If you're using forest init, it means your admin backend should already be running locally. If you used the default values used during installation, your endpoint should be http://localhost:3310
Since we need to know your project's local endpoint in order to create your development environment, we've left the same default values. You can just hit "Enter" to use those; otherwise simply fill the host and port to fit your situation.
[? Enter your local admin backend host: (localhost) localhost
[? Enter your local admin backend port: (3310)
At this point, your development environment will be created! 🎉
Note that your new development environnment is identified by the FOREST_ENV_SECRET in your .env file. If you had no such file, it will have been automatically created.
(Optional) Connecting your database
To work properly in your local environment, your Forest Admin project needs to be connected to the corresponding database (which could be local or remote, it's your choice.)
As a result, we've added an extra step to the forest init command to help you set up your database. If you accept the help, you'll be taken through a few prompts and your DATABASE_URL (and potentially other environment variables) will be generated and added to your .env file.
