Getting Started


AssemblyLift provides a Command Line Interface (CLI) called asml. The CLI is primarily responsible for building & deploying your application.

The AssemblyLift CLI delegates to language-specific tools for compilation. For example, writing functions with Rust will require that you have installed Cargo.

You can install asml using cargo with:

$ cargo install assemblylift-cli

Running asml help will print the CLI version, as well as a list of commands:

$ asml help
asml 0.2.9

    asml [SUBCOMMAND]

    -h, --help       Prints help information
    -V, --version    Prints version information

    bind    Bind the application to the cloud backend
    burn    Destroy all infrastructure created by 'bind'
    cast    Build the AssemblyLift application
    help    Prints this message or the help of the given subcommand(s)
    init    Initialize a basic AssemblyLift application
    make    Make a new service or function

Hello World!

You can create a new project with the init command. This will scaffold a basic project structure with a single service, containing a single function.

$ asml init --name myapp
$ tree myapp
├── assemblylift.toml
└── services
    └── my-service
        ├── my-function
        │   ├── Cargo.toml
        │   └── src
        │       └──
        └── service.toml

If you like, you can verify everything is working by building the project with cast and then deploying it with bind.
