Step by step

  1. There are a number of ways to build an agent.
    • We recommended you build an AEA project with the CLI tool as mentioned in the quick start guide. See information on the CLI tool here.
    • [Coming soon!] Using the CLI fetch command, pull in an already built project and run as normal.
    • The last option is to install the AEA without the CLI tool with pip install aea and, from there, import classes directly. See the guide for this here.
  2. Set up your skills.
  3. Code the protocols.
  4. Add the connections.
  5. Scaffold any of the above resources with the scaffolding tool. This guide shows you step by step how to develop a skill.
  6. Now, build and run your agent using the quick start guide.
