Project setup with line command

Let's start, to initialize project configuration file. Please go to your LINE Developer Console and get Channel ID and Channel secret. If you do not want to issue a short-lived access token later on, you will also need a long-lived access token.

To issue a short-lived access token, run the following command.

line token --issue
