About Edward

Edward is a command line tool for managing local instances of microservices.

Edward will build and launch groups of services in your development environment with just a single call to edward start. No more long rows of Terminal tabs!

Services run in the background, and you can follow the logs for a single service as and when you need with edward log

Need to rebuild? Just run edward restart, or set up a watch on the source folder.

When you’re all done for the day, just run edward stop.
