Running the project
Nylo projects run in the exact 'normal' way you'd build a Flutter app. Depending on which IDE you have chosen, this part will be slightly different.
Once you have done the above steps, try running the project. If the build is successful, the app will display Nylo's default landing screen.
Metro CLI tool
Nylo provides a CLI tool called Metro. It's been built, so you can run commands in the terminal to create things. With Metro, you can create the following in your project:
- Stateful widgets and stateless widgets
- API Services

dart run nylo_framework:main make:model Property will create a new 'Property' model in your project.
To access the menu, you can run the below in the terminal.
dart run nylo_framework:main
