Once Synchro has been initialized, you can create your first Synchro app by doing:

synchro new hello-world

You can start the server to play with your new app by doing:

node app.js

Or if you prefer:

npm start

Note: Use the -h option to get detailed help on an individual command. For example:

synchro new -h
