crosstalk-cli is a command-line interface for interacting with Crosstalk Swarm.

Security Notice

While Crosstalk is in the current alpha development stage, it's messages are being heavily logged for debugging purposes. If you create an account, please DO NOT provide a password that you cannot afford to make known to me.

Naturally, this will not be the case as Crosstalk matures.

Aside from the above consideration, your passwords are being securely one-way hashed using thousands of iterations of cryptographic one-way hash with individual and application-wide salt components.

Installation

npm install -g crosstalk-cli

Usage

~$ crosstalk --help
