Developing for Cheddar development was designed to be as easy and quick to make as possible. Unfortunately, the workings can be confusing to someone not familiar with how cheddar works. This chapter will cover how Cheddar works, and how to develop for it. If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask on Slack, Stack Exchange Chat, or Gitter.

makeinstalled. Once you've done that clone the
developbranch from Github:
$ git clone -b develop http://github.com/cheddar-lang/Cheddar.git
now in that directory, you're going to see a
src/folder. That is where the source code is.

$ npm install
