Installing & Setting Up Remake

Install Node.js

Go to the main website for Node.js, download the installer, and run it.

👉 Node.js Website

Install Remake

After you're done installing Node, you'll be able to install Remake.

Node comes with a command line program called npm, which allows you to install packages through your terminal.

Open your terminal and run this command to install Remake globally:

npm install remake -g

Once it's done installing, you'll have access to the remake command in your terminal.

Create the starter project

Remake comes with a working Kanban app project that you can play around with.

You can generate this starter project with the following command:

remake create example-app

Here, example-app is the name of the directory you want your new Remake app to live in.

Change into that directory after the starter app is finished being created:

cd example-app

Run the dev server

In order to use and build a Remake application on your local computer, you need to run Remake's local servier.

To get the local server started, run the following command from inside your project's directory:

npm run dev

Great! Now you have a local Remake server running on your computer!

Check out in a browser!

In a web browser, go to http://localhost:3000 to see your new Kanban starter application.


  • All of the application files are in the app/ directory.
  • When you're building a Remake app, you'll rarely have to edit a file that's outside the app/ directory.

Before moving on to the next step,

  1. Load your app in a web browser
  2. Sign up for a user account in your app
