Scaffold DApps Using @waku/create-app

This guide provides detailed steps to bootstrap your next @waku/sdk project from various example templates using the @waku/create-app package.


Initialise a new @waku/sdk template using any of the following methods:

npx @waku/create-app [PROJECT DIRECTORY]

Next, select a template to initialise your app from:

waku create app demo


If you have previously installed @waku/create-app globally, we recommend uninstalling the package to ensure that npx always uses the latest version.
