$ npm install -g idyll
This gives you access to the global

these instructions to install it.
$ idyll create $ cd my-post-name
idyll create command will create a new folder and generate the
basic file structure for your new post. Use
cd to navigate to the newly
created post folder.
This will open the post in your web browser. Edit the file
index.idyll to make changes, and your browser will automatically update with the changes. See the docs for more info.
$ idyll publish
