Command: new

The new command enables you to create a new project in the ActiveState Platform from the command line. Before you can activate the project with the State Tool you need to navigate to the project in the ActiveState Platform and create a successful build of your project. Run state activate to get the URL for your new project.


state new [<name>] [-o, --owner <value>] [-p, --path <value>]

You can enter state new and then follow the prompts to provide the project name and organization name, or alternatively use the arguments and flags to provide them without being prompted.

  • <name> The name of the project to be created
  • -o, --owner <value> The owner for the project (eg, your username, or an organization name)
  • -p, --path <value> The path to save the project at
