To start working with your own project built on Mailchimp Open Commerce you can start by using our new CLI. The CLI is the quickest and easiest way to develop on Open Commerce. It allows you to create and work with API, Admin, and Storefront projects all via the command line.
What you need
We recommend installing nvm
In addition, you need to have your system setup for SSH authentication with GitHub
Install the CLI

Creating a project
You can create your Open Commerce project by running:
reaction create-project api <your-project-name>

Install the project dependencies:
Finally, start the server in development mode:
reaction develop api

This expects that the project itself was built using the latest version of the CLI as explained in the above steps.
Example, instead of the above command, you may skip mentioning 'api' and just use:
This will start the Open Commerce GraphQL server and Mongo Server. Press Ctrl+C to stop.
