Running the client
To run the client for your application, you first have to set it up. Therefore, run the following commands to switch to the
client directory and install the client's dependencies:
cd client npm install
Once you have done that run the client using the following command from inside the
client directory. This will automatically launch a browser and open the client:
npm run serve
You are now able to chat. This even works with multiple browsers concurrently:
You have initialized and run your first wolkenkit application!
All in all, this was pretty easy because you were able to use a template. If you want to learn to build a chat by yourself, have a look at creating an application from scratch. For now, we wish you some happy chatting 😊!
