Create a Realm App with Realm CLI¶
You can use the MongoDB Realm CLI to create a new server-side Realm app.

Run the App Creation Command¶
The CLI can create an app and copy its configuration files to a local directory with a single command. The command asks you to specify the app name and the Atlas project that should contain the app. You can configure the command with flags or interactively.

The command also supports additional flags that you can optionally include to customize your app. The following table lists common flags you might use:
Choose a template app to start from.
Defines the app's deployment model.
Defines a local app's deployment region.
Defines the app's environment.
For more details and additional flags, see the CLI documentation for the create command.
