Chromia CLI simplifies the development cycle and deployment of Rell dapps, where all the needed capability is available in one CLI. It's a command-line tool that provides a way to interact with the Chromia blockchain using a set of commands.

The Chromia CLI tool is designed to be user-friendly and easy to use. It provides a set of commands that can be used in a terminal or console window and supports a range of options and flags to customize the behavior of the commands.

For information about installing Chromia CLI, see Install and configure Chromia CLI. Once installed, you can use Chromia CLI to interact with the Chromia blockchain and build decentralized applications and services.

Here's the list of commands in Chromia CLI:

Usage: chr [OPTIONS] COMMAND [ARGS]...
