Global CLI

The Electrode Native global client is installed globally on your machine using the npm install -g electrode-native command.

  • The global client is a lightweight client that contains the ern binary.

  • When you enter an ern command in your terminal, the command first passes through the global client before reaching the local client.

  • The global client role is used to bootstrap first-time platform installation as well as redirect commands to the currently activated local client version.

  • The global client is rarely updated.
