How to use the ERPNext-Production downloadable VM to development (trying the frappe Tutorial)?

I´ve installed the ERPNext-Production.ova and it works OK.
Now I would like to start the tutorial (Library Management) training:
1 created the app
2 created the site
3 installed the app on the site

@sjunio welcome to the forum!

If you want to develop apps, use the developer VM.

If you want to continue using production, you will have to stop supervisor and nginx and use bench start to run your site.

Go to /home/frappe/frappe-bench and do bench start (after stopping supervisor and nginx)

@rmehta is there a developer VM available for download? That would simplify things!

Let me ask a question:
Why should I use full Developer Mode and the bench tool if I can go to the Developer Option on the site and access things like Custom Scripts and DocTypes after creating a basic app/site?


bench new-app
bench new-site

works within production environment, it seems enough for learning or a project (my purposes so far).
