Using a template
The simplest way to initialize a new application is to use a ready-made template as its base. If you need more control you may consider starting from scratch.
Using the default template
To initialize a new application based on the default template run the following commands:
mkdir <app> cd <app> wolkenkit init
This will download the default template that you can use as a starting point to build your own application.
Using a custom template
If you create wolkenkit applications regularly you may want to create a custom template. For that, all you need to do is storing your custom template in a Git repository. Then, when Initializing a new application, you can use the
--template flag to provide the repository:
mkdir <app> cd <app> wolkenkit init --template email@example.com:<org>/<repository>.git
Perhaps you need to refer to a specific branch or tag. For that, add the
# character and the branch or tag to the Git path:
wolkenkit init --template firstname.lastname@example.org:<org>/<repository>.git#<branch-or-tag>
If you don't specify a branch or a tag explicitly, the CLI uses
master as default.
