lando start

Starts an app.

On first run this will build all relevant containers needed to run the app. On subsequent runs it will simply start the built containers.

Containers are cached!

If you start an app with a new service or container it will need to pull that container image down. This can take a moment depending on your internet connection. Subsequent pulls to that container or service are cached so they should be much faster.
