Monaca CLI is a development environment that can be used to develop Monaca apps locally. Monaca CLI provides a command line interface for using the Monaca Cloud from your local PC. You can create new local projects, import or clone existing projects from the Monaca Cloud to your local PC and start developing Monaca apps with a code editor you like. Monaca CLI allows you to debug your app with inspector integration and remote build your projects without any local setup.
Before getting started with this tutorial, you need to:
install the Monaca CLI with the following command (read more).
$ npm install -g monaca
