How to get started with JetBrains Fleet

If you’re interested in using JetBrains Fleet for your next software development project, there are a few things you need to do to get started.

First, you’ll need to create a JetBrains account and install the JetBrains Fleet CLI tool. You can find instructions for how to do this in the JetBrains Fleet documentation.

Once you’ve done that, you’ll need to create a new JetBrains Fleet project. You can do this by running the following command:

JetBrains fleet create my-project

This will create a new directory called my-project that contains a basic JetBrains Fleet project.

Next, you’ll need to add some files to your project. The easiest way to do this is to create a file called my-project.json in your project directory and add the following content:

{

“name”: “My Project”,

“description”: “A JetBrains Fleet project”,

“version”: “0.1.0”,

“license”: “MIT”,

“repository”: {

“type”: “git”,

“URL”: “https://github.com/my-username/my-project"

},

“dependencies”: {

“jetbrains/fleet”: “⁰.1.0”

}

}

This file contains basic information about your project, including its name, description, and version number. It also includes a list of dependencies that your project needs to run. In this case, we’re including the fleet dependency, which is required for JetBrains Fleet projects.

Finally, you’ll need to install your project’s dependencies. You can do this by running the following command:

JetBrains fleet install

This will install all of the dependencies that your project needs to run.

Once you’ve done all of this, you’re ready to start using JetBrains Fleet for your software development projects! You can always reach out to us to know more about such trending tools.
