Cleos Command Line Interface (CLI)

The Cleos Command Line Interface (CLI) uses text lines to process commands on the EOSIO blockchain platform. Cleos streamlines the development process for software engineers by providing them with access to specific developer tools for interacting with EOSIO blockchains. The CLI is used to read data from the blockchain, send new transactions, to test and deploy smart contracts. Cleos communicates with Keosd, Nodeos, and other EOSIO ecosystem components.
