The CLI, or Command Line Interface, is the tool you will use to interact with Cloud Foundry. The CLI runs in a terminal window on your computer and makes REST calls to the Cloud Foundry API.
Follow the instructions to install the CLI: https://github.com/cloudfoundry/cli#downloads
You can test that it works by running
And you will see output similar to:
cf version 6.50.0+4f0c3a2ce.2020-03-03
The CLI is a self-documenting tool. For example, you can run:
cf helpto see a list of the most commonly used commands
cf help -ato see a list of all the available commands
cf <command> --helpto see details on using a specific command
Once you have the CLI installed and working, it is time to login to Cloud Foundry.
