We’ll start by installing Craft CMS directly on your computer in a local development environment.
Craft CMS is a web application meant for a web server, and a local development environment provides web server software on your personal workstation. This way, we can work with Craft freely and privately without the need to set up a hosting account.
To get up and running, we’ll need to get familiar with three tools:
- The command line utility that’s built into your operating system.
- A local web server that meets Craft’s minimum requirements.
- A code editor.
