Use a Stackfile


What is a Stackfile?

Stackfile has a basic structure for you to use because it already has predefined Template specifications and a set of Plugins that you apply only when using the stk create app command. This means you can create projects that already have Plugins using this single command.

Prerequisites

To use a Stackfile, follow the steps below:

Step 1. Check available Stackfiles

Check the available Stackfiles in the Stack you imported. Run the command:

stk list stackfile

Step 2. Use the Stackfile

Choose the Stackfile you want to use and execute the command:

stk create app <PROJECT-NAME> -S <STACK-NAME/STACKFILE-NAME>

Step 3. Confirm your project's creation

Run the command below to check if your project was created:

cd <PROJECT-NAME>

You can see the contents of the project folder you just created.

  • Optional: if you want to see the hierarchy of folders and files, run the command below:
tree -a

Next Steps

You can use Tasks in your project, for more details see the Use Tasks tutorial.
