The recent version 1.1 release of the IBM Cloud Developer Tools CLI introduced some great new features to help developers become even more productive... A new project creation flow, new helper utility methods, and multi-container application support, just to name a few. In this post I'd like to focus on one new feature in particular: the shell command.
IBM Cloud Application Tools (ICAT) launched on June 9, 2016 under the name "IBM Cloud Tools for Swift" (ICT). It was an experimental project aimed to improve the experience for Swift developers. Since launch, we have released 12 updates, including the final 22.214.171.124 build. ICT was rebranded to ICAT, with broader support for Swift, Java, Node, and other languages. Along the way, ICAT was featured in the press and at Apple's Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC) 2016.
