Create the frappe-bench directory
Faris Ansari
May 19, 2021

Let's create our project folder which will contain our apps and sites. Run the following command:

bench init frappe-bench

This will create a directory named frappe-bench in your current working directory. It will do the following:

  1. Create a python virtual environment under env directory.
  2. Fetch and install the frappe app as a python package.
  3. Install node modules of frappe.
  4. Build static assets.
Add details about how to specify version

It might be helpful to note that you have the option to specify which version of frappe to install. For example, to install version 13:

bench init --version version-13 frappe-bench

Without the --version parameter, the latest development branch is installed (currently version 14)
