What is Aragon and what does it do
Aragon is a project to empower freedom by creating tools for decentralized governance.
These tools help people freely organize without borders or intermediaries. Instead of bureaucracy, subjectivity, and trust, smart contracts have opened the door to experiment with governance at the speed of software.
The Aragon stack helps you develop software for human organization. From the smart contracts to the user interface, Aragon takes care of the most important pieces of infrastructure to deliver censorship-resistant, decentralized and upgradeable apps.

What you need to get started building with Aragon:
Make sure you have at least Node.js
We recommend using the Metamask browser extension to send transactions to the blockchain.
Install the aragonCLI
From the command line run:
npm i -g @aragon/cli
Once we have this package installed we can start building DAOs.
To create your first DAO run:
aragon init foo.aragonpm.eth cd foo aragon run
Congrats you have just created a DAO! It’s running on your local network and as soon as it's ready it will open in your browser at localhost:3000!
Now that you’ve built a DAO let's take a look at the docs or you can jump into the tutorial.
