Creating Scratch org using CLI - Salesforce DX

To know about scratch Orgs and the prerequisites required to create Scratch org refer to the previous post-

In this post, we will try to create a scratch org and push configuration and Metadata to it using CLI.

Let's start by creating a project on our local machine. Open the command prompt and type the below command.

mkdir my_WOS_project  
cd my_WOS_project

The above command will create a folder called my_WOS_project and change the active directory to it.

Now we will clone a project from the GIT repository. 
git clone

now lets change directory to ScratchOrgDemo
cd ScratchOrgDemo

now let's create scratch org and name it as MyOrg using the below command
sfdx force:org:create -s -f config/project-scratch-def.json -a "MyOrg "

after few seconds you would see the message containing the scratch org Id 
and username.

To open the newly created scratch org using CLI type
sfdx force:org:open

lastly, we will push the repository we cloned to the scratch org using CLI
Simply type
sfdx force:source:push

once the metadata is pushed to the org, open the org again to see the changes.
A classic app called Scratch org demo would be present with the visualforce tab . 
See video for step by step instructions.
