Command line: what is the point of learning it for web dev?

Hi everyone!

I’m doing the Front-end Engineer path, and I started the command line module without understanding why do we need to learn it. I know it must be important (otherwise it wouldn’t be there) but I would like to know exactly why.
Why not just using regular windows explorer for navigating and creating files?

Thank you!!

Hi Beatriz!

The most important reason for learning command line navigation is that the CL is the way most people use Git.

I don’t know if you have come across Git version control in your course yet but it’s a very important tool for any web dev. There are GUIs available for Git that mean you don’t have to use the CL but most people prefer to use the CL to interact with Git.

Happy developing!
