Our goal is to get
cleos up and running so you can issue
getcommands on the mainnet, nothing more. This is particularly useful if you want to get unique info, or later want to run permission commands on your wallets or contracts where existing tools may not help.
This could get dated so you should always check on EOSIO’s website here (https://developers.eos.io/eosio-home/docs/introduction).
Fastest way to do this is with
brew (https://brew.sh/). After you have brew installed, run these commands.
brew tap eosio/eosio brew install eosio
Believe it or not, you should be able to run
cleos commands on mainnet already.
Test it out.
cleos -u https://api.eosnewyork.io:443 get account gm2diobtgmge
To interact with tokens and wallets you will need to have keosd running, but that is a story for another day.
