Running an example

So you have installed outcome on you machine and can now invoke it from the command line. Great! Why not run take a quick dive into things by running an example.

Even though outcome is designed around running distributed simulations with multiple machines, there is nothing stopping us from running it on just a single machine locally. Indeed it's very easy to do:

outcome run <path-to-scenario>

The above command will spin up a simulation instance on our machine using the provided path to a scenario directory. By default it will start in an interactive mode, which can be seen as somewhat similar to a classic REPL — we will be able to step through the simulation and query data in-between the steps.

Now we only need an actual scenario we can run.
