Welcome to Command Line:
Welcome to Command Line. Let’s begin!
The terminal is a text-based programme execution interface. If you’re using any tooling for web development, you’ll almost certainly need to open the command line and run some commands in order to use it (these tools are often referred to as CLI tools — command line interface tools).
Many tools can use by typing commands into the command line; many come pre-installed on your system, and many more can download from package registries. Package registries are similar to app stores, but they are primarily for command-line tools and software.
The command line is a text-based interface for the operating system of a computer. You may use it to navigate and edit the filesystem on your computer. You can use the command line to create new files, alter their contents, delete files, and more!
On Mac and Linux systems, we use a program named Bash to get to the command line. This course will focus on Bash. Despite the fact that Windows has its own built-in command line, Windows users can also download Bash. Later in the course, we’ll go through what it implies and how to set it up on your own device, but for now, feel free to skip ahead.
Features of Command Line:
One of the most common criticisms of the command line is that it has a poor user interface. The command line can be intimidating the first time you see it. A blank screen with a blinking cursor, with little obvious help on what to do.
They may appear unwelcoming on the surface, but there’s a lot you can do with them. We promise that with a little guidance and practise, using them will become second nature! This is why we’ve included this course: to assist you in getting started in what appears to be a hostile environment in your field.
This course will guide you through the main features of the command line, beginning with navigation and concluding with environment configuration.
Here are some useful tools to help you along your journey!
Setting up an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) can be difficult for beginners. The Online Compiler will enable you to run your code inside your browser without the need to install an IDE. If you need a more detailed explanation of a specific topic, the best place to find answers is in the Official Documentation.
