Installing Astro

December 16, 2023

After geeking about Astro, I decided to try and see if I can get Astro local build running on my machine. First things first, I assume the readers here all meet the prerequistes.


  • Node.js - v18.14.1 or higher.
  • VS Code - VS Code has an Astro extension available.
  • Terminal - Astro is accessed through its command-line interface (CLI).

Here’s the NPM commands to install Astro

Assuming you got all the prerequites installed, here’s what you need to type into the terminal

npm create astro@latest
npm run dev

Wow, that was an easy install! Even easier than setting up a LAMP enviroment for Wordpress.
