Quick Start (CLI)
A short intro in using Synpse through a command-line client
In this short quick-start tutorial we will prepare devices using the dashboard (as it generates a helpful command).
Create a new device token from the Provisioning section
Once you have your account, install synpse agent on the device. To do that, you will first need to provision the device registration token. These tokens allow for a limited (or unlimited) amount of devices to register to the system.
Go to your device provisioning page and click on a "provision device" button. It should show you a command that already has your project and registration token prepared:
$ curl https://downloads.synpse.net/install.sh | \
AGENT_PROJECT=<YOUR PROJECT> \
AGENT_REGISTRATION_TOKEN=<YOUR TOKEN> \
After a few seconds, you should be able to see the device in your terminal with
$ synpse devices

You can repeat this process for as many devices as you have.
Apps in Synpse are a set of containers. If you are coming from a Kubernetes background, think of an app as a Pod, if you used Docker Compose before - it's a very similar concept.

You can modify this manifest as you wish, for example setting different ports, volumes, etc. Let's expose Node-RED on a different port by modifying ports section to

nodered-synpse.yamland run application create command:
synpse deploy -f nodered-synpse.yaml
