You can make applications accessible on the Internet Computer blockchain mainnet by deploying the canister smart contract that make up the application project.
To deploy on the Internet Computer network for the first time:
Open a new terminal and navigate to your project directory.
Start the Internet Computer network, if necessary.
In most cases, this step is only necessary if you are running the Internet Computer network locally.
If you were installing canisters on a remote network, you would include the
--networkcommand-line option to perform tasks on that network.
Verify you have canister identifiers for all of the canisters you want to deploy.
Deploy all of the canisters by running the following command:
dfx canister install --all
