Prerequisites #

There are a couple tools you'll need to build a project

The first dependency is Node.js. If it’s already installed run node -v to check the version and compare it against the latest stable release. If you don’t get a response or have an outdated version, download and install the latest release. Node also includes npm (Node Package Manager) which is used to install Wee’s dependencies.

Next install the Wee CLI (Command Line Interface) from npm by running npm install -g wee-cli. This allows you to build your project and execute commands.

Setup #

Next, navigate to your project directory in command line by running cd path/to/your/project or typing cd with a space and dragging your project folder into the command line window. Now run npm install to install the dependencies and check out the build docs to launch your project.
