amber new

This is the first command that you will run when generating a new Amber application. It creates a new Amber application with a default directory structure and configuration setting at the path you specify.

An .amber.yml configuration file is generated a long with the default application directory structure. This stores some metadata for the Amber CLI to make use of for generating migrations, scaffolding templates, and more.
