A simple CLI create-sst that sets up a modern web application powered by SST


There's no need to install this CLI. Just use it directly to create your projects.

npx create-sst@latest

This will prompt you for the database option and a folder name. And it will bootstrap the application in that directory.


Pass in the following (optional) options.


Instead of the standard starter, you can choose to use one of our minimal setups or examples as the template to bootstrap.

npx create-sst@latest --template=minimal/javascript-starter



Specify a destination directory instead of typing it into the interactive prompt

npx create-sst@latest my-sst-app

Note that extra -- when using npm init.
