The colony-cli package is a command line tool for building colonyStarter packages and running services such as Ganache, Truffle, and Trufflepig to assist with local development alongside the colonyNetwork smart contracts.
You may find it helpful to use Node Version Manager (
nvm) to manage Node versions.
If you are using Linux, check out Linux Setup to ensure Yarn and Docker are set up accordingly.
