What makes our Perl different?
1 Create an Account
Head over to our platform and create your free account to get started. You can even sign up using your GitHub to import your projects directly.
2 Get Perl via Projects
Once you’ve created your account, you can set up your first Project.
Projects let you store your language and the packages you need to run your development environment in one place. You can share these projects with your team by inviting them to the organization the projects are stored within.
3 Install via our CLI Tool
Once you’ve created your project and added your packages, your project will build using our secure build platform.
When the build is complete, you can easily install and manage it using our CLI tool.
4 Accessing your projects via our CLI Tool
You can deploy and manage your projects using our CLI tool. Install packages, push changes to teammates, install the latest updates and more using our State Tool.
And that's it!
You’ve got an account with us, and you should be able to access your Project using our CLI tool on your local machine. If you’d like to share your project with your team, you can follow this guide. Happy Coding!
