Preparing a new Project

The command kanku init will create a default Kankufile which should give you a good starting point.

The option --memory=... defines the RAM of the virtual guest and is optional. Default is 2G of RAM. For more options SEE kanku init --help

# create directory
mkdir MyProject

# cd in project's directory
cd MyProject

kanku init --memory=2G --domain_name my-project
