Create file example.py:

#!/usr/bin/env python
from yaost import project
from yaost import scad

p = Project('example project')

@p.add_part
def simple_cube():
    return scad.cube(10, 10, 10)
    
if __name__ == '__main__':
    p.run()

Build scad file:

$ python3 example.py build-scad

Now you can see your scad model:

$ openscad scad/simple-cube.scad

To build stl, run:

$ python3 example.py build-stl

Your model will be at stl/simple-cube.stl

You can run yaost in watch mode, it regenerates scad each time when you save python file:

$ python example.py watch

The open file with

$ openscad scad/simple-cube.scad

Chane something in example.py (eg. cube(30, 10, 10)) you should see changes in openscad viewe immediately.
