There is a very extensive documentation of the Candid IDL DFINITY has developed and opensourced on github recently, make sure to check it out to get a background on design decisions and inner workings
How does one install the candid
didc cli? I don’t see it noted on the repo.
I think its being use at 3:19 in the video docs.
❯ wget -O $HOME/bin/didc https://github.com/dfinity/candid/releases/download/2020-09-02/didc-macos ❯ chmod +x $HOME/bin/didc ❯ set -Ua fish_user_paths $HOME/bin/didc ❯ which didc /Users/mandalarian/bin/didc
It’s also downloaded as part of the SDK. For me it ends up in
~/.cache/dfinity/versions/$VERSION/didc - along with
moc et al - can grab it from there, too.
