New opensource to replace long "Getting Started"s forever

· 3 min read

Do you find long readmes/wikis with complicated setup instructions frustrating?

So Do I :)

Instead of writing down long instructions with prerequisites, installation command, configuration changes and all this with operation system variations notes - let's create an amazing experience for the people who needs the software you created. No one cares about the "steps" along the way, just make it happen.

So I created CoCMD. A simple and open cli app to make the onboarding and playbooks experience amazing.

How does it look?

Let's take for example our Kubernetes package. I created several onboarding and playbooks that can be useful.

It's important to talk about specific "stories" where the benefit of using CoCMD is obvious.

Project Onboarding

It's the first impression that the new hire gets from the company and it's the first impression that the company gets from the new hire. It's also a very important process for the new hire to get to know the company and the people in it.

Usually, every team has a set of routines and procedures that are executed on a regular basis. This can also be called "playbooks" or "runbooks".

CoCMD can help you automate these routines and make them available to your team.

Codebase CMDOps

Any project can have CMDOps (Command Line Operations). Lets say for example, your project requires some installation steps, or you want to add some shortcuts for your team or community to use.

I created several public CoCMD Packages for Programming, Devops, Databases and general Machine setup. You can visit in or run
