Application Cloning

You can bootstrap any <form.io> application within GitHub easily with our one line bootstrap command. First find a repository that you wish to bootstrap. You can find some on Formio Github.

Install the formio-cli tool by running this command in the command line.

npm install -g formio-cli

Use the bootstrap command to clone an application. This will both download the sample application to your local machine and set up a formio project with the proper template.

Once the app is downloaded and set up, run the serve command to do local development.
