CLI Installation

First of all, download and install Go. Version 1.11 or higher is required.

Next, download the latest version of the Create Go App CLI to your local machine:

go get github.com/create-go-app/cli

Installation is done by using the go build1 command with $GOPATH/bin:

go build -i -o $GOPATH/bin/cgapp github.com/create-go-app/cli

Check, that the CLI is installed correctly by the --version (or -v) command:

cgapp --version

# Output: cgapp version 1.x.x
