We’ve created a CLI (command-line interface) which offers the following functionalities.
You may download the latest version from the GitHub release page.
There’s a binary version for Linux, Mac and Windows for 32 and 64 bit architecture. If you’re not sure, you probably want the 64 bit version.
You can also download it via a
$ curl -L -o backend.gz \ https://github.com/staticbackendhq/cli /releases/download/v1.0.0-beta1/ binary-for-linux-64-bit.gz
windows in the URL above. For Windows add
The downloaded file is compressed to make it faster to download.
This next command decompresses it, replacing
gunzip backend.gz or gzip -d backend.gz
Every file has “permissions” about whether it can be read, written, or executed.
So before we use this file, we need to mark this file as executable:
chmod +x backend

But we want to be able to say
backend --help without specifying the full file
path every time. We can do this by moving the
backend binary to one of the
directories listed in your
PATH environment variable:
sudo mv backend /usr/local/bin
You may run
backend to see the usage. For the version
the local development server is available.
You can start building your application locally.
Eventually, this tool will allow you to manage your backend database, add indexes, export your data, view form submissions, etc.
We are actively working on this tool to make sure you have the best experience possible building and managing your applications.
