# 1. Basic concepts¶

Termite uses the yaml format to define commands and tasks. The wikipedia has a good description of the format.

The mains entry point is a yaml file, called termite.yaml, Which should be in your current working directory.

In termite we have two basic elements, the commands, and the tasks. A command is a list of tasks, and should have a name, which is basically an identifier. Let’s see a basic termite.yaml file:

- command:
name: dev

termite dev
