Start World Locally

Starting a world locally is as simple as running npm start or node boot.js if you are using any of the example worlds or projects created from the yantra init command.

Start the world

cd my-world
npm install
npm start

The console will now output a browser link you can access to view the world.

Local Dev vs Production

Your game is in "development" or "dev" mode when it's started from the command line; this means the game world will only process the game state when your local script is connected and running.

For your world to run without your local connection, you must deploy the world to production.
