Get Moving

First, please make sure Pakyow is installed on your local system. You can find details here.

Pakyow ships with a few command-line tools that help you generate and manage your projects. These tools make creating a new project really easy. Open up a terminal prompt and create a new project:

pakyow new warmup

You should see output similar to this:

Bundle complete! 4 Gemfile dependencies, 30 gems now installed.
Use `bundle show [gemname]` to see where a bundled gem is installed.
Done! Run `cd warmup; bundle exec pakyow server` to get started!

Pakyow creates the entire project structure for us, allowing us to get right to work. Move into the new warmup directory by typing cd warmup and then start the server with the following command:

bundle exec pakyow server

Go to localhost:3000 in a web browser to see your project running!
