Although it is possible to program directly using the command line interface of
melrōse, it is much more convenient to use the Visual Studio Code editor with the Melrose Plugin which uses the HTTP API of the same running program.
You can start the program
melrōse without any flags.
You can use the following flags to change its behavior.
-http string address on which to listen for HTTP requests (default ":8118") -i string read a program from a file -v boolean verbose logging
Commands to control the program itself are prefix with a colon
