Kitura create command no longer exist

In chapter 13, we’re tasked to create a customized Kitura project using create. Unfortunately the Kitura cli no longer contains the create command.

I have the same problem:

==> Installing kitura from ibm-swift/kitura
==> Downloading https://github.com/IBM-Swift/kitura-cli/releases/download/0.1.0/kitura-cli_0.1.0_darwin.tar.gz

Kitura CLI is a tool for simplifying the development process around Kitura projects.

Example:
- This application allows you to quickly generate a cloud ready application:

See 'kitura init -h' for more information

kitura [flags]
kitura [command]

Available Commands:
build Build the project in a local container
help Help about any command
idt Install IBM Cloud Developer Tools
init Initialize a Kitura project
run Run the project in a local container.

Flags:
-h, --help help for kitura
-v, --version Prints the kitura-cli version number.

Use “kitura [command] --help” for more information about a command.

@seabaylea Can you please help with this when you get a chance? Thank you - much appreciated! :]

Its still possible to obtain/use the old Kitura CLI - can do that with the following steps:

brew uninstall kitura
brew untap ibm-swift/kitura
cd ~
git clone http://github.com/IBM-Swift/homebrew-kitura
cd homebrew-kitura
git checkout ec3ff92f97cb468bfe805e86a31eb16ced85cacb
brew tap ibm-swift/kitura ~/homebrew-kitura
brew install kitura

You can then following the instructions in Chapter 13. If you then want to switch back to the new CLI, you can use the following:

brew untap ibm-swift/kitura
brew tap ibm-swift/kitura
brew upgrade kitura
